Smile Makeover: Preparing For Your Wedding Day Or Special Event

Smile Makeover: Preparing For Your Wedding Day Or Special Event

In a recent poll conducted by Dear Doctor, a consumer dentistry magazine, 77 percent of engaged individuals said they had plans to visit their dentist prior to their wedding. For some people, this dental appointment is to have a scale and polish, but for a growing number, it means having some cosmetic dentistry treatments to transform their smile for their special day and the rest of their lives. Here are some options for smile makeovers before your long-waited big day.

Teeth Whitening

We offer at-home and in-office teeth whitening procedures. In-office bleaching usually requires only one office visit. During the procedure, we place a protective gel or a rubber shield over the gums to protect them. Then, we apply a bleaching agent containing carbamide peroxide to the teeth and use a specialized light to enhance the action of the whitening agent. We have found that this is the fastest way to achieve results.

On the other hand, at-home bleaching requires an impression of the teeth to make a customized mouth guard to keep the whitening gel against the teeth. The mouth guard is worn for a period of time, as instructed by our office. The amount of time you need to wear the tray may vary from a couple of hours a day or all night and as many as four weeks or longer.

Cosmetic Bonding

Composite bonding, also sometimes called dental or tooth bonding, treats minor tooth damage. With this treatment, the dentist uses a composite resin and carefully applies it to the teeth. They then use a special UV light to help the composite harden. This treatment can reshape teeth and make them appear more uniform. Composite bonding can usually be completed in one dental visit and is a fast and effective solution for minor cosmetic issues. Bonding is a non-invasive dental treatment that can transform your smile quickly. There are some limitations to what composite bonding can accomplish and we will help determine the best course of treatment for you.

Frequently Asked Questions About Smile Makeovers

How Long Do Smile Makeover Results Last?

The lifespan of a smile makeover depends on the type and quality of services received. For example, teeth whitening treatments usually last six months to two years, while veneers can last 10-15 years with proper care.

How Comfortable is a Smile Makeover?

Luckily, most cosmetic dentistry treatments involve little to no discomfort. Local anesthesia can often be used to ensure comfort during procedures. After the treatments, you may experience some mild discomfort or soreness, but this can typically be managed with over-the-counter pain relievers.
