Cosmetic Dentistry and the Bride-to-Be

Cosmetic_DentistryCouples who are getting married spend a lot of time planning ahead so that everything is perfect on their wedding day. One “vendor” to consider adding to your wedding preparation list is a practitioner of cosmetic dentistry, because photos of your wedding are kept and shared for decades, if not generations. You and your family will be looking at these pictures over and over. Having a confident, attractive smile on your face in these pictures will bring joy, and it will be an investment that withstands the test of time.

Here is a list of things that cosmetic dentistry can do to enhance your wedding-day smile, organized by how long you have until your wedding.

How Cosmetic Dentistry Can Help The Bride-to-Be

  • Short Term (1-2 months): If you only have weeks before you are to be married, you can still have your cosmetic dentist hide minor flaws with dental bonding, or you can have your teeth whitened. Whitening your teeth only takes a visit or two at your dentist’s office, is safe and effective when supervised by a cosmetic dentistry practitioner, and will dramatically enhance your smile’s brightness.
  • Medium Term (4-6 months): If you have several months before your wedding, and your dentist recommends it, you can consider porcelain veneers to fix a number of minor issues with tooth color, rotation and positioning. If you have a tooth with significant structural or appearance issues, a crown can often protect the tooth, while also enhancing its appearance.
  • Long Term (12 months or longer): If you have crooked teeth, braces are not just for teenagers anymore! Invisalign braces can correct more serious tooth positioning and bite issues in as little as a year, and are not visually noticeable to the casual observer.

The place to begin for all of these options is with a visit to your cosmetic dentist – he or she can consult with you on your smile makeover needs, and create a plan that will leave you with a stunning smile on your special day.

“An investment in cosmetic dentistry services before your wedding day can payoff in terms of wonderful photos of your special day, and a lifetime of great memories,” says Dr. Carol Ford, a cosmetic dentist who practices in central Phoenix.
