When there’s a big event or celebration coming up, you want to look your best. Whether it’s a family event such as a wedding or christening, a school celebration like a prom or graduation, or a summer vacation with friends or family, there’s going to be a lot of pictures taken.
So, you take the time to pick out your outfit, maybe do your hair and makeup, and maybe even try to get into shape before the event by eating healthily and working out. One thing you might not think of before these kinds of events is how your teeth will look in photos. So, let’s have a look at some ways you can make sure you have a picture-perfect smile in time for that big event.
You don’t want an off-white smile in photos that are going to be shown for years to come. A bright, white smile can make all the difference. Teeth whitening toothpastes can help to brighten your smile over time, but for a quick fix before an event, you can visit your family dentist for a quick and painless whitening treatment. We use Opalescence gels in our treatment to remove stains and brighten your smile.
If you have any structural issues with your teeth that you’re insecure about, then you can have this treated by your dentist to help improve your smile, as long as you see to it with enough time before the big event. Treatments such as tooth replacements, dental implants, and Invisalign can solve problems such as missing, chipped, or crooked teeth, giving you a full, straight smile to show off in pictures.
Practice that smile
As well as the way your teeth look, the way that you smile can also make or break a photograph. You may feel silly doing it, but practicing your smile in front of a mirror can help you nail it when the time comes for photos. Some people feel awkward smiling for posed photographs and their smile comes off as fake as a result of that. Practicing your perfect smile and seeing how it looks in the mirror helps you act more natural in front of the camera and strike a pose that looks good. Remember, practice makes perfect!
