Parents of the Bride and Groom count too! Dental Design Studio

Parents, you, too, can look and feel your best on your child’s wedding day. Beautiful smiles aren’t just about veneers and Hollywood smiles…sometimes simple things, such as whitening, re-contouring, bonding, etc., can make a world of difference. Dr. Richard Whalen can provide many options to help you improve your smile! In addition to these services, Dental Design Studio has added non-surgical options to enhance a patient’s smile, including Emface and Exion. Emface works to lift, restore volume, and reduce fine lines in the face. It also tones underlying facial muscles to provide an overall refreshed, tighter, smoother complexion by naturally increasing collagen and elastin. Call today to see how Dental Design Studio can get you wedding ready.
