How to avoid a Dental Nightmare Before Christmas

It only seems like yesterday that we were basking in the sunshine and revelling in unexpected football-related joy, but Christmas is creeping up at a rate of knots. In just a few weeks, many of us will be looking forward to taking time off and spending it with loved ones. Christmas is the most wonderful time of year, but what happens if dental nightmares spoil your plans? The last thing anybody wants is to be nursing toothache or painful gums instead of enjoying a festive feast. If you’re keen to keep your smile in check this winter, here are some tips:

Brushing and flossing

Good oral hygiene is the best weapon against unwanted dental issues, so make sure you set aside 2 minutes every morning and evening to brush and a few minutes to floss each day. Brushing and flossing remove bacteria and bits of food, which helps to prevent the formation of plaque. Plaque is the most common cause of gum disease and decay. A good daily oral hygiene routine will also help to prevent bad breath and keep your smile sparkling.

Book a dental check

If you haven’t been to the dentist in the last 6-9 months, now is the perfect time to call and book an appointment. Dental checks take a few minutes, they’re completely painless, and a trip to the dentist could enable you to enjoy Christmas without any worries about troublesome teeth.

Watch what you eat

Christmas is a time of indulgence. While it’s brilliant to stuff yourself with festive treats, spare a thought for your poor teeth. Nobody is saying that you can’t enjoy yourself at Christmas, but try and limit the damage to your smile by avoiding fizzy drinks, sticking to main meals, rather than grazing, and keeping an eye on how much sugar you consume.

How Dental Veneers Can Provide a New Smile in Time for Christmas

Is a brand new smile top of your Christmas list? If so, we have just the solution for you! With our incredible veneers, we could make your dreams come true just in time for the big day.

Our veneers

We offer two types of Dental veneer treatment: composite veneers and Lumineers. Lumineers are made from a patented form of porcelain known as Cerinate. Lumineers are very thin and they are famed for creating beautifully natural results. Composite veneers are cheaper than porcelain veneers and the treatment process is simpler and quicker, as the veneers can be bonded directly onto the tooth surface.

Veneers are an excellent option for patients who want to transform the look of their smile. These ultra-light, wafer-thin shells give the smile a whole new look and they can be used to provide a solution for all kinds of imperfections, including staining, gaps between the teeth, crooked teeth and uneven and chipped teeth. In just a couple of sessions, we can give you a perfect smile ready to show off at Christmas time.

If you like the sound of veneers and you’re keen to find out more, why not call and book a consultation? We can have a look at your teeth, discuss the treatment options with you, answer any questions you have and give you more information about costs, timeframes and the processes involved.

Five things to Keep in Mind This Christmas for Healthy Teeth

Christmas is the most wonderful time of year for many of us, but it can be a particularly difficult time for your teeth and gums. If you’re keen to keep your smile in check this festive period, here are 5 things to bear in mind:

  1. Brushing: late nights and parties may mess up your daily routine, but don’t let this affect your oral hygiene regime. It may be tempting to fall into bed after a night on the tiles, but don’t neglect your teeth. Brushing is incredibly important, as it helps to prevent the formation of plaque. Plaque is the main risk factor for decay and gum disease.
  2. Dental checks: if you haven’t been to the dentist for a long time, there’s no better time to call and make an appointment. Regular dental checks are important because they enable your dentist to identify any potential warning signs. If there are developing issues, they can be addressed before they cause major problems.
  3. Drinking: it’s party season, and while many of us are aware that drinking too much can give us a headache, you may not necessarily be aware of the dental dangers. Many alcoholic drinks are laden with sugar and they’re also acidic. Drinking too much won’t just give you a hangover. It could also increase your risk of developing cavities and sensitivity.
  4. Snacking: many of us are guilty of grazing during the Christmas festivities. We all know that sugar is bad for your teeth, but it’s not just about how much sugar you consume. When you eat is also really important. If you graze all the time, this means that your teeth are under constant attack, as bacteria produce acids, which weaken the enamel when you eat. Try and stick to main meals if you can.
  5. Flossing: brushing is essential for healthy teeth and gums, but you can’t clean the entire mouth with a toothbrush. Flossing enables you to clean between the teeth, reducing the risk of oral diseases and giving your smile a healthy glow.
