Wishing you Best Future! Your wedding day is coming up. This is an exceptional day sure to be marked by many photos of your smiling face. How do you get that wedding day smile as beautiful as possible? Read on to find out.
Perfection is a Goal Not a Reality
A healthy, great looking smile means that when you smile nothing misleads or detracts from your overall appearance. A great smile enhances your overall appearance. It is possible that you might just have a great smile already, but you don’t smile because you are self-conscious or something. Others do not look at us as we do. Teeth don’t have to be perfect for you to have a great smile. Acceptance of what you have is often the easiest way to improve your smile.
One of the easiest ways to improve both your smile and self-esteem is by whitening your teeth. This can be accomplished in a number of ways. I have found that some patients have effectively used Crest White Strips to whiten their teeth at home. The dentist provided home whitening can be significantly more effective than anything available over the counter. Zoom whitening is done in the dental office consistently gets the wow in about an hour. Home whitening trays custom-made by the dentist deliver whitening solution to your teeth at home, for the do-it-yourselfers among us. For most brides and grooms, tooth whitening is the easiest way to get a better wedding day smile.
Closing Gaps and Reshaping Smiles
For those brides who have spaces or irregular teeth, dental bonding may be right for you. Dental bonding is the application of tooth-colored filling material to repair and reshape teeth. Dental bonding material can be virtually indistinguishable from your existing tooth. Today bonding can quickly and cost-effectively close spaces and reshape worn or funky teeth in just one visit. The beauty of the procedure is that is possible to see the final results before you even commit to the work. This can be done through a mockup of the final result by the dentist. Bonding is often combined with an initial whitening to get your teeth their whitest and then match the composite bonding material to the new whiter shade.
If your teeth are truly looking bad then you might be a candidate for porcelain veneers. This is when porcelain is bonded to the front of your teeth to give you a brand new amazing smile. Veneers often require reshaping of the teeth prior to their placement. This makes porcelain veneers a non-reversible procedure. A well done and well-maintained set of veneers can last over 20 years!
Crooked teeth-No Problem
Today it has become quite easy to move teeth to their ideal position with clear aligner therapy. The most common brand being Invisalign. The best part of having that new great smile is that your teeth will actually last longer effectively needing less dentistry through the years. Teeth that slide as opposed to collide tend to wear better, gums stay healthier and people age better having a great functional smile.
Combining Cosmetic Dental Options
Depending on your individual situation you and your dentist can come up with the ideal plan for you prior to your wedding day. Tooth whitening is usually a no brainer for prospective brides. Combined with bonding or tooth movement this may be just what you need to put that smile on your face on your special day. My recommendation is that whatever you do just do it several days if not months before the wedding. I’ve seen some over the counter whitening agents cause some injuries to gums. The last thing you want on your wedding day is a self-inflicted wound.
