Gift Ideas for that Hard-to-Buy-For Person
|December 5, 2018
When it comes to buying Christmas gifts with some creativity, you can’t get more creative than shopping at the dentist! Consider these gift options at Prosper Family Dentistry.
You’ve heard it before, and we’ll say it again. Electric toothbrushes truly do clean your teeth better than manual toothbrushes. Unfortunately, the best ones are also the most expensive. Many people fell Ike spending $120 on a toothbrush is an unnecessary extravagance.
While we could waste a few paragraphs convincing you that they are both necessary and economical (in saving you money on future dental expenses), we won’t do that here.
Ask anyone who uses an electric toothbrush how they feel when they have to use a manual toothbrush. They will tell you that it is hard to go back to a manual toothbrush because your teeth just do not feel as clean. The smooth, shiny feeling of your teeth left by an electric toothbrush cannot be achieved with a manual toothbrush.
Electric toothbrushes also have the advantage of more effectively polishing away dark staining, keeping your teeth whiter and brighter. An electric toothbrush is the perfect gift for the coffee or red wine lover in your life.
Another great gift for almost anyone is professional teeth whitening. On our new patient forms, we ask each patient this question: “If you could wave a magic wand and change your smile, what would you change?” Every single person writes down the word “WHITER”.
Everyone wants whiter teeth, and the fastest, most predictable way to get whiter teeth is with professional teeth whitening. Professional products are faster, more effective and less likely to make teeth sensitive. We offer three different options for teeth whitening, and there are TWO ways you can gift these.
These kits are a one-size-fits-all approach to teeth whitening. They consist of a flexible, generic fit tray that contains a high strength whitening gel. They are easy to apply and very safe to use.
Opalescence GO! kits are great gifts for pre-teens whose teen have not fully come in or patients who are in the middle of complicated dental work. They are made to grab and go at our office. You don’t need to make an appointment. Jut drop by during normal business hours! Melanie, Lorrie and Kadi can answer all of your questions about the GO! Kits and send you home with one item checked off your Christmas to-buy list!
They also make great stocking stuffers!
Opalescence GO! Kits are the only professional whitening option that do not require a dental appointment. Our other two options do, which is why we recommend buying a gift certificate for these. Then your loved one can make the necessary appointment according to their schedule!
The first, and most popular, option is custom-fitted whitening trays with professional strength gel. This teeth whitening option gives the gift recipient complete control over their whitening results. The professional gel works quickly and provides protection against teeth sensitivity. We offer several different concentrations of the whitening gel, which allows you to select the ones that meets your needs.
The custom-fitted trays will last for many years, allowing you to maintain your bright white smile. The close fit of the tray against your teeth helps conserve the whitening gel, making it last longer, too.
The second whitening option for which you can purchase a gift certificate is in-office whitening. This is a great gift for the busy person who wants white teeth but has no time. In-office whitening produces whitening results in a single 90-minute appointment.
If a beautiful, straight smile is on a loved one’s wish list, ask if he or she is interested in straightening teeth with clear aligner therapy. We can make minor corrections of mildly crowded teeth in just a few months with clear aligners. We can also use clear aligners to completely transform a smile!
Talk to Dr Jill and Dr. Cara if you think someone you love might have teeth straightening on his or her Christmas wish list.
