The holiday season can be a brutally busy time. You’re planning events, shopping for gifts, preparing elaborate meals, and welcoming family and friends into your home. Throughout these winter months, you’re also trying to put your best face forward. Even with all the craziness and activities, you want to look great in special photos and while spending time with folks you haven’t seen since the last holiday season.

It can be tough to find time to put into your appearance when you’re scrambling to get all this extra work done. The best step to take is to give some aspects a boost prior to the season’s start. Whitening your smile is a simple but incredibly effective way to brighten and enhance your face and your presence.

Professional Teeth Whitening

There are different routes you can take when whitening your teeth; with the holiday season approaching at a fast clip, our Schenectady staff recommends in-office whitening. Only professional whitening will whiten your teeth by several shades in a single day. During in-office whitening, we will apply hydrogen peroxide gel to your teeth and allow it to take effect. Your teeth will be whiter by the time you leave our office, and the results will last for months to come.

Maintaining Whitening Results

You’ll be able to perform whitening upkeep with a home whitening kit. We will provide you with a product recommendation, as well as custom whitening trays. These trays will be made to fit your teeth so that you are able to whiten comfortably. There are other steps you can take to ensure that your whitening results last, including:

  • Avoid staining liquids
  • Rinse with water after eating or drinking dark foods/liquids
  • Brush and floss properly and frequently to remove external stains
  • Don’t smoke or use other types of tobacco

With teeth whitening, you’ll sail through the holiday season with a gorgeous smile and a great attitude. Get in touch with our Schenectady practice to learn more or schedule a whitening appointment!
