In this era of HD television and lenses, I would like to bring your attention to the notion of a HD Smile. Ever noticed how some people’s smile appear to be more attractive, more vibrant than others? My smile is one of them. Yet according to accepted beauty standards, my smile is far from being perfect. So what is this magic component that has the ability to make a less than perfect smile vibrantly attractive? High Definition! Is it expensive? Not at all!
Take a quick trip to your bathroom mirror right now. Turn the light on and take a real close look at your smile. Turn your head in different directions so that you can see the side teeth too. Tilt your head up and down as well. Does the enamel of every single tooth visible in the mirror sparkle when you move your head around? Now look even closer and zoom in the area where your gums meet your teeth: do you still see a sparkle of light on the enamel closest to the gums? Are your gums pink and lying flat and tight around every single tooth in your mouth? Now, staying this close to the mirror, turn your attention to the spaces between your teeth, bring your tongue against the edge of all your upper teeth: can you pump air between your teeth with your tongue? You need a YES to ALL these questions to have a HD Smile. Brushing after every meal and flossing a minimum of once per day will get you there. Cost? Pennies and a few minutes every day!
