If you are concerned that your teeth are not at their best, there are tricks that you can use to make the next family photo look presentable.

  • Strike a pose - Taking a pose that focuses the attention from your mouth you can be able to get that perfect photo. You can tilt your head lower or take an over the shoulder shot thereby making the photo more focused to the eyes.
