How to Enhance Your Smile

How to Enhance Your Smile
Posted on March 17, 2023

Having a great smile can make you look and feel more confident. It can help you feel more comfortable in business and social situations - and help you ace that job interview or get that date! Many of us, however, are not completely happy (no pun intended) with our smiles. The good news is that we can do many things to enhance our smile – both on our own and with the help of our dentist.

Here are a few ideas to consider if you would like to enhance your smile.

Teeth Whitening

Teeth whitening is one of the simplest ways to improve your smile and get noticeable results. For more subtle whitening, you can get a take-home whitening kit from your dentist.

If your teeth are more stained, a customized professional whitening kit can be an option from your dentist. Having brighter, whiter teeth doesn’t just improve your smile; it can make you look years younger.

Dental Crowns 

Crowns are typically thought of as a way to protect badly damaged teeth, but they can also be a way to disguise teeth that are too small or teeth that are misshapen. They can help to give your smile a more uniform appearance.

Dental Veneers

Veneers are very thin layers of porcelain that can be affixed to the outward-facing side of your teeth. They resist staining, so they can make your smile appear brighter. They can also be used to hide small imperfections in your teeth.


If your teeth are overly crooked, consider getting orthodontic work done to straighten them out. Both traditional and  clear aligner therapy can dramatically improve both the appearance and the health of your smile. Although straightening your teeth can be a lengthy process, it can be well worth it in the long run.

Tooth Implants

If there is one thing that can really cause a person to want to hide their smile, it is missing teeth. While there are a variety of possible solutions to this – including temporary dentures and bridges – implants offer the solution closest to having your natural teeth back.

While implants are more expensive than alternate options, they are also permanent and look and function like natural teeth.

Brushing and flossing

While this one may seem obvious, good dental hygiene that includes regular brushing and flossing, can help keep your smile looking its best while helping you maintain good oral health.

Regular dental visits

Keeping your regular dental appointments will help ensure your teeth stay healthy and you maintain a great smile. Regular dental visits allow your dentist to catch minor problems and correct them before they become major issues. These visits are also a great time to discuss any concerns you may have with your dentist and hygienist.
