Valentine’s Day is the time to give the perfect gift to your loved one or to treat yourself. While flowers and candy have always been acceptable traditional gifts, perhaps it’s time to try something a little different. People spend billions of dollars on gifts every Valentine’s Day. The gift of a healthy smile can have a long-lasting benefit that’s worth the investment.
The average person is planning to spend more than $140 on traditional Valentine’s Day gifts, according to Prosper Insights & Analytics. People typically buy jewelry, flowers, candy, and greeting cards for spouses, significant others, children, parents, classmates, teachers and themselves.
You really can’t measure the value of a healthy mouth. Elle Macpherson revealed in a recent interview, “I’ve learned that a good smile, good teeth, good hearing, good skin and a good mood are worth a thousand injectables and Botox and facial masks.”
Tooth Whitening and Veneers are cosmetic dental procedures that can improve a smile and help to build confidence. While crowns and dental implant restorations can also revive the appearance of the teeth, they can also restore dental health. The gift of an routine oral hygiene and checkup visit can be helpful to a student on a limited budget.
This Valentine’s Day, give the gift of dental health or show your teeth some love.
