One of the most important characteristics of a good school picture is a beautiful smile. You will most likely feel comfortable giving the photographer a big grin if you know your teeth look the best they can be. So, to help you have a top-notch smile for picture day, our dentist, Dr. Nils Sandstrom, has some tips for you.

First, make sure to brush and floss at home. These things can help you have a beautiful smile because (1) you won’t have food stuck in your teeth, (2) you will most likely have white and stunning chompers, and (3) you won’t have any dental issues taking the beauty away from your smile, like tooth decay. Clean, strong, and healthy teeth can make for a good school picture.

Second, attend your six-month checkup. This appointment can help you in a variety of ways. It not only deeply cleans your smile, but it can also strengthen and nourish your teeth with fluoride to help you also avoid the dental issues that can take the attractiveness away from your smile. In addition, a tooth polishing treatment is involved. This treatment polishes your teeth, removes surface stains, and makes your teeth look shiny and new. A dental cleaning can also make for a good school picture.
