his is the day you’ve been waiting for, the day you’ve been dreaming of. You want everything to be perfect, from the flowers to the cake to the dress. But then you think of pictures–those close-ups of you smiling for the camera in your beautiful white wedding gown.
Are your teeth going to be as perfect as the rest of you? Will they be as white as your dress?
If you’ve got any doubts, then now is the time to take care of them. And don’t worry! Wedding dentistry can be completed extremely fast. Don’t imagine that you’ll need to be wearing braces for a year before you can walk down the aisle with straight teeth.
There are things you can do now, even just months before your wedding day, to get you the bridal smile makeover that you so truly deserve.
It’s the biggest day of your life. A little dental work–a little cosmetic dentistry–will only help it be all the better. Here are our tips for pre-wedding oral health.
#1. Teeth Whitening for the Wedding
No one thing will do more for you faster than a professional teeth whitening, and the best teeth whitening for a wedding can come from Perfect White Smiles. We can work wonders on your teeth, even weeks before your wedding.
The over-the-counter, home-kit teeth whitening products can only get you so far. If you want truly beautiful white teeth, then you should see that dentist and get the Beverly Hills treatment. Depending on the state of your teeth, it could be a few weeks or a few months to get you the results that you want, but brides and grooms both should consider professional teeth whitening services to make sure their smile is as vibrant as they are.
Bonus Tip: While you’re getting your teeth whitened (and after, if you want to maintain that white smile) remember the things that can stain your teeth. It may be hard, but the weeks before the wedding, after you’ve been professionally whitened, might be a good time to lay off the coffee, red wine, cola, soy sauce, berries, and dark fruit juices. Just remember: if it would stain your carpet, it can probably stain your teeth.
#2. Teeth Straightening
You may think that the wedding is too close for you to get any kind of orthodontic treatment to fix a crooked tooth or a gap. But the advances that have been made in orthodontia are amazing, and you don’t necessarily need a long-term treatment. Depending on how crooked your teeth truly are, you might be able to get invisible liners that will straighten minor problems out even just months before your wedding day.
Just remember: it’s not as scary as you think it is. You won’t be spending the months leading up to the wedding in headgear and braces. If you’ve ever wanted to get orthodontic work done, then now is the time.
#3. Fix Those Chipped, Broken or Missing Teeth
We all have problems with our teeth, and it’s nothing to be ashamed of. Maybe you were eating a caramel and it pulled out a filling, or maybe you were playing football with the groomsmen on Thanksgiving and you chipped a tooth. Nothing to worry about!
Dentists have all kinds of things at their disposal to make that smile look like new again. If there’s a major problem, then there’s action that can be taken, like bridges and implants. If it’s a smaller problem like chipped teeth or a gap, then veneers might be the solution.
Don’t scoff at fake teeth for a wedding. Veneers look perfectly natural and no one will have any idea that they’re hiding a blemish in your mouth.
#4. Make an Appointment Today
Most importantly, if you have any concerns about your smile ahead of your wedding, then now is the time to act. And it starts as simply as making an appointment with your dentist. Visit Perfect White Smiles for a cleaning and consultation. We’ll see what condition your mouth is in and how we can spruce it up for the wedding.
Remember, you’ve been waiting all your life for this day. You’ve found the perfect partner. Now get the perfect teeth.
