It’s easy to think that a kissable mouth is all about the lips, but while a plump, sexy pout might well get you that first kiss, good oral health is what will bring them back for more. The team here at CK Dental practice in Bristol have come up with some top tips to ensure that you are as kissable as you can be this Valentines Day:

Pay a visit to the dental hygienist

Of course, brushing your teeth twice a day, flossing and using mouthwash regularly will all help to ensure that you maintain a good standard of oral hygiene, but if you want to make extra sure that your teeth are sparkling clean and your breath as fresh as a daisy, it might be worth making an appointment to see the dental hygienist at our Bristol dentist practice.

The hygienist can give your teeth a thorough clean and offer advice as to what foods you can eat to help avoid gum disease and tooth decay.

Make sure your breath is minty fresh

Bad breath can be the most off-putting factor when it comes to kissability, so make sure yours is as fresh as can be by brushing your teeth and gargling with mouthwash before that big date.

If you’re a smoker try to quit now, to ensure the smell has well and truly gone by Valentines Day, and on the night itself avoid foods that are heavy in garlic.

Consider whitening

If your teeth are severely stained – whether that be from smoking, excessive tea or coffee drinking or just general wear and tear – then tooth whitening in Bristol might be a good option for you.

Here at CK Dental, we offer a personalised, home-use whitening kit that promises to whiten your teeth in just two weeks, so if you start now, you can have a full set of pearly whites just in time for the big day!

Initially, you need to come for an appointment at our Bristol dental clinic, where our dentist, Cornelius Krause can assess your suitability for teeth whitening and make an impression of your teeth, which will be used to create your personalised whitening tray.

You will then be given this tray to take home, along with the whitening solution and instructions on how to use them.
