Give the gift of a great smile
Every year, when it comes time to buying holiday gifts for your friends and family, don’t you always have that one special someone that is impossible to buy for? No matter what you do, you either can’t think of a gift or you worry that the person will return it or not like it. This year, it’s time to think outside of the box and consider getting someone you love a teeth-whitening treatment. Who wouldn’t want a great smile this holiday season!
One of the hottest trends in dental care and cosmetic dentistry has been in the area of teeth whitening. If you (or someone you love) have a problem with discolored teeth, these treatments can help. Tooth discoloration can be caused by a number of things including smoking, poor dental hygiene, and even drinking too much coffee or wine. These habits often leave the tooth looking yellow or, even worse, brown. This type of damage, however, goes beyond the physical. It can also make you feel less confident, older and unattractive to others.
The treatment involves bleaching the teeth, usually either with carbamide peroxide or hydrogen peroxide. These bleaches can break up the heavy discoloration and make the different shades less concentrated and thus less noticeable.
Tooth whitening can dramatically change the color of your teeth, making them up to eight shades whiter than they previously were. While many people are familiar with tooth-whitening systems for the home, there are professional treatments that can only be done in a dental office. Either one would be a great gift for someone on your holiday list who is hard to buy for. (Or, you could always treat yourself to teeth whitening. After all, you deserve to look your best too!)
