With the holidays off and running as we count down to Halloween, is your smile ready? Halloween gets the ball rolling with the rest of the holidays ready to follow suit, and we want to make sure your teeth are in their best shape yet. Dr. Michael Scholes is pleased to offer whitening treatments that dissolve built-up stains and discoloration on your pearly whites.

At Scholes Family Dental in Couer d'Alene, Idaho, our whitening treatments for your smile can help restore your pearly whites to a healthy luster. Touchups by our dentist may be needed every several years when receiving whitening treatment and we are happy to perform those services for you. Our whitening treatment is a non-invasive process which is idealĀ for enhancing your beautiful smile.

You may be wondering just why your teeth lose their brightness even when you take excellent care of them on a daily basis, and stay current on your professional teeth cleanings. Well, 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 with 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.

So, if your smile needs a pick-me-up for the upcoming holiday season, please give our Scholes Family Dental team a call at 208-667-1578 to schedule a consultation. Dr. Michael Scholes and the rest of our team in Couer d'Alene, Idaho are happy to help you find the right teeth whitening option for your dazzling smile!
