Are British Smiles Really That Awful?

After all of our success at the Olympics, the whole world can agree that Britain is the home to some seriously talented athletes. And they’re a pretty good looking bunch too! So why is it that some countries still think that British people don’t have great smiles? Up there on that podium, it was more than obvious that smiling is something we do pretty well.

Smiling is more than just a big toothy grin, though. It’s a sign of a happy mind and well-being. If you’ve got plenty to smile about you’ll naturally have a very beautiful smile. Of course, you may want to refine one or two details. Most of us wear lip gloss. This can accentuate the smile, highlight our gorgeous lips, and give them a healthy glow. And you don’t need to leave these Isles to get some of the best lip care products in the world.

A natural lip balm will help protect your lips from the heat of the British summer, and the harshness of the British winter. And a good lip gloss with added UV protection will make sure our lips are safe from the sun wherever we may be in the world. Sure, we might not go for the most vibrant or punchy colours. We’re not always that bold! But there are plenty of colours to choose whatever your complexion.

Teeth aren’t naturally that brilliant white you see in Hollywood movies. That doesn’t mean we Brits don’t have healthy, white teeth. You don’t have to pay expensive cosmetic dentists to whiten your teeth either. Plenty of Brits are using products for this purpose in the comfort of their own homes, and they’re getting great results. And most of us know how essential it is to visit the dentist every few months.

Veneers are huge in some countries. They are available in the UK from private cosmetic dentists too. But fewer people in Britain tend to invest in them than in countries like the United States. Of course, it could be that we simply don’t need to cover up the teeth we have naturally! Nowadays, it’s rare to see people with awful teeth. Just like everywhere else in the world, we care about our oral health.

If you are feeling a little shy about your smile, there are plenty of things you can do to gain some confidence. Whitening is one of the most common approaches. You can also speak to your hygienist about tackling food and drink stains on your teeth. Avoiding the worst offenders, like coffee and red wine, can help keep pearly whites glowing. Regular brushing, flossing, and rinsing with mouthwash will help prevent any oral health problems from occurring.

There are lots of reasons to smile. But if you’re not feeling confident about your smile, it can prevent you enjoying it. So why not chat with your dentist about what you can do to improve your smile? No smile is ever awful if it’s genuine. And British people certainly have a lot to smile about right now!
