Meanwhile, let’s explore some ways that you can get your smile ready for the holidays. In this post, we reveal four general dentistry treatments that can take your smile from naughty to nice in a single appointment.

A Routine Dental Exam and Cleaning

Did you know that the American Dental Association (ADA) officially recommends seeing your dentist at least twice a year for routine exams and cleanings? These comprehensive appointments help patients maintain optimal oral health by:

  • Examining the teeth, mouth, face, head, and neck for abnormalities
  • Gathering x-ray images of underlying oral structures
  • Conducting oral cancer screenings
  • Removing accumulated plaque around the gum line
  • Remineralizing teeth with fluoride treatments

Not only do these routine appointments keep smiles healthy and functional, but they also restore teeth’s natural brilliance. And who doesn’t want a dazzling smile just in time for holiday photos, parties, and more?

Dental Sealants

Are sweet treats one of your favorite things about the holidays? If so, then you may be more likely to ring in the New Year with a cavity or two. But, this year, you may not have to deny your Santa-sized sweet tooth.

With the help of dental sealants, you can indulge in all of your festive favorites. These treatments fill in natural crevices or pits in the teeth, which prevents cavity-causing bacteria from invading compromised teeth. As a result, you can keep your smile healthy and beautiful all year round, especially during the holidays.

Same-day Crowns

This year, don’t let missing or injured teeth keep you from spreading joy. Instead, get same-day crowns to complete your smile. 

These advanced dental restorations use CEREC (chairside economical restoration of esthetic ceramic) technology to help patients seamlessly restore their smiles. In just a single appointment, patients can complete their smiles, improve their oral function, and boost their confidence–just in time for the family Christmas card, too!

In-office Teeth Whitening

Want to dramatically brighten your smile in just 20 minutes? In-office teeth whitening treatments with our Naperville dentists can help you get a smile that gives the North Star a run for its money.

Our team exclusively uses Opalescence™ Boost™ for in-office whitening treatments. These treatments deliver stunning results in a fraction of the time of at-home whiteners. 

Additionally, Opalescence Boost helps strengthen and protect teeth with added potassium nitrate and fluoride. Together, these ingredients prevent cavities and post-whitening tooth sensitivity, giving you a healthier smile that you can enjoy for holidays to come!
