Cleaning and Polishing
You might think that it’s too late to improve your teeth in time for the holidays, but dentists have special tools that can get the job done quickly and effectively. Dental cleanings are recommended every six months for a reason. Your dentist can remove buildup you cannot get rid of with your regular brushing and flossing routine. If you are behind on your dental cleaning schedule, a cleaning can offer some great whitening benefits.
Removal of built-up plaque and tartar can brighten your smile.
Professional cleaning improves the appearance and health of your gums.
Your cleaning includes a professional polish which gives you a bright shiny smile.
The shade of your teeth naturally changes over the years. Stains and discoloration also build up contributing to a smile that may not be as bright and healthy looking as you want. Professional teeth whitening is the fastest most effective way to a truly brighter smile. If you have ever tried an over-the-counter whitening solution only to see little improvement, it is time to consider the benefits of professional whitening.
-Professional quality whitening solutions are more powerful than what exists in stores.
-Professional application means the right amount of product is applied properly.
-Professional whitening means you see results with only one treatment instead of weeks of treatments with store products.
-Avoid stress by letting the professionals take care of this important medical treatment. -Chemicals used in the process can damage your teeth if not used properly.

They are an important part of your overall health. Stop putting off your visit to the dentist and wow everyone with your bright healthy smile for the holiday season.
