Ramadan is ending soon! It is now the time for everyone to start preparing for Hari Raya festivities. The time of the year to bring out your Kuih Makmur recipe, shop for new curtains, and jazz up your living room with new furniture.
But it is also the time to prepare and elevate your smile and be smile-ready in every photo! Imagine meeting someone who greets you with a happy, confident smile and someone with a neutral, ill-at-ease half-smile. Which one gives the better first impression?
Research has shown that people are more likely to smile if they’re confident in how their teeth look. And those who smile more are seen as more friendly people. That’s why here at Orchard Scotts Dental Singapore, we understand how important your smile is in boosting your confidence to smile and socialise.
Here are six ways we can help transform your smile into one that you can be proud to show off during Hari Raya.
1. Book In For Your Routine Dental Check-Up and Clean
A healthy smile can transform your visual appearance, set positivity in your mindset, and improve overall health. Get your teeth checked and cleaned by one of our dentists before the Hari Raya festivities to prevent developing cavities and occurrences of dental pain. It wouldn’t be fun to experience dental emergencies during the feasts, right?
During your Routine Dental Check-Up and Clean, we will be able to catch early signs of dental problems. Depending on the severity, we may provide preventive treatment or treat it right away to avoid experiencing any dental emergency during the festivities.
In addition, bad breath can have powerful effects on social situations, and most of the time, people are generally unaware. During your routine dental check-up and clean, we can clean any hard-to-reach areas that your toothbrushes can’t clean. It is usually where plaque and tartar build-up, causing bad breath.
2. Brighten Up Your Smile with Teeth Whitening
It is no doubt that whitening your teeth can make your smile pop! Hari Raya Puasa usually involves a lot of photographs and, no doubt, you want to look your very best. With Teeth Whitening from Orchard Scotts Dental, you can significantly improve your smile for this special occasion!
We offer White Glo Tooth Whitening, which you can do in the comforts of your home or at our dental practice done by one of our dentists. Teeth Whitening removes stubborn stains that make your teeth appear dull and yellow. Click here to learn more about the Teeth Whitening procedure in our practice
3. Elevate Your Smile with Porcelain Veneers
Don’t let cosmetic imperfections keep you from smiling freely during the festivities of Hari Raya! Veneers are one of the best solutions to your dental cosmetic concerns like teeth having dull colour, gaps in between teeth, chipped teeth, irregular shape, and even slight crookedness of your front teeth.
A new smile with Porcelain Veneers can also come together in as few as three appointments, and our dentists will ensure your Veneers match your facial features and personality. Read more here if you want to know if you’re suitable for Porcelain Veneers
4. Gummy Smile No More with Laser Gum Reshaping
If you hold back from smiling because of excessive gum showing up, we are here for you! You may have noticed that your teeth look small or short, and the problem may not be your teeth, but your gums seem to be in excess of their ideal thickness.
One of the most common treatments for patients with a gummy smile is Laser Gummy Smile Reshaping or Recontouring. We use a soft-tissue laser to remove excess gum tissue, achieving the ideal proportions between your teeth and gums. This treatment can be done in a single visit, and usually, after 5-7 days, it will look like we did nothing on your gums –ready for selfies!

5. Same-Day Crowns to Quickly Restore Your Teeth
Got a broken tooth? Cracked tooth? Or weakened tooth? Same-Day Crowns is perfect for you!
During your Routine Dental Check-Up and Clean, we inspect the soundness of your teeth through x-rays. If you have a cracked or weakened tooth, it is prone to chipping or breaking into parts while you eat during Hari Raya, which we would want to avoid as it will cause you a lot of pain and discomfort during the gathering.
Restore your oral health and comfort in one visit with same-day crowns. We will do all the needed steps in just a single visit, from preparing and shaping teeth to inserting your new Dental Crown. You wouldn’t need to come back several times, just like how a traditional dental crown is made.

6. Start Your Invisalign Journey
The outcome you want may not be achievable in a short time, but at least you get to start your journey towards a straighter smile! And who knows, it could be ready before the next social festivity!
Invisalign is less noticeable than traditional metal braces, some would even say invisible, and people around you might not even notice you’re wearing something on your teeth. However, you need to remove your Invisalign clear aligners before eating and drinking beverages. Make sure you don’t misplace your clear aligners during Hari Raya gatherings by placing them in its case every time you remove them.
