Many people are unhappy with their smile and the impact it has on the image they want to project. Here's some simple questions to help you focus on the areas which may be at fault.
Face directly into the mirror and smile normally:
- Do you have crooked teeth?
- Do you have any noticeable spaces between your teeth?
- Are you missing any of your teeth?
- Are your teeth discolored?
- Do your front teeth have plastic fillings that have discolored?
- Does your smile seem narrow or stop at just the front six teeth?
- Do the teeth look short or worn flat?
- Do your back teeth that show look gray or black because of silver-mercury fillings? Do you feel like you show too much gum when you smile?
- Are your gums a healthy pink, or are they red and puffy?
And notice this:
- Does your smile match the rest of your image?
- Are you self-conscious about your smile?
- What do other people notice about your smile?
- After going through the checkpoints above, what would you change about your smile if you could?
- Do you find yourself not smiling in photos or covering your teeth with your hand or lip?
