Having a healthy and beautiful smile during the holidays can be quite convenient, especially because you don’t have to stress about cavities and other dental issues and you also have the stunning white smile you need that can give you the appearance you desire. To help you achieve your Thanksgiving smile goals in Eagle River, Alaska, our dentist, Dr. Michael Sanders, is happy to give you the tips you need, which are:

-Visit our dental office if you’re due for your next dental cleaning and exam. This appointment can improve your oral health by thoroughly cleaning your teeth and gums, nourishing your tooth enamel, and fixing any dental issues you might suffer from. It also removes some surface stains from your teeth so you can have a more attractive smile.

-Avoid acidic and sugary foods and drinks. Acid and sugar are substances that can harm the teeth in many ways. Acid attacks and weakens the tooth enamel and sugar encourages tooth decay. You can avoid cavities, tooth sensitivity, and tooth pain by avoiding sugary and acidic products on Thanksgiving.

-Take advantage of teeth whitening. Teeth whitening can help you have a whiter smile, no matter which whitening treatment you use (although, some treatments will whiten your teeth brighter than others). For little brightness, use an over-the-counter treatment you can purchase at the store. For more brightness, ask our dentist about our professional whitening treatment.

For more information and details about how to have a top-notch Thanksgiving smile, please contact our dental team. All you need to do is reach out to Eagle Summit Dental Group by calling 907-694-8234. We look forward to giving you the answers and help you need!
