One thing that every bride and groom strives for is to look picture perfect on the big day. From head to toe, couples spend thousands on the way they look. When it comes time to snap those wedding photos, you’re sure to shine, but will your teeth?

Whitening and Brightening

The most common non-invasive cosmetic service is teeth whitening. Although DIY kits are available through health and beauty suppliers, a professional brightening is best. For dark, stained teeth your dentist may recommend a bite-tray treatment or laser whitening.

According to The Academy of General Dentistry, home bite-tray treatments take 2 to 4 weeks to see results, while in-office bleaching typically takes one 45-minute session. Whiten one month before your wedding day for best results.

Tooth Filing and Contouring

Contouring isn’t just a makeup technique; it’s also a dentistry procedure used to define misshapen teeth. For low-maintenance smiles requiring only a few minor tweaks, tooth contouring is the perfect solution. It’s like nail filing for your teeth, which means no more jagged edges, tiny chips, or pointy ends on your mouth. The contouring process smooths small imperfections painlessly and without the need for intensive work.

Contouring might leave your teeth sensitive, so it’s best not to do it too soon before the wedding.

Filling Spaces with Bonding

Bonding is a synthetic dental product that is adhered to your teeth and cured for permanency. Dentists recommend bonding for various outcomes, including:

  • A small tooth being built up to match the rest
  • Minor gaps filled by adding bonding to nearby teeth
  • Rebuilding worn down teeth
  • Cracks and scratches filled and smoothed out
  • Repairing chips

Bonding takes place in one sitting and doesn’t normally require anesthetic.

Covering Unsightly Teeth

Sometimes, more than shaping and whitening services are required. Couples may then choose to completely cover one or several teeth using these methods.

Crowns and Caps

A crown is a tooth-shaped covering that goes over your natural tooth. These are used in extreme cases when a tooth is damaged beyond repair. The crown, also known as a cap, looks like a perfect tooth. For brides and grooms with major cracks or decayed teeth, this is the best solution.

Veneers

Veneers, like crowns, cover the teeth with a fabricated tooth-like product. Veneers are made using porcelain or other thin materials. They are less destructive than crowns to the underlying teeth, making them a great alternative. Your dentist will recommend this service for your wedding if you have:

  • Slightly crooked teeth
  • Major discoloration
  • Weak or chipping enamel

Getting Wedding Ready

There are many things to worry about as your special day approaches, but your teeth shouldn’t be one of them. If you’re considering cosmetic dental procedures, speak to your dentist about which options are best for you.
