Greet the Holidays with a Smile That Dazzles

Whether your teeth have lost their luster or have imperfections, there are ways to completely revitalize your smile fast. And our team at The Dental Touch in Oakland, California, can help. 

Here are a few ways a simple office visit can give you a dazzling smile this holiday season.

Teeth cleaning

It’s easy to overlook one of the easiest ways to keep your smile looking its best: a professional cleaning.

Even when you follow the best at home oral hygiene routine, plaque and tartar can still build up on your teeth. Plus, your diet can leave your teeth stained and discolored.

During a professional cleaning, we remove buildup and scrub your teeth clean with polish. This visit alone can leave your teeth looking brighter, whiter, and healthy again. We also look for any problems that could put your oral health at risk, like gum disease.

We recommend having these professional cleanings every six months so you really have something to smile about.

Teeth whitening

Unfortunately, some staining doesn’t respond to cleaning alone. Several things can lead to tooth discoloration, including: 

However, professional teeth whitening treatments can often provide solutions.

At The Dental Touch, we rely on the Zoom® in-office teeth-whitening system. Zoom’s professional-grade whitening solution penetrates the toughest stains, even those caused by aging and medication. But the best part? One office visit can leave you with teeth up to eight shades lighter — that means you won't have to wait to show off your brand new smile.

We also offer professional teeth whitening solutions that you use at home. These systems still offer spectacular results, but it can take a few weeks for them to work.

Dental veneers

If you have smile concerns that need a bit more help, it could be time to consider veneers. This innovative treatment works to conceal dental imperfections by covering them with a thin, toothlike shell. The finished result provides a new and improved smile that looks completely natural.

Common uses for veneers include:

With so many uses, veneers may seem like a time-consuming treatment. However, we can usually make, custom-fit, and bond a veneer permanently in place within two office visits.
