What’s on your wish list this season? Are you already done purchasing gifts and giving hints to friends and loved ones about what you would like to receive for the holidays? If so, you may be thinking ahead to the quickly approaching New Year, considering what you would like to do for yourself or improve upon. If a brighter smile is one of your main goals, we suggest you learn more about the ways to achieve a brighter smile, including teeth whitening and other helpful tips.
Tip #1: Be Careful This Holiday Season
The holidays are a very easy time to relax and forget to care for your smile. When it comes to problems with discoloration, stain-causers abound! For instance, anything berry-based, red wine, deep colored sauces, coffee, tea – highly pigmented foods – will result in staining. To avoid new stains, do one of two things: Limit these foods. Or, wash your mouth out with water after you consume them. Brush your smile 30 minutes later. Simple and very effective.
Tip #2: Visit Us For Cosmetic Care
Contact us soon to schedule a cosmetic consultation with us. We will speak with you about achieving a brighter smile. For some, traditional teeth whitening is an efficient and highly effective solution.

Tip #3: Keep Up Your Pearly Whites
Once you address your teeth whitening needs, it is important to do what you can to keep your smile looking its best. To maintain a lustrous, glowing grin, we suggest the following easy-to-follow recommendations:
