Learn How to Flash a Picture‐Perfect Smile for the Camera!

When a special event is on the horizon, like a family vacation or a wedding, do you dread the camera? If you lack confidence in your smile, it could show in your photos.  However, by following just a few easy tips, you can relax and learn to love your photos!
Our Smile Ballard dental team has compiled this list of simple steps you can take to learn how to smile successfully for any photo!
Practice Makes Perfect
• Practice smiling in the mirror to find your best angle and to find the smile that looks most genuine. The most attractive smile is one that shines through in your eyes!
• Feel the difference in your muscles when smiling with your eyes versus when your smile is strained.
Say “Cheese!”…Or Not
• Saying a word that ends with an “uh” sound causes the lips to form a more natural smile than saying a word with a drawn‐out “ee” sound.  Saying “cheese” for a photo stretches the mouth into a strained, fake‐looking grin. Instead, try saying “banana” for a more easy‐going smile.
• Blink for a full second before the photo is taken ‐ your eyes will look alert and bright.
Think Happy Thoughts
• Pretend you’re smiling at someone you love ‐ this will help you naturally smile with your eyes.
• Let loose and giggle a little for a naturally joyful smile. A photo won’t capture your true smile if you’re stiff and formal.
• Relax ‐ your smile will look most beautiful if you think happy thoughts!
• Think of something funny that makes you laugh.
Yellow is NOT the New White
• Maintain healthy, bright teeth! Your best smile will stem from feeling confident in your appearance.
• Keep your breath fresh with regular brushing and flossing so you aren’t afraid to smilewide.
• If your teeth aren’t the brightest shade of white, consider professional whitening to boost your smile’s power.  Dr. Curalli can talk with you about whitening options.

    Skype has established its online-structured customer beta to the entire world,
    right after introducing it broadly within the Usa and
    You.K. previous this 30 days. Skype for Online also now works with Linux and Chromebook for immediate messaging conversation (no
    voice and video however, those require a connect-in installing).

    The expansion from the beta contributes assistance for an extended
    selection of dialects to help reinforce that overseas user
