With Valentine’s Day right around the corner, you may be thinking about giving the person you love something special. While flowers, candies, and cards are popular options, why not consider a present that will ensure better oral health? Before opening your wallet to make a purchase, consider these three dentist-approved gifts that will be sure to make your partner smile brighter and longer.

Enhance Their Appearance with Teeth Whitening

A gift certificate for professional teeth whitening is a great idea for anyone who desires a whiter, brighter smile. Tooth stains can form for many reasons, often leaving individuals feeling self-conscious about their appearance.

By choosing to surprise your special someone with the gift of a cosmetic treatment they might not otherwise pay for themselves, you can expect them to be excited about the idea of a more beautiful smile each time they look in the mirror.

Don’t Discount Chocolate

Although it might seem as if chocolate of any kind will be harmful to teeth, the dark variety is actually known for its “better” qualities. If the person you’re buying for cannot get enough of this tasty goodness, give them the gift of dark chocolate.

Containing far less sugar than milk or white chocolate, it is also much easier to clean off teeth as opposed to other sticky candies. Not only will it satisfy their craving, but there is a good chance you’ll be able to find it nicely wrapped inside a large red heart at your local grocery store.

Consider a Fruit Bouquet

While a bouquet of flowers can be enough to generate a noteworthy smile, try something different this year and give your partner one made of fresh fruits. With various companies providing an array of options when it comes to size and the type of fruit, you can customize these bouquets to your liking.

Whether it’s strawberries, apples, grapes, and oranges that your special someone loves or maybe bananas, nectarines, berries, and mangoes, not only will you give them something sweet to snack on, but you’ll also be doing their smile a favor thanks to the natural, not processed, sugars found in fresh fruit.

Allow yourself to be creative when giving a gift this Valentine’s Day. By keeping their smile in mind, they’ll enjoy more time spent with you instead of their dentist.
