Creating a Dental Plan for Your Special Event

September 29, 2023

If you've been eagerly waiting for a special event like a wedding, prom, or graduation, you know that a lot of planning goes into the big day. You may already have a plan for your hair and outfit, but you need to think about your smile as well. On the day of your special event, you will want your smile to match your radiance and create lasting memories that will be preserved forever in photos.

Fortunately, Harmony Dental Center of Leesburg can help by providing a dental "makeover." Using various cosmetic and restorative techniques, you can straighten, brighten, and restore your smile.

We have created a guide to making a dental plan you can follow before your special event. Remember that some cosmetic dentistry services require several months to complete, so consider your dental plan at least a year in advance if you want to receive them.

Six Months to One Year Before Your Event: Consultation

Before your milestone event, Dr. Cowell will happily meet with you to discuss your dental plans. She will recommend treatments and give you options for creating the gorgeous look of your dreams.

Using digital dentistry tools, the dentist can give you a 3-D preview of your smile after your treatment.

One Year Before Event: Invisalign

If you’ve always felt self-conscious about crooked or gapped teeth, we can help you feel confident. Invisalign often works in just one year, though it may take longer if you have more misaligned teeth.

The dentist creates Invisalign trays by performing a digital scan of your mouth's hard and soft tissues and using this scan to build a 3-D model of your teeth. They then plan the movement of each tooth.

When the aligners return from the lab, you will wear them for about one to two weeks before progressing to the next one. In 12 short months or perhaps a few more, you will have a beautifully aligned smile ready to take center stage.

One Year Before Event: Smile Makeover

If you feel like you will need significant dental work to smile with confidence, don’t worry. We can help you. If you need multiple procedures, you may need about a year to complete them. We can bring your smile back to life with crowns, bridges, veneers, Invisalign, bonding, or teeth whitening.

Three Months Before Event: Veneers

Dr. Cowell can place veneers in an easy two-appointment process. She prepares your teeth by removing a thin layer of enamel and then applies porcelain or composite shells. Veneers can cover stained, chipped, misshapen, or slightly misaligned teeth.They can replace more than one procedure at a time, meaning that they could save you both time and money that you can use to make your event even more amazing.

Two Months Before Event: Dental Cleaning and Exam

A dental cleaning brightens your smile, removes minor surface stains, and ensures your teeth are healthy. Getting your teeth cleaned about a month before undergoing any whitening treatment is a great idea.

One Month Before Event: Teeth Whitening

While teeth whitening can happen in one appointment, you should think about it at least a month before your event. Professional teeth whitening is a safe process, but the peroxide gel dehydrates your teeth for a short time. After about a month, the color of your teeth will settle, and you will enjoy a fantastic new smile.
