Smiling has innumerable benefits for your personal and professional life: You owe it to yourself to have the best possible smile.
Our smile experts at New Age Dental know how you can better your beautiful smile.
Here are 6 ways to improve your smile.
1. Brushing & Flossing
This is an obvious one, but that doesn’t change how important it is. Nothing will improve your smile more than keeping them clean and healthy. And these are the two essential tools you’ll need to keep your pearly whites in tip-top shapes. You should do both of these activities at least twice a day, every day, for two minutes at a time.
2. Practice Makes Perfect
Practice your smile in front of a mirror. Your facial muscles are no different than the rest of your muscles: They can be improved through training. By working out your facial muscles you’ll get better at smiling by making it look more authentic and relaxed. You can even do certain exercises in front of the mirror to improve your smile!
3. Facial Exercises
According to WorldWideHealth.com, facial exercises can be as effective as a surgical facelift for improving skin tone and elasticity, reducing visible lines, and helping to perfect your smile.
Just like any other part of your body, there are muscles in your face. These muscles can be firmed and strengthened through exercise, which helps to increase blood flow and improve muscle tone. Face exercises not only will improve your smile, but can also help you look younger and healthier.
Try these two facial exercises to help you attain the perfect smile. (These exercises can also be used in conjunction with cosmetic dentistry procedures.)
The silly rabbit
In this exercise, you’ll tone your cheek muscles while increasing the flexibility and control of your smile. You may or may not look in a mirror while performing this exercise. (If you have a tendency to laugh at silly faces, you should probably skip the mirror.) Here are the steps for this face exercise:
Smile as wide as you can, without opening your lips. Try for an ear-to-ear grin.
Wiggle your nose like a rabbit until you feel your cheek muscles engage with the smile.
Hold the pose for 5 seconds.
Repeat steps 1 through 3, 10 times
The face lift exercise
One particular facial muscle, the quadratus labli superioris, is essential for maintaining a youthful appearance. Developing this muscle helps to prevent facial sagging and ensure resiliency. Below are two exercises to help utilize this muscle to your advantage.
The smile line eraser
With this exercise, you can work at reducing the appearance of fine lines around your mouth, helping you look younger and giving you a more natural, brilliant smile. In yoga, this exercise is referred to as the fish pose. Here’s how to do it:
Pucker up: purse your lips as dramatically as possible by sucking in your cheeks and rolling your lips out.
Attempt to smile while you’re puckering.
Hold this pose until there’s a mild aching sensation in the muscles around your mouth, then release.
This exercise should be done only once a day, in order to avoid straining the muscles of your face.
When it comes to getting a whiter and brighter smile, there are a variety of teeth-whitening products you can try. Your main options are in-office and at-home bleaching. Before starting any whitening treatment, you should speak with your dentist. Your dentist will tell you what, if any, whitening procedures will work best for you.
