Is It Too Early To Plan For My Holiday Smile?

September 18, 2018

You may be one of those people that love hearing holiday music all year long. Maybe when you see the grocery store aisles in Olathe, KS full of Halloween candy, you already start thinking of your New Year’s Resolutions? You may also be a person who only wants to think about Santa during December and not a second sooner. No matter how you feel about the holidays, if you are a person who likes to have a beautiful smile for the season – you may want to start planning for it now. Some cosmetic updates to a smile can take longer than others.

Plan for Surprises

If you have a big holiday party that you want to look your best for or if your family always takes a photo for a Christmas card, you may be wishing you had a bright, white smile. In a lot of situations, we can help you reach your smile goals in a straightforward way. However, there are some cases that can have circumstances that may need to take a different route to solve a problem. For instance, some discoloration on teeth comes from below the surface (like from tooth trauma or side effects from medication). In these cases, a whitening treatment cannot remove the discoloration. Porcelain veneers may be the best route to update your smile’s appearance.

What Are Your Smile’s Needs?

Other surprises that can occur can have to do with the smile’s health beneath the appearance. If a problem is discovered, that may take the first priority. Of course, your dentist can help you address your smile’s health needs and the appearance. Your smile’s needs may require multiple visits. Conversely, your smile may just need a routine exam and cleaning. Knowing what you need means getting in to see your dentist with a cushion of time before your big photo shoot or important party.
