How to take your pictures
Watch the video below to learn how to take clear photos of your teeth from the angles that help us to best assess your smile.
Video Transcript: Quality photos are really important for an accurate diagnosis, here are four quick tips for great pics: Using a smartphone works best. Having a friend take your photo is better, but selfies will also do the trick. Use a flash or make sure you have good lighting and get really close to capture only your mouth, not your entire face. The first photo is of the front of your teeth. Bite down on your back teeth, relax your lips and use two fingers to pull the sides of your mouth to expose your teeth. If you’re taking a selfie and can’t use both hands, bite and smile big to show as many teeth as you can. Your final photo should look like this. The second photo is of the left side of your mouth. Bite down on your back teeth, look to the right, relax your lips, and pull your left cheek with one finger. Your final photo should look like this. The third photo is of the right side of your mouth. Bite down on your back teeth, look to the left, relax your lips, and pull your right cheek with one finger. Your final photo should look like this. The forth photo is of your top teeth. Open your mouth really wide, and tilt back your head. Your final photo should look like this. The fifth photo is of your bottom teeth. Open your mouth really wide, and tilt back your chin down. Your final photo should look like this.
