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 / 5

“The Oral-B iO Series 9 Electric Toothbrush ($299). A smile is one of the best facial expressions ever and holds a great deal of power. It truly allows the happiness that a person is feeling to shine from within and brightens the entire face. It instantly puts a person in a good mood and is infectious to everyone around them and conveys a positive message.”

—Beverly Hills, CA cosmetic dentist Marjan Mirani, DDS 

“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) the contains a whitening toothpaste, whitening mouthwash, whitening strips and soft tooth brush. The main reason is that is a 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 / 5

“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

5 / 5

“The Apa White Kit ($140). It comes with the Apa White Toothpaste, Apa White Rinse, and Apa Pink Gel make. When used twice daily, they help strengthen and brighten your smile and deliver results that last.”

—New York cosmetic dentist Michael Apa, DDS

“The soft bristles, the incredible cleaning power and the soft brush head of the backing of the Curaprox Hydrosonic Pro ($200) toothbrush make for an exceptional experience. In fact, the profound cleanliness of this device has moved me to purchase one for each member of my staff, who all agree it is amazing. We promote it heavily to our patients because we know through experience that the Hydrosonic will deliver an optimum cleaning compared to any brush on the market! It is an incredible advancement in oral hygiene care.”

—Chandler, AZ cosmetic dentist Eric Bjerke, DMD

“My pick would definitely be Cocofloss. My favorite is the S’mores Set ($35) that features Dark Chocolate and Vanilla Bean scents. The box is graham cracker inspired, which is cool. Whether the recipient likes chocolate or vanilla, you are sure to make them smile.”

—New York cosmetic dentist Jason Kasarsky, DDS

8 / 8

“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
