Valentine’s Day is right around the corner and we want to remind you that it’s all about loving yourself, and your smile! We have some easy tips to fall back in love with your teeth just in time for Valentine’s Day this year.
Keeping Your Breath Fresh & Teeth White
It may sound simple, but having bad breath can quickly ruin how you feel about your smile. The easiest way to fight bad breath is by keeping a travel toothbrush, floss, and mouthwash in your bag. Going out to dinner? No problem! Enjoy your meal and follow it with a quick brush to succeed in having fresh breath. Brushing your teeth after meals is a great way to keep your teeth white and avoid any staining from acidic foods.
Indulge Your Sweet Tooth Without the Toothache
Sometimes the best part of Valentine’s Day is all the sweet treats, but the reality is that many of these sugary treats eat away at your teeth. Looking for a good substitute? Here are some great options that will do less damage to your teeth.
- Dark chocolate. This is a good choice since it contains less sugar than milk chocolate and is less likely to stick to your teeth.
- Fresh fruit. Sticking to fruit is a great way to avoid eating artificial sugars that often cause cavities. Looking for something a little sweeter? Melt down some dark chocolate and dip the fruit in it!
