A few extra tips
Show off a captivating smile by whitening and brightening your teeth beforehand. Though a professional treatment will get you the best results, you can also try over the counter treatments. Start a week or two in advance for best whitening results. There are many strips, toothpastes and gels that will whiten, it depends on your preference. Don’t forget to floss your teeth and use mouthwash after brushing, and bring some breath-mints to pop throughout the evening to keep your breath as fresh as your smile.
A great tip regarding cologne is to not wear too much; you do not want to overpower your date, as it will backfire. You want to smell inviting, so a light and fresh scent will do the trick. You can test out different scents during the weeks beforehand.
Prepare your clothes the night before, making sure your outfit is free of wrinkles and stains. If you don’t have the skill set or time to do so yourself, take your outfit to a local dry cleaner who will spruce it up for you in no time.
