The holidays are fast approaching. Is your smile prepared for the parties, the family holiday pictures, the in-laws you haven’t seen in a year? If not, we can help!

The first and easiest way to improve your smile is to improve your brushing habit. Brush twice a day, for 2 full minutes each time. If you find it difficult to brush for a full two minutes, try setting a timer.

Have you had a professional cleaning recently? Professional cleanings are excellent for keeping your smile healthy and bright. It would be a good idea to schedule a cleaning soon, in case of problems. Getting a cavity filled or another dental procedure could put a real damper on your holiday plans.

What are your options if you already brush twice a day for 2 minutes and have had your professional cleaning recently, but your teeth are still not as white as you would like? It may be time to consider a tooth whitening procedure. This can be done at the dental office, with at-home bleach trays or strips, or with whitening toothpaste–depending on the level of whitening required and the time that you have available. Even after a whitening treatment, it is a good idea to continue using whitening toothpaste to keep your smile bright white.
