Your wedding day is one of the biggest days of your life. And the part of your wedding that lasts forever is the beautiful portraits taken to capture this special event.
Regardless of your preference for photography style, there’s one thing that’s certain: each picture revolves around the happiness of the bride and groom and their smiles to show for it. Your wedding day smiles will be seen for generations and you deserve to be proud of them. With a goal in mind for what you would like your smile to look like on that day, you can create beautiful pearly whites in time for this special occasion, with some simple planning.
Cosmetic Dentistry for brides-to-be
There are various cosmetic approaches to improve both the appearance and the health of your teeth. Depending on how much planning time you have ahead of your wedding day, you can choose from a variety of methods to make your smile over, ranging from anything from a one-hour procedure to a six to 12 month treatment for achieving perfectly straight teeth with no gaps.
Below we explain a few different treatments and what you can expect from each of them:
Porcelain veneers take approximately two visits to your dentist to complete, ideally over the span of about two weeks. Each veneer is custom designed to create the appearance of an entirely new smile as they are bonded to the front of your existing teeth. Your smile can be whiter, straighter, and look even better than ever before in what seems like an instant. Porcelain veneers last for several years and you care for them as if they were natural teeth.
In this one-hour appointment, your dentist performs a treatment to whiten teeth by several shades in just one visit. It’s great for lifting deep, heavy-set stains from coffee, tea, wine, or tobacco products, to give you a stand-out smile when your time is limited. In-office whitening is a great choice for the bride-to-be who is looking for a dramatic difference in her smile but doesn’t have a lot of time to spare. It’s a simple, painless procedure that suits grooms-to-be and members of the bridal party, too.
Take-home Teeth Whitening
Another whitening alternative for busy people is take-home kits, available from your dentist. These are custom trays taken home and worn for an hour each day for up to two weeks. The professional grade peroxide gel causes stain particles to break apart and lift themselves from tooth enamel, leaving your teeth whiter and looking younger.
Bonding is the ideal treatment for areas of your smile with small discrepancies, such as chips or gaps in the teeth. The tooth coloured material is shaped and bonded to the tooth, completed in just a short visit to your dentist. Bonding is ideal for treating one or two specific teeth and the material is closely matched with surrounding teeth so the treatment blends in with the natural enamel colour around the restoration.
If you have crooked teeth causing gaps in your smile and you have six to 12 months before your wedding day arrives, there’s good news. Invisible braces, known as Invisalign, can help reposition your teeth into straight alignment with one another, without the need for metal brackets or wires. These ‘braces’ can also be removed. They’re easy to care for and there’s no problem enjoying eating as you normally would. Wearing a clear retainer will help ensure that your results last a lifetime.
Which treatment is best for your wedding day smile?
Improving your smile not only helps you look your best in your wedding photos, having straight, white teeth will also boost your general confidence and give you a reason to smile more often. Your wedding day is one of the happiest days of you and your family’s entire life … don’t you want to show it?
