Post a video or a photo of yourself and the person you are making smile today, using the online poster tool or Instagram and Facebook filters. Describe what you are doing such as demonstrating a good dental hygiene practice, relieving toothache and pain fast, or just flashing a natural smile to cheer someone u

If you don’t have an updated version of the app on your phone, you`ll end up with redirects to your browser or app store. Then, rather use the other two alternatives:

  • Alternative 1: click on the global EMS Dental page and find the effect link there under the three sparkles symbol
  • Alternative 2: If you follow the EMS Dental FB or Instagram you will find it in your camera:
    - On your Facebook, create a new story
    - Scroll across the effects by swiping the “click” button to the right
    - There`s also a search function, where you can find “GBT Smile Frame”
