Valentine’s Day is coming up fast, and we all know what that means—romantic meetings and sweet treats galore!
While Valentine’s Day is a great chance to celebrate and enjoy the love of those around us,
many Valentine’s Day events involve sweet treats or alcoholic drinks that are not dental-friendly, and many others include getting close with those you care about.
At Mayfield Dental Care, we want our patients to look and feel healthy, both for themselves and for their loved ones.
To help you have a great Valentine’s Day, we hope the following tips will help you make dentist-approved choices on Valentine’s Day!
What Mayfield Dental Care Can Do For You
Whitening. Valentine’s Day calls for kissable lips and white teeth.
If your teeth have become dingy or stained, Mayfield Dental Care can help. Zoom! Whitening is a teeth whitening procedure that delivers whiter results in less than one hour.
The procedure uses the Zoom advanced power chairside lamp, which accelerates the bleaching process. With Zoom! Whitening, the shade of your teeth can improve up to eight times.
The bleaching gel removes persistent stains that resist regular whitening, and the resulting improvement is proven to last longer.
The perfect smile is freshly cleaned. Special days call for extraordinary efforts – and Valentine’s Day is just that special. You’ve probably chosen the ideal outfit for a night on the town, but what about your smile?
Make your smile dazzle by scheduling a dental checkup a few days before a romantic evening. A tartar free smile, all polished and clean, begs your honey to snuggle closer.
As a bonus, a good cleaning can also freshen your breath; perfect for romantic evenings. If you have big plans for Valentine’s Day, call Mayfield Dental Care today, to schedule an appointment for scale and clean.
At Mayfield Dental Care we provide comprehensive dental scale and clean along with different preventive dentistry services for better oral health.
What You Can Do
Be careful with sweets. Valentine’s Day can be a landmine of sugar with candy, chocolate, wine, desserts, and all manner of foods that are stuffed with sugar.
But sugar is the enemy of your teeth. Every time bacteria contacts sugar in your mouth; the result is acid that attacks teeth for 20 minutes or more.
Cavities are caused by tooth decay that destroys the tooth structures and can affect both the enamel and inner layer of the tooth. This may not affect you this Valentine’s Day, but in Valentine’s Days to come, you do want to have all your teeth, right?
Make sure your breath is great. Make sure to brush and floss regularly, and if you go out to dinner on Valentine’s Day remember a few things to help your breath stay kissably sweet.
First, don’t smoke – it not only smells bad, but it restricts blood flow to your mouth, causes dry mouth, and can lead to chronic bad breath. To make a Valentine’s Day date easier, we’ve broken down the steps to good breath on the day:
Before the Date
- Brush your teeth (and tongue!).
- Floss before your date to remove food that might be stuck between teeth.
- Use mouthwash to kill existing germs.
- Avoid smelly foods like onions and garlic.
- Drink lots of water.
- If you left your mints at home, gnaw on garnish – believe it or not, it neutralises smell-causing sulfides.
- Stay away for chocolate cake and choose a dessert full of berries, oranges or apples, which help cleanse your breath
- Instead of coffee, sip lemon tea.
- Bring a flosser or toothbrush, head to the restroom and ensure there’s nothing between your teeth. Then rinse with water.
- Medicate upset stomachs, especially if you suffer from acid reflux.
- Chew gum with xylitol after eating and drinking.
Relationships require regular check-ins. These Valentine’s Day tips are not all you should do to protect your teeth. Professional dental care is essential, so contact the friendly staff at Mayfield Dental Care to ensure the health of your teeth.
We offer a wide array of services including professional teeth cleaning, dental health education, and restorative and cosmetic procedures. Show your teeth some love this Valentine’s Day by scheduling an appointment with Mayfield Dental Care.
