Valentine’s Day is almost here, which means that more people than ever are thinking about how best to impress a potential romantic partner. However, a lot of people are missing the most important thing: caring for their teeth!

If studies are to be believed, then having a good smile is the most important thing you can do to improve your love life. Here’s a rundown of what the science says, and what you can do to improve the look of your teeth.

A Good Smile: The Ultimate Dating Lifehack

As it turns out, bad teeth might have turned off a partner, even if you haven’t realized it. According to a study conducted by the dental poll firm DentaVox, 68% of people have decided not to date somebody because of oral health issues, and 57% decided not to date someone specifically because of bad breath.

These studies comport with information that we’ve had for a while. One survey conducted by back in 2013 found 58% of men and 71% of women think that smile is a must-have feature in a partner, more so than hair, nails, shoes, or the car someone drives.

If this is to be believed, having a good smile is one of the best things you can do to attract someone.

How to Get a Smile That Will Impress

If you want a smile that’s sure to draw people in, there are a few things you can try:

Dental Hygiene

Keeping your smile in good health starts with solid dental hygiene. Brush twice a day with whitening toothpaste to keep your smile bright, and floss once a day to break up plaque deposits. By doing that, you’ll be able to break up stains and prevent the bad breath that comes from gum disease.

Cosmetic Dentistry

If your teeth need a little bit of a boost, your dentist has a wide variety of cosmetic dental techniques that can give you the smile you’re looking for. Between teeth whitening, dental crowns, and porcelain veneers, your dentist can completely transform your appearance for the better.
