Ah, love is in the air, and that means Valentine’s Day is just around the corner. Whether you’re planning a romantic evening with your partner or gearing up for a fun night out with friends, there’s one thing everyone wants: ultimate kissability! To ensure you’re at your best this Valentine’s Day, here are 5 expert tips to elevate your smile and your oral health to the top of their game.

1. Put Down the Cigarettes

If you’re trying to be ultra-kissable this Valentine’s Day, try to stay away from smoking. Research performed by Coy Callison and his team at Texas Tech dug into the question of the attractiveness of smokers.

Their findings suggest that smokers are found to be less healthy, less attractive, and less sophisticated than their nonsmoking counterparts. Tobacco smoke clings to your teeth and gums, making it impossible to miss with a kiss.

2. Bust Bad Breath

Fresh breath is essential for confident and enjoyable kisses. Practice good oral hygiene by brushing your teeth twice a day, flossing daily, and using non-alcoholic mouthwash regularly. Consider keeping breath mints or xylitol chewing gum handy for a quick breath freshener before those romantic moments.

3. Moisturize

Keep your lips moisturized with a nourishing lip balm or other moisturizer. Look for products with hydrating ingredients like shea butter, coconut oil, or hyaluronic acid. Apply lip balm throughout the day to keep your lips soft and kissable.

4. Whiten Your Teeth

Are your pearly whites looking a bit yellow lately? Teeth whitening treatments can restore your natural glow and keep your smile looking suave. Whiter teeth are known to make a person seem more attractive, intelligent, and confident. These are all traits that will make you irresistible when the big day comes.

5. Cavities Are Sharable

Whatever you can do to reduce the number of cavities and bacteria in your mouth, the better. Visit your dentist before Valentine’s Day to have all your cavities treated to be safe! The fact is, the bacteria that cause tooth decay can be shared with your partner through saliva. That’s one gift that’s sure to dampen the mood!

Bonus Tip: Smile More

Above all, confidence is the most attractive quality when it comes to kissability. Smile often and carry yourself with an air of self-assurance. Research by Dr. Christian Valuch from the University of Vienna revealed that more people find smiles attractive.

There is definitive science behind the connection with a gleeful grin, happiness, and your appeal to others. The next time you share a kiss with your loved one, try smiling to make it a more memorable experience.
