If you are a bride or groom anticipating your walk down the aisle, it is understandable that you want to look and feel your best on the big day. However, teeth that are damaged, discolored or simply unattractive can detract from your appearance and hinder your confidence on your wedding day.
Luckily, Dr. Bruce Bosler of Bosler Implant and Cosmetic Dentistry offers several cosmetic solutions to revitalize your smile and help you look as happy as you feel. If you want to get your smile “wedding ready,” he recommends you visit him about 3 to 6 months prior to the occasion to discuss your specific concerns and explore the available treatment options.
Quickly Brighten Dull Teeth with Chairside Whitening
Teeth whitening treatment is one of the most popular pre-wedding cosmetic treatments. Many brides and grooms opt for at-home whitening with over-the-counter whitening gels or strips, but in-office, chair-side whitening is quicker, safer and more effective. Zoom! in-office whitening lightens teeth an average of eight shades in less than an hour.
Conceal Aesthetic Imperfections in the Teeth
Veneers are thin sheets or layers of porcelain placed over the surface of the teeth (usually the front teeth) to fix their color, shape, size or spacing. Because veneers are custom-created to match the visual characteristics of the surrounding teeth, veneers require a few weeks to design and deliver.
Cover Up Cracked or Damaged Teeth
Teeth with cracks, chips or extensive surface damage or staining can benefit from the placement of dental crowns. Crowns recreate the entire exterior of the tooth and are custom-matched to the size and shape of the surrounding teeth. Like veneers, crowns require at least a few weeks to fit, construct and place.
Additional Tips for a Beautiful Smile
There are other things you can do on your own to promote a healthy and beautiful smile.
For example, avoid dark or colored beverages like wine or coffee that can stain the teeth. Swap those beverages out for water, which keeps you hydrated, lubricates the mouth and makes your skin look radiant.
Eat fibrous fruits and vegetables, like apples and carrots; these foods are not only healthy, but they can help to exfoliate your teeth and remove surface stains.
If you are a bride-to-be, pick out a lipstick shade that makes your teeth look brighter and whiter. It could be a vivid red, pink or coral color. Go to your favorite beauty counter at a local department store and ask a makeup artist to select an appropriate shade for you. Keep your lips moisturized by regularly applying lip balm.
