Question ID: 194236
I’ve had my teeth whitened using the special bleach from my dentist,
and I’m looking at getting Invisalign braces to straighten them out.

I want to know what other ways there are of improving your smile.

For example, are there exercises that can be done to improve facial

Are there non-surgical ways of changing the contours of the face?

Is there a method of widening the mouth?

I’m not the type to read beauty magazines, as they’re usually aimed at

In our image-obsessed society, however, there must be some methods out

What are they?

Hello markabe-ga,

  I asked my friend, who is an orthodontist, and
  this is what he said:

    1) The main components of your smile are your
       teeth and gums.  White, straight teeth are
       always in vogue.  Whitening products and
       braces will certainly help that.

    2) The auxillary smile components are your lips 
       and facial muscles.  Lip balms will help you
       keep healthy, unchapped lips.  Also, like any
       muscle on your body, it is possible to exercise
       your facial muscles.

       Two products that he has seen (and will 
       only endorse in general, but not specifically)
  - you place it in the corners of your mouth and flex
  - another facial exercise program. 
  My friend also said happiness always brightens
  anybody's smile!  :-)

  I hope that helps you.


  P.S. Please don't be afraid to tip your researcher.
