Keeping Your Teeth Bright for the Holidays

With all of those family gatherings, get-togethers, and holiday celebrations, the winter months are nothing if not busy. This means pictures, conversation, and lots of smiling and laughter. If you want your teeth to be ready for all of the photo-ops and mingling in store, consider these simple suggestions from our dentist office in Mundelein to keep your smile sparkling.

1. Use a Straw

Although its recommended to avoid dark liquids altogether, we know that’s not entirely possible. When drinking coffee, soda, juice, or wine, try to use a straw instead of sipping right out of the cup. This will help minimize staining and direct contact. If you want to go the extra mile, rinse your mouth after you’re done.

2. Fruits & Veggies

In addition to the many other benefits of eating a healthy diet of fruits and vegetables, they’re also great for your teeth. Often rich in vitamin C, they trigger the production of extra saliva which helps get rid of excess food that may dampen your smile and keeps your mouth clean.

3. Whitening Products

Whitening products like toothpaste, strips, and trays are a sure-fire way to attack some of those pesky surface stains. Use them together for the best overall result, but make sure you don’t overdo the whitening trays!


Taking care of your smile is one of the best gifts you can give to yourself. However, if these tips aren’t doing the trick, contact your dentist office in Mundelein to schedule an appointment for your next professional whitening session.
