Other than having a bright, white smile there are several other ways that you can ensure that your Valentine’s Day date is impressed, such as:
- Practice good oral hygiene –be sure to brush your teeth once before breakfast and again before you go to bed. You should also floss every day. Additionally, using a tongue scraper or brushing your tongue will help get rid of the bacteria that cause bad breath.
- Keep your breath fresh – Along with brushing your tongue, chewing sugar-free gum or sucking on sugarless mints will also help prevent bad breath.
- Fix imperfections – If you have cosmetic issues, consider getting them fixed. This could include stains, chips, gaps, alignment issues, and more.
