The right lipstick can put the final touch on any outfit; however, the wrong one can cause your smile to lose its luster. Certain colors can make your teeth look stained or discolored. Don’t let a simple mistake cause your teeth to look dirty, aged, or unhealthy. Here’s how to choose the best lipstick to enhance your pearly whites and what you can do to ensure your teeth are their whitest.
1. Blue-Based Red
Red lips are always in season, but there are many shades. A blue-based red will flatter your white teeth. It’s best to skip orange-based products because they can make your teeth appear discolored.
2. Fruit Punch
Fruit punch lipstick can range from cool-toned red to a deep pinkish hue. It matches well with natural skin tones to ensure your pearly whites shine their brightest.
3. Cool-Toned Pink
If you like your lipstick to be subtle, choose a cool-toned pink. Avoid any warm tones because they can bring out the yellow in your teeth.
Nude lipsticks are great for any occasion, whether taking a hike or enjoying a night out on the town. Unfortunately, they can make your teeth look yellow. If you can’t resist nude lipstick, choose one with a pinkish or pale hue.
If you want to make a bold statement, blue is the way to go. It will make your teeth look white and bright. Any shade of blue will do, whether bright or deep.
Reveal a Whiter Smile at Home
If you’re not happy with the color of your teeth, you can achieve a picture-perfect smile with teeth whitening. You can enjoy the convenience of an OTC product and reach in-office results with a take-home kit.
Your cosmetic dentist will examine your mouth to ensure your teeth and gums are healthy. They’ll also determine the source of your stains to ensure teeth whitening can provide the improvement you desire.
Your dentist will give you everything you need to treat stains at home. You’ll use the customized trays and professional-strength whitening agent daily to get your teeth up to 8 shade whiter. As each day passes, you’ll notice your smile getting brighter.
Teeth whitening can last for many months or years with the correct care, like brushing and flossing. Avoid any stain-causing foods and drinks, like coffee or dark berries. Don’t forget to visit your dentist every 6 months for a cleaning and checkup. They can also provide you with a touchup kit to ensure your dazzling smile lasts.
