Whether you're preparing for family pictures, engagement photos, or a snap for your school yearbook, it is important to ready your smile. A great smile is a necessity for a beautiful final photo. If you want to get your smile ready for an upcoming photo shoot, these tips can help.
When you smile in a mirror, are there any imperfections that stand out to you? Perhaps you chipped your tooth several years ago or maybe your teeth have shifted positions. Whatever imperfections are troubling you, we have the solutions to fix them. Dental bonding can take care of minor issues like chips, improving the shape of the tooth. For widespread alignment issues, orthodontic work or other restorations may be recommended.
Whiten Your Teeth
Another way to improve the look of your smile is to whiten your teeth. While there are many store-bought whitening systems, our in-office whitening is the most effective way to get a beautiful, white smile. Remember that after you whiten you'll need to take care to avoid staining foods and drinks. This will help your smile to stay photo ready for as long as possible.
Treat Gum Disease
When readying your smile for a photo, make sure all of your attention isn't focused on the teeth. You need to be concerned with your gums, as well. Gum disease can dramatically alter the appearance of your smile. In the early stages, the gums may appear red and swollen, and they could bleed easily. In more advanced gum disease, they could start to pull away from the teeth. This will leave your teeth looking longer, which can change the appearance of your smile.
If you are readying your smile for any upcoming photo session, give us a call. In addition to your regular cleanings and evaluations, we can recommend services that will leave you with a beautiful smile worthy of any photo.
