Dental Health During The Holidays

teeth whitening in newport news vaYour dental health is always important, but especially during the holidays. We want to remind our patients of some essential dental care information to keep in mind during the upcoming weeks. Learn more below:

Make Time For The Dentist

Scheduling regular preventative care appointments with your dentist is essential in maintaining the health and beauty of your smile. If it has been over six months since the last time you sat in the dental chair, go ahead and schedule your next appointment today. We want to ensure our patients come and visit us before their schedules get filled with holiday plans. Additionally, many patients will want to use their dental insurance benefits before the new year. It’s important to do so because you will not be able to utilize any unused benefits once the new year rolls around. At Harper Dental, we accept nearly all dental insurance plans and will submit the paperwork needed for you to receive reimbursement. We work closely with your insurance company to determine estimates of coverage amounts, including any out-of-pocket costs. Our office is able to submit your insurance claim for you, and in almost every case, your insurance company will pay us directly.

Brush & Floss

With holiday plans quickly filling up your calendar, we understand you have a lot on your plate. However, as your local dentist in Newport News VA, we want to remind you to take the time to care for your smile. Brush and floss at least twice a day. Your at-home oral hygiene routine is essential in preventing tooth decay buildup and gum disease development. We would hate to see many of our patients suffering from dental emergencies during the new year because they forgot to care for their dental health during the holiday season.

Consider Cosmetic Dentistry

We know the holidays will look a little different this year. However, we also know that you want to look your best for family photos, holiday dinners, or even a long-distance Zoom call. To feel your best this holiday season, we recommend scheduling a cosmetic dentistry consultation with Dr. Harper. This time of year, many patients enjoy taking advantage of our teeth whitening solutions to remove any discoloration from their smiles. Teeth whitening is possibly the easiest and most affordable way to transform your smile. Dr. Harper offers a variety of teeth whitening procedures to help you achieve a brighter, more youthful smile. Teeth whitening is often combined with other restorative and cosmetic dentistry procedures for a total smile makeover.

We hope you have a great holiday season. Please schedule an appointment with us online. We look forward to seeing you soon.
