Wedding season is just around the corner! If your wedding day is coming up, you probably have already taken care of most of the wedding essentials, such as picking out your dress, contacting the caterer and booking the venue. However, one of the most important things about your wedding day will be the photos. Wedding photos will capture the happiness of the day, so it’s essential that you have a perfect smile in every photo. Whether you are concerned about yellowing, missing teeth or damaged teeth, Trailhead Dental can help prepare your smile for your wedding day. Here are five ways a prosthodontist can help you have a perfect wedding smile.
Cleaning and Whitening
First and most importantly, you should schedule an appointment to have a cleaning and an exam as early as possible. Some cosmetic dental treatments, such as dental implants, take time to heal, so visiting the dentist as soon as possible allows you the time to have any other dental work done before the wedding. A teeth whitening treatment is one of the most popular dental procedures that brides and grooms have done before their wedding day.
If you have cavities and are worried about getting them filled because you don’t want glimmer’s of silver coming through your smile in the wedding photos, talk to your prosthodontist about natural colored fillings, which are fillings that are made to blend in with the natural color of your teeth.
A chipped tooth or a gap in your teeth can quickly ruin a smile. Dental bonding is a quick as well as an inexpensive procedure designed to repair imperfections. In most situations, dental bonding can be done in just one visit. For a bonding procedure, your prosthodontist will blend a resin material that will be used to repair the gap or chip, then shape the bonding material to your teeth and polish it to match your other teeth. The bonding material used will match the color of your teeth, so it can even be done after a whitening treatment.
Dental veneers are thin, porcelain overlays that are placed over the front side of teeth. Dental veneers are the ideal solution if you have damaged teeth due to medication, severe staining, injury or inadequate dental care. The veneers are ultra-thin and permanently attached to your natural teeth.
You don’t have to worry about missing teeth standing in the way of your smile on your wedding day. Whether you have one or multiple missing teeth, dental implants are the perfect solution. Dental implants are permanent replacement teeth that not only look but feel like your natural teeth. There are a few different options when it comes to dental implants, and it may take several months to complete the procedure, so it is highly recommended that you begin at least six months in advance if you are considering dental implants before your wedding day.
