How to Have the Perfect Smile in Every Picture; Tips from Denthub

Always shine and smile! We are happy to share great tricks with you to help you for the perfect smile. It is always the season of endless pictures and smiling for all these photos can be exhausting, and your smile can begin to look a little more forced and unnatural with every snap of the camera. Here Denthub will guide you to show off that beautiful smile of yours in the best way possible with five quick tips.

1. NEVER HAVE YOUR TOP AND BOTTOM TEETH TOUCHING EACH OTHER

This is a tip that many people are unaware of, but it can make all the difference in your smile. When you smile, if your top and bottom row of teeth are pushed together, clamped down on each other, or even simply touching, this makes your neck muscles tense and sometimes bulge out of your skin in an unflattering way. Keep a small space between your two rows of teeth for a more natural, softer smile.

Furthermore, if your top and bottom teeth touch each other while speaking you would probably hear a lot of strange clacking sounds as you talk because your upper and lower teeth would be constantly knocking or grinding against each other. You might have an orthodontic issue that needs to be corrected, as Denthub, we will be able to recommend an appropriate treatment plan to correct the dental challenge.

2. NO JOKER SMILE!

A relaxed and genuine smile is always the best smile, not an obligatory “joker smile.” We know that your teeth are stunning, but when showing all your teeth, it generally seems forced and unpleasant. Avoid this joker smile, simply be yourself! Do not try to force your smile to be bigger than it naturally is.

3. WET YOUR TEETH BEFORE YOU SMILE

This a simple trick that can make your smile look a little shinier and brighter. Right before you smile for your smile-perfect photo, simply run your tongue over your teeth. This will prevent your smile from looking dull. Instead, your teeth will look smoother, shinier, and “pop” a little more.

4. KEEP THE CAMERA ABOVE EYE LEVEL

Having the camera below your eye level will not result in beautiful images. You risk getting the dreaded double chin, it can also distort your lovely facial features. Keeping the camera above eye level will prevent any unflattering angles, while also making your smile look brighter, happier, and even more natural. So, keep your head up and keep the camera higher! We don’t want anything to take the attention off of your gorgeous smile.

5. RELAX AND BE YOURSELF!

Out of all the tips Denthub has for you, this is definitely the most important. Before the picture is taken, take a deep breath and relax! Your smile will look the most beautiful when you are relaxed, genuine, and thinking happy thoughts. Act like you’re smiling at someone you love. Regardless of how you do it, relax, have fun, and just be yourself for your most natural, gorgeous smile.
