Is your smile ready for the upcoming holidays? October is already here, and Halloween is just the beginning of the fun fall season and socializing. While you already know that a healthy smile depends on taking good care of your teeth and gums every day combined with periodic professional dental cleanings, our dentists, Dr. Harvey and Dr. Choy are pleased to offer whitening treatments that dissolve built-up stains and discoloration on your pearly whites.

At Don Harvey Dental in Alpharetta, Georgia, we offer in-office whitening treatments that are custom made for your smile and can lighten your teeth in as little as a one hour visit while you relax. Our dentist will evaluate your teeth using a shade guide to determine how much whitening you need. After the treatment, you will also receive take-home custom whitening trays to refresh your shade once a month.

You may wonder why your teeth lose their brightness even when you take excellent care of them on a daily basis, and have professional teeth cleanings. Aging is just one factor that affects tooth whiteness over time, but the foods you habitually eat (or drink) can affect your teeth as well. If you regularly enjoy tea and coffee, tomato sauce and berries, these can stain healthy teeth over time. If you smoke or chew tobacco, or take over-the-counter or prescription drugs like antihistamines, antipsychotics or high blood pressure medications, any of these can affect your tooth enamel’s whiteness.

If your smile needs a boost for the holidays, please give us a call at 770-343-6565 to schedule a teeth-whitening consultation. Dr. Harvey and Dr. Choy at Don Harvey Dental in Alpharetta, Georgia are happy to discuss your smile options so that you can dazzle during the upcoming holidays!
