The holidays are sneaking up on us this year. At LIFESmiles Famly & Cosmetic Dentistry, your experienced Boise, ID dentist office, we are here to help you prepare your smile for the busiest time of year. Learn more about how you can smile brighter this holiday season below:
Beware of Tooth-Staining Holiday Snacks
Many people look forward to this time of year because they get to enjoy all of their favorite holiday snacks and beverages. Unfortunately, many holiday favorites are notorious for leaving behind staining agents on your dental structures. Some holiday favorites that may stain your teeth include red wine, cranberry sauce, hot cocoa, or fruit-flavored pies. We recommend enjoying these foods and beverages in moderation and following them up with a thorough brushing and flossing session to ensure no residue is left behind on your smile. The longer the staining agents are allowed to remain on your smile, the more likely they will leave behind a stain or discoloration.
Consider Cosmetic Dentistry
Not looking forward to skipping out on some of your favorite holiday snacks? We understand.
Want to look your best for upcoming holiday gatherings? We can help with that too!
Our cosmetic dentistry services were designed to help you achieve a smile that you can feel confident about showing off. Whether you want to plan a tooth whitening appointment to brighten your smile following the holidays or you want to go ahead and have your teeth professionally whitened now before the holidays arrive, we invite you to schedule an appointment online.
Professional teeth whitening is a cost-effective, safe way to brighten your smile by multiple shades. At LIFESmiles Family & Cosmetic Dentistry, we offer a full range of professional teeth whitening treatments to help patients achieve a whiter smile. We offer GLO professional teeth whitening as our preferred method of teeth whitening treatment. We also offer both in-office and at-home teeth whitening treatments. This means that if you do not have time in your schedule right now to sit in the dental chair, we can provide you with professional teeth-whitening solutions that you can do from the comfort of your home.
Remember To Use Your Insurance Benefits
Our office would like to remind our patients to utilize their dental insurance benefits before the year is over. With the holiday season, many patients forget about their hard-earned benefits and are unable to use them once the new year arrives. At LIFESmiles, we work hard to provide affordable and accessible dental care in Boise, Idaho. Both Dr. Garpetti and Dr. Hyder are in-network with these insurances: Blue Cross, Delta Dental, Pacific Source, Ameritas, and Regents Blue Cross Blue Shield.
If you have any questions regarding your financial options or you to schedule an appointment, call LIFESmiles Family & Cosmetic Dentistry. We look forward to helping you achieve a healthy, beautiful smile.
