Happy Holidays, from your friends at Highland Advanced Dental Care!

Over the next few weeks, you’ll be gathering with family, friends, and co-workers at seasonal parties, and we want you to look and feel your best. 

But time is limited if you’re not completely happy about your smile. 

So today, we’re sharing three easy ways to make your smile sparkle in Highland, MI!

#1 – Teeth Whitening Treatment

You’ll find all sorts of products in the oral care aisle of your nearest drugstore that all promise to whiten dull, discolored teeth. And you may think choosing one of them will be the cheapest, quickest way to get results in time for the upcoming holidays.

Unfortunately, nothing you’ll find on store shelves will ever outperform professional teeth whitening treatment. Our prescription-strength gel and customized mouth trays are just as convenient as consumer whitening products, but that’s where the similarities end.

Because our mouth trays are made especially for you, they’ll stay in place and prevent whitening gel from spilling out or slipping around and irritating your gums the way one-size-fits-all trays and strips will do. 

And even though your DIY kit from the drugstore can harm your gums and increase tooth sensitivity, the concentration of bleaching agents in those products aren’t actually enough to lighten your teeth. Only a dentist has access to that kind of whitening gel, which means you won’t be disappointed. 

In no time at all, our take-home system will make your smile sparkle and shine!

#2 – Replace Old Fillings

If you have dark spots in your mouth from past cavities, then chances are it’s time to replace some old silver fillings. 

It’s not that metal fillings don’t get the job done when it comes to treating tooth decay, but they did force patients to sacrifice their bright smiles for the sake of their oral health. 

Now, you can choose composite fillings that are made to match your surrounding teeth. These tooth-colored fillings make it impossible for those around you to see any evidence of past dental work. And you won’t have to worry about people seeing those embarrassing dark spots in your mouth when you smile or laugh.

#3 – Tooth Bonding

In just a single appointment, you can cover all sorts of small cosmetic problems in your smile. 

Small gaps, tiny chips or cracks, misshapen or worn teeth… all can be carefully concealed with a composite resin that’s poured over teeth and then artfully sculpted to make your smile look youthful, refreshed, and flawless. 

Bonding is a faster, more affordable cosmetic dentistry option than veneers, but you may want to consider that the results aren’t as lasting. You can discuss both procedures with Dr. LoCascio before you decide which is best for you.

Don’t wait until the New Year to make your smile brighter and more confident!
