How to Prep Your Smile for Holiday Parties

12/19/2019

With the end of the year upon us, it’s time to get prepped for the yearly lineup of holiday parties. Whether it’s for work or with friends, we know you want to look your best. And looking your best means smiling your best.

While we’ve used teeth whitening near Hoffman Estates to help our patients’ smiles shine that’s not the only way to prep your smile for holiday parties. So in this post, we’ll review a few of the things you can do to make sure your smile is white and bright.

Regular Dental Hygiene

Whatever you do to prep your smile should start with good regular dental hygiene. That means visiting your dentist regularly as well as brushing and flossing daily. It’s also a good idea to avoid foods that are bad for your teeth, such as candy and foods with high sugar content.

Teeth Whitening near Hoffman Estates

If you’d like to level up from regular dental hygiene, teeth whitening is a great way to restore brightness in a dull smile or correct tooth stains. The way we do it at Schumer Family Dental Care is to create a custom-fitted mouthguard to hold the whitening agent against your teeth. By wearing this mouthguard for just 30 minutes for two to three weeks, your teeth will be significantly brighter.

Crowns or Veneers

For some patients, teeth whitening near Hoffman Estates isn’t enough. In these cases, it may make sense to use crowns or porcelain veneers to restore your smile in time for the holiday parties. Veneers are thin shells of ceramic that your dentist will adhere to the front of your teeth. And don’t worry, veneers look and function just like regular teeth. In other words, no one at your holiday party will have any idea you have veneers.
