How to make the most of a smile

NEAL FAMILY DENTAL - Dr. Alan NealIn the age of the selfie, a camera-ready smile is a great thing to have. You don't have to be a celebrity to have a movie-star grin, however. By following just a few of my tips, you'll be lighting up every picture you're in!

1.) Stand up straight—If you slouch, your smile might not look how you like it. Turn your head slightly and drop your chin in your next picture for a picture-perfect smile.

2.) Be natural—Smile with your eyes for a more sincere looking photo. Thinking of something funny or something positive can help jumpstart a smile.

3.) Check your gums and teeth—Getting your smile camera-ready calls for a little prep work. Brush, floss, and rinse with an antibacterial mouthwash every day. Try a whitening product if your teeth have yellowed a little with age. And schedule an appointment with Neal Family Dental today to repair any cracked or broken teeth.

4.) Practice—Your perfect smile doesn't just happen overnight. Test out your grin in front of a mirror to see how your natural, unforced smile looks and feels. You can also play around with turning your head to find your best angles. Practicing often will make smiling a more natural reaction as well.

For your best smile, schedule an appointment with Neal Family Dental in Canby today!
