It’s that time of year again: a new beginning to reinvigorate your health and happiness. A feature that never fails to fall off either list: your smile!

A smile communicates a thousand words on its own, and a healthy smile boosts self-esteem, creating brighter, better lived days.

When it comes to achieving your most beautiful smile, teeth whitening is only half the job. Preventative care is so important to keep your smile white and your mouth healthy. Avoiding foods and beverages that stain and discolor your tooth enamel might not make your smile brighter today, but over time you’ll notice in what great shape it truly shines.

These beverages include wine, tea, coffee and carbonated drink. In addition to negatively impacting color health, these acidic drinks are generally bad for tooth and gum health. The New Year might be a good time to cut back- even if it’s just one less cup of coffee a day.

If you want to opt for a boost toward white teeth, we offer several cosmetic dentistry options. Amongst the most popular:


  • Zoom Whitening effectively combats the stains caused by stain-inducing beverages. The whitening process neutralizes discoloration and enriches the enamel’s texture. Some patients go through a number of treatments, including bleaching and fluoride mouth-guards for at home supplementary whitening. The results are incredible and achieved in a short time.


  • Porcelain Veneers are an incredible option for teeth with blemishes like stains or chips. The veneer is a thin shell of porcelain that matches the natural teeth and gets bonded to the enamel. What started in the 1920s as temporary smiles on set for the cinema has become a widely embraced opportunity for a new smile that lasts years and requires very little maintenance.
