December 2013

The holidays are traditionally a time when family and friends from near and far can get together and make merry.  The holiday season is a time when we should be smiling more than ever.  Our smiles convey warmth, happiness, and goodwill to one another.  They also reflect the health and wellness of our mouth, mind, and body.

If you have been hesitant to show your holiday smiles because your teeth are less than pearly white, you can stop fretting.  Did you know that your teeth could be dramatically brighter after just one visit to the dentist?  With in-office tooth whitening, it’s not too late to get dazzling white teeth in time for the holidays!

Before you begin any whitening system, however, it’s important to find out what’s causing your teeth to look dull in the first place.  Otherwise, whitening teeth is like papering over a hole in the wall.  It hides the defect, but doesn’t solve the problem.  We start by performing a thorough exam to check for hidden trouble, such as cavities or plaque buildup.  After the initial exam and a good cleaning we can then begin the whitening treatment.

So if you’ve been dreaming of white teeth for Christmas, give us a call.  During this celebratory time we ought to remember to take care of ourselves and maintain good dental lifestyle habits.   I consider brushing and flossing an exercise program for your mouth.  I recommend brushing and flossing twice daily.

We provide emergency dental care 365 days a year, and the Christmas holiday is no exception.  If you have any dental problems at any time of the year, please don’t wait.  Call us and we will make sure to see you right away.

We hope you enjoy the festivities with your friends and family.  I am pleased to wish you all a very Merry Christmas!  May God bless you with good health, happiness, success & prosperity!!
