The holiday party season doesn’t start until the beginning of December, but between the Thanksgiving turkey, Christmas cookies, and New Year’s champagne, you may already be feeling the effects of too much sugar on your teeth and gums. Luckily, there are several steps you can take right now to ensure your teeth look their best before you have to show them off at that big holiday party this weekend. Here are seven ways to get a picture-perfect smile before the holiday party season.

1) Teeth Cleaning San Diego

A professional teeth cleaning will freshen your breath and make your teeth look brighter. It’s also a great idea if you’re looking for a little pick-me-up before a holiday party. Especially if you tend to get a lot of buildup or stains on your teeth between your typical six-month checkups. Altrock Fabb Dental still has limited openings for routine checkups between now and the end of the year. Be sure to schedule now, before your insurance benefits reset on January first.

2) Teeth Whitening San Diego

The benefits of teeth whitening in San Diego are priceless. You’ll look great whenever it’s time to pose for a smile or want to laugh around your colleagues and loved ones. A bright smile brings about a sense of pride and self-confidence, so you’ll feel more comfortable in your own skin no matter where you are. Professional whitening erases years of dental stain, making you look more youthful in just one trip to our San Diego dental office.

3) Dental Veneers

A same-day composite dental veneer is a cosmetic treatment that can be completed in a single appointment. This option is helpful because you’ll get an immediate smile makeover without any extra steps required. Same-day veneers are best if you have one or two teeth in question. Like traditional porcelain veneers, composite veneers make your treated teeth look whiter, straighter, and properly shaped.

4) Cosmetic Bonding

Cosmetic bonding is a dental procedure used to cover minor to moderate cosmetic flaws in your most noticeable teeth. Our San Diego cosmetic dentist cleans and smooths the tooth and then applies composite resin material over it, shaping it to recreate a healthy, attractive tooth surface.

Cosmetic bonding is perfect for people who want their teeth to look nicer but don’t need more extreme treatments like porcelain veneers or Invisalign. And best of all, numbing is rarely needed because of how minimally invasive the bonding process is. You can be in and out of our San Diego practice in about an hour.

5) Tooth Recontouring

If you’re looking for an aesthetic enhancement and would like your teeth to look straighter, tooth recontouring may be the right option for you. Tooth recontouring is accomplished through a process where we gently remove very small amounts of tooth enamel to make your teeth look even and smooth. This technique can also be used in conjunction with other cosmetic dentistry procedures such as bonding, whitening, or veneers.

6) White Fillings

If you need to replace old metal fillings and want to look your best for holiday parties, cosmetic white fillings are an excellent option. They are made of tooth-colored resin that blends beautifully with your teeth, and they last just as long as metal fillings. With white fillings, you can look just like you did without a single filling in sight. Each one is specifically matched to the color of your adjacent tooth enamel.

7) Gum Recontouring

Gum recontouring is one of many services offered by our cosmetic dentist in San Diego. Patients who have uneven gum levels or “gummy smiles” may want to have their gumlines adjusted so that their teeth look more symmetrical and naturally attractive.
