Wedding Planning Should Include Dental Visits

Friday, July 20th, 2012, 9:03 pm

There are lots of things to do when planning a wedding but both brides and grooms need to remember to add dental visits to their to-do lists.

Most brides and grooms visit the dentist for tooth whitening before the wedding but planning to stop by for a quick in-office whitening at the last minute might not be the best idea. Plan your visit well in advance and make sure you have scheduled a dental hygiene visit right before you want to whiten your teeth. Teeth that are covered in plaque won’t whiten evenly.

At your hygiene appointment you should talk about your goals for a whiter smile. Unfortunately, some types of tooth discoloration cannot be bleached away but there are other options available.

If you discover that a tooth whitening treatment won’t give you the smile you want in all of those wedding photos you may want to consider dental veneers. Veneers are very thin porcelain restorations that are can be used to create your dream smile. Teeth that are misshapen, discolored or crooked can be beautiful in only a couple of visits. Dental veneers are created especially for your smile in a dental laboratory so during your first visit your teeth will be prepared and temporary veneers placed on your teeth. The veneers are received from the laboratory in 10-14 days and you will leave your final visit with a beautiful smile — ready for the wedding photographer.
