Getting Your Smile Ready for the Holidays

‘Tis the season to be jolly and smile in what seems like 100s of photos with friends, family and loved ones. Forget ugly Christmas sweaters and beautiful home decor, what’s the one thing that people notice in any photo? Your smile. One thing that you can ask yourself before the holiday season truly picks up is that is your smile holiday ready?

Every smile is beautiful, however, due to some habits, there is a lack of sheen and brightness that makes you conscious of it. Just like any other body part, your teeth too go through wear and tear, which is why they require a boost every now and then. Getting your teeth ready for the holiday involves a simple process; teeth whitening.

Even after a thorough dental regimen, there are chances that you don’t have pearly white teeth and there are many reasons why. Coffee, tea, and wine can stain your teeth, thus removing the shine and luster from what are perfectly healthy teeth. Other factors include plaque and tartar buildup that not only damage your teeth but also affect its shine. 

The teeth whitening procedure can either be done by a dentist or at home. Regardless of which option you choose, it has to begin with a thorough cleaning. After removing all plaque and buildup professionally, the next step is to get that picture-perfect smile, just in time for the holidays!

An at-home-kit involves teeth whitening strips that are not only easy to use but also are highly effective. These strips do need to be prescribed in order for them to be used at home. They typically come in a pack of 10 and brighten your teeth with gradual use. Hence, this is a solution that needs to be executed well before time.

The more professional options include a laser whitening or bleaching, this is typically a 30-90 minute treatment that gives you sparkling white teeth instantly. If you have a holiday party coming up or you want to look your best for your own holiday dinner, this is a safe and fast teeth whitening option.

Regardless of which option you choose, it is important to remember that a smile is truly effective when you’re confident, happy and thriving. Using these treatments are a good way to help you feel comfortable in your own enamel and make the most of the cheerful holiday season, with a smile!
