Photography Tips & Tricks For Your Wedding Day Smile

Photography Tips & Tricks For Your Wedding Day Smile

At Distinctive Dentistry we know how important wedding photos are.  Wedding photos will capture the memories of your special day that you will cherish forever. Flashing your best smile is a must. So how can your best smile be captured every time? Here are a few tips:

  • Slightly Tilt Your Head
    Celebrities know how to flash their perfect smile for the cameras. They have studied exactly how to pose and angle their heads to get the most attractive smile possible. It is usually recommended to tilt your head slightly to the camera because most people have a-symmetrical faces. This also explains why one side of your face may photograph better than the other.
  • Moisten Your Teeth Just Before the Photo is Snapped
    A quick swipe of your tongue over your teeth just before the photograph is taken can help your teeth twinkle and add brightness to the photo. Celebrities often place Vaseline on their teeth when they are expecting to smile repeatedly to help their teeth shine brightly and to also help prevent their lips from sticking to their teeth.
  • Smile With Your Teeth Slightly Parted
    When your teeth are slightly parted during your smile, a more natural smile is conveyed. A very rigid appearance comes across when your teeth are together.
  • Wear A Creamy Lipstick
    A creamy lipstick can accentuate your lips and make your teeth look brighter.
  • Practice Makes Perfect
    Practice smiling in front of the mirror to ensure that the smile you are about to show off in your wedding day photographs is the smile that you like. Learning how to accentuate your smile is a skill that can be developed. Most importantly, don’t force your smile — relax and have fun.

If there’s something that’ s been bothering you about the way your teeth look, let’s design — and achieve — the smile you’ve always dreamed of. Smile with confidence on your big day!

Teeth Whitening

Many brides select professional in-office whitening as a quick and easy option to whiten their smile. We offer in-office whitening treatments using the most effective solutions available, or we can fabricate customized mouth trays for at-home whitening.

Porcelain Veneers
By covering the existing tooth with a thin porcelain veneer, the tooth can be altered in color and shape that can dramatically improve your smile!

Porcelain Crowns
Permanent porcelain crowns are used to restore the strength and appearance of a tooth after a procedure like a root canal. We offer crowns to perfectly match existing teeth.

Misaligned teeth impact a smile in a highly visible way. We offer newer options that make orthodontic treatment less noticeable and less intrusive than ever — with equally spectacular results!

Cosmetic Bonding
An ideal, custom-made option to conceal severe stains, chips, overlapping and uneven teeth. Our custom-made bonding options are perfectly matched to your natural tooth color!
