A perfect smile smile is closer than you think
Rumour has it there is more to the ‘perfect smile’ than the straight, pearly white teeth that you can find plastered across every social media platform and magazine nowadays.
In fact, there is even scientific evidence to suggest that there is a particular way of smiling that is considered more attractive to others. Read on if you want to learn the tricks of the trade for a perfect smile that will be certain to dazzle.
It turns out the ideal smile goes beyond your teeth. Dentists and researchers have found that several other dimensions including your face shape and size, your lips and even your gums contribute to how others perceive your smile. Now whilst you might be thinking that this is going to require major cosmetic surgery, going far beyond Franksmile’s cosmetic aligner treatments, worry not, there are some more manageable (and more affordable) solutions too! All you need for now is a mirror.
A perfect smile in 6 simple steps
When it comes to smiling, 8 is the magic number and when posing for photos you should always aim to show 8 teeth.
Take a breath in and smile as you breathe out. Doing this should help to relax the muscles in your face and result in a more natural and attractive smile.
Place your tongue directly behind your teeth as you smile - trust us, this works!
Take care of your lips. It totally makes sense that the appearance of your lips can influence the way your smile is perceived by others, but it isn’t actually where many of us go when trying to enhance our smiles. Simply exfoliating your lips (a toothbrush works for this) and investing in a lip balm that lives in your pocket every day can make a world of difference.
If you wear makeup, you’re also in luck. Research suggests that red or pink lipsticks with blue undertones will automatically give your teeth that post-whitening glow we all crave.
Smile with your eyes - it should be obvious that you are smiling just from looking at your eyes. Aim for extra lift in the cheekbones and squint ever so slightly with your eyes.
Despite all of the scientific evidence supporting these tips for the perfect smile, we can’t help but think all it really takes is a lot of laughter, self-confidence and a helping hand from Franksmile’s aligner treatment of course!
