What bride doesn’t want to look her very best on her wedding day? Whether you’re planning a formal event, beachy nuptials, or planning to elope, there will be that one photo that defines the day – and your smile should reflect your happiness and joy. You are undoubtedly planning down to the very last detail, and that may include trips to the gym, a workout regimen with your bridesmaids, a strict diet, the best hair stylist, and a makeup artist. If all of these aesthetics are in focus, make sure your teeth are part of the wedding planning too. You have smile makeover options whether you’re getting married next week, next month, or next year.
A Smile Makeover in a Day
Perhaps you’ve reached the point in wedding prep where you’ve taken care of all the little things but neglected to tend properly to yourself. Thank goodness for last-minute smile makeovers! One of the most popular cosmetic dentistry solutions, professional teeth whitening is a hit with brides and grooms because it gives you the biggest bang for your buck in the shortest amount of time.
Even if your teeth are a little crooked or imperfect, whitening them will transform your smile, your face, and your overall appearance. Don’t attempt to DIY on this one – leave the whitening to the experts so you’re looking your best on the big day.
Suggestion: If you want to really show your best men and ladies how much you appreciate their support, give the bridal party gift that keeps on giving and offer them their own teeth whitening appointments!
A Smile Makeover in About a Month
When you’re looking for a cosmetic dentistry solution that is going to take care of multiple problems at once, porcelain veneers might be just the right procedure for you. Veneers correct misalignment, cracks, chips, and stains, and are custom-designed to lengthen and shape your teeth, all while giving you a natural-looking smile.
Prepless veneers offer exactly the same amazing benefits as standard veneers, but they are less-invasive and completed faster. Prepless veneers don’t require any special prepping of your teeth, and when you visit a dental office with an on-site lab, you reap the benefits of a practice that creates veneers in-house, which means if you’re not satisfied with the shape or shade of your custom-made veneers, they are easily and quickly edited so you don’t lose any time waiting for a new set to be returned from an off-site dental lab. Plus, veneers give you the celebrity smile you know you’ve envied – you’ll look amazing in wedding photos with your new smile.
A Smile Makeover in About a Year
While a year may seem like a long time to manage a smile makeover, we’re talking about Invisalign, the nearly invisible orthodontic solution that you can manage while you’re deciding on flowers, catering, place seating, and more. Invisalign usually takes about a year to complete, give or take, and this number depends on where your teeth are when you begin the treatment and how well you follow the Invisalign plan your dentist has laid out for you. Invisalign typically takes less time than traditional metal braces treatment, which means less time in the dentist’s chair, less time away from your wedding planning, and less cost overall.
Plus, Invisalign makes life convenient for you. And, some brides might consider this orthodontic treatment a fine accompaniment to their pre-wedding diet. Invisalign should only be removed for meals and cleaning your teeth, which means it is worn 20-22 hours a day. You should only drink water while wearing Invisalign so as not to stain the trays, and that means the mindless snacking or sipping on soda will have to stop if you want this orthodontic effort to be worth your while. You’ll be more conscious of what you’re putting in your mouth as you straighten your smile, and you’ll still have the convenience of being able to remove your orthodontic treatment when you’re taste-testing wedding cakes.
And, when your wedding day arrives, if you’re finishing up your Invisalign treatment and still wearing your aligners, you have the ability to remove them for the special event. It’s not recommend to leave Invisalign out for a lengthy period of time because your teeth will shift, but when it comes time for photos and lots of smiles, knowing that you have the ability to forget about teeth straightening for a few hours is a pleasure.
