These days, it’s become more important than ever for brides to have a beautiful, healthy smile. It makes sense. White is traditional for brides, and it’s the most unforgiving color for our smiles. Even a mildly stained smile, or one with gaps, worn teeth, or small teeth can look significantly off by contrast. And with the sheer number of pictures and eyes on one, it makes sense to take advantage of cosmetic dentistry to get a smile that will make a bridge comfortable and confident on her wedding day.
Unfortunately, women who don’t plan ahead might end up having to delay their wedding if they really want to get the results they’re looking for. If you want to have the beautiful smile for your wedding day, it’s time to start planning now.
Dental Implants: 1 to 9 Months
Dental implants are probably the most variable cosmetic dentistry treatment. The reason is the same simple reason why we can’t tell you the cost of dental implants before a consultation: your situation is unique.
For people with good oral health in an ideal situation, it’s possible to give you dental implants with a cosmetic crown in just one day. But when you add in time for planning and recovery, it can’t realistically be completed in less than a month.
However, for some people, we can’t place a dental crown on the implant right away. It might take 3-4 months to heal before we can place implants. Other times, we might have to address gum disease or place a bone graft, which can add another 3-4 months to the procedure.
If you have one or more missing teeth you want to replace before your wedding next summer, it is definitely time to start planning now.
Six Month Smiles: 6 Months (!)
While traditional orthodontics usually takes more than a year to give results, Six Month Smiles can give you a straight, attractive smile in an average of six months. It’s amazing how well it works, and the reliability of the timetable is amazing, too.
Plus, Six Month Smiles requires shorter office visits than traditional orthodontics, which is a godsend when you are so busy with wedding details!
Porcelain Veneers Smile Makeover: 1 Month
Fortunately, there are cosmetic dentistry procedures that can give great results quickly. Veneers can be used to give you a beautiful smile with just one procedure. You can achieve all these goals:
- Whiten teeth
- Close gaps in smile
- Straighten teeth
- Repair chips
- Build up small teeth
- Reshape unattractive teeth
With just one procedure, you can address almost any cosmetic concerns you may have about your smile, and be ready for your wedding.
Teeth Whitening: 2-3 Weeks
If your teeth are just discolored, you can usually achieve a bright beautiful smile in just a few weeks. While other systems may take months to achieve results, or may work quickly but not give you the whiteness you want, KöR teeth whitening is both fast and effective. With just 14-21 nights of wear, you can have a bright and beautiful smile.
Of course, allow time to get an appointment and have your custom trays made.
Don’t Forget the Grooms
Although grooms traditionally wear more forgiving black tuxedos, they also may not be comfortable with their smile, especially if the bride is getting her smile redone. It makes sense for both people to get their smile redone so they can start their lives together with matching beautiful smiles.
