How to Achieve a Beautiful Smile Past Forty


A beautiful smile is a feature that everybody loves. It makes a person look attractive, happy, and healthy. Unfortunately, it becomes harder to achieve a good smile as you get older, as teeth naturally deteriorate with age. Plus, aging also makes your lips grow thinner. 

Read on to achieve a smile that looks just as beautiful past 40 as it did at 20. 

Get Invisalign 

Straight teeth always look great, but if you weren’t blessed with naturally straight teeth or a good orthodontist when you were young, you might not have it. Don’t worry – there are options for adults looking to get that perfect straight set. Dental practices like offer Invisalign, which straightens your teeth over time. The biggest benefit is that the braces are almost invisible, so you can avoid wearing noticeable braces in your mouth when you’re past 40. 

Get Your Teeth Whitened 

Teeth aren’t naturally white, unfortunately. If you brush your teeth three times a day, floss regularly, and use mouthwash, you might still find your teeth have stains. This is especially true of those that drink lots of coffee and tea or eat teeth-staining foods like curry. The best way to achieve a white smile is to get your teeth whitened. Go to a professional dentist once a year for perfectly white teeth, and then use recommended at-home treatments to keep it topped up throughout the year. 

Find Your Perfect Lip Color 

A smile is perfectly complemented by a pretty lipstick. Search for a color that compliments your skin tone perfectly, and you will always feel more confident when smiling for a picture. If you have trouble finding a good lipstick, you can always talk to a makeup professional in a department store for some advice. Sometimes, other people have a better eye when it comes to choosing the best colors for your face. 

Nourish Your Lips 

It is no good wearing lipstick if you don’t care for your lips. After all, the lipstick glides on much smoother when your lips are well-hydrated. To keep your lips healthy and pretty, use an exfoliant when necessary and protect them with lip balm throughout the day. Keeping a pot of Vaseline at your side is a healthy habit to get into.

Good Dental Hygiene 

Teeth whitening is a great option, but only when it’s done on top of good dental hygiene. Brush, floss, and mouthwash are all important, as is avoiding too many salty or sugary foods. It’s OK to treat yourself to a cake or cookie from time to time, but avoid drinking sugary drinks throughout the day or munching on multiple chocolate bars. Instead, get used to eating fresh food like celery, carrots, non-salted nuts, and apples. Your teeth, and health, will thank you.


No matter what your smile looks like, you should never avoid showing your teeth because of insecurities. A smile is always better than no smile, so get into the habit of smiling at anyone and everyone, and you will become a ball of positivity.
