Improve Your Smile for Senior Pictures

Senior pictures are a time to celebrate your accomplishments and memories. Your smile is one of the first things people notice about you. Having a bright, beautiful smile can help boost your confidence. It can help you feel better and appear more attractive to others. 

Prepare Your Teeth 

You only get one chance to make a first impression, and you want your smile to look great in the yearbook and in their senior photos. Paying a visit to your dental office to discuss procedures that can improve the way they look and feel when you pose for your pictures. 

Some treatments to be considered include teeth whitening to remove stains from coffee or soda; bonding to fill in gaps between the teeth and improve the appearance of chips or cracks; veneers for a more even-looking smile; or orthodontic treatments to straighten the teeth and improve the alignment of the bite. It may also be a good idea to add tooth contouring, which involves removing small amounts of enamel from the teeth to improve their shape. 

Whiten Your Teeth 

High school is an exciting time in your life! It’s full of new experiences, friends, and adventures. One of the best parts of this time in a young person’s life is developing their personality and their social circles. This includes dating and having pictures taken of yourself. But, when you smile, you may not like what you see in the mirror. Years of coffee drinking, soda drinking, and even smoking can leave you with stained teeth. This can make you feel self-conscious. If your teeth are discolored, you can whiten them to make them pearly white again. 

Some teenagers turn to over-the-counter whitening strips. While these can work for some, they may not help you achieve the results you are looking for. At-home treatments use a lower concentration of peroxide than professional-supervised treatments. This means that it will take longer to whiten your teeth. And, because the treatment is weaker, it can irritate your gums and cause tooth sensitivity. This is why professional whitening treatments are always recommended. By visiting your dentist’s office for a teeth whitening treatment, you can achieve whiter teeth in less time with fewer side effects. 

Apply Veneers 

Veneers can improve the appearance of your smile in just two appointments. During your first appointment, your dentist prepares your teeth for the veneers by shaping them and smoothing the surface. Your dentist then takes an impression of your teeth and sends it to the lab where your veneers are made. At your second appointment, your dentist removes your temporary veneers and bonds the permanent ones in place. 

Veneers are a great option for anyone with teeth that are discolored or misaligned. The porcelain material reflects light in the same way as natural teeth, so they’re very natural-looking. They are stain-resistant and durable, as well. They’re also reversible and can be removed if your dentist determines they are not the best option for you or if your needs change at any time in the future.
