Tips For a Picture Perfect Smile

Everyone wants to capture special moments and today it is easier to take pictures that will be treasured for years to come. But, are you ready to take the perfect photo? We here at Palmetto Dental Associates want you to look your best when you’re smiling for the camera. Here are a few tips that we have to help you capture that beautiful smile of yours.


Tilt Your Head

Instead of looking straight at the camera, try turning or tilting your head slightly. This often presents a more flattering angle and can hide small facial asymmetries. Do you have a “good side”? If so, make sure you use that side. But remember, your eyes should be looking directly at the camera.


Moisten Your Teeth

You want your smile to shine. Just before the picture is snapped, run your tongue over your teeth to give them a little extra shine.



It is always good to have a natural smile. So be sure to relax and don’t clench your teeth. You can even pose with your teeth slightly parted. Make sure your lips are in a more relaxed position. You don’t want your smile to look forced. The best way to relax is to think of a happy memory. When you are happy, your smile will stand out naturally. 


Get a Teeth Cleaning

Before the big event, you can ensure that your smile looks its best with professional cleaning at our office. We help remove layers of plaque and tartar on visible tooth surfaces, as well as between teeth and under the gumline. Having clean teeth can whiten and brighten your smile.


Get Teeth Whitening

Teeth whitening is a great way to make your smile brighter. With a few in-office and take-home whitening options, it is a simple way to enhance your smile. We even offer other cosmetic treatments such as bonding or dental veneers. We can help you get the smile you’ve always wanted.


We want you to have that picture-perfect smile. If you would like more information about professional teeth cleaning or cosmetic dentistry, please call Palmetto Dental Associates to schedule a consultation today.
