Perfect Your Smile

Although getting a smile from someone else can brighten our day, we can be hypercritical of our own smile looks. In fact, many people feel that their smile is the feature they are most self-conscious of. Fortunately, there are easy ways to enhance your smile and boost your self-confidence in the process!
If you want to smile as often as you can and feel confident about the way it looks here are some tips to ensure that your teeth, lips, and of course your smile always looks amazing!

Keep your teeth bright
For many people, staining or dull teeth can make them reluctant to smile. If you want to brighten your teeth, there are plenty of options available. You may choose to have your teeth whitened at your dentist’s office.
Alternatively, choosing the right toothpaste can have a major impact on the whiteness of your teeth. Some are designed to remove stains, for example, while others claim to increase whiteness. While many people maintain charcoal toothpaste keeps their teeth pearly white, others favor a toothpaste with a relatively high fluoride content. 
Ask your dentist which toothpaste is best for your whitening your teeth and be sure to follow their advice. Often, enhancing your flossing routine and avoiding food and drinks which are known to cause staining is enough to dramatically enhance the appearance of your teeth.
However, there are beauty hacks you can use to boost brightness too. Lipsticks in plum shades are best for highlighting your teeth while accentuating your eyes will draw eyes away from your teeth. Similarly, it is worth experimenting with bronzer if you want to improve the brightness of your teeth. Different shades will complement your teeth more effectively and make them appear whiter. Try out a few different undertones until you find the one that works best for you.

Practice lip care
Our lips are exposed to cold temperatures, as well as hot foods and drinks, and yet we don’t give them as much care as we should. You may wear lipstick or lip gloss every day, but how long do you spend moisturizing and exfoliating your lips?
Restructuring your beauty regime to include effective lip care will have a massive impact on your appearance, as well as perfecting your smile. If you normally slap a little lip balm on when the weather turns cold, you’re going to need to amp things up a little.
Your lips should be moisturized every day, so take the time to do so in the morning and before you go to bed. While there are plenty of moisturizers designed for your lips on the market, many skin moisturizers can be used on lips too. 
In addition to this, you’re going to want to exfoliate your lips on a regular basis. While over-exfoliation can lead to sore, dry or cracked lips, a regular exfoliation routine will minimize flaky skin and cracked lips. Many people maintain that exfoliation should occur no more than once a week but you can experiment with your own schedule. 
As the lips can be fairly sensitive, gentle exfoliation is best. Both sugar and salt are natural exfoliators, so these are ideal for use on your lips, although sugar does taste better! Mix a few grains with a lip moisturizer or even mashed banana and apply to your lips before washing it off. 

Wearing lip balm is essential, particularly if you are going to be in extreme weather conditions. The right lip balm will help to protect your lips from the elements and keep you smiling. Keep them everywhere to help you! I know people joke, but I really do have a car lip balm, bedside table lip balm, purse lip balm, and more! During the winter a girl has to do what a girl has to do! 

Visit your dentist
If you want to perfect your smile, visiting your dentist regularly is the best way to do it. As well as keeping your teeth and mouth healthy, your dentist can address any cosmetic concerns you may have. 
Many people opt for orthodontic work to enhance their smile, as this can realign teeth and make them straighter. There are various different options that can adjust the placement of teeth and give you a smile you’re proud of. 
If you have gaps in your teeth or have lost a tooth, a dental bridge could be the answer. People tend to be highly self-conscious of missing teeth, regardless of the cause. However, a bridge acts as a permanent replacement for your missing tooth and it won’t be noticeable at all. Your dentist will take care to match the dental bridge to the surrounding teeth, so you can smile without feeling self conscious. 
Good oral hygiene obviously makes it easier to maintain your smile too. With regular brushing and flossing, you can minimize the risk of staining and cavities, which will keep your teeth looking great. And keep those regular visits to your dentist. It will ensure your teeth and gums remain in great condition. 
Boost your confidence
When you’re lacking in confidence, it often shows in your smile. If you really want that megawatt smile that is lit from within, boosting your confidence could be the way to do it. Being kind to yourself and showing yourself compassion is the first step to enhancing your self-esteem. We are our own toughest critics! Try to stop yourself when you recognize when your internal monologue is being self-critical or negative. Instead try to think about 3 things you are proud of about yourself. Being able to adjust your mindset will have a major impact on your confidence levels, which will shine through every time you smile. 
If you have low self-esteem, it may feel like you have nothing to smile about at times. By working on your self-confidence, however, you’ll soon begin to feel happier and more fulfilled. With naturally higher levels of self-esteem, you’ll smile more and feel confident about doing so. 
Maintaining the perfect smile
Your physical health, as well as your mental and emotional health, play a significant role in creating and maintaining the perfect smile. When your gums, teeth, and lips are healthy and you’re in a good place mentally, this is reflected in your smile. 
With everything you need to create the perfect smile, the right lip colors, bronzers and foundation will showcase your smile. In fact, with the right oral care routine and lip care regime, it won’t be long until your smile is your favorite feature!
