Your wedding day is one day when you want to look and feel your best. You spend a lot of time and money organizing every last detail, so the day is perfect, but when the photographer asks you to smile, will you panic or beam confidently? If you feel self-conscious about your smile for any reason, your wedding day is the ideal opportunity for a wedding day smile makeover.
Leave Plenty of Time to Begin Planning Your Smile Makeover
The best time to start planning your smile makeover in Whitby is soon after you get engaged. It’s worth just having an initial consultation to discover your options and to begin planning, even if you only require minor modifications to your smile. If you leave it too close to the actual day, you may not be able to have all the treatments you desire, and there is no leeway in case anything needs adjusting to get it absolutely perfect.
By leaving as much time as possible, you can make sure everything is done correctly and you can give yourself plenty of time to enjoy the process rather than rushing through it at a time when you are most likely busy with all your other wedding day preparations. Also, many factors can impact a treatment outcome such as the condition of your teeth and gums, and whether you have existing dental problems that require treatment to obtain optimal oral health. Regardless of what you have in mind, there’s almost something that a good cosmetic dentist in Oshawa can do to improve your smile. One of the most popular treatments is teeth whitening.
A Bright White Smile Always Looks Fabulous
Teeth whitening is a treatment that is very popular before a wedding and which can banish unsightly stains caused by lifestyle habits such as smoking, drinking tea and coffee and acidic soft drinks and wine. The good news is that teeth whitening is relatively quick to complete, and we offer in-office Zoom whitening that can take as little as an hour. Another option is a custom-made home whitening kit that will brighten your teeth in a couple of weeks and which can also be used to maintain the results of an in-office treatment. Teeth whitening is great if your teeth are in relatively good shape, but otherwise, you might want to consider restorative work.
Restoring Your Smile
Restorative treatments can mend broken, chipped, or cracked teeth and one of the quickest options is dental bonding. Tooth coloured composite resin is bonded directly onto the tooth surface to create a more cosmetically perfect appearance. Porcelain veneers are another popular treatment, consisting of thin shells of porcelain custom-made to cover the front surfaces of teeth. Teeth that are more badly damaged or extensively decayed can be covered entirely with a dental crown. The most cosmetically pleasing dental crowns in Ajax are made entirely from porcelain, and Margolian Dentistry can even create same-day crowns using digital technology.
Other Treatments to Consider
Some treatments will take longer to complete but are well worth the effort, such as Invisalign invisible braces to straighten teeth. Treatment can take anywhere from a few months to a year to complete but could give you results that will last for life. If you are missing some teeth entirely, one option is to have a dental bridge but it’s worth thinking about dental implants. A dental implant is a sophisticated treatment that artificially replaces a real tooth root with a small titanium or zirconium post, and which can support a brand-new dental crown. It’s a procedure that can take several months to complete but which could give you a wonderful smile to start your married life.
