Are you hoping to make your smile look more photogenic in pictures? A lot of people are unhappy with the way that they look in photos, but fortunately, there are things that you can do about it. In some cases, some simple fixes can make all the difference in the way you look in a picture, and in other situations, a trip to your dentist might be in order. Follow these tips to get the photogenic smile that you’ve always wanted so that you can shine in your next picture.
Pay Attention to Your Posture
Standing up straight without slouching at the neck can help to prevent a double chin in photos. Drop your chin slightly and turn your head so that your face isn’t square to the camera.
Check Out Your Teeth Before Picture Time
If you know that a photo opportunity is coming up, take some time to do a little prep work. You can whiten your teeth with over the counter products or by visiting your dentist, and you can also take some time to get your broken or cracked teeth professional repaired. Whether you have a school photo or family portrait session coming up, you’ll be much happier with the end result if you take the opportunity to fix up your smile first.
When posing for a picture, don’t force a big, fake smile. For a more relaxed look, smile gently so that your mouth opens up slightly and the lower lip matches the curve if the upper teeth. This will also prevent you from tensing your neck muscles and squinting your eyes.
Remembering that when it comes to getting a smile that you are happy with, you might have to practice at it. Spend some time in front of the mirror or taking practice pictures on the phone until you find a smile that you are happy with.
