Taking a selfie and posting it all over the internet is a massive craze in this day and age. With the obsession of being popular and gaining as many ‘likes’ as possible, people are putting more time into their appearances than ever. When you see a camera or a photo, the first thing that pops into many people’s minds is a smile. A dental professional can attest that a smile is also something that can leave a big impression on new people in both casual and working environments because they tend to say a lot about a person and a good smile can make people feel more welcome and at ease than a smile that isn’t as inviting. With all this in mind, you can see why people are obsessed with dentistry and their smiles. The following are some of the things you should try to achieve those ultimate pearly whites.
When you are getting your photo taken, your dental professional will tell you to make sure the smile you are giving is gentle and natural. If you do this, your face will look relaxed and in turn, better. To achieve this, open your mouth slightly and make sure the curve of your upper teeth matches your lower lip. A big beaming smile can occur naturally at times, but many of these smiles tend to make an awkward photo.
If you tend to spot a double chin in your smiling photographs, then you need to take a look at what your posture is like. If you are a slouched over person and keep your head bent too far forward, then you aren’t going to like how you look when you smile. To change this, you should consider slightly turning your head and dropping your chin. This will change the appearance of your face and will make it look less square in the camera.
Choosing a lipstick that matches your skin tone can make your teeth look brighter and whiter. Deep and dark reds are normally the go-to color for the best results. If you want to hide yellow stains that are visible on your teeth, then you should try a pink-based or blue-based undertone.
Your Newmarket dental office recommends having good oral health because it is essential if you want to keep your teeth clean, healthy and intact. Brushing and flossing twice a day and making sure your brushing technique is perfected is the first step to keeping your teeth and gums in good condition and out of the dentistry chair. You need to consider visiting a practice, such as this Newmarket Dentist, every six months. A dentist in Newmarket will be able to give you advice on how to maintain your oral health and they can correct or perfect your smile through dental whitening and repairing procedures.
Unless you have been gifted in this department, the perfect smile isn’t something that can develop overnight. If you need to make sure you have a great smile prepared for a big event, such as a wedding or graduation, then you should get yourself in front of a mirror and start practicing your dentistry skills. This way, you can see what you look like and can find the best smile type, angle and posture combination that suits you.
