Smile Makeover Options Before Your Wedding Day

You and your fiance are planning your beautiful wedding day – but you’re still feeling self conscious about your smile. Help is here. Today we’re sharing the most common smile makeover treatments for weddings. Learn about cosmetic dentistry options to fix, reshape, whiten or move any pesky teeth that have you worried about your smile. Give yourself the knowledge and time to get the cosmetic dental care you want, and smile confidently on your wedding day!

Planning Your Wedding Day Dental Makeover

Minor dental imperfections or major dental issues can all be corrected before your wedding day – it’s just a matter of time. Depending on your desired outcome, it can take several weeks or months, so schedule a personal consultation with your dentist before you start shopping for a dress or picking wedding colours on Pinterest.

If your oral health is ship shape, you can begin the cosmetic treatment of your choice without delay.

If you have bleeding gums or persistent bad breath, these may be signs of gingivitis or gum disease. If so, you will need to undergo “deep cleaning” for periodontal disease before any cosmetic work can begin. Your health comes first.

Here is a guide to help you plan your smile makeover based on your scheduled wedding date.

No Set Date: If you don’t have a date set yet, you can complete any cosmetic or restorative dental treatment in time, including:

  • preventative dental care such as dental cleanings + checkup
  • any fillings that need attention before your busy wedding plans & honeymoon
  • dental implants to replace missing teeth
  • crowns or veneers to fix chipped teeth
  • Invisalign clear braces to straighten moderate to advanced orthodontic problems
  • gum reshaping to reduce the appearance of a “gummy” smile
  • gum grafts to correct receeding gums- or gums pulling away from the teeth
  • tooth whitening & brightening

… and anything else. Schedule a consultation with your dentist to get your personalized treatment plan and timeline.

12-18 Months:  You have plenty of time to complete just about any dental treatment, with the exception of advanced orthodontic cases. Crowns, veneers, implants, gum reshaping, and whitening are all easy to fit into this timeline.

Most minor to moderate Invisalign treatment timelines fall into the 12-18 month range. The sooner you see your dentist, the sooner you will know how long your own treatment goals will take, and the sooner you can get started.

It’s also a great time to book your wedding videographer – we like Reel Love Story in Bowmanville. They often book 12 or more months in advance. You only need your date, venue and a deposit to get your first choice of videographer booked. Tackle this today and ensure your fairytale day is captured by someone who can weave magic with video.

9-12 Months: You can enjoy all the smile makeover options listed in the 12-18 month category but when it comes to Invisalign, there may be some limits. Within a 9-12 month timeframe, Invisalign can still do wonders to close gaps, fix spacing issues and correct minor crowding in teeth. Some minor Invisalign cases take just 6-9 months. Speak to your dentist today and ask them what can be done about your smile within your timeline. They will be happy to help you prepare for your special day.

Now is also a great time to find your makeup artist and plan a trial make up day for yourself and your bridal party. It’s also a great time to try semi permanent lashes to see if you like the way they look! They will look fabulous for your engagement photos and your Jack & Jill party. False eyelashes may affect your make up artist plans, so let him or her know if you plan to don the gorgeous falsies for your wedding day. For a top notch professional bridal makeup artist in Whitby, that specializes in airbrush makeup or for DIY makeup workshops, check out the amazing Nicole Richards.

6 Months: The window for dental implants is closing, because healing time for bone can take several months. You can potentially begin treatment and wear a temporary crown over your implant for your wedding day, but it might ruin (or add to) the fun if it falls off. It all depends on your outlook. If you want to be sure your new tooth is solidly anchored in place, give yourself 6+ months to complete dental implant treatment.

The window for Invisalign treatment is closing as well. While you could begin Invisalign treatment and make great progress before your wedding day, you may find it too much to tackle so close to your wedding day (there’s so much to do!). You may prefer to leave it until after the wedding & honeymoon.

Crowns & veneers for chipped teeth, as well as gum reshaping or gum grafting are all great options to undertake now and transform your smile. Most take just 3-8 weeks to fully heal.

Tooth whitening can be performed now as well.

If you are receiving new crowns or veneers, you will want to whiten teeth first, then match the colour of your new crowns to your whitened teeth for a uniform, picture perfect smile!

What To Expect: Your wedding day, your smile, and your smile makeover are all unique – no two are exactly alike. Your dentist will explain your options and what to expect during the treatment you select. Call now to begin the process.

And be sure to share this post with your bridal party, friends and family who may want to spruce up their smile for your big day. Our friendly team at Winchester Dental in Brooklin would be happy to help your entire bridal party polish up their pearly whites!  For any nervous nellies, we offer dental sedation options in our bright, spacious and comfortable office.
