With instant photo sharing and selfies taking over the internet, a camera-ready smile is great to have. If you have braces, Dr. Cynthia Wong wants to flaunt that shiny smile of yours and don’t be shy. If you recently got your braces removed, we expect you to flaunt that straight smile everywhere! Here are some tips to take pictures you’ll be happy to send to your friends!
- Be natural – when it’s picture time, smile gently. That way, your face looks relaxed. Your mouth opens slightly, and your lower lip matches the curve of your upper teeth.
- Check your teeth and gums – getting your smile camera-ready sometimes calls for a little behind the scenes prep work. If your pearly whites have yellowed with age, try an over-the-counter whitening product or pay us a visit! Also, don’t forget about taking care of your gums. They play a critical role in your nice smile. So keep them in good shape by brushing, flossing, and rinsing with a mouthwash every day.
- Practice – your perfect smile may not happen overnight, but if you have a big photo event like a wedding or a graduation coming up, it doesn’t hurt to try out your grin in front of the mirror!
