As Valentine’s Day approaches, many of us can feel the love in the air. With the reminders of love in the form of hearts, balloons, flowers, candy, and more this time of year, we sometimes forget a sign of love that we carry with us year-round: a smile.
Your smile is an important way to show who you are, as someone who is friendly, happy, and taking care of their teeth! By sharing a smile with someone else, you can improve their day and send a little love their way.
Here are 3 things you can do to feel good about your smile and boost your smile:
- Teeth Whitening
When someone first notices your smile, it will make it memorable by being bright, and white. Dull, stained teeth can be distracting, and pull attention in a negative way.
Teeth whitening is an easy way to improve your smile quickly. While there are many over-the-counter options for teeth whitening, nothing is as effective as having your dentist whiten your teeth.
- Clear Aligners
Even more than a white smile, straight teeth not only improve the appearance of your smile but also your health of it. An aligned smile allows you to clean your teeth well, chew regularly, and relieve pain from crowded teeth.
Invisalign alternative to braces. Through a series of nearly invisible aligners, you can incrementally shape your smile over time. Additionally, these aligners are removable, allowing you to remove them for eating, cleaning, and essential occasions.
- Implants / Veneers
For those who have more complex dental issues – including chipped, worn down, or discolored teeth – veneers can be a good solution.
Veneers are usually made of thin porcelain, which is bonded to teeth and custom-fit to your smile. Veneers are a great choice for someone seeking a full smile makeover.
Handle Valentine Candy with Care!
Not only does your smile affect how other people view you, but it also has a tremendous impact on your own level of confidence and self-worth. Instead of treating yourself to a box of heart candies this Valentine’s Day, why not invest in a smile that will last a lifetime?
When it comes to the risks that holidays pose to your oral health, Valentine’s Day is right up there with Halloween! That’s all because of the candy. People of all ages swap sweet treats on Valentine’s Day. But how can you keep your teeth safe when they’re surrounded by sugary residue?
It’s not realistic to tell you to avoid it completely, but candy in moderation is best if you can’t resist a candy heart or two. Even then, you should rinse your mouth with water to wash away the sweet particles left behind. If you really want to avoid cavities and gum disease, then you’ll want to think outside the heart-shaped box on Valentine’s Day. Skip the sugary, sticky candy hearts and caramel-filled chocolates and try to stick to chocolate-covered fruits or create non-edible Valentine’s Day gifts.
Dental health is one of the main pillars of your overall health. This is why it’s essential to keep your teeth healthy with regular dentist appointments and proper dental hygiene. These Valentine's dental tips will give you a clean and bright smile so you can have the date of your dreams.
