Trends and styles may come and go, but there is one accessory that never goes out of fashion: a bright smile. As your dental office, Toothology has a vested interest in helping you achieve beautiful teeth you want to show off.

In our social-media-crazed world, pictures have never meant more. You can wear the trendiest clothes and have the most eye-catching jewelry, but nothing compares to a wearing a beaming smile. Of course, we want your smile to be healthy, but we bet that YOU also want your teeth to be a beautiful shade of white. Here are some ways to help your teeth look whiter in photos!

  1. Professional Teeth Whitening
  2. Though over-the-counter teeth whitening options abound, the safest and most effective way to whiten your teeth is with professional teeth whitening. Toothology offers two different whitening options:

    Custom Take-Home Trays

    While seemingly like store-bought whitening solutions, custom tray teeth whitening has its advantages. At Toothology, we create molds of your teeth in advance to make trays that will fit better, feel more comfortable, and produce a much more uniform result.

    One-Visit Teeth Whitening

    This whitening option allows you to walk out of our office with a noticeably whiter smile in just one visit. Our team will be on hand to monitor the entire process and customize it to your needs.

  3. Try a Different Shade of Lipstick
  4. If you wear lipstick, know that the shade you choose can affect how white your teeth look since its color contrasts with your teeth.

    Red & Pink Lipstick + Blue Base

    If you want to have a bold red lip, look for a lipstick with a blue base rather than orange, as orange can reflect on your teeth and make them look yellow. The blue undertones are also going to be your best bet with pink lipsticks too to make your smile look whiter.

    Neutral Lipstick + Pink Base

    When considering a more neutral, nude shade, opt for a lipstick with pink undertones. Peach or brown-based neutral colors make your teeth look yellow.

  5. Consider the Color of Your Clothes
  6. The color of your outfit is also going to impact the brightness of your smile. Follow the same rules for your clothing as you do for your lipstick; blue will help make your teeth look whiter!

  7. Come Visit Us!
  8. The best way to make sure that your smile looks its best is to visit our team at Toothology every six months for checkups and cleanings. Not only can we make your teeth look great, we can also make sure they work well, feel good, and stay their healthiest.
