As you digest your Thanksgiving turkey dinner and strategize your holiday shopping, it’s likely that you’ll take stock of all that you’ve achieved in 2015.

If your list of annual accomplishments includes looking after your teeth and gums with regular visits to Phoenix-area dentist Dr. Donald Wilcox at Desert Smiles in Glendale, or undergoing a cosmetic dentistry procedure such as dental implant placement in order to upgrade your smile, what better way to acknowledge your improved health and wellness than to show off an ear-to-ear grin in holiday photos and “selfies.”

Here are three tips for smiling bright in your holiday pictures:

  • No. 1 ─ Stay calm. Act naturally and avoid the urge to stiffen up the minute someone asks you to “Say cheese!”
  • No. 2 ─ Watch your posture. A tall back along with a straight neck and head will help set off your gorgeous smile.
  • No. 3 ─ Turn slightly. Gently move your shoulders in one direction and your chin in the opposite direction, and then smile for the camera. This will help waylay such photo mishaps as double-chins or slouching.

If, however, a cracked or missing tooth, or another dental health issue, means that you simply don’t want to smile for pictures, know that you can improve your smile and outlook on life all at once by visiting with Phoenix-area cosmetic dentist Dr. Wilcox at Desert Smiles in Glendale for a dental implant or smile makeover consultation, or to discuss the array of cosmetic dentistry solutions available to you. Simply give call Desert Smiles today at 602-978-1790.
