With Valentines Day just around the corner, people are thinking now more than ever about how to make the best impression on others. Whether you’re preparing for a date night or wondering why you don’t have one, people often find themselves thinking about how they come off around this time of year.

One element you may not have considered is your oral health. While most people could probably guess that a beautiful smile is desirable, few people realize just how important it is. Here’s what you should know about the relationship between beautiful teeth and a healthy love life.

What Your Smile Could Mean for your Love Life

If you had to guess, you’d probably assume that having a nice smile is important to making a good impression, especially on a date. As it turns out, there’s data that corroborates this.

Before the era of dating apps, was one of the few venues for singles to connect online. They have an interest in knowing what draws people together, which is why they frequently conduct surveys about people’s romantic preferences.

In a survey of over 5,000 people, Match found that topped the list of “must-haves” for a romantic partner for 58 percent of men and 71 percent of women. This made it more important for potential partners than hair, shoes, nails, or even what kind of car someone has.

How to Get a Date-Ready Smile

If you’re looking to get a set of pearly whites that are sure to stun, you don’t have to try all that hard. The most important thing is consistent hygiene: Brush twice a day, floss daily, and see your dentist biannually for cleanings.

If you think your smile may need a little more help than that, you might also want to talk to a dentist about cosmetic dentistry. This includes treatments ranging from teeth whitening to veneers, allowing you to address a variety of different aesthetic problems with your smile. After this, you’ll have teeth that will make your love life as rich as possible.
