A beautiful smile is a powerful thing. It can make you look more friendly, confident, capable, and approachable. It can also help you succeed in your career and can be beneficial in building positive connections with others and having a successful dating life. If you’re looking to improve your smile, continue reading to learn about five traits that you should strive for.

Trait #1: Bright, White Teeth

Bright, white teeth are a desirable feature for many people. Unfortunately, certain foods and drinks, smoking, and certain medicines can stain teeth, making them appear yellow and less appealing. You can avoid yellow teeth by brushing your pearly whites twice daily, flossing every night, and seeing your dentist regularly for checkups and cleanings.

You can also brighten your smile by undergoing professional at-home and in-office whitening. Direct bonding and porcelain veneers are also good options for those for which teeth whitening doesn’t achieve the desired results.

Trait #2: No Chips or Cracks

Chipped and cracked teeth can give your beam an unhealthy look. Dental bonding can help by covering up cracks and chips as well as restoring the shape and color of your teeth. Veneers are thin, porcelain shells that can also cover chips and cracks. Additionally, dental crowns may be necessary for more severe damage.

Trait #3: An Even Smile Arc

A smile arc refers to the way that the upper teeth curve as they meet the lower lip. An ideal smile arc will be slightly upward and narrow at the ends. A misaligned smile arc may be corrected with orthodontics, so talk to your orthodontist to learn more about your options.

Trait #4: A Healthy Gum Color

Healthy gums are pink and firm. They should not bleed when you brush or floss your teeth. If your gums are red, swollen, or bleed easily, you may have gum disease. Gum disease is a serious infection that can damage your teeth and gums. If you have any of these symptoms, it is important to see a dentist right away to receive periodontal treatment before things worsen.

Trait #5: Evenly Spaced Teeth

Gapped teeth can make your smile look less attractive and can also make it harder to keep your teeth clean, which will make you more likely to develop cavities. Invisalign and traditional braces can close the gaps between your teeth and make them easier to clean. Direct bonding and porcelain veneers can also fill in small gaps to improve the appearance of your smile.
