Subscribe to my YouTube Channel

It is more important than ever to maintain a strong oral hygiene routine and a clean mouth. For many years, LISTERINE® has been trusted by millions of people to keep their mouths clean, healthy, and fresh. I teamed up with the brand to spill the tea on what celebrity smiles are really made of! From Kylie Jenner's bright white smile to Cardi B's beautiful pearly whites, I will uncover a few secrets that will leave you smiling from ear to ear!

1. What Can We Do To Get A Smile Like Celebrities?

As a celebrity dentist that has been in practice for over 15 years and specializing in cosmetic dentistry - you can say I've seen it all! There are many factors that influence the health of your teeth and gums, from genetics to diet. However, one thing remains true:

I like to tell my patients that a healthy smile starts with a strong and consistent oral health routine. That means regular brushing, flossing, and finishing your routine off strong by swishing with LISTERINE® twice a day. LISTERINE® Cool Mint Antiseptic Mouthwash is my recommendation for a full mouth clean because simply swishing for 30 seconds twice daily provides 24-hour germ protection. These germs can cause bad breath, plaque, or gingivitis. Once you get in the habit of this, you are on your way to a healthy smile!

2. Swishing With Mouthwash Is A Vital Part Of Good Oral Hygiene Routine

You might be surprised to learn that brushing only reaches 25% of your mouth. That's why you need an effective, long-lasting rinse like LISTERINE® Cool Mint Antiseptic Mouthwash for full dental protection and fresh breath all day! Mouthwash cleans virtually 100 percent of your mouth!  You can also help prevent plaque buildup that leads to gum disease by brushing your teeth two times a day, flossing every day, and rinsing daily with an effective mouthwash such as Listerine ®.  Swishing for just 30 seconds two times a day will kill 99.9% of germs that cause bad breath, plaque, and gingivitis.

3. A Great Smile Will Boost Self-Esteem and Confidence!

You may not think your smile has anything to do with how you feel about yourself, but this couldn't be farther from the truth. Research shows that a person's smile is one of the first things someone notices about them and determines whether they are trustworthy or not. It also affects our self-esteem. For example, people who have crooked teeth tend to avoid smiling because it makes their appearance seem worse than it actually is. This can lead to low self-confidence, which in turn can lead to other problems like depression or anxiety disorders. If you're looking for an easy way to boost your confidence and get a great new smile, start with good dental hygiene!

For my celebrity clients, a smile is part of their livelihood. And behind every camera-worthy smile are strong, healthy teeth. For the average person, a healthy smile can translate into confidence and success which is why I recommend LISTERINE® Strong Teeth Anticavity Fluoride Mouthwash to help strengthen tooth enamel, fight cavities, tooth decay, and freshen breath. In fact, when you rinse for one minute twice a day it strengthens teeth 50% better than brushing alone - and who doesn't want a stronger smile?

4. Kill Germs In Your Mouth!

Gross Fact! Did you know that some people have a build-up of over 400 types of bacteria in their mouths? YUCK!" No one wants bad breath, but it's much more serious than that. Gum disease is an oral health issue with serious long-term effects like receding gums, loose teeth, tooth loss, and bone loss in your jaw. That is why incorporating products such as LISTERINE® Cool Mint Antiseptic Mouthwash with clinically proven health benefits into your everyday oral care routine can not only improve your overall oral health but also effectively kills germs that cause bad breath, plaque, and early gum disease, when used twice daily for 30 seconds.

5. Ask Your Dentist Questions During Your Regularly Scheduled Visits

Research has shown that people who have a dentist they are comfortable with, and visit regularly to maintain their oral health, and live healthier lives. It is important for you to take care of your teeth at home by brushing twice a day and flossing once a day as I mentioned earlier. However, there are many questions that may come up during your dental visits which will need to be answered by your dentist. Here are some questions you should ask when visiting the dentist: First, let your dentist know about any issues you may be having with your teeth or your gums. Then, just ask:

  • How can I improve my overall oral care routine?
  • What should my oral hygiene regimen be?
  • How can I keep my teeth white and stain-free?
  • Do I have any tooth decay or dental health conditions I should know about?
  • Do I need any dental treatments?

Be proactive with your dentist and with your daily routine.
