The holidays are a time for socializing. Family gatherings, company parties, and other holiday events not only call for you to be around other people, but to be in your best spirits. It can be difficult to smile when you are not happy with the appearance of your teeth, which is why it’s important to get your teeth clean and healthy in the months leading up to the holidays, so you can spend the holiday season being confident about your smile. Your Irvine cosmetic dentist can help you achieve a brighter, whiter, more brilliant smile.

If you are currently unhappy with your smile, due to discoloration of your teeth, then you may consider undergoing a whitening procedure. There are a couple ways you can do this, either with the ZOOM whitening system, which gives immediate results, or the more subtle method of using a gel and tray system.

With the ZOOM whitening system, your teeth can be lightened up to eight shades in approximately an hour. Your Irvine cosmetic dentist recommends the ZOOM whitening system as a quick, safe, and effective way to see fast results. The ZOOM system works by applying a powerful whitening solution to your teeth, which is activated by a blue light. If you are impatient and want to see results immediately, the ZOOM system may be the best option for you.

If you want to take things a little slower, then using a professional gel and tray system is the best method, as it slowly whitens teeth, over time. Customized whitening trays are molded to fit your teeth, and the whitening solution fills the trays in the areas around and between each tooth.

The holidays are stressful enough on their own, without having to worry about the impression you will make with your smile. Your Irvine cosmetic dentist can help you achieve a more brilliant smile that you will be happy and proud to flash to your family, friends, and coworkers at all the parties and get-togethers you will be attending this holiday season.
