Congratulations—you’re engaged! It’s a stupendous (and hectic) time in your life as you plan your upcoming wedding.
When you’ve taken the biggest step of your life and are ready to start planning your wedding, you need to feel confident that you look great – not only on your wedding day but also in the pictures that serve as memories for years to come. Your smile is such a big part of your wedding day, and you need confidence in how it looks. Fortunately, here at Lomita Torrance Dental office in Torrance near Lomita, we have years of experience in treatments that help you improve your smile for your big day.
You want to look your best for the big day—which means you may be dieting, exercising or making changes to your hairstyle and makeup. Be sure, though, to consider another important part of your appearance—your teeth and gums.
Here are a few options that could help your wedding day smile shine even more.
The perfect wedding is incomplete without the perfect smile. Weddings are also one of the most photographed days of our lives. Having a beautiful smile is an easy but important way to make sure your wedding day is as beautiful as you have always dreamed.
From whitening to straightening and more, there are dozens of ways to make your smile bright and beautiful for your wedding day.
The most important part of getting your wedding day smile is planning ahead. Schedule a full cleaning and exam with X-rays months before your wedding. This gives us the time we need to complete any treatments before your wedding day. Many whitening treatments cannot be performed if there are any signs of gum disease, and we require ample time to treat the problem before we can perform your cosmetic procedures.
Start with a Routine Check-Up
A routine check-up is a great way to catch any dental problems. If you have concerns about cavities, fluoridation, tooth pain, or other dental problems, we can address these at this time as well.
Your check-up is also the perfect opportunity to discuss the timeline and cost for other cosmetic dental treatments you may be interested in before your wedding. Schedule a check-up as soon as you have finalized a wedding date.
Perfection Is a Goal Not a Reality
A healthy, great looking smile means that when you smile nothing distracts or detracts from you overall appearance. A great smile enhances your overall appearance. It is possible that you might just have a great smile already, but you don’t smile because you are self-conscious of something. Others do not look at us as we do. Teeth don’t have to be perfect for you to have a great smile. Acceptance of what you have is often the easiest way to improve your smile.
As crazy as it may sound, no matter how your smile looks, you should practice smiling. A natural relaxed smile is not that easy for most of us to produce on demand. That is what you will be doing for the photographer. Begin your practicing by looking into a mirror. Once you start to get good at it you should practice anytime during your day. An added benefit of this is that smiling can reduce stress-induced hormones and can actually make you feel better.
Whitening Your Teeth for a Beautiful Smile
Perhaps one of the dental treatments most people think of first before their wedding is teeth whitening. It is well-known that bright, white smiles are considered to be more beautiful and bring out the best features in your face.
For brides, tooth whitening is essential: there is no better way to show off the color of your wedding dress than to match it to your beautiful white teeth.
In-office tooth whitening has many advantages that are not offered by at-home whitening treatments. Whitening treatments provided in our Torrance Dental Office use specialized dental trays and are stronger than over-the-counter whitening treatments. It is also less damaging to the enamel.
Invisalign: The Discreet Solution for Perfectly Straight Teeth
Every bride dreams of having a clear white smile with straight teeth on her wedding day. Whether male or female, bride or groom, the appeal of having perfectly straight teeth is hard to deny. Fixing crooked teeth is the perfect way to achieve the wedding smile of your dreams.
Traditional metal braces are the most common solution for straightening and evening of the teeth. However, they are visually unappealing and make the mouth look awkward and uncomfortable. They also can take upwards of several years to work effectively. Few brides or grooms want to have the appearance of having metal braces for their wedding day, and fewer still are willing to wait several years to have their braces off before getting married.
However, there is good news for those wanting a perfect smile for their big day without the unsightly appearance of braces: Invisalign is a cutting-edge dental technology that allows the teeth to be straightened without being noticeable to the naked eye.
Invisalign dental straighteners are constructed of a clear plastic material that is specially fitted for you and the specific anatomy of your teeth and mouth. They are disposable and should be swapped out approximately once every week for the next pair. They are a simple, beautiful, and cost-effective solution for getting straight teeth quickly.
Still, don’t want braces? Then discuss other cosmetic dental options with our team.
Consider Veneers Prior to Your Wedding
Veneers are thin shells, typically constructed from porcelain, that cover the outer aspect of the teeth. Traditional porcelain veneers require initial reduction of the teeth before being glued onto the surface of the teeth, while LUMINEERS are a different style of veneer which does not require pre-reduction.
Veneers improve the appearance of the teeth in a number of ways. They make the teeth look even and natural in appearance, and can disguise chipped, broken teeth or gaps between the teeth. They can eliminate discoloration of the teeth and make them look straighter, brighter, and more even than ever before.
