It’s easy to let holidays sneak up on you, but with Valentine’s Day right around the corner, our La Costa Dental team hopes you’re all ready for the big day with your special someone. As is the case with most holidays, Valentine’s Day traditions often include consuming sweets and other foods and beverages that may damage teeth. In this post, we’ll talk about some of the Valentine’s Day sweets that aren’t such a treat for your teeth, and walk you through some tips to improve your smile and wow your Valentine and look and feel your best all year round.
Everything in Moderation
You don’t need to miss out on all the delicious chocolates and fizzy beverages this Valentine’s Day, but you may want to cut back. Consuming too many sugary or acidic foods and drinks can weaken tooth enamel and allow for an excessive buildup of plaque and tartar, leading to tooth decay or gum disease. Choose your treats wisely and consume them as part of a balanced diet to avoid unnecessary oral health concerns this Valentine’s Day.
Wow Your Valentine with Flawless Smiles
Cosmetic dentistry treatments are very popular with patients around Valentine’s Day. If you want to improve the appearance of your smile and wow your Valentine, our La Costa Dental team offers a range of cosmetic dentistry solutions. One of the fastest and easiest ways to improve the appearance of your smile this Valentine’s Day is to schedule a teeth whitening appointment with our team. We offer both in-office and take-home teeth whitening services that can brighten your smile up to ten shades over the course of treatment. We also offer a variety of other cosmetic solutions to help you achieve a picture-perfect smile.
