New Year’s Resolutions: Stop smoking and have whiter teeth
January is many things to many people, but more than anything it represents the opportunity to start fresh. Every year resolutions are made to improve upon ways of the past. Seeing the dentist isn’t a resolution many people think about, but having whiter teeth, on the other hand, is something many people do think about. Perhaps you’ve always wanted a beautiful, white smile or your teeth have turned yellow over time. No matter what your reason for wanting a brighter, whiter smile, you’re not alone.
Your tooth color can be affected by many regular habits. A few of them include:
- Drinking coffee, tea and red wine.
- Eating foods that cause stains (blueberries, tomato sauce and candy are example).
- Accumulation of plaque and tartar.
- Smoking tobacco.
Limiting your intake of food and beverages that cause stains is your best bet if you want whiter teeth. Regular teeth cleanings, at the dentist office, can also help decrease the accumulation of plaque and tartar. At home, teeth brushing and flossing will help you maintain a healthy smile. Overall, one of the most important steps you can take to getting whiter teeth is the elimination of tobacco usage. Smoking isn’t just bad for your health, but it creates long-lasting stains on your teeth.
To become “smoke-free” is also one of the most difficult resolutions to keep. Perhaps, you just need a little bit more incentive.
For this reason, our dentist office is offering you a deal! If you can stop smoking for 3 months (yes, the dental hygienist will be able to tell) then we will give you free, custom bleach trays for your teeth and you get to take them home with you for multiple uses! This is a $340 dollar value that we would be willing to simply give to you.
Want whiter teeth? Want to stop smoking? Now you have a little incentive to stop smoking and get whiter teeth! It’s a win-win.
