Say, "cheese!"

Ah, the holidays! Gatherings of family and friends. Pictures are sure to be taken to commemorate the occasion. And if you are ashamed of your smile, it's hard to smile. But there are many over the counter products that you can purchase to brighten and whiten your smile. Both Crest and Oral-B have over the counter whitening strips that will make your teeth whiter in a short time.

Many make over programs are suggesting that you put the strips on while you are getting ready for work, a date or a party. If you pick them up soon, your smile will rival any that shine on the red carpet at the Academy Awards.

Cosmetic dentistry, like caps and whitening are not usually covered by your insurance company. However, if the procedure will save your teeth, your insurance will eventually approve the procedure as long as your dentist is diligent in presenting your case.

If you do not have dental insurance coverage, you could end up spending thousands of dollars out of pocket to keep your smile healthy. Also, if you have a budding family, the attention that you give to your children's teeth now will save them costly procedures in their adulthood.

Taking care of your teeth is a habit that you can encourage as part of your child's daily morning and night time rituals. Providing dental insurance for your family will not cost as much as procedures that you may need, like braces, root canals and crowns.
