Your June wedding date is fast approaching and chances are, you’ve already picked out the perfect dress, identified the members of your wedding party, finalized the decorations, and hired a photographer or videographer. But when you reminisce with your wedding photos years from now, will you regret having a yellowed, “gummy,” or otherwise imperfect smile?
June brides don’t have any time to waste; consult a NYC cosmetic dentist right away to get the perfect smile for your wedding day.
Teeth whitening can be a quick fix
There are plenty of over-the-counter teeth whitening products available in the supermarket. But this is a classic example of “If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is.” In fact, Dr. David Blaustein, a Manhattan cosmetic dentist, explains, “Commercially available whitening strips, pastes, and gels can irritate the gums and cause tooth sensitivity. They also tend to take a long time to result in minimal improvement.” Instead, June brides can get the quick, safe results they need with in-office teeth whitening. Laser teeth whitening in particular is known to produce dramatic improvements in just one office visit.
During laser teeth whitening, the dentist applies a high-grade 25 percent hydrogen peroxide gel product and activates it with a UV light for 15 minutes. Then, the gel is removed and a new gel layer is applied. This process is repeated for a total of three 15-minute sessions.
Picture perfect porcelain veneers
June brides who are dissatisfied with other aspects of their smiles, perhaps in addition to the shade, might consider getting porcelain veneers. Veneers are very thin, custom-made shells that are fitted carefully to the front sides of the teeth. Once firmly bonded to the teeth, the veneers can instantly overhaul a person’s smile.
Porcelain veneers are appropriate for correcting the following problems:
- Discolored teeth
- Worn down teeth
- Chipped or broken teeth
- Misaligned, irregularly shaped, or uneven teeth
- Teeth with unsightly gaps between them
Do you need to fix a “gummy” smile?
The perfect smile is one in which the upper gum line is not visible. Excessive gum tissue or receding gum tissue can make the teeth appear too small or too large; neither situation is desirable for brides who are looking forward to showing off their photo albums. The solution is easy: gum contouring. A gum contouring procedure can be completed in only one office visit and it only takes about half an hour.
First, the dentist will numb the mouth to prevent any discomfort. Then, a sophisticated diode laser is applied to excessive gum tissue. The dentist artistically sculpts the gum line to improve its symmetry and overall appearance. The result is a beautiful, perfect smile just in time for your wedding.
