What do you think of when you hear the word thanksgiving? Do you think of the holiday? Thanksgiving is filled with all sorts of memorable details. The delicious food you get to eat (assuming you don’t burn the turkey), the football games you get to watch, and the time you get to spend with friends and family.
For many of our patients, Thanksgiving is one of the few times a year when all of their friends and family are gathered together in a single location. It’s a time filled with embarrassing family stories perhaps better left untold, board games and a sense of competition, and all-tother quality bonding time. Before you know it, someone will have out their iPhone or camera to snap a lot of photos of the proceedings.
How do you feel about smiling for the camera? Many of our long-term patients came to us originally because they felt embarrassed about some aspect of their teeth and smile. The flaws of the teeth played a direct role in lowering their self-esteem. They pursed their lips together when smiling for a photo, embarrassed by what opening their mouth would reveal. But dentistry has a solution for the problems which plaque your smile.
At 1st In Smiles in Plano, TX, we take great joy in helping our patients recover their missing self-confidence through a smile makeover. We offer a variety of services and painless procedures specifically designed to make-over your smile. In today’s post of our dental health blog, we’d like to take the opportunity to tell you a little bit more about your options.
We can straighten and correct crooked teeth with the privacy of Invisalign braces. We can cover flaws and imperfections in your smile with veneers which we can apply in just two visits. We can also whiten your smile; erasing years of coffee stains, teeth yellowing, and other discoloration of your teeth.
Straighten Crooked Teeth in Comfort and Privacy
Have you ever thought that you might need braces? If your teeth are crooked, crowded, or gapped in appearance, then you may need an orthodontic treatment. But that doesn’t mean you have to settle for metal braces anymore! At 1st In Smiles in Plano, TX, we are extremely proud to offer the Invisalign system of orthodontics.
What makes Invisalign so special? It doesn’t require the use of the metal brackets and wires of traditional braces. Instead, Invisalign uses a comfortable series of transparent, plastic aligners to correct your teeth. Invisalign is nearly invisible; no one even has to know that you’re wearing braces! Invisalign can have your smile correct in about half the time of traditional braces. Then you’ll never be afraid to smile again! Best of all Invisalign aligners are removable; that means you can still eat all the foods you love and maintain your current oral hygiene routine.
Cover Your Smile’s Flaws with Lumineers Veneers
Veneers are one of the coolest offerings in the dental veneers. Veneers are a covering designed to look just like natural teeth (we can match the shade to the whiteness of your other teeth, or go whiter if you’re receiving several). We bond a veneer to the outside of your tooth; veneers work great at fixing those small things that drive you crazy about your smile.
Veneers are a great solution if you are suffering from cracked or chipped teeth. We offer the Lumineer brand of veneers; these veneers are so thin (but extremely durable) that we don’t have to remove much enamel from your teeth in order to make room for them. In just two easy appointments at our office, you can leave with a smile that both dazzles and looks all natural.
Whiten Your Teeth with Opalescence Boost Teeth Whitening
Your teeth can become discolored and stained, no matter how vigorously you brush them. The natural dyes found in things like wine and coffee can take their toll. The simple act of aging may leave your teeth less white than they once were. But with in-office Opalescence Boost Teeth Whitening we offer a way for you to take years of discoloration off of your teeth in about an hour. Our whitening method is achieved with the use of professional strength whitening gel and an ultraviolet light. This procedure is good if you want to look great for your Thanksgiving dinner.
