It’s your wedding day. One of the most important days of your life. On this day you want to look and feel your best. One way to exhibit your confidence is through a beautiful white smile.

There are many tips and tricks to make sure that your smile is picture perfect on this special day. However, nothing beats proper dental care. With the help of your skilled and trusted dentist, that beautiful smile will highlight just how glowing you are on your wedding day.

First, schedule a comprehensive exam with x-rays. A healthy smile is a beautiful smile. Swollen gums and decay are not only unsightly, they challenge overall health. The first step toward a perfect wedding smile is a thorough check-up.

Next, follow up with necessary treatment. Teeth cleaning on a regular schedule, at least every six months, and restoration of decayed or broken teeth are important toward dental, oral, and overall health. It is a proactive way to ward off wedding day dental emergencies.

Third, remove your wisdom teeth. Third molars, or wisdom teeth, are often misaligned or stuck behind functioning molars. Difficult to clean, they are a source of decay and gum infection. There is generally just not enough room to accommodate wisdom teeth. It is common for these molars to flair up during times of stress and intense activity. Keep your special day stress and discomfort free. Have your wisdom teeth extracted months or years before your wedding.

Fourth, get it straight. There are a variety of ways to straighten your teeth including Invisalign, traditional orthodontics, bonding, or cosmetic veneers. Scheduling a cosmetic consultation with an experienced dentist or dental specialist well in advance of your wedding will allow time to consider the options and create your personal plan to design the perfect smile for your wedding.

Next, fix the shape. Chipped, stained, or misshaped teeth can be beautifully transformed in just two weeks with porcelain veneers. Schedule a cosmetic consultation with an experienced dentist. Ask for cosmetic imaging to view your new smile before treatment begins. Although the process takes just two weeks, schedule in advance to allow for basic dental preventative care, especially if it has been awhile since you last dental visit.

Finally, make it white. Whiter teeth are lovely and perfect for your wedding day. There are a variety of teeth whitening systems. At home whitening, in office whitening such as BriteSmile or Zoom, and for deeply stained teeth KOR Whitening System, which encompasses both at home and in-office procedures. Schedule a cosmetic consultation and ask for a before and after imaging of your “wedding white” smile.

With these small things, your smile will be as spectacularly beautiful on your big day. However, remember that it is important to care for your smile and visit your dentist regularly for routine dental exams.
