My boss called me into his office. He started off by telling me he felt awkward saying this but he thinks I’ll understand in the long run. I was so afraid I was about to be fired. Instead, he said, “I want to give you a big promotion, but you’ll need to straighten and whiten your teeth to get it.” I was puzzled until he explained that I’ll be their Public Relations person as well as a division leader. The PR post would require me doing media interviews, which means I’d need a pretty smile in order to make a positive impression. The money would be super worth any expense. It’s a huge promotion and he was right that I’d completely understand. I want to do this right. What do you suggest?
First, let me say congratulations! What a promotion that is. I’m sure you’re thrilled. You have a couple of great choices to meet your cosmetic goals.
Straighten Your Teeth With Invisalign
Invisalign is a type of invisible orthodontics which is ideal for adults who which to straighten their teeth without a mouth full of metal. They use clear aligners. The image above shows a comparison of someone smiling with both braces and Invisalign. They tend to also work more quickly than braces as well.
If you go this route, the aligners can double as teeth whitening trays allowing you to straighten and whiten your teeth at the same time.
Remake Your Smile with Porcelain Veneers
If you don’t care about straightening your teeth and just want them to look straight, you can get a total smile makeover with porcelain veneers.
These use tiny wafers of porcelain to change the shape, size, and color of your teeth simultaneously. They have two big benefits for you.
- They will be a faster procedure than Invisalign
- They can completely change your smile, making it celebrity beautiful almost instantly
Their drawback is they’re much more expensive than the first option I gave you. Either one will give you the smile you need for your promotion.
Best of luck to you and enjoy the fruits of your labor.
