When you look in the mirror what do you see – a beautiful smile that you can be proud of or a more unsightly smile that you can’t help but feel embarrassed and ashamed of? If it’s the latter, don’t worry because you’re not alone.

The good news is that if you dislike your smile, you can easily change that simply by finding ways to redesign it. Intrigued? Wondering how you can redesign your smile? Then read on for a range of tips and ideas for simple ways that you can perfect your smile and create the most photographic ‘look’ that you can feel happier and more content with.
Take care of your teeth
One of the first steps to achieving the most beautiful smile is to take care of your teeth. If you already take care of your teeth but still aren’t happy with their appearance, then it’s important to consider what you dislike about your pearly whites. Are they perhaps not so white anymore and have become yellow or stained? Does the lack of straightness impact your view of your teeth? Do you need dental work? Don’t panic – whatever the problem, it’s fixable. The best thing that you can do is opt to see your dentist, who can tell you whether you require a quick scale and polish or potentially some affordable dental implants. Take your oral health seriously – don’t skimp when it comes to dental care.
Be selective about your lipstick
Did you know that the lipstick color that you choose can have a huge impact on how ‘picture-perfect’ your smile looks? The truth is that if you ask any makeup artist, they will tell you that certain lipstick tones don’t help to make your smile look as beautiful as it could do. When choosing a lipstick, if you want to make your teeth look whiter, it’s essential that you avoid coral undertones, as orangey lipsticks can make your teeth look yellow. Whereas, lipsticks with red or pink undertones tend to make teeth look whiter.
Perfect your pout
For a prettier, ‘picture-perfect’ smile, it’s essential that you learn how to perfect that pout – aka learn how to smile to create the best look possible. Believe it or not, we aren’t all born with the innate ability to smile perfectly, smiling is something that can take practice. Take a photo of yourself and take the time to consider what you don’t like about your smile. Once you’ve outlined what the issues are, such as showing too many teeth or grimacing, you can then work on correcting how you smile to create the more ‘picture-perfect’ smile that you’re after.
So there you have it, everything that you need to know about redesigning your smile and creating a more ‘picture-perfect’ look. Take note of the tips and ideas above, and you should be able to recreate your smile and learn to love your photos far more.
