As Valentine’s Day draws near, it’s also time to draw closer to the special one in your life! While this day of love can be filled with roses, special dinners, and love notes, affection is often the ultimate show of appreciation and adoration. So, as you snuggle and kiss your loved one, you want to be sure your smile is in its best condition. Here are five ways to prepare your smile to be as kissable as possible for February 14…and every day after that!
#1. Keep Your Breath Fresh
Unfortunately, most people have suffered the embarrassment of having bad breath. And when it comes to getting close to someone, that is the last thing you want to be self-conscious of. One of the best ways to keep your breath smelling fresh is by consistently brushing and flossing your teeth. This will remove the bad bacteria that cause an unpleasant odor in your mouth. Lastly, you can chew on sugar-free gum for an immediate refresh!
#2. Practice Good Oral Hygiene
Remember the cavity-causing bacteria mentioned above? Not only does it affect your breath, it can spread from one person to another. And it doesn’t have to be just kissing…it can even transfer through something simple like sharing a fork over dessert! As mentioned above, cleaning your teeth twice a day for at least minutes each time and flossing daily to get rid of trapped food debris are essential to a healthy smile. Additionally, rinsing with antiseptic mouthwash is another excellent at-home practice. Not only will these practices keep your pearly whites beautiful, but you’ll have cleaner kisses!
#3. Keep Your Teeth Beautiful
A study conducted by Match.com discovered that most people interviewed thought straight, white teeth were the most important physical characteristic of a potential partner. Fortunately, there are cosmetic dental treatments that can transform your smile. Professional teeth whitening can brighten your teeth in one dental visit or within a few weeks for at-home treatments. Or you can consider veneers, which can instantly give you the smile you’ve always wanted. Your dentist can recommend the best procedures for your personal dental goals and needs.
#4. Cut Out Tobacco Use
Smoking and using tobacco products not only negatively impact your overall health – they can contribute to foul breath and stain your teeth. In fact, partaking in these bad habits increases your chances of getting gum disease, which can ultimately lead to tooth loss if left untreated.
#5. Visit Your Dentist Regularly
While maintaining a good oral health routine is essential to a kissable smile, visiting your dentist regularly for checkups and cleanings is just as important! It allows them to prevent, detect, and treat oral health issues before they turn into more serious issues. They can also keep your mouth free from the buildup of plaque and tartar. A clean mouth means a confident kisser!
