An important characteristic of a great school picture is a stunning grin. You are more likely to give the photographer a big smile when you know your teeth are looking great. To help you have a top-notch smile for picture day, Dr. Eliot Tokowitz and our dental professionals have some tips for you.

First, make sure to floss and brush every day at home. These daily habits will help you have a beautiful smile, because (1) you will most likely have white, dazzling chompers, (2) food won’t be stuck in your teeth, and (3) there won’t be any dental issues taking the beauty away from your smile, like cavities, yellow teeth, or tooth decay. Clean, strong, and healthy teeth can make for a great school picture!

Second, attending your six-month checkup is vital. This appointment can not only deeply cleans your smile, but it can also strengthen and nourish your teeth with fluoride. This will help you also avoid dental issues that have the ability to take away from your smile. A tooth polishing treatment is also involved, polishing your teeth, removing surface stains, and making your smile look shiny and new. A dental cleaning can also make for a good school picture.

Teeth whitening is another option to brighten your smile, as well as Invisalign to straighten your smile. We also provide athletic mouth guards to protect your smile while participating in sports, especially when you come into contact with other athletes.
