To give the gift of a whiter, brighter smile, you can give the one you loved a new device or treatment that takes their oral care to the next level. We asked top cosmetic dentists to share their best oral care products that will keep your friends and family baring their pearly whites all year long.

1 / 4

“The Oral-B iO Series 9 Electric Toothbrush ($299). It helps remove more plaque than any of the competing toothrbsuhes. It also comes in black and rose quartz.”

—Los Angeles cosmetic dentist Rhonda Kalasho, DD

“My favorite thing about it is that it has a sensor that tells you when you’re brushing just right. Most electronic toothbrushes have a sensor that tells you if you’re brushing too hard only. This toothbrush turns blue if you’re not using enough pressure, green when it’s just right and red if it’s too much. I find that it’s a great tool in making sure patients are brushing adequately. It also has fun graphics and many other features and gives you a great clean feel.”

—San Francisco cosmetic dentist, Swati Agarwal, DDS

“The perfect gift would be Luminuex Oral Essentials Whitening Kit ($45) which contains a whitening toothpaste, whitening mouthwash, whitening strips and soft tooth brush. The main reason is that it is certified nontoxic and it whitens teeth without sensitivity while protecting the oral microbiome, aka the good bacteria.”

—Beverly Hills, CA cosmetic dentist Kourosh Maddahi, DDS

“I’d recommend the Sonicare DiamondClean Smart toothbrush ($250), it’s by far my favorite toothbrush. It is comfortable and gets rid of so much more plaque than a manual toothbrush.”

—Beverly Hills cosmetic dentist Victoria Veytsman, DDS

“In this busy world, we are always looking to maintain our health and beauty with technology that makes life easier. The Sonicare does that.”

—Powell, OH cosmetic dentist Neal Patel, DDS

4 / 4

“I’m a fan of the Waterpic Sonic Fusion 2.0 toothbrush ($219). The combination of an electric toothbrush and water flosser provides an excellent tool for effective and efficient oral care. It’s truly the gift that keeps on giving.”

— Los Altos, CA cosmetic dentist Joseph Field, DDS

“The best gift is a portable Waterpik, this is a gift of a life-long healthy teeth.” 

—New York cosmetic dentist Nargiz Schmidt, DDS

“The best toothbrush I enjoyed using for years was the Interplak rechargeable but the company stopped making them for years. But now Conair just came out with the OSCILL8 Interplak Rechargeable Toothbrush ($49) which has eight individual oscillating tufts that give a gentle but thorough cleaning, polishing and massaging power to both teeth and gums. I purchased one and love it!” 

—Atlanta cosmetic dentist Ronald E. Goldstein, DDS

6 / 6

“The smile gift we recommend is Opalescence Go ($80), an easy to use quick whitening product. These are pre-filled whitening trays with a safe professional strength whitening solution that can be used to freshen up and brighten your smile in the comfort of your own home. They are also easily accessible on Amazon Prime so that white smile is only a click away.”

—New York cosmetic dentist Husam Almunajed, DDS

7 / 7

“The perfect gift is the Supersmile Professional Whiteneing Toothpaste ($25). It’s best at safely maintaining whitened smiles and crowns, veneers, and bondings. It has a special ingredient (Calprox) that breaks down the film layer that attracts bacteria and stains.”

—Pittsburgh cosmetic dentists Drs. Brian and Rob Klaich, DMD
