Spiff Up Your Smile for the Holidays with a Professional Whitening

The holidays are here! That means work parties, dinners with friends, and family get-togethers are quickly filling up your calendar. There’s no denying that the holidays are a magical time to reconnect with the ones you love. That’s why you should look and feel your best this year. There’s no better way to gain confidence than with a professional teeth whitening treatment.

If you’ve thought about teeth whitening, now is the best time to get that pearly white smile just in time for the holidays. That way, you can be camera-ready for all the photos and Instagram stories the holidays often bring. The team at The Dental Touch is here to tell you more about teeth whitening and why you should consider it.

The power of a smile

Smiling is contagious. It also makes you appear more attractive. A smile is an important gesture that can tell a lot about a person. That’s why it's incredibly important to make sure your smile is in tip-top shape. 

Having a good smile doesn't involve just brushing twice a day and flossing daily. It extends to going in for routine dental exams, getting braces, and even teeth whitening. After years of eating and drinking dark-colored foods, it’s only normal that our teeth start to turn to a yellow hue. Luckily, there’s an easy way to get the pearly, bright white smile you’ve always dreamt of. 

What a procedure is like

Get up to eight shades whiter in just one professional teeth whitening treatment. To get the whitest results, we here at The Dental Touch suggest using the Zoom!® whitening treatment. The procedure is completely safe and has zero downtime. So what exactly is a Zoom treatment like?

The first step of the process is having your teeth fit for custom whitening trays. Once the trays are fitted, your dental practitioner will fill the trays with hydrogen peroxide and place them back into your mouth. A special UV light will then be used in the process to help lift your teeth to the lightest shade possible.

Most patients require three treatments, each lasting about 15 minutes. Once the last session is finished, the team suctions the whitening solution from your mouth and applies a fluoride gel to your teeth to help prevent sensitivity. The moment you look in the mirror following the treatments, you’ll notice a bright, flawless smile.

How to extend your results

The results of teeth whitening can last for years, but here are a few ways you can ensure its longevity. One of the best ways to do this is by watching what you eat. Try to avoid food and drinks that are dark in color like coffee, soda, and tomato sauce. If you are to indulge in these types of food, make sure to brush your teeth immediately following. 

Tobacco is one of the worst substances for your teeth and health. If you’re a smoker, quitting is the best option for keeping your teeth white. Many products on the market can help reduce cravings and make quitting easier.

Go in for routine dental cleanings and exams every six months. During each visit, your dentist removes surface stains from your teeth to keep them from getting worse. They will also address any cavities that could lead to further tooth decay.
