Wedding Beauty Countdown : How to Prepare Your Teeth

Preparing for your big day can be quite an overwhelming task. There’s the venue, the food, the photographer, your guest list and of course, the cake, for you to worry about, but have you given any thought to your teeth? Wouldn’t you want your smile to shine brightly like a diamond on your big day?

After all, you will be flashing those pearly whites to hundreds (or even thousands) of guests and most importantly, that magical smile is going to be preserved in pictures for the rest of your life. It is one of the most important details yet it often gets overlooked. Here’s how you can prepare your teeth for your big day.

Teeth Whitening

You may want to consult your dentist before using any home teeth whitening kits. The last thing you want is to screw up a teeth whitening job right before your wedding. In addition to any helpful advice on the DIY teeth whitening products, your dentist may also be able to provide you with an in-office teeth whitening treatment, which will be much quicker.

Take home whitening treatment may need several applications before you start to notice significant results, so make sure you give yourself a few weeks' head start. We also recommend that you start your teeth whitening routine with a professional teeth cleaning beforehand. Just like a regular trip to the dentist, you can schedule a cleaning session to ensure your teeth are in perfect condition before the whitening treatment begins.

Cosmetic Dentistry

If you are not completely satisfied with the state of your teeth, you can always opt for cosmetic dentistry. The treatment may take longer but having the perfect smile on your wedding day will definitely be worth the time and effort so you might want to give yourself a few months leeway if you’re considering cosmetic dentistry. In consultation with you, your dentist will determine the best course of corrective action and determine if there are any underlying issues with your teeth. At Smilefocus, we have seen many brides and grooms who wish to close gaps between their teeth (diastema) as well as those who want to restore their chipped or missing teeth. Consult your dentist to determine the best course of action on making your teeth as perfect as possible for your big day!


Straighten Your Teeth

Many couples plan their weddings well ahead of time. Some even began planning as early as two years in advance. If you plan to have any major cosmetic or corrective surgery done to fix your teeth, you may want to consider leaving enough time for the treatment and healing period before your big day.

For those with very crooked teeth, it may require a lot of work and time to correct. If you want to have braces for your teeth, you may opt to go for a clear aligner in case your teeth are not fully straightened by the time you get married.

Invisalign and CFAST are two popular methods of moving teeth. They are cosmetically aesthetic options to straighten teeth, and depending on the correction required can achieve significant results relatively quickly.

While there aren’t many quick fixes in life in general, we are lucky to live in a world where we can have our teeth cleaned and whitened, cracks in our teeth filled, and our entire smiles made over in a relatively short amount of time. When you are thinking of your big day, don’t forget to think about your smile: It is what you will be doing the most of on that day, and you want it to be perfect!
