If you’ve been seeing flowers, chocolates and a whole lot of red and pink, you know that Valentine’s Day is almost upon us. And if you’re hit by Cupid’s arrow this year, you might have a romantic dinner, delicious chocolates or even some long-stemmed roses in store. Of course, if you have a Valentine, there’s also a good chance you’ll be doing a little kissing. Make sure your mouth is “kiss ready” with our teeth whitening remedies and other smile-enhancing tips!
Call it romantic, affectionate or exhilarating; there may be more to kissing than you knew. In fact, a good kiss releases a whole lot of chemicals that can improve your wellbeing and make you feel good. For instance, kissing triggers the brain to secrete oxytocin, which in turn helps you develop feelings of devotion and affection. If you’ve ever experienced a good kiss, you know it can also give you a little adrenaline rush, which helps you develop your fight-of-flight response. Dopamine, also a side effect of a good smooch, helps your brain process emotions, while serotonin can actually elevate your mood.
Of course, to be “kiss worthy,” you need a beautiful white smile. That’s where our teeth whitening tips can help!
Teeth Whitening is for Lovers!
- Read your toothpaste box before you buy. While not as effective as a teeth whitening treatment, a good whitening toothpaste can help you lighten your teeth by at least one shade.
- Incorporate xylitol into your diet. A natural sweetener, xylitol does wonders for your teeth because it actually helps protect against plaque. Chew xylitol gum or use granulated packets in your coffee or tea.
- Watch what you drink. We don’t want to be the bearers of bad news, but if you want a white, kissable smile, it’s time to cut back on the red wine, coffee, soda and carbonated beverages. These can all discolor your teeth and even damage the enamel.
- Come see us! If you want dramatic teeth whitening results, we can help. Our whitening treatments can help you whiten your smile at least eight times more effectively than you can do at home. That’s worth an afternoon visit, right?
Ready to get kissed? Whiten your smile and enjoy the moment! Happy Valentine’s Day!
