A Winning Smile: Short And Long-Term Solutions


Laughter is the best medicine. You’ll be pleased to know that breaking a winning smile is an integral part of your well-being as it benefits your love life, your career and, first of all, your health. However, if you want to enjoy the buzz of a smile, you need to give yourself the best chances to make it work. Smiling can dramatically reduce your stress levels. However, when you’re struggling with a toothache or chapped lips, it’s easy to see how smiling could have the opposite effect. In other words, your winning smile depends entirely on your ability to address health issues and find short and long-term solutions to control your problem areas.

Prepare your winning smile

Your eye-catching smile in a second

If you’ve experienced issues with your teeth in the past, you probably know that there is no immediate remedy to transform bad teeth in a healthy smile. However, you can regain your confidence with a veneer solution such as INSTAsmile, which lets you hide localised problem areas. You can show off your pearly whites and feel good about it, which, ultimately boosts your mood and your immune system. You can also use a veneer add-on if you’re in the process of whitening your teeth, for instance, or undergoing extensive repairs. Indeed, it could provide temporary relief until you are ready.  

But you need dedicated tooth care underneath

However, it’s crucial to understand that while you can effectively hide spots in your mouth that you’re not comfortable showing, you can’t afford to stop looking about your dental hygiene. Ultimately, bad teeth won’t get better on their own. More importantly, failure to maintain your teeth and gums can lead to dramatic consequences such as tooth loss. In other words, you have to put the work in to ensure that your teeth are never a source of health concern. Brushing and flossing every day is the minimum you can do. Reducing unhealthy dieting choices can also make a long-term difference.

The WOW effect on lips

Your teeth are only one of the elements of a winning smile. Your lips give life to your smile. It’s fair to say that fuller lips can completely transform your smile, which is precisely why lipstick is so popular. It can, in an instant, make your lips appear hydrated, healthy and ultimately appealing. If you have thin lips, your smile may not stand out as your mouth doesn’t attract the eye. However, you can change their appearance with the right lipstick. The L'Oreal Colour Riche Shine range is super hydrating and, more importantly, it has fantastic nude shades which keeps your fuller smile looking natural.

Long-term care routine keeps your lips feeling fresh

There’s only so much lipstick you can apply. If your lips are chapped from lack of moisture or cold, there’s no way a lipstick would give you the winning smile you want. You need to make lip care an everyday routine, by keeping a lip balm in your handbag at all times. You need to nourish the thin skin on the lips as it is very fragile.

Are you ready to smile your way to success? From long-term routines to quick and effective WOW solutions, your smile deserves only the best to shine. And that’s precisely what you need to give!
