Getting Married? 4 Ways To Make Your Teeth Look Their Best On Your Big Day

Posted on

If you're going to be getting married soon, and your smile is less than perfect, now's the time to make an appointment with a cosmetic dentist. You want your smile to show off your beautiful teeth. Here are four ways that cosmetic dentistry can make you look your best on your wedding day.

1.  Brighten Your Smile

If you've got years of discoloration on your teeth, your smile isn't going to be its brightest for your wedding pictures. You can restore the brilliance of your smile by scheduling a whitening treatment session with your dentist. One of the benefits of a professional whitening treatment is that it will remove the stains and discoloration that over-the-counter treatments can't touch.

2.  Fill in the Gaps

If you've got minor gaps between your teeth, but you don't have time to go through orthodontic treatment, talk to your cosmetic dentist about bonding. Unlike orthodontic treatment that takes years for you to see a visible difference, bonding allows for immediate removal of those small gaps and spaces. Once treatment is complete, your teeth will look like you've had years of orthodontic treatment.

3.  Give Yourself a Straight Edge

If the edges of your teeth are less than straight, have them filed down. Tooth contouring will remove the jagged, uneven edges from your teeth, leaving you with a perfect smile. Tooth contouring can also be used to remove excess enamel from the front of your teeth, to provide you with a smooth, even surface.

If you have a gummy smile – meaning you show too much of your gumline – your cosmetic dentist can use contouring to remove the excess gumline, as well. This process will leave you with a more aesthetically appealing smile for your wedding pictures.

4.  Cover the Blemishes

If years of neglect have left your teeth with chips, cracks, and stains that are going to take away from your wedding day appearance, talk to your cosmetic dentist about crowns and veneers. Crowns are tooth-shaped covers that go directly over the entire tooth. Crowns for front teeth are made from tooth-colored porcelain so no one will know that you have them on.

Crowns are most beneficial for teeth that have severe damage or decay. Porcelain veneers work by covering the surface of the affected tooth. They're best for repairing minor blemishes such as chips and cracks.

Now that you're planning your big day, make sure your teeth are picture-perfect. Schedule an appointment with a cosmetic dentistry office to repair the defects that will prevent you from smiling your brightest. If your fiance has dental issues as well, schedule a couples appointment. That way, you can both look your best on your wedding day.
