When it comes time for events with special importance in your life, you want to look your very best – and that includes your smile. So, whether it is your wedding or just a major life event, start early with a plan so you and your pearly whites will be ready for the big day.
Six months to one year prior to event: Schedule your consultation
Schedule a consultation with Midtown Dental Care Associates in NYC. This will give you the opportunity to discuss your goals, any concerns you may have, as well as your budget. Together we will go over all the options available to you.
A treatment plan and timeline will be created so that you know what to expect and when – so you can prepare and be ready in time for the important event.
One year prior to event: Invisalign treatment
If having straighter teeth is part of your goals for the special NYC event, then Invisalign is a great option to make it a reality. As long as the recommendations for treatment are adhered to, it can usually be completed in less than a year. The best part is that if you still have more time left to reach your ultimate results, then Invisalign affords you the opportunity to leave your aligners out for the event.
One year prior to event: A smile makeover
A smile makeover may be necessary for those who require both restorative and cosmetic dental procedures to achieve the smile of their dreams.
Sometimes this may involve replacing dental crowns or fillings, adding dental implants to replace missing teeth, and covering imperfections with veneers or cosmetic bonding. Some of these procedures are relatively quick. However, starting the process early allows time in between each procedure for healing.
Three months prior to event: Dental veneers
Porcelain veneers can make an imperfect tooth look perfect. They hide chips, discolorations, misshapen teeth and gaps. If you are not happy with the way your teeth look in their color, size, or shape, they provide a long-term solution and create a beautiful smile.
Getting veneers is a multi-step process so you will want to start at least three months prior to the event.
Two months prior to event: Dental cleaning
By this time, your event is fast-approaching. A dental cleaning will give you a chance to get your teeth all cleaned up and polished for the big day. This helps remove any buildup and will polish away surface stains so you can smile beautifully.
One month prior to event: Teeth whitening
Finally, just before the big day arrives, you will want to have your teeth whitening appointment. A professional, in-office whitening will give you the chance to brighten your teeth many shades brighter and in only about an hour. Be sure to schedule this at least a couple of weeks before the event so that you have time to allow the whitening to even out and any sensitivity to subside.
