Preparing for an event, beach party, or a photoshoot? There’s a lot to think about, right? There’s your outfit, the venue, transportation, food and drinks, and more. But don’t fret! You will have a great big day for sure. At the end of the day, you get to sit down, relax and look at photos taken by Boudoir Photography Edmonton. There’s plenty of opportunities to enjoy and show off your smile. 

The question is – is your smile camera-ready? If your answer is anything else but yes, then you are in the right place! Here’s how you can get your smile shining bright for any special occasion.

Tip #1: Whiten Your Teeth

Whatever occasion or event you’re in, white is almost always a cornerstone of all color palettes around you. If you’re not confident about your smile, you may become self-conscious and ruin the day. That’s the last thing you want to happen. Gladly, a quick visit to your dentist may just help you with that. Many dental offices offer Teeth Whitening services for an instant and long-lasting photo-perfect smile.

If you don’t want or don’t have the budget for teeth whitening, you can always use at-home teeth whiteners including whitening toothpaste, mouthwash, strips, and gels. Including them into your dental hygiene regimen will protect and boost your smile for the camera.

Tip #2: Watch What You Eat & Drink

Are you a coffee lover like me? Unfortunately, this isn’t the best for our smiles. If you’re days or weeks away from an event, it’s better to stay away from foods and drinks that stain your teeth – coffee, wine, soft drinks, blueberries, and tea, among others. Don’t forget the biggest culprit of all – tobacco! I know it’s neither food nor drink but this is the holy grail so remember it.

What you can consume instead are foods rich in calcium (dairy products) and firm fruits and vegetables (celery and apples, for example). These all help keep your teeth bright and white for the occasion.

Tip #3: Brush Your Teeth Regularly

I know this is too simple of a tip, but regular tooth brushing is key to keeping healthy and clean teeth. Don’t brush too hard though as this could damage your tooth enamel and cause receding gums. To take away this human error, you can use an electric toothbrush that has rotating heads and maintains stable pressure to make sure each tooth receives the right care. Regular tooth brushing is sure to give you a bright smile.

Tip #4: Drink Plenty Of Water

Do you know that water has fluoride? Fluorine in water is added at a controlled and safe level for public consumption to help reduce tooth decay. This strengthens teeth, prevents cavities, and helps with overall oral health.  

Tip #5: Wear Lipsticks The Right Way

You might wonder why commercial models in magazines use hot red lipsticks almost always. One of the reasons being, the contrast between the white teeth and the red lipstick makes the smile appear even brighter. But you can’t always wear red lipstick on all occasions, right? So, feel free to use other shades that compliment your smile best. Wearing the right shade and putting on a glossy finish can make your smile appear shinier and ready for the camera.

Final Thoughts

There’s a famous line that says, ‘You’re Never Fully Dressed Without A Smile’. So, whatever occasion you’re in, wear your best smile always! A perfect smile doesn’t happen overnight – but use these tips and you’re halfway to achieving it. Confidently show your white teeth with a natural and unforced smile to turn heads on any occasion. The camera will love you whichever angle it gets.
