How to be Confident in Your Smile

For some individuals, a smile is the first thing they look at when meeting a new person. Everyone wants to make a good impression, and a bright, pearly smile can do just that. If you’re currently lacking confidence and are unhappy with your smile, don’t fret. There are both natural and cosmetic ways that one can improve their teeth.

Those who have yellowing or decaying teeth tend to avoid smiling. They may cover their mouth when speaking or look away entirely. These habits can become damaging to a person’s self-esteem. Rather than hiding, individuals can take a few steps to improve it and build their smile confidence.

Maintain Oral Hygiene Routine

To stay or become confident in your smile, a morning and night routine of brushing and flossing is ideal. Keeping teeth in the best possible shape is the greatest way to boost confidence. When an individual’s smile is bright, they are more apt to be more confident and smile even more.

Avoid Certain Food and Drinks

If a lack of confidence comes from stained or yellowing teeth, it may be due to certain foods like coffee, wine, and sugar. Almost everyone enjoys foods that can change our teeth’ appearance, but avoiding teeth-staining foods can help keep our teeth pearly white. For example, acidic fruits and drinks like coffee can cause the tooth’s enamel to break down and create yellow teeth. Keep your smiles confident and white by avoiding the following foods:

  • Tobacco
  • Coffee
  • Tea
  • Wine
  • Blueberries
  • Blackberries
  • Cranberries
  • Candy
  • High-sugar snacks
