Valentine’s Day is approaching, and it’s time to prepare for your date! When getting ready to see a romantic interest, you most likely want to look your best. However, it’s important to know this should involve more than just getting a haircut or wearing the latest fashions. According to research, your smile is just as essential (if not more!) when it comes to finding your significant other. Read on to learn more about the connection and what you can do to put your best smile forward!

The Connection Between Dating and a Bright Smile

Most people want to make their best impression on their dates and make sure to present the best version of themselves. And, as stated above, there is more to it than what you wear or how you dress. A study called “The Impact of Whiter Teeth on Key First Impressions” found that nearly 60% of participants were viewed as more outgoing after a teeth whitening treatment. By being open and confident, you can connect more easily with a romantic interest.

Additionally, conducted a similar study where 58% of men and 71% of women ranked teeth as the most important assets for a date to have. The research also found that making a romantic interest laugh and physical attractiveness were on the list of things people wanted in someone they date—which are both aided by a beautiful set of pearly whites!

How to Win Over a Date with Your Smile

The good news is that practicing good preventive oral dental care and improving the look of your smile is completely possible! Here are some helpful tips on how to get your pearly whites to shine on a date:

  • Brush your teeth twice per day for two minutes.
  • Floss once per day to remove food particles between the teeth, stimulate the gums, remove plaque, and lessen inflammation.
  • Consider getting professional teeth whitening. The treatment can brighten your teeth up to eight shades in a one-hour dental appointment!
  • Use fluoride toothpaste to help strengthen tooth enamel for extra cavity protection.
  • Be mindful to brush your tongue to remove plaque buildup and bad odor.
  • Limit sugary and acidic foods which can lead to cavities.
  • Drink water after meals to help wash away sticky and acidic foods and beverages.
  • Visit the dentist for your biannual cleaning and checkup.

As you can see, one way to make a love connection with your Valentine’s Day date is by investing in your smile. With great oral health practices and help from your dentist with professional teeth whitening, you are sure to have many more dates in your future!
