Preparing the Perfect Smile for Your Wedding Day

The wedding day is one of the best moments you wouldn’t dream of ruining. Whether you’re a bride or groom, you’ll want to be at the top of your game, especially your appearance.

That’s why it’s good to plan, as some things require more time and planning. One area many people tend to forget is their dental appearance. The smile will complete your makeup, so it should be perfect.

So, how do you ensure your smile is perfect?

Well, the best place to start is at a cosmetic dentist clinic. If you don’t know of one, ask your friends or look online for reviews. An experienced dentist will inform you of various procedures and treatments that can enhance your smile.

Here are some of the effective techniques your cosmetic dentist may recommend so your wedding day pictures can appear perfect.

Dental cleanings

The first thing a dentist will recommend is to get your teeth professionally cleaned to remove unsightly stains and freshen up your breath. Make sure to schedule your appointment with a dentist hygienist ahead of time to avoid being locked out.

The dental cleaning procedure takes 45 to 60 minutes, but you may need several sessions depending on how much tartar and stain there are in your teeth.

Teeth whitening

If you’re not comfortable with the color of your teeth, bleaching may be the best solution for you. A professional dentist will give you a quicker and safer whitening agent than the “at-home” kits.

Teeth whitening may take 60 minutes, and you may need to go for several sessions before you achieve that bright, white appearance you’re looking for.

Keep in mind that sometimes you may get infrequent thermal sensitivity after whitening by bleaching for one to four days.


If you’d like to change the shape of your teeth or even close an excessively big gap between them, dental bonding may be the right solution for you. The procedure involves using high-tech material that bonds with your teeth to rectify a gap or oddly-shaped teeth.

The procedure may take some time to complete as each tooth may require 45-60 minutes. After bonding, you shouldn’t chew hard foods.


A veneer is an effective and quicker way to change the color of unsightly or darkened teeth for a day or several hours. To put them, your dentist will reduce the outer enamel shell of the tooth and replace them with a glass-like material. Make sure to allow veneers to be tested several weeks before your wedding day to ensure the finals are the right size. Veneers will give your teeth the color and look you desire.

Dental implants

Your cosmetic dentist may recommend dental implants if you have a missing tooth. Dental implants consist of a replacement of teeth root, whereby an implant is drilled into the jaw to support the attached crown. The procedure may take 3 to 12 months, and thus prior planning is needed.

All the above dental procedures are meant to rectify your teeth’ color, shape, or appearance.
