Start On Your Beautiful Smile Before The Holidays [BLOG]
It may be too early to start thinking about the winter holidays when Halloween and Thanksgiving haven’t even arrived yet! Of course, you may be an early starter when it comes to buying holiday gifts. If so, we applaud your planning. Taking this approach means you won’t have as many last-minute gifts you have to buy (which may be gone by the time you go to purchase them), and it may also be easier on your wallet or purse to space out gifts. As you consider the upcoming holiday preparations, don’t neglect a beautiful smile for yourself. With our help, you can get it in time for the holiday season.
If you have stained or otherwise flawed teeth, you may have mastered the closed-mouth smile, or the hand-in-front-of-teeth laugh. You might just think about your smile a lot, especially when meeting new people or when your friend or kid posts a picture of you on their social media page. And aren’t those social gatherings and posts all too common during the holidays?
There’s no need to ever think about your smile again – unless it’s with pride when you look in the mirror or receive compliments about your younger look. Drs. Tom and Jessica Overmeyer can use their skills in cosmetic dentistry to make your smile dazzle in photos and in person alike.
Now’s the time to get started. There are many services we can perform in just one or two treatments. Call (407) 871-3143 today after taking a look at some of these smile-boosting services below.
Boost Your Smile’s Color
If nothing about your smile is more important to you than making it shine for the holidays, teeth whitening is probably your best bet. You’ll get the best of both worlds with our whitening solution: custom-made trays and professional-strength whitening to use at home at your convenience. Because the trays are made specifically for your mouth, they’ll deliver the ultra-strength whitening solution to your teeth, not your gums. And the solution is designed to keep sensitivity to a minimum – a common complaint of store-bought whitening.
In days, you’ll notice a significant difference in the color of your teeth. We’ll give you specific directions for whitening with the prefilled trays. You can do it while you cook, finish chores, lounge at home, sleep, or get ready in the morning. It’s that simple. In a week or two when treatment is complete, you’ll be proud to show off your bright smile.
Boost Your Smile’s Overall Appeal
If a dull smile is a secondary concern or one of many concerns, we may recommend dental veneers instead of whitening alone. Veneers are one of the easiest, sure-fire ways to get a beautiful smile. In fact, they can give you a total smile makeover in as few as two visits with just this one treatment.
The reason they’re so effective at transforming smiles is:
- They cover the entire front surface of a tooth, concealing whatever is beneath.
- They are bonded over teeth with cracks and chips, so that damage cannot go further.
- They are meant to last a decade or two – even longer for some.
- They resist stains.
- They have a translucent appearance that doesn’t let flaws shine through but that looks just like natural teeth, even down to the way they reflect light.
If you’re not sure you want to invest in a long-term solution like veneers, you may be a good candidate for cosmetic bonding instead. It’s a pliable composite resin we match to your teeth and apply, smooth, and harden for a natural look. For some, this solution can last years. Others like to do it as a “test run” before committing to veneers. Others still just need to correct small, isolated flaws, similar to what veneers can do but without something covering the entire tooth.
Boost Your Smile’s Strength & Function
Veneers and bonding can serve as both restorative and cosmetic solutions. So can dental crowns . We may recommend a crown when your damage or staining is more extensive than bonding or veneers can handle. We may also recommend them for back teeth, since veneers are placed on teeth that show when you smile.
Our porcelain crowns look and function like real teeth, so you won’t have dark spots showing in your smile.
Boost Your Smile’s Balance
If your biggest concern is crooked teeth, crowded teeth, or other bite issues, we can start you on a more accelerated orthodontics treatment than metal braces can offer. Your teeth may not be perfectly straight by this holiday season, but they can certainly show noticeable improvements by then.
And don’t worry, our Six Month Smiles clear braces and Invisalign clear aligners are more discreet than metal braces, so you can still smile with confidence. You can even take out your aligners for the holiday photo and meal, though your family may not even notice you’re wearing them. By this time next year – or sooner – your treatment could be completely done. You could even top it off with whitening for a sparkling, finishing touch.
This may be your first holiday in years where you want to get in front of the camera , not behind it. If you’re a new patient with insurance, we’ll credit your account $50 as a welcome gift when you come in for your first exam.
