What Exercises Can You Do To Improve Your Smile?

Did you know that you can improve your smile with mouth workouts? Your muscles will change and your smile will appear different than it did before. Everyone talks about going to the gym to work on your body, but we forgot about our faces! Our dentists at Smiles Dental group have put together the best 3 exercises for your face. No, you don’t need a “mouth day” just do these exercises frequently and have fun!

The Smile Exercise

This one is pretty straightforward, this exercise will not only improve your smile, but it will put you in greater control of your smile as well! Began by sitting or standing; whichever is more comfortable, in front of a mirror with a relaxed facial expression.

Hold each one of these steps for 10 seconds, (if you feel any pain or increased discomfort, relax your muscles and try to build up to it more slowly).

  1. Stretch the corners of your mouth to the sides while keeping your lips together. 
  2. Expand the stretch and part your lips slightly to so you can see your teeth. 
  3. Try to stretch even further and as hard as you can, as long as you don’t feel pain, with your teeth showing. 
  4. Smile as wide as you can with all your teeth showing. 
  5. Repeat steps 3, 2, and 1.
Tips: If these steps are difficult for you to achieve you can use your index fingers to assist in making the different expressions.

Smile Line Eraser

Smile lines can be decreased so they are not as apparent over time. This can give you the appearance of looking younger, and will give you an even more appealing smile!
  1. Push your lips together by sucking in your cheeks and rolling your lips out.
  2. Attempt to smile while you’re puckering.
  3. Hold this pose until there’s a mild aching sensation in the muscles around your mouth, then release.

The Silly Rabbit

Tone your cheek muscles while improving your flexibility and your smile. Looking in a mirror may be beneficial while learning the exercise, but it is not needed.
  1. Smile wide – Make that smile as wide as you can with out opening your lips; think ear-to-ear.
  2. Wiggle your nose like a rabbit until your cheek muscles engage.
  3. Hold that expression for 5 seconds.
  4. Repeat this exercise up to 10 times in a session.

The Facelift Exercise

  1. Open your mouth slightly and relax your upper lip, flare your nostrils and wrinkle your nose.
  2. Pull up the upper lip for a duration of 10 seconds.
  3. Repeat this exercise up to 10 times in a session.

Smile Wide

This one is similar to the first technique, but it is slightly different:
  1. Keep your mouth closed.
  2. Smile as wide as possible for 10 seconds.
  3. Repeat this exercise up to 10 times in a session.

Doing these exercises 2-3 times a week will improve your smile by making it look more youthful, and will give you more control over expressions! It’s a great way to get comfortable with your smile so you feel more confident when you do smile!

Happy smiling!
