How to Give Yourself a Photogenic Smile

Have you ever walked out of the Department of Motor Vehicles looking at your drivers’ license picture wondering what happened from home till now to look like that? We all have those days where we want a great picture, but no matter what we do, we just can’t seem to master the look. There are some tips and tricks to get that picture you are looking for. Here are some options we found.


One of the best things that you can do to get a photogenic smile is to make sure your smile is bright and white. This can be accomplished by coming in and getting a whitening procedure a week or two before the event. Then, the white looks more natural in your smile.

Next, by putting your tongue behind your teeth when you smile, it will avoid that “too big” of a smile look. Also, for women, you want to make sure that you wear makeup that complements your smile. If you wear a lot of orange makeup, it can give your teeth a yellow look.


Lastly, cosmetic dentistry can help. If you are not confident or even somewhat embarrassed by your teeth, there are options to help. Maybe you have crooked teeth or gaps here and there. Whatever the problem is, cosmetic dentistry is an option. Having a smile you can be proud to show can raise your self-esteem, plus mentally put you in a happy place where you want to show it off to everyone.
