3. Smile Confidently
Sometimes, the very actions you use to cover up your buck teeth might be simply drawing more attention to them. If you're constantly covering your mouth with your hand or avoiding smiling altogether, it might be sending a signal to look at the very area that makes you uncomfortable. One of the best solutions isn't to hide your smile, but to embrace your unique look. When you show that your teeth alignment doesn't bother you, you're sending a message of confidence to others. It's likely that they'll stop noticing your teeth and focus on your smile instead.
If your teeth bother you, make sure that you talk to your doctor or visit an orthodontist for a consultation. Even if you've been told that braces aren't a good fit (personally or financially), there are other options available to those seeking more confidence in their smile. The U.S. National Library of Medicine suggests fixes such as orthodontic appliances, tooth removal and surgery may help you achieve the straight smile you seek.
Whether you feel like your buck teeth are an asset or something that makes you uncomfortable, remember that confidence is key. By highlighting some of your best assets and keeping your teeth clean and bright, all people will remember is your great smile.
