Planning a wedding can be fun but stressful, especially when it comes to the bride and groom’s appearance. Plenty of us remember setting appointments with a nutritionist, personal trainer, makeup artist, etc. But the one thing that you might be forgetting though, in every single photo, you will be smiling.
Remember that there will be hundreds of photos, both professional and candid ones with your new spouse, your family, and friends. The wedding is your special day that everyone will remember with you. And to top it off, you and your spouse will have several memorable photos to hang in your home forever.
If you’re thinking about this yet still plan to hide your smile and joy on your wedding day, then it may be time to make that appointment with your dentist.
There are plenty of smile makeover options for the bride and groom depending on what you’re looking for and how far away your special day is, but each one can help you say, “I do,” with a big smile.
Professional Teeth Whitening
If you’re running short on time before your wedding day, then a teeth whitening treatment may be the best option for the bride and groom instead of a full smile makeover. This type of treatment takes an hour to complete in office, and you can request a take home customized plan to further your treatment.
You can participate in teeth whitening regardless of any crooked teeth of gaps in your mouth. In fact, teeth whitening can help make many of your insecurities a mere afterthought. Plus, teeth whitening treatments can be a great bridal party gift that goes a long way after the reception is over!
Porcelain or DURAthin Veneers
If you’ve looked at celebrity weddings and dream wedding photos, you may be wondering what the bride and groom did to have that perfect smile. Aside from the thousands of dollars possibly spent on a complete smile makeover and plastic surgery, one of the main sources that celebrities use are veneers.
Porcelain veneers or DURAthin veneers can help cover up teeth stains and discoloration, chips, cracks and misalignment. You can even get veneers that help lengthen short teeth. Veneers help give a more natural smile without the need for surgery or orthodontic care, and the appointments will not take a lot of time out of your wedding planning.
If you have a few months to a couple of years before your wedding and have always wanted to straighten your teeth, Invisalign™ is a great way to adjust your smile before the big day. Unlike braces, Invisalign™ doesn’t involve permanent metal on your teeth, giving you the freedom to eat whatever you want and they are clear.
The only catch is that you’ll have to wear your Invisalign™ trays 20 to 22 hours a day, so you have to be careful where you place them when you eat. Not only will the bride and groom have straighter teeth for your special day, but you will also have a fantastic smile makeover that will last for years!
Cleaning and Exam
If your teeth are in good shape, then you may only need a professional teeth cleaning and exam by one of our general dentists. Even without a teeth whitening service, a quick tooth cleaning and plaque removal can help remove some stains from your teeth while also preventing long-term issues such as gingivitis. An oral exam by one of our specialists can also help pinpoint any issues that you may be experiencing or might have questions about. Remember: your overall oral health is the most important addition to your smile.
No matter how far away your wedding day is or what your dental needs are, there is a smile makeover for the bride and groom that will be a great fit just for you two.
