How to get the perfect wedding day smile

The months of planning and preparation are over and your big day has finally come. Everything has fallen into place and you just can’t stop smiling! That is exactly how your wedding day should be and to make sure those happy memories are captured in every photo, you need a first-class smile to go with it.

Specialist Orthodontist Dr Annika Patel from Ten Orthodontics has put together some top tips on how to get the perfect smile for your wedding day.


If you want a brighter smile…

Now that you’ve chosen your beautiful white wedding dress, you need a beautiful white smile. Getting professional teeth whitening from your dental practice is the best way to get fast and effective results for your wedding day. Power whitening treatments use a gel-activating light to brighten the teeth and give you a naturally whiter smile in as little as an hour to an hour and a half. This makes it that much easier for you to fit your whitening appointment in before the big day. Plus, you’re guaranteed to get professional results!


If you want your teeth to be more symmetrical…

If your front teeth are different sizes or misshapen it can affect the overall appearance of your smile. Veneers are a popular option for brides looking to get a smile makeover in time for their wedding day. Made from a thin layer of porcelain, the veneers are carefully sculpted to match your existing teeth and are placed over the misshapen ones to produce a beautiful and symmetrical smile. Once you see the results, you won’t be able to stop grinning for those wedding day photos!

Another treatment that can even out your smile for your wedding day is composite bonding. This is great if you have chipped or fractured teeth, but also if your front teeth are disproportioned. It uses a tooth-coloured resin to repair the teeth and improve the proportions of your smile. Even better, it can also improve the colour of your teeth in the process!


If you want straighter teeth…

If you have crooked, gapped or crowded teeth, you may want them straightened in time for your wedding day. We know what you’re thinking – braces are out of the question. Firstly, you don’t have two or more years to commit to braces because your wedding day is right around the corner! And secondly, you have enough wedding stress to last a lifetime without all the added orthodontic appointments.

What if we told you that modern braces are nothing like the big metal braces you imagined. They are discreet, extremely fast moving and so efficient you often don’t need as many orthodontic appointments either. Treatments such as Invisalign or Incognito are extremely popular options for brides. Not only are they very discreet but they are also able to straighten your teeth in a matter of months, so you can easily plan your treatment around your wedding day.
