Planning Your Wedding Day Smile

When planning a wedding, there are many things to consider. Weddings are a once-in-a-lifetime event to remember, and many people say their wedding day is the happiest day of their life.

Surrounding yourself with family, friends, and the love of your life is the ultimate opportunity to show off your best self. From a beautiful smile to the perfect wedding dress, investing in the big day pays off in spades when it comes to your happiness and the memories you will make.

The perfect wedding is incomplete without the perfect smile. Weddings are also one of the most photographed days of our lives. Having a beautiful smile is an easy but important way to make sure your wedding day is as beautiful as you have always dreamed.

From whitening to straightening and more, there are dozens of ways to make your smile bright and beautiful for your wedding day.

Start with a Routine Check-Up

A routine check-up is a great way to catch any dental problems. If you have concerns about cavities, fluoridation, tooth pain, or other dental problems, we can address these at this time as well.

Your check-up is also the perfect opportunity to discuss the timeline and cost for other cosmetic dental treatments you may be interested in before your wedding. Schedule a check-up as soon as you have finalized a wedding date.

Beautiful Smile

 

Whitening Your Teeth for a Beautiful Smile

Perhaps one of the dental treatments most people think of first before their wedding is teeth whitening. It is well-known that bright, white smiles are considered to be more beautiful and bring out the best features in your face.

For brides, tooth whitening is essential: there is no better way to show off the color of your wedding dress than to match it to your beautiful white teeth.

In-office tooth whitening has many advantages that are not offered by at-home whitening treatments. Whitening treatments provided in our office use specialized dental trays and are stronger than over-the-counter whitening treatments. It is also less damaging to the enamel.

Invisalign: The Discreet Solution for Perfectly Straight Teeth

Every bride dreams of having a clear white smile with straight teeth on her wedding day. Whether male or female, bride or groom, the appeal of having perfectly straight teeth is hard to deny. Fixing crooked teeth is the perfect way to achieve the wedding smile of your dreams.

Traditional metal braces are the most common solution for straightening and evening of the teeth. However, they are visually unappealing and make the mouth look awkward and uncomfortable. They also can take upwards of several years to work effectively. Few brides or grooms want to have the appearance of having metal braces for their wedding day, and fewer still are willing to wait several years to have their braces off before getting married.

However, there is good news for those wanting a perfect smile for their big day without the unsightly appearance of braces: Invisalign is a cutting-edge dental technology that allows the teeth to be straightened without being noticeable to the naked eye.

Invisalign dental straighteners are constructed of a clear plastic material that is specially fitted for you and the specific anatomy of your teeth and mouth. They are disposable and should be swapped out approximately once every week for the next pair. They are a simple, beautiful, and cost-effective solution for getting straight teeth quickly.

Still, don’t want braces? Then discuss other cosmetic dental options with our team.

Consider Veneers Prior to Your Wedding

Veneers are thin shells, typically constructed from porcelain, that cover the outer aspect of the teeth. Traditional porcelain veneers require initial reduction of the teeth before being glued onto the surface of the teeth, while LUMINEERS are a different style of veneer which does not require pre-reduction.

Veneers improve the appearance of the teeth in a number of ways. They make the teeth look even and natural in appearance, and can disguise chipped, broken teeth or gaps between the teeth. They can eliminate discoloration of the teeth and make them look straighter, brighter, and more even than ever before.

If your teeth are worn down, crooked, and uneven, porcelain veneers or LUMINEERS are likely a good solution for you. For the ultimate wedding smile, a full set of upper or lower veneers may be the answer to your dental desires.

Whether you are considering porcelain veneers, the even thinner LUMINEERS, or unsure which between the two would be more appropriate for you, contact our office today for an initial consultation and to learn more about your options.
