It doesn’t matter who you are kissing, if you have dirty or unattractive teeth, you are less likely to find someone who wants to kiss you back. This goes for Valentine’s Day and every day!
So, while Valentine’s Day should also be a day of big, happy smiles, if you have stained or darkened teeth, it might be harder to smile. Which is why at Dr. Sachdeva’s Dental Surgery we are happy to offer you the following strategies for having an attractive, kissable smile.
Home Based Approaches
Here are the top five things you can do to ensure maximum kissability:
- Floss daily – at least!
- Brush 2x per day for at least 2 minutes, with a fluoridated toothpaste
- Visit your dentist at least twice a year.
- Use Mouthwash!
- Don’t be afraid to check your own breath, now and then.
Checking your own breath can be a little bit difficult, but there is a way to do it: Simply lick your hand and the smell the result. You can wait for your saliva to dry, or not. Either way, you will get an idea of if you are suffering from bad breath, and if you are, you can do something about it.
Whitening and Brightening Your Smile
Tooth discoloration can come from drinking coffee, tea, cola, red wine, and of course from smoking. Certain foods can also stain teeth or cause them to stain more easily.
The good news is that whitening your teeth can completely improve your smile. There are over-the-counter treatments, but the results that come with professional, in-office whitening treatment are considered to be among the safest, fastest, and most effective means of achieving a whiter smile. In addition, in-office whitening is safe, while over-the-counter treatments can be dangerous to teeth and gums.
In-office whitening is now a quick and easy procedure, thanks to advancements in dental products and technology.
Teeth whitening involves applying a bleaching gel directly onto the teeth, which is activated using a heat and light source, such as a dental laser. The bleaching solution stays on the teeth for 30-60 minutes, depending on the desired outcome. This method has proven to reveal dramatic results immediately following the treatment. In one visit, your smile can be restored to its flashy glory!
