While cool cartoon character toothbrushes and sparkly toothpastes can help get kids to brush their teeth, flossing can sometimes be a battle. Here are some ways to encourage your children to floss each day:
Floss as a family. When your kids see you floss you’re creating healthy oral hygiene habits.
Incentivi[z]e. Consider making a flossing chart. Every time your child flosses mark it on the chart with a sticker. At the end of the week, if they flossed each day, consider a reward of an extra story, a fun family outing, or a special meal.
Sing or tell stories. Think about making up a silly song about flossing or creating a story with a flossing superhero. Your kids will be so busy listening that they’ll forget that they’re flossing at the same time.

Spruce up Your Smile With Veneers
Dissatisfied with your smile due to chips, stains or other imperfections? Consider enhancing your smile with veneers. These thin new tooth surfaces are custom-made to fit your teeth and address your particular condition(s). They are bonded directly to the tooth surface to whiten or align teeth, close up spaces, repair chipped or damaged teeth, or cover tooth enamel that is worn from the aging process or from teeth grinding. Veneers have many benefits:
Natural appearance. We can match veneers to your natural tooth shade for a seamless appearance.
Durability. Because they’re made from strong material, veneers can offer an added level of protection to vulnerable, weakened teeth.
Long-lasting results. Your veneers may last for many years and, in some cases, a decade.
Simple to maintain. Just keep up your normal oral hygiene routine of brushing and flossing to maintain your restored teeth.
If you’d like to beam with confidence, consider veneers!
