Teeth Whitening For The Holidays

by | Teeth Whitening, Cosmetic Dentistry, McKinney Dentists

Want your smile to look its best for the Holidays?

In this video, Dr. Marvin Berlin gives you great tips for keeping your teeth white and clean during all those delicious holiday meals!

As Dr. Berlin explains:

Our teeth are actually quite like sponges and they’ll soak up colors from drinks you may be enjoying during the holidays like red wine or other strongly colored beverages such as coffee or tea. So make sure to give your mouth and teeth a quick rinse after you enjoy your drink. If you enjoy Christmas cookies or other desserts that contain sticky, gummy ingredients, make sure you brush your teeth afterwards. And, of course, watch out for hard items such as nuts, Christmas canes and hard candies that can actually damage your enamel or chip your teeth. If an emergency occurs, be sure to give us a quick call.

Have you considered Teeth Whitening at our McKinney, TX dental office?

As Dr. Marvin Berlin explained in the video, you can get some quick results with Teeth Whitening. While there are products being advertised as easy, do-it-yourself at home solutions, we recommend that you be treated by the cosmetic dentistry experts that you trust at McKinney Dentist. Here is a quick comparison of home vs professional dental office alternatives for teeth whitening.

Teeth Whitening at Home

You don’t have to look hard to find them – they’re easily found in grocery stores, pharmacies, big box stores, e-tailers and more. So it easy to grab a teeth whitening kit on a whim, just to see if you get any encouraging results.

Convenience is one of the biggest selling points of off-the-shelf teeth whitening products, but these kits aren’t without their drawbacks:

Any whitening treatment can make untreated oral health issues worse

They aren’t as potent as professional whitening solutions

Teeth Whitening at a Dentist’s Office

One of the biggest perks to having your teeth whitened in a dentist’s office is that your treatment will be monitored by dental professionals. But the benefits to in-office whitening don’t end there:

  • Your dentist can spot and treat issues, such as cavities, before clearing you for teeth whitening
  • Your dentist has access to whitening treatments that are more potent than those offered in a retail kit
  • Your dentist can coordinate other cosmetic treatments with your whitening plan, which can be critical because dental restorations, such as dental crown, won’t whiten

Considerations for Whitening at Home or In-Office

Done right, teeth whitening is generally safe. Yet, there are still key things to consider before deciding to embark on a teeth whitening plan:

  • Whitening may make sensitive teeth more sensitive
  • Whitening won’t change the color of a restoration such as crown, bridges and implants
  • Results begin to fade away just a few weeks after the last treatment
