How to Get That Perfect Smile

Updated on August 26, 2014

Read any books on how to properly present yourself, on how to make new friends, on how to greet people and I’m sure you will encounter an entry about the importance of smiling. There’s something about a smile that tells people you’re a good guy. That you’re someone they can trust. That you’re happy to meet them.

But the key thing in smiling is it has to be genuine. People has a knack in telling if your smile is fake or not. And if it’s fake, you’ll be sorry. Because others will be doubting you even if what you’re saying is true. So smile that genuine smile and watch the magic unfold!

Here are a few tips on how to have that perfect smile.

1. Brush your teeth at least twice a day.

Now you might say this is quite obvious but the fact of the matter is there are lots of folks out there who are not doing this regularly. There are even some who would only brush their teeth whenever they go out of the house. Imagine that! Now it’s also advisable, and if possible, to brush after every meal. But twice a day will do just fine.

When buying a toothpaste, choose one that has a fluoride in it. It helps keep your teeth strong and it prevents tooth decay.

2. Use a mouthwash

What’s the use of a great smile if your breath smells bad? Because you don’t just smile at people, you also talk to them especially if there’s something you would like to communicate with them. And you’ll never go far if your breath stinks! So add a mouthwash to your oral hygiene. It only takes 30 seconds to gargle.

3. Visit your dentist regularly.

How often should you visit your dentist? Usually twice a year is recommended by most dentists. But for any slight sign of dental or oral problem, I highly suggest that you immediately go have it checked. Of course, you should also be careful when it comes to deciding which dentist you should trust.


4. Use the right shade of lipstick (if you’re a gal).

The way to do it is to experiment. You don’t have to buy every lipstick there is, you can simply try a few at the department store. It’s free. Then purchase the one that perfectly matches your skin tone. Bring a friend a long so you can get a second opinion on what color works great with your smile.


5. Floss at least once a day.

What good is a smile if people can see a bit of your lunch stuck between your teeth. Flossing can get rid of that plus it promotes good oral hygiene. Why? Because it clears away any food that can lead to tooth decay and gum problems.

When using a floss, don’t skimp on it. Use as much as you need to help you thoroughly clean between your pearly whites.

Now bring out that great smile!

The English novelist George Eliot once said: “Wear a smile and have friends; wear a scowl and have wrinkles”. If you want to win friends and if you want to have a great day, sometimes all you have to do is smile. And do it with all your heart.
