Smile With White, Bright Teeth This Holiday Season

Smile With White, Bright Teeth This Holiday Season

As you head into November, you realize that the holidays are coming up, and you’re looking forward to spending some time with family and friends. Since there's sure to be plenty of smiles and laughs, why not take this opportunity to flash some dazzling pearly whites this holiday season?

Each year in the United States, more than 35 million people turn to teeth whitening to give their smile a big boost — and we can do the same for you.

Here at Hillsdale Dental Care, our team, including Dr. Roge Jacob and Dr. Magdalena Azzarelli, takes great pride in providing optimal dental care to our clients, which includes aesthetic services like teeth whitening. Quite simply, this quick-and-easy treatment is one of the most economical ways to rejuvenate your appearance by making your smile shine bright.

So, if you’ve got a busy schedule over the holidays, why not take an hour now to ensure that you have something to smile about all season long.

Behind those dull teeth

Dullness and yellowing of the teeth happens gradually, and you might not even be aware of the cumulative effect. There are several reasons why teeth don’t shine as bright as the years go on, starting with the natural wearing down of your enamel. As this protective covering thins, more of the darker dentin inside your teeth can show through, which is what leads to yellowish teeth.

As well, with each cup of coffee or other staining food or beverage, your teeth can become more discolored.

Before you know it, those pearly whites that you used to have are no longer bright and look downright dull.

Getting back to white

In just one visit to our office, we can whiten your teeth by several shades thanks to our Opalescence™ Boost™ whitening system. 


This system doesn’t rely on lights to get the work done, as the materials are chemically activated. When you come in, you relax in the chair while we wash and dry your teeth to prepare them. Then, we insert a guard that protects the soft tissues in your mouth, such as your gums.

Once you’re ready, we apply a professional-grade whitening gel to each of your teeth and then let the gel go to work. After 20 minutes, we remove the gel, and then we apply another coat, if necessary. In fact, we can do 1-3 rounds of the whitening gel, depending on your whitening goals.

Once we’re finished, you walk out with teeth that are much whiter and brighter than when you arrived.

If you’d prefer a less abrupt road to whitening, we also offer the Opalescence Boost system as a take-home kit. Using trays and a bleaching agent, you can whiten your teeth more slowly — over the course of two weeks, in most cases. You need to wear the trays for a specified amount of time each day.

Whatever road you choose, you’re sure to be pleased with the outcome — pearly whites that will shine as bright as the holiday season.

To schedule your pre-holiday teeth whitening, please contact our office in San Jose, California, to set up an appointment.
