When we talk about a smile on our blog, we are most often focusing on teeth, but in truth your smile is about much more than your teeth, and if you want to get a great-looking smile, it’s important to consider these, too. We’ve talked a little bit before about some of the factors around your teeth that help make for an attractive smile, but we haven’t yet talked too much about the lips.
There are a lot of tricks you can do with your lips to make your teeth look whiter. They won’t replace teeth whitening, but for many people it will do, and they can even enhance the effects of teeth whitening. Lipstick is one of the best ways to do this. There are several good tips for choosing a lipstick shade that makes your teeth look whiter:
Beyond your lips, you can also try experimenting with bronzers, blush, and other makeup techniques to try to make a better contrast with your teeth.
In addition to framing your smile, your lips give important signals about your age and health. Youthful lips tend to have a higher fat content. They are fuller and more voluptuous.
If you are unhappy with thin lips and want a more youthful, attractive frame for your smile, Juvéderm is an ideal treatment. It can be used to subtly enhance the fullness of your lips, giving them a natural look that is at once younger, healthier, and more feminine in appearance.
