shutterstock_225764941With Labor Day in the rearview mirror and Halloween only a few weeks away, it’s time to start getting ready for the holiday season. If you are looking for ways to look your best through holiday parties and family gatherings, cosmetic dentistry can make your smile look its best throughout the season. Several options are available with varying treatment times to suit your schedule and needs.

Invisalign

If your teeth are crooked or you have spaces where they shouldn’t be, ask your dentist about Invisalign. You will be fitted with a set of clear aligner trays that fit perfectly over your teeth and move them, little by little. You will receive new trays every two weeks as your teeth shift, with your trays adjusted to match the current placement of your teeth. Invisalign works properly when the trays are worn for 22 hours per day. Since they are removable, you will not face the same dietary or hygiene restrictions with traditional orthodontia: you will be able to properly brush and floss your teeth, as well as remove your trays when you eat. No one will be able to tell that you are undergoing treatment! While traditional braces tend to have a treatment time of two years, Invisalign performed using the Berik Acceleration Method can be completed in a fraction of the time. With Dr. Berik’s accelerated Invisalign you replace the trays every 5 days versus two weeks. By doing so your treatment can be completed in as little as 3 months. If you start Invisalign treatment now, you could have a brand new smile by New Year’s!

Zoom! Teeth Whitening

Having your teeth professionally whitened is the most efficient way to brighten your smile. Done is as little as an hour, Zoom! Teeth Whitening requires no downtime and can be completed during your lunch break. After picking out a shade to make the transition seem natural, a mouthguard is put into place to protect your cheeks and tongue from the process and a gel is applied to your teeth. A light designed to activate the gel will be shone through your mouth, breaking down stains on the surface of each tooth. This will not damage any of your existing enamel or affect the structure of your teeth. You will only need to avoid drinks that could stain your teeth, such as coffee or red wine, for the first 24 hours after your procedure is done.
