Whiten and Brighten Your Teeth Before the Holidays

When you’re mapping out a plan to check off everything on your holiday to-do list this year, add “professional teeth whitenin

Like most of us, you want to look your best during the holiday season. You buy new outfits to wear to parties and for family portrait sessions. You schedule hair appointments and facials. 

But, what about your smile? Professional teeth whitening can boost the color of your teeth from dull to dazzling, so your picture-perfect style looks even more put together with a beautiful white smile. 

Here at the Butte, Montana, dental practice of Robert F. Wilcox, DMD, we can help you polish those pearly whites before the holiday season is in full swing. With a professional Zoom! in-office whitening treatment, you can get a more beautiful smile in less time than it takes to bake a few dozen cookies for the office Christmas party. 

In just a couple of hours, you can have teeth that are up to eight shades brighter this holiday season. 

Whiter teeth can help you look younger

Most people don’t find yellow teeth attractive. Years of drinking coffee, dark-colored sodas, and red wine can leave your teeth looking dull. And if you smoke, you’ve exacerbated the problem. 

For many adults, yellow teeth are part of the natural aging process in which your enamel becomes thinner and more transparent allowing the inner part of your tooth — the dentin — to show through. Dentin has a naturally yellow tint, which, in combination with coffee, tea, and red wine stains, makes your teeth look yellow. 

However, just because you’re getting older doesn’t mean you have to look your age. Teeth whitening brightens your teeth by removing surface stains from the enamel and helping you look younger again. Looking as young as you feel is a good thing any time of year, but especially during the holidays when you spend time with family and friends whom perhaps you only see once or twice a year. 

Whiter teeth are easier than you think

We offer the Zoom! In-office whitening treatment as well as take-home kits, so you can whiten your teeth at your convenience. 

Zoom! in-office

With in-office treatments, you can get a more dazzling smile in just a few hours, start to finish. At your appointment, we insert upper and lower dental trays filled with the Zoom! professional bleaching solution, which is a hydrogen peroxide whitening gel. We cover your gums and lips to protect this sensitive tissue from any irritation, then shine a bright light on your teeth for three 15-minute intervals. 

You sit back, relax, and take a break from your holiday to-do list while you get a whiter, more beautiful smile. When you leave our dental office, you’re ready for the next holiday party, an upcoming photo session, or a selfie in front of the Christmas tree. 

Zoom! at home

Need to multitask while you whiten your teeth? Zoom! take-home treatments are perfect for that. It takes a couple of weeks to achieve your desired level of white, but you can wear your bleaching trays while you wrap gifts, while you sleep, or even when you’re running to the grocery store for that last-minute ingredient to bake your favorite holiday gingerbread cake. 

When you’re mapping out a plan to check off everything on your holiday to-do list this year, add “professional teeth whitening at Dr. Wilcox’s office” to your must-haves. Then, give us a call at 406-851-9375 to schedule your teeth whitening appointment, or book online anytime.
