Going on that first date? Remember to smile! When it comes to finding a potential partner, it's
important not to underestimate the significance of projecting a happy appearance. By and large,
this will ensure you leave a lasting impression when meeting someone for the first time. But that
smile should reveal a set of white teeth, which are known to boost how successful you appear to
others, increase your attractiveness, and even make you appear 5 to 10 years younger.

Considering this, it is easy to understand how teeth whitening can offer positive benefits to dating
and your social life. When it comes to first dates, one feature that can instantly make a truly bad
impression is a display of discoloured teeth and bad breath.

Online dating? Not surprisingly, confidence is key when it comes to your online profiles, and a
broad smile can make all the difference. Research has consistently shown that displaying a
genuine smile can significantly enhance the attractiveness of both men and women. Studies make
clear that men rate women higher in terms of attractiveness when they are seen smiling in their
photos. So, if you want to make a positive impression on dating websites, a well-executed smile is
definitely a winning strategy.

Before you embark on that initial encounter, here are five more suggestions to help you feel more confident:

  • Have fun and be honest about your interests and way of life. People find you more attractive when you express yourself enthusiastically.
  • Stay true to who you are!
  • Maintain an open mind and avoid comparing yourself to others or worrying whether you are "attractive enough" for someone else.
  • Consider using a pleasant mouthwash before a first date. There's truly nothing quite like a refreshing clean mouth and a bright smile.
  • For those concerned about potential dental mishaps during a date, it's wise to have a compact mirror and dental floss at hand.

Combining these helpful suggestions with newly whitened teeth, you can approach any first date or
romantic situation with complete assurance, brimming with confidence, and prepared to encounter
your possible soulmate.

Pearly whites - the dating game changer

Depending on individual taste, you can choose between two teeth whitening methods. If you're
constantly on the go, teeth whitening at home could be the answer because the process is
designed to fit conveniently into your hectic schedule. On the other hand, having a professional
dentist do it at their clinic (“in-office”) is likely to deliver quicker and better results.

Expert dental whitening by your dentist

If you want rapid results and sparkling white teeth after the dental session, the professional option is probably your first choice. Opting for dentist-performed teeth whitening has the advantage of being quick, lasting approximately an hour to 90 minutes. Some people report sensitivity after whitening, but the way a dentist will apply the whitener to your teeth will reduce this risk. If you whiten your teeth yourself, the liquid may seep into your gums and cause inflammation. Any teeth whitening treatment may cause some sensitivity; however, this should only last 24-48 hours.

Teeth whitening at home under your dentist's supervision

The alternative to a professional in-officer service is home-based tooth whitening. The biggest benefit is that this whitening process matches your lifestyle and routine – you can do it whenever you want. Additionally, this whitening approach is cost-effective as it eliminates the need for a dentist's time and expertise. You get your tray, whitening gel, and dentist checkups for £200 to £400. It will whiten well and cheaply, a win-win. Nevertheless, this option may take longer than in-office whitening and requires multiple applications of whitening gel and the use of a tray before any noticeable difference is visible. 

Start a love story with your brightest smile

To leave a lasting impression on a prospective partner, be sure to maintain proper oral hygiene. Brush your teeth twice a day, floss daily, and use an antiseptic mouthwash to maintain good oral hygiene. These practices not only improve the appearance of your teeth but also help prevent oral health issues. And don’t forget that smile!
