Congratulations on your engagement! Now it is time to start planning for your big day. We know that dress shopping, flowers and finding a wedding venue is on your to-do list, but don’t forget about your smile. You’ll be in front of your favorite people and left with a lifetime of photographs from this memorable day. There’s really no better time to better your smile! After all, nothing taints a beautiful wedding more than a bride or groom trying to hide their smile due to unsightly teeth.
For a confident wedding day, add cosmetic dentistry to your wedding planning list. With today’s cosmetic dental menu, there are options that fit every budget and timeline.
When it comes to addressing your smile, the first item of business is repairing those chips, breaks or cracks. This can be done through a very affordable treatment called dental bonding. Bonding not only restores the shape and appearance of a tooth, but it also protects the tooth from future decay, sensitivity and/or infection. Bonding is a quick and painless procedure that can also be used to correct minor imperfections such as asymmetry, small gaps and discoloration.
One of the quickest and most popular ways to enhance your smile before your wedding day is professional teeth whitening. If you are a bride-to-be, you don’t want your dress to be brighter than your smile. In fact, a pure white dress can make your teeth look even more yellow. Professional whitening from your dentist can lighten your teeth by several shades and erase the unsightly stains left by coffee, red wine, berries and other dark colored foods and drinks. You can choose in-office whitening or at-home whitening depending on how much time you have before your wedding day.
If crooked teeth are holding you back from a confident wedding day smile, then consider your teeth straightening options. Few brides and grooms have the time and money set aside for a full set of traditional braces. Thankfully, there are more convenient solutions, such as short-term orthodontics and porcelain veneers. Veneers are certainly the quickest. In fact, they are often named “instant orthodontics.” Cosmetic veneers are thin shells of porcelain that are bonded to the front of the teeth, changing the shape, size or color to achieve your smile goals. This can be done in as little as two office visits, giving you ample time to worry about bridesmaid’s dresses and reception food.
