Creating a Smile That Dazzles for Your Big Day
Wedding, graduation, retirement party, family reunion, holiday — whatever big event is in your future, we can ensure your smile will shine white and bright. Here’s a look at some great options.

Life is full of big events — proms, graduations, weddings, holidays, family reunions, retirement parties — and you want to ensure you’re looking your very best, especially if you’re the center of attention. One of the most effective strategies for shining on your big day is to have a smile that sparkles with pearly white teeth.

The good news is that there are many roads to a winning smile, and we have them here at Pure Smiles. Under the direction of Dr. Leila Shahbazi, our team offers a wide range of services, such as holistic dentistry, wedding teeth, and smile makeovers, that will make your smile dazzle for your big day.

Whitening your teeth

About 37 million Americans use teeth whiteners each year, for good reason. Teeth whitening is one of the most economical and fastest ways to make a big difference in your appearance.

Your smile is one of the first things people notice about you, and you can make a more lasting impression if that smile sparkles with white teeth. Unfortunately, over time, your enamel can break down, which allows the darker dentin inside your teeth to show through, creating that dull, yellowing effect.

At our practice, we get your enamel back to a bright white with a professional-grade whitening system called Zoom!®. In just one visit, we can whiten your teeth by several shades. To do this, we apply a high-grade bleaching agent to your teeth, taking great care to protect your gums, and then we use a special light to activate the whitener.

While our in-office whitening delivers immediate and dramatic results, you can also try a take-home kit for a more gradual approach.

If your enamel is in fairly good shape but a little dull, you can skip the whitening and come in for professional cleaning and polish before your big day. 

Beyond whitening

If you want to upgrade your smile beyond whitening, we offer two great solutions:

No-prep veneers

Dental veneers are thin shells that we place over the fronts of your teeth in your smile zone. Veneers not only provide a whiter facade for your teeth, but they can also cover up minor imperfections to give you a more even smile, such as:

  • Gaps in your teeth
  • Chips
  • Crooked teeth
  • Stains

Traditionally, we need to remove a layer of your tooth’s enamel to make room for the veneer, but we now offer no-prep veneers, which means we can leave your enamel intact.

Dental bonding

Another great smile-improving tool is dental bonding. With this approach, we use a tooth-colored liquid resin to cover up a number of flaws, including:

  • Chips
  • Cracks
  • Gaps
  • Misshapen teeth
  • Discolored teeth

We apply the resin and then let it set and dry. Once in place, the bonding fits in seamlessly with your teeth and gives you an imperfection-free smile that you’ll be proud to show off on your big day.

To determine which option will help your smile dazzle, we invite you to contact our office in Scottsdale, Arizona, to schedule an appointment.
