I Just Got Engaged, Now What?
Posted November 15, 2017 in Uncategorized
Congratulations! You just got engaged and you are going to marry that special someone! When thinking of planning a wedding their are many things that come to mind, but have you thought of giving your dentist a call?
Looking your best on your big day is more that just finding the perfect dress, it’s a feeling. When you feel your best, you look your best. Before your schedule becomes packed with cake tastings, venue visits, and honeymoon planning, make sure you make an appointment with your dentist.
Getting That Picture-Perfect Smile
You want the perfect smile for your wedding day, and if you start early, you can achieve that! If your teeth are not aligned correctly or just don’t look as good as you want, ask your dentist about Invisalign and Veneers.
Invisalign is the clear alternative to braces and it will straighten your smile without the hassle of metal brackets or brace face. Invisalign uses a series of clear trays to re-align your smile. With new technological advances, Invisalign is now able to correct a majority of cases from mild up to complex with the new SmartTrack technology. If you want you teeth straighten with Invisalign, but only have a few months before your wedding, ask your Dentist if Propel is right for you. Propel safely speeds up your treatment time 50% faster and goes hand-in-hand with Invisalign.
If your teeth are aligned properly, but you don’t like the shape or size of your teeth, veneers can be placed on top of your teeth to give you a more appealing and stunning smile. Veneers can also be used to cover stained teeth that won’t respond to teeth whitening treatment.
What Are My Whitening Options?
A wedding party must, is teeth whitening. Depending on your time limitations, their are a couple different options for whitening.
In-office whitening, using EZ-White technology, will whiten your teeth up to 8 shades lighter at a 1-hour visit. Many patients who come for in-office whitening with EZ-White experience little to no sensitivity during and after the treatment.
Custom Take Home Whitening Trays
Another option you have is custom whitening trays that you take home to use. Custom whitening trays are made by your dentist at a quick visit and can be used for multiple at-home whitening applications. The trays are filled with whitening gel and will give you a whiter smile in 5-7 days.
Over-The-Counter Whitening Strips
The final option for teeth whitening is over the counter whitening strips. These strips can be as effective as the take home whitening trays, but since they are not a custom fit, some people find that they have discomfort. This is also not the healthiest long term option, since it can damage your gums.
