Are you ready for Valentine’s Day?

A few kissing facts to get you ready for Valentine’s Day!

  • Kissing can cause cavities. If you kiss someone who may have bad bacteria in his/her mouth, their saliva could pass the bacteria on to you, thereby causing cavities. On the other hand, according to Dr. Mello, others believe that kissing may actually prevent cavities since salvia is the body’s natural way of cleaning the mouth.
  • South Africa Bans Kissing. In December 2007 the South African government banned kissed involving anyone under the age of 16, regardless of consent.
  • A Lifetime of Kissing. The average person will spend an estimated 20,160 minutes kissing in their lifetime.
  • First Kiss. 50% of all people have their first kiss before the age of 14.
  • Start Your Engines. The average woman will kiss 79 guys before she’s married.
  • Kisses & Calories. You burn 26 calories in a one minute kiss.
  • First Movie Kiss. John C. Rice kissed May Irwin in 1896, and became the first couple to be recorded kissing in the film The Kiss.
  • Blarney Stone. According to legend, any person who kisses the Blarney Stone in the Blarney Castle in Cork, Ireland, will be endowed with the gift of gab.
  • Kissing Record. In September 1990 Alfred Wolfram kissed 8,001 people in 8 hours (over 16 people a minute) at the Minnesota Renaissance Festival.
  • Ninety Percent Habit-Forming. Ninety percent of people in the world engage in kisses on the lips. Other cultures, such as Eskimos, rub noses.

Gosmiles not that much better then Crest White strips to be honest. As a dental hygienist, I’m very surprised it “won” Sephora’s top choice…then again, what other whiteners do they even sell? Personally, for sensitive teeth and whitening i think dentist.net would be a better resource. I recommend Dr. Collin’s All White bleaching trays and desensitizing gel . I love most things sephora, but they should stay out of the dental realm on this one : ).

Cassie, I definitely agree. As a coffee addict, I find whitening products essential and Gosmiles did absolutely nothing for me. I did try Dr Collins All white line and it’s awesome! Cleared away the last tinge of brown without making my teeth sensitive. How refreshing to see a product that actually delivers on its promises!
