Dentists Agree: These Are the 5 Things You Need for a Better Smile

You know when you have a dentist appointment coming up, you always brush and floss extremely well beforehand to get a good report? That's all well and good, but if you're not taking care of your pearly whites year-round, your dentist will be able to tell, and you'll have poor oral health as a result. Cavities, gingivitis, and plaque are just a few dental issues you'll experience from not taking care of your teeth or using the wrong products.

So just like we love enlisting the help of dermatologists to find out what the best skincare products are or makeup artists for their favorite items, we tapped the brains of some of the top dentists in the industry to find out their top picks, as far as toothbrushes (mechanical and manual), floss, mouthwash, and at-home whiteners are concerned. (Spoiler: This answer may not be what you expected). Keep scrolling to find out what they are!
