Valentine’s Day is approaching. Want the dating Gods to smile on you? A healthy mouth will definitely help you in the romance stakes. Here are our 5 top tips for a kissable smile.
- Banish Bad Breath
Bad breath is caused by a build-up of bacteria in your mouth. To stop this happening, you need a good oral health routine in place. That includes brushing twice each day, flossing, and using a mouthwash. Brushing your tongue can also help as it can often harbour bad breath causing bacteria. However, sometimes, an ordinary toothbrush doesn’t do the job. To banish bad breath and have a kissable smile, you need to clean in between your teeth. A good tooth cleaner can help get rid of bacteria and keep your mouth healthy in between dentist visits.
- Chew Sugar-Free Gum
Saliva in your mouth helps wash away bacteria and stops your mouth from drying out. A dry mouth is a common cause of bad breath. Chewing sugar-free gum between meals helps your mouth produce saliva. Hello, winning smile.
- Make Fluoride Your Friend
Using products that contain fluoride is one of our top tips for a kissable smile. Mouthwashes and toothpastes that contain fluoride help prevent tooth decay and keep your mouth healthy overall.
- Make Your Smile Sparkle
With a study claiming that whiter teeth can increase your attractiveness by 20%, a smile that sparkles is a must. But before you grab any old tooth whitening kit, be careful. Kits you buy online might contain high levels of hydrogen peroxide which can permanently damage your teeth and gums. Persistent sensitivity of the teeth and gums is a common side-effect of home teeth whitening kits. On the other hand, some kits don’t contain enough hydrogen peroxide to have much of an effect at all. If you want safe and effective teeth whitening, use a tried and tested tool like our teeth whitening pen.
- Visit Your Dentist Regularly
One of the most important top tips for a kissable smile is visiting your dentist regularly. They can clean your teeth, prevent gum disease and tooth decay, and spot any more serious problems early on.
So as Valentine’s Day approaches, remember that a healthy smile is the result of a healthy mouth. You can achieve a kissable smile by caring for your teeth and gums, banishing bad breath, and making your smile sparkle.
