Is Your Smile Social Media Friendly?

Taking a trip down memory lane can be fun, and there’s no better way to do than to look at some old photos.

Look at your smile. You were so happy, so alive, so full of energy on your wedding day.

Even in those pictures of you playing with the kids, your smile was as bright as ever.

Then you look in the mirror and smile. Something looks different. You know you are older, but your teeth have lost some of their shine. You’d love to have that whiter smile again.

Guess what? You can.

If you live in or near Billings, MT, you should contact the dentist at Legacy Smiles. Their office has two types of cosmetic dentistry — teeth whitening and veneers — that can give you that bright, wedding day smile once again

Red Carpet Ready

You don’t know why you do it, but you pick up a copy of US Weekly or People every now and then. There’s just something about reading about the actors you see on television and in the movies that’s interesting.

Of course, seeing their outfits at those red carpet events is always interesting. You don’t expect you’ll ever be invited to something like that, much less have a bunch of photographers fighting to take your picture.

If you did, you’d like your smile to look like that — a big, confident, bright, white smile.

Even so, you know that those celebrities weren’t born with those perfect smiles. They have had work done to keep those smiles looking so good.

You’ve even read interviews with some of them where they talked about teeth whitening and veneers. Some of them even had pictures, and you could definitely see how much whiter their smiles were in the “after” photos.

Social Media Friendly

Now that you think about it, you may not be invited to any award shows, but you still have your picture taken a lot.

When you were growing up, most people didn’t have cameras. Today almost everyone you know carries a smartphone, and all of them have cameras built into them.

It seems like people are taking pictures constantly. You know this because they are posting them on Facebook, Instagram, and who knows where else all the time, too.

How many pictures of you are on Facebook? You hadn’t really thought much about it until now. Think about the last family get together, the Christmas party at work, even that last vacation you took with your spouse. There’s probably hundreds of pictures of you online just from this past year.

How many more pictures will be taken this year and posted to Facebook by you or someone you know? Wouldn’t it be great if you had a big white smile to show?

Maybe you will call Legacy Smiles to learn more about teeth whitening and veneers.

Two Ways To A Whiter Smile

You may have seen the countless whitening products at the store. They have toothpastes, mouthrinses, strips, and gels with trays. All of them promise to make your teeth whiter, but unfortunately, they aren’t as effective as we’d like them to be.

Whitening toothpastes can improve the color of your teeth by a shade or two. The gel-and-tray systems are a little more effective, and you may not notice any change with some of those mouthrinses.

If you really want a whiter smile, you should seek professional help, which you can get at Legacy Smiles.

Your first option is professional teeth whitening with Opalescence Boost. For the fastest possible results, you can do a treatment in our office. In just one hour, your teeth could be visibly whiter.

If you prefer a do-it-yourself approach, we also have a take-home whitening product. This works more gradually, but you will see a bigger difference than you would with commercial teeth whitening products.

Veneers work differently than whitening. Rather than removing stains, veneers cover them up, sort of like false fingernails cover your natural ones.

The difference is that veneers last a lot longer (years, even a decade or more) than fake fingernails ever could.

And because veneers are made of porcelain, they are made to look and feel like your natural teeth — only brighter!

Looking Good, Feeling Better

You don’t have to attend premiere events to want a beautiful smile. A whiter smile looks great. It could even help you look a little younger, and you just might feel like you have more energy, too.

See the smile you want to see in the mirror. Try teeth whitening or veneers by visiting the Legacy Smiles dentist office in Billings, MT. You can make an appointment by calling (406) 794-3114 or by filling out our online form.
