The holidays are almost upon us, and that can mean A LOT of photos. Make sure your smile is photo-ready with these tips!

Brush and Floss: The easiest way to whiten your smile is to improve your brushing and flossing habits. Brush twice a day, for 2 minutes each time. If you find it difficult to brush for a full two minutes, set a timer. Floss once a day for 2-3 minutes. Don’t forget the back teeth!

Professional Cleanings: Have you had a professional cleaning in the last few months? Professional cleanings keep your smile bright and healthy. It would be a good idea to schedule a cleaning at Monon Family Dental soon, in case any dental problems are discovered. Getting a cavity filled, or any other urgent dental procedure could put a wrench in your holiday plans.

Teeth Whitening: You already brush twice a day for 2 minutes. You have had your professional cleaning in the last 6 months. However, your teeth are still not as white as you want them to be! This can be frustrating. It may be time to choose a tooth whitening option. Tooth whitening can be done quickly at Monon Family Dental, with at-home whitening strips or bleach trays, or with whitening toothpaste. It all depends on how deep your stains are, and the time that you have available. Even after a whitening treatment, it is a good idea to continue using whitening toothpaste to keep your smile as white as possible.

Whatever your holiday smile needs are, we at Monon Family Dental are here to help! Call us at 317-810-9285 for an appointment in Indianapolis, Indiana. Dr. Zachary Allmand and our team look forward to seeing you!
