Flash a Great “Wedding Smile” on the Big Day—and for Many Years to Come!

Posted .

For brides and grooms everywhere, photos and videos are planned as a way to document the beauty and excitement of their special event. Emotions of the big day are captured through images revealing eyes glistening with tears of joy—and smiles sparkling with pure happiness. That is, unless those smiles are tainted from the effects of poor dental health.

With all the planning that goes into a wedding, from gowns, tuxes, flowers and table settings to photographer choice and more, it always amazes me how some brides and grooms overlook one of the most important visual features: the quality of their smiles. If you found the retouched photo above startling or disturbing, then it certainly helped me get my point across!

The sad truth: a crooked, discolored, or incomplete smile can distract from the surrounding beauty, and forever mar otherwise stunning wedding memories.

At Advanced Cosmetic Dentistry, we specialize in working with brides, grooms, and their ceremony participants to ensure that everyone in the bridal party will be looking and smiling their very best on the big day. Our services include being able to provide permanent smile makeovers, and also temporary smile enhancement procedures that can deliver stunning results in just one or two office visits.

For brides & grooms fearing that a straighter, whiter smile may not be in their wedding plans, our abilities to quickly deliver the healthy smile nature intended can be a blessing they will be thankful for from their wedding day forward.

If you are planning (or are in) an upcoming wedding and have a less than preferred smile, I urge you to consider a free bridal smile consultation at our office today. Learning well in advance  which cosmetic dental options could be effective allows time to choose procedures that best fit your needs, and also allows time to get used to flashing your enhanced, healthier smile!

Because there are so many cosmetic dental procedures we can perform to enhance a smile, I thought it might be helpful to provide a quick overview of some of the most popular and effective:

Teeth whitening for a white…whiter…whitest bridal smile!

While there are many over-the-counter whitening remedies available today, the professional tooth whitening therapy we offer delivers a more noticeable and more lasting result. While over-the-counter whitening strips can provide some brightening results (if you already have straight, fairly white teeth) stained, very dull, and discolored teeth are best treated using the using custom fitted whitening tray therapy we offer. This process includes using a whitening gel with a strength level selected to best fit your needs.

Composite bonding to repair chipped, cracked, crooked, and misshapen teeth

While there are several procedures we can offer to correct a broken or badly-shaped tooth, composite bonding is a fast, non-invasive option that can deliver almost undetectable restoration results. Through this therapy, a fast-drying composite material that matches your natural tooth color and texture is bonded directly to the tooth in need of repair. The material is then speed-cured using a special ultraviolet light, shaped  and polished to provide a completely natural look and feel—in just one office visit!

“Instant braces” to correct a misaligned smile in just one visit.

Of course, there really is no such thing as braces that “instantly align” crooked teeth, but using a number of composite bonding techniques and advanced cosmetic dental skills, we can quickly create the illusion of a beautifully aligned smile for your wedding day. For patients in a need of (but with no time for) corrective braces, the contouring effect of multiple-tooth bonding offers a welcome alternative that will convince wedding guests—and the cameras!

Invisalign® braces to help get things aligned for your big day

In cases where protruding, indented, or twisted teeth are distracting from an otherwise pretty smile, corrective brace therapy using the Invisalign® invisible braces system may be an effective option. If you seek smile consultation far enough in advance of your wedding day, Invisalign braces could offer corrective benefits with minimal cosmetic alteration and lasting, natural results. The key to success here is calling for a consultation as early as possible.

Natural-looking dental veneers for stunning, lasting smile results.

Modern dental veneers can provide breathtaking transformation in just a few office visits. Through this therapy, custom shaped and colored veneers are specially crafted and then permanently adhered to the surfaces of your carefully-prepared teeth. Made of a cutting-aged porcelain material, veneers resurface the tooth with a thin but strong outer layer that can add length and volume to a worn or misshaped smile. Veneers are impervious to decay, resist discoloration, and provide immediate correction of dental flaws by using your existing, healthy dental anatomy as a “naturally anchored”’ foundation.

Dental crowns for lifelike tooth replacement

In cases where tooth loss is so severe that bonding or a veneer is not an option, a dental crown can deliver a comfortable, functional, natural tooth restoration. Sometimes referred to as “caps,” dental crowns encase a damaged or cracked tooth, providing a way of preserving the remaining tooth function while also delivering aesthetically pleasing results.
