Treat Yourself to a New Smile This Holiday Season

December 2, 2020

The holiday season is upon us once again! With the many challenges that 2020 has brought, it feels like the right time to do a little something to treat ourselves. Many are also looking for ways to use up remaining HSA or FSA funds. If you fall into that category, here are a few gifts you might consider giving yourself before the year is over.

Clear Aligners

Clear aligners are an inconspicuous way to straighten your teeth. According to the American Association of Orthodontists, clear aligners are clear, plastic-like trays that are virtually invisible. Many patients like that clear aligners can also be removed for short periods of time. However, it is vital that clear aligners remain in the mouth as much as possible so they can do their job of straightening your teeth.

Whitening

Whitening can bring the brightness back to your teeth. MouthHealthy.org, an ADA website, tells us that teeth can discolor over time for a variety of reasons, such as diet, trauma, certain medications and age. Whitening gels work to remove both surface and deep stains on teeth. The results can last a long time, though touch up treatments are available if needed.

Veneers

Dental veneers are thin shells of porcelain or composite resin that are custom made to fit over teeth. They can be used to fix chipped, stained, misaligned, worn down, uneven or abnormally spaced teeth. Medical News Today explains that veneers may be beneficial for those who want a long-term solution to persistent cosmetic concerns and haven’t responded well to other dental treatments, such as teeth whitening, braces, or retainers.

If you’re interested in clear aligners, whitening or dental veneers, contact us for a consultation, and get ready to ring in the new year with a new smile!
