Building a perfect smile is something that takes special care, attention, and dedication. Having a celebrity-caliber smile isn’t just something that happens overnight, but, with a little bit of practice and with some help from Audubon Dental Center, having a perfect smile is not as elusive as you may think.
A recent UC-San Francisco research study found that there are 19 different types of smiles, so it might be a good idea to start working on your smile at large with your local dentist while also practicing your smile technique on your own.
Below, we go over a few ways to build a perfect smile, as well as ways to maintain that perfect smile once you have it. At Audubon Dental Center, we provide education to our patients as well as expertise offered by our oral health specialists like Dr. Pantano. We’re always here to guide you along your new path to perfect oral health!
Sharpen Your Brushing Technique
Many of us are using improper brushing technique, often without even realizing it! Just by taking great care of our teeth, it will make us want to smile more often, and our smiles will become more genuine and less forced as a result. Use circular motions, brush multiple minutes with a soft-bristle brush, and make sure you never skip out on your tongue, which is a hotbed for bacterial invaders.
Practice Smiling Often
Smiling exerts far less energy than frowning, even though it might sometimes seem like an exercise to smile. When we frown our face gets tight and our brow becomes furrowed, which creates tension and stress. Lighten things up by smiling, even in the face of adversity. When you walk around smiling, it’s infectious and people will want to know what the secret is.
Do the Things You Enjoy
We are at our happiest when we’re doing the things that fulfill us, whether it’s being fit, helping others, or engaging with family and friends. There’s nothing better to put a smile on a person’s face than being in the exact place they want to be.
