Your wedding day may be one of the most joyous occasions of your life. You’ll want to look your best, and that includes your smile. A dentist can make sure that your smile is ready for the ceremony by using the following five treatment methods. 

5 Ways a Dentist Can Fix Your Smile for Your Wedding 

1. Invisalign®  

For crooked teeth, consider Invisalign. As plastic retainers customized to fit your mouth, Invisalign straightens teeth without metal braces. You’d likely need to start using them at least a year before the wedding to perfect your smile. Also, you can remove them whenever you want, so you don’t have to wear them during the ceremony. 

2. Crowns, Veneers, or Bonding

You can also cap them with dental crowns made from porcelain, metal, or porcelain fused to metal, which protect your teeth from further damage. To be ready for your wedding, get these procedures done at least a month in advance. 

3. Dental Implants 

If you have missing teeth, you should consider dental implants. They consist of a screw embedded in your gums and an abutment fashioned from porcelain or metal. This way, your jaw can be straightened, and you’ll have a beautiful smile.  

4. Sealants 

Created from resin, sealants protect your teeth from damage and decay, preventing food particles and plaque from sticking to them. Your dentist can apply them after a teeth cleaning. The sooner you receive them, the longer your teeth can be shielded from harm. 

5. Teeth Whitening 

Perhaps you want your teeth to look whiter and more luminous. In that case, ask your dentist for a teeth whitening procedure. It only takes about an hour, but if you need multiple treatments to achieve the shade you want, get the first one at least a couple weeks in advance.
