JUNE 2019

A Moment Captured in Time


I see many patients who are getting ready for one of the biggest days of their lives: their wedding. Brides and grooms, bridesmaids and groomsmen, parents, and guests all want to look their absolute best on this big day. These days, many couples have a checklist of what they want to accomplish before their wedding day. These are goals like losing weight, getting into shape, getting new contact lenses (or even laser eye surgery), improving skin tone, and so on. But often at the very top of these lists are teeth whitening and improving their smile. This is on top of all the wedding planning! Summer is wedding season, and we’re seeing more people interested in the many options we have to help them look their best. The most common treatment option is in-office teeth whitening. While at-home options are great, they can’t match the effectiveness of in-office whitening treatments. The goal is not only to whiten and brighten teeth by a few shades (or several, depending on the circumstances), but also to eliminate stains or other forms of discoloration caused by foods, beverages, or smoking. There are some instances when teeth whitening might not be enough, or it might not be the only option for a patient. For the most severe discoloration or other dental issues, such as chipping, a patient may choose veneers. Veneers offer a high amount of flexibility. If two teeth are discolored or chipped, all you need are two veneers. Or a patient may choose veneers across all the front-facing teeth. It all comes down to the look they desire to create. Some people do ask for more extensive work to prepare for their wedding. Not only do they wish to whiten their smile, but they also want to fix uneven or misaligned teeth. As a result, they may opt for cosmetic recontouring. Everyone has different needs, and everyone has their vision of how they want their smile to look. They want to look their best for their new spouse and for all of their guests. But they also want to look their best for the wedding photos. Every photo is a moment captured in time. These are photos that may be framed and

placed on the wall of the home, shared on social media, and cherished in family albums for years to come.

And it’s not only couples and members of the wedding party who are thinking about teeth whitening, veneers, or cosmetic recontouring. These options are available to anyone who wants to make a change and improve their smile. There are countless reasons to improve your smile, but there’s really only one that’s truly important — how you feel! Whether you are getting married or you simply want to look your best “just because,” the best reason to improve your smile is because it makes you happy. And, really, that’s the best reason to do anything!
