Do you love your smile? You should! We think your smile is pretty amazing. Feeling good about your smile is important because your smile is a big part of who you are! Let’s talk about 5 ways to love your smile.

1. Smile More!

One of the first ways to love your smile more is to practice smiling! The more you smile, the more comfortable and confident you’ll feel when you smile!

Some easy tips to remember to smile more might include writing down positive affirmations or encouraging messages for yourself and posting them in various places such as where you get ready in the morning, in your car, around your desk at work or school, or simply adding some reminders as timers on your phone for times when you might feel stressed or discouraged.

2. Practice Gratitude

Practicing gratitude is another one of our favorite ways to love your smile. Studies show that thinking of just 3 things you’re grateful for each day can boost your mood and help to relieve depression and anxiety. Who doesn’t love to smile when they feel happy and calm?

3. Take Pride in Caring for Your Smile

Taking pride in your smile starts with taking pride in caring for your smile. Dentists recommend brushing and flossing regularly because it helps to keep your smile healthy and strong. Spending just a handful of minutes a day caring for your teeth can really pay off.

4. Get a Professional Cleaning

Dental care at home is important, but that’s not all there is to loving your smile. It’s also important to visit a dentist regularly for an exam and dental cleaning to help keep your teeth in top shape.

5. Make a Plan to Reach Your Smile Goals

If you want to love your smile more, make a plan! Whether it’s practicing more consistent dental care habits, smiling more throughout the day, or talking to your dentist about goals like whitening, it helps to have a plan so that you know exactly what to do next to reach your goals. If you need help with making a plan, don’t hesitate to ask! We’re here to help! Our greatest joy comes from seeing people fall in love with their smiles.
