Tips for a Camera-Ready Smile

With instant photo sharing taking over the internet, you should always be ready for your next snapshot. After all, your smile is the first thing people notice about you. At Clareview and Belmont Dental Associates, we are your best resource for pearly whites. We can whiten your smile with a cosmetic procedure (teeth whitening) or simply restore the natural color of your teeth through dental checkups. However, if you can’t go the cosmetic route at the moment, follow these tips to show off the smile you already have!

  • 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!

If your smile needs a little improvement, please give us a call to discuss your treatment options. To schedule an appointment with Clareview and Belmont Dental Associates by calling 780-475-5922 or visiting our website,
