Do you have a special Valentine’s Day dinner lined up? Whether it’s a blind date or with the love of your life, making extra efforts to so you’re especially kissable will help set the mood and show your date how much you care! Read on for four oral health-conscious tips to curb bad breath, prevent cavities from spreading, and let your date know you’re ready for a smooch!

Make Your Smile Flawlessly Bright

Despite the fact that no smile is naturally white, many people find bright smiles to be the most attractive and charming. You can really stand out on your date by investing in professional teeth whitening. This one-visit, safe, and effective cosmetic treatment can whiten your teeth by up to eight shades. Plus, you have the option to choose between fast, no-fuss in-office treatment or a comfortable and convenient take-home kit. Both utilize concentrated, professional ingredients that won’t wear down your dental enamel.

Stop Bad Oral Habits

Bad oral habits like smoking and teeth grinding can affect not only your breath, but also the overall appearance of your smile, causing discoloration and worn-down teeth. Before the big date, take steps to stop these habits so your special someone doesn’t decide to turn their cheek to you instead of kissing your lips!

Keep Bad Breath at Bay

In a study from the Dental Laboratories Association out of the UK, 35% of people noted that bad breath was their biggest turn-off. Halitosis, the clinical term for chronic bad breath, can be caused by a variety of factors, with the foods you eat and poor oral hygiene being among them. To keep your mouth fresh, be sure to bring mints or sugar-free chewing gum to chew on after your dinner. Or, if you’re very self-conscious about your halitosis, bring a travel-sized kit of toothpaste, floss, and a toothbrush to quickly freshen up before and during your night out!

Don’t Share Silverware

Although it may be cute, sharing silverware and straws can wreak havoc on not only your own oral health, but also your date’s. Harmful oral bacteria are easily transferrable via sharing a fork or glass, which could lead to oral health problems like cavities and gum disease spreading like wildfire. The best way to get another date is to make sure you don’t accidentally spread dental health problems to each other!
