With Thanksgiving already over, the holiday season is a go. Hanukkah begins this weekend, and Christmas is less than a month away. Holidays mean celebrations and celebrations mean being around a lot of people. Whether you are celebrating with co-workers, friends, or family, you probably want to feel confident in your appearance. Having a bright, white smile is one of the easiest and most effective ways to freshen up your look. The team at Mansfield Dental Associates in Mansfield, Texas can help you get a brighter smile for the holidays at the end of 2018.

Get a Routine Cleaning

One way to brighten up your smile is to make sure that it is as clean as it can possibly be. Routine cleanings can be a great way to remove buildup from the outer layers of your teeth to brighten them up. Professional dental cleanings are also extremely important to your oral health. Every day plaque builds up on your teeth; you remove it by brushing and flossing. If any is missed during your home hygiene routine, it can harden into calcified plaque known as tartar. Tartar cannot be removed at home, but it can be removed during a dental cleaning. It is recommended that everyone get at least two cleanings a year, and most dental insurance plans fully cover preventive cleanings. If you have not had two cleanings in 2018, now is the time to do so.

Whitening Your Teeth

For tougher stains on the outside of your teeth, a whitening treatment may be a great way to brighten your smile. Your dentist can create a customized mouth tray built to your smile’s specifications to send you home with a professional-grade whitening kit. If the discoloration is caused by deeper reasons, your dentist can identify the source and help you find a solution to brighter, whiter teeth.
