How to Prepare Your Smile for Christmas

Did you know that while you get ready for Christmas day, it’s also important to prepare your smile as well? Well, it’s true! You deserve to celebrate this Christmas with a healthy and beautiful smile, and we are happy to help you do so. For the best smile possible this holiday season, we recommend doing the following things:

1. Buy a new toothbrush: Generally, it’s best to buy a new toothbrush after you’ve used it for 3-4 months, so we recommend getting a new toothbrush if your current brush has lived a full life. Cleaning your smile with a new toothbrush will help you properly and effectively scrub your smile each day. So, make sure you purchase a soft-bristled toothbrush that has been approved by the American Dental Association.
2. Get your teeth cleaned: Coming into our office for a professional teeth-cleaning appointment is another great way to get your smile ready for Christmas. This appointment will give your smile the proper cleaning it needs to prevent tooth decay, gum disease, and other dental issues. It is also a great opportunity to strengthen and nourish your smile with a fluoride treatment.
3. Use a teeth-whitening treatment: If you wish you had a whiter, brighter smile for your Christmas photos, now is your chance to achieve the appearance you have always wanted! Teeth-whitening treatments are easily accessible, whether you buy them at the store or use our in-office, professional whitening treatment. Either way, now is your chance to work toward the smile of your dreams.

If you do these three things, your smile will be ready for Christmas! If you would like to know more or if you have any questions, please feel free to call 360.464.9797 and talk to our dental team at Smiles Dental today. We also encourage you to schedule an appointment with Dr. Melody Pongmanopap if you are interested in a professional teeth-cleaning or teeth-whitening treatment!
