There is nothing quite like seeing your loved one smile! Hopefully, they feel confident enough to freely flash their grin because unfortunately, many people don’t. A new study conducted by OnePoll found that 57% of Americans cover their mouths when they laugh due to insecurity over their teeth. Additionally, one in two will always often try to smile with their mouth closed. So, in honor of loving the special smile in your life, consider some dentist-approved gifts for Valentine’s Day to keep their teeth bright and healthy! Here are four great ideas from your dentist in Dallas.
#1. An Electric Toothbrush
The advancements in dental tools have come so far…and that includes toothbrushes! As a matter of fact, research conducted by scientists over a period of 11 years found that people who use an electric toothbrush have healthier gums, less tooth decay, and keep their teeth for longer, compared with those who use a manual toothbrush. If your loved one doesn’t have one yet, Valentine’s Day is the perfect day to gift them one! There are so many excellent choices on the market, and you are guaranteed to find one that your special someone will love.
#2. A Waterpik Flosser
A big part of having a healthy smile is cleaning between your teeth. By removing food debris, you are protecting your smile from the bad bacteria that leads to tooth decay. To make it easier for your sweetheart to keep their pearly whites clean, consider a Waterpik flosser. This clinically proven tool is recommended by 9 out of 10 dentists and is the first water flosser brand to earn the American Dental Association (ADA) Seal of Acceptance!
#3. Professional Teeth Whitening
Who doesn’t want a perfectly white smile? It makes you look and feel vibrant and youthful. You can make your loved one’s teeth truly luminous by gifting them with professional teeth whitening. In as little as an hour, their smile can be up to eight shades whiter! Or a dentist can simply provide custom-made trays and a high-quality bleaching gel so they can whiten their teeth in the comfort of their home! In just two weeks, they’ll have a brighter smile.
#4. Smile-Friendly Dental Products
It can be fun to give gifts that are unique. You can give a “Smile Basket” to your loved one with some specialized dental products. In addition to the above-mentioned products, you can include flavored dental floss for a tasty way for them to clean their teeth on the go. Nowadays, they even have delicious flavors like cupcake, bubblegum, and even bacon! You can also throw in a specialized toothbrush holder or some silicone straws that protect their teeth and help the environment.
Now you are ready to show love to your partner with these dentist-approved gifts. They will express appreciation for not just for who they are, but how their smile lights up your life!
