You have been planning your wedding for months. You have ordered the perfect invitations, found the ideal venue, and tried on dozens of dresses until you found “The One.” The groom has found the perfect tux and had it tailored to make him look his best.
But looking your best is more than just clothes and hairstyles. It also means a smile that glows. After all, the first thing any photographer says is, “Smile.”
If you think your smile could use a little help, you aren’t alone. One out of four people feel the same way. But you shouldn’t feel smile-shy on your wedding day.
Dr. Alvarado offers wedding packages that include everything you and your partner need to look your best for the big day. Let’s show you how we can prepare you in our spacious spa-like offices.
1. Tooth Straightening
Think that getting your teeth aligned means years of heavy silver braces on your teeth? Think again. Dr. Alvarado can work with you to get your teeth straightened in a fraction of the time. In addition, she works with Invisalign clear braces that allow you to straighten your teeth without looking like a child.
2. Tooth Whitening
Your teeth may look discolored from drinking coffee, tea, or other dark-colored beverages. Tobacco use, whether smoking or chewing, can also contribute to dark or yellowed teeth.
There are over-the-counter products that make a lot of promises that fail to deliver. That’s where Dr. Alvarado can help.
She offers in-office tooth whitening that can brighten your teeth ten shades in a single hour. In addition, she uses special buffers that protect your gums, tongue, and cheeks, giving you a healthier and whiter smile.
3. Tooth Veneers
If you have deeply discolored or chipped teeth, or if you have significant gaps, consider tooth veneers. These slim porcelain wafers are custom designed to fit your teeth and mouth.
Dr. Alvarado can bond them to the portion of the teeth that show, giving you an instantly whiter smile. Making the veneers a little larger or sculpting them to fill in small chips not only makes your smile better looking, but it also supports the overall health of the teeth.
For larger breaks or misshapen teeth, Dr. Alvarado offers tooth bonding. In this procedure, she uses a bonding agent that matches the color of your teeth. Next, she sculpts the malleable material over the tooth, giving you the appearance of a healthy tooth.
Then she shines a special light on the agent and the tooth to cure the material and give you a permanently bonded tooth. The new area will look and feel like a tooth, so it doesn’t just make you look better. It will improve your ability to bite, chew, and talk.
If too much of the tooth is missing, bonding may not be appropriate. That’s when Dr. Alvarado may offer a crown for the tooth. When crowning a tooth, Dr. Alvarado removes as much of the broken or missing tooth as she can.
Then she molds a new tooth that fits the space and permanently bonds it to the base of the treated tooth. The new, crowned tooth will look and work just like a natural tooth.
Doesn’t it make sense to take the time to prepare your smile for your wedding day? You and your partner will look back on this day and these pictures as an epoch in your life together. So, shouldn’t you both look your best?
After all, when the day is over, and the pictures are hanging in your home together, you won’t be looking at the flowers or the cake or the custom printed napkins. You will be looking at your smiles.
