A nearlywed plans and prepares for their big day for months, ensuring every detail incorporates their exact vision of what their wedding should be. They start by finding the perfect outfit, photographer, and venue, and ends when they are confident, radiant, and flawless from the smile down.

How to Get the Perfect Wedding Day Smile

Achieving the perfect smile is not difficult, although it can take time. The following tips are among the ideas that can help marriers achieve a smile they are proud of.

Start Early

Schedule a consultation with a cosmetic dentist several weeks before the wedding day. Cosmetic dentistry services focus on the appearance of the teeth and can correct issues that impact confidence.

Cosmetic dentists offer services including:

  • Teeth Whitening
  • Invisalign
  • Veneers
  • Smile makeovers
  • Composite bonding
  • Gum contouring

Most marriers utilize teeth whitening services. This in-office procedure takes about an hour, although it provides long-lasting benefits for up to one year. Teeth whitening removes stains, discolorations, and other imperfections, leaving one with a confident smile.

Brides, grooms and marriers with crooked teeth may appreciate Invisalign as their corrective procedure. Invisalign is a great alternative to traditional braces. They correct problems with crooked teeth faster and more conveniently than braces.

Veneers address problems like gaps between the teeth, chipped teeth, and discolorations that whitening cannot remove. The thin, wafer-like shells are fitted over the front of the damaged tooth for a natural-looking, long-lasting fix.

Dental crowns are sometimes called caps. Dentists use crowns to restore a tooth’s appearance and functioning when damage affects a large area of the tooth. Over time, crowns correct issues such as decay or tooth fractures.

Gum contouring service is another cosmetic procedure that improves your smile’s appearance. People with “gummy” smiles often use gum contouring to correct the problem. It also works well to correct uneven gum lines.

The Smile Makeover is a treat for brides and grooms experiencing multiple issues with the appearance of their teeth. The Smile Makeover combines several procedures into one package, ensuring you get the confident look you want on your wedding day. Each person picks the procedures in their smile makeover, ensuring it’s tailored to their exact needs.

Brides, grooms and marriers should visit a cosmetic dentist before their big day when achieving a beautiful smile is important to them. It’s the easiest way to correct issues that impact their smile and restore confidence. 

During the consultation, the dentist will examine your mouth and discuss the services best suited for your needs. You can choose the service(s) you want the most and discuss any of your dental concerns with the dentist at that time.

Dental procedures like those mentioned above correct many problems that impact you smile, although visiting the dentist is just the start of the journey. The following tips can further help brides, grooms and marriers find their perfect smile for an unforgettable wedding day.

Maintain Good Oral Hygiene

Brushing and flossing twice per day removes dirt and grime from the teeth, reducing staining and discoloration, as well as potential dental concerns. Mouthwash can help remove stains from the teeth while it freshens the breath.

Schedule twice-yearly appointments with a dentist. Regular checkups can diagnose dental health problems before they become huge burdens.

Avoid Eating Certain Foods

Particularly important after utilizing services from a cosmetic dentist, avoiding certain foods can help cease staining, discoloration, yellowing, and other problems that can affect the teeth’s appearance. 

Avoid or minimize eating foods that stain the teeth, which include:

  • Soda
  • Tea
  • Coffee
  • Red wine
  • Hard candy
  • Tomatoes
  • Chocolate

Drink water after consuming these foods. It can remove plaque that gets stuck to the teeth. Brushing can also reduce the risks of dental imperfections.

A dentist can provide a more thorough list of foods brides, grooms and marriers should avoid to keep their teeth beautifully white before the big day.

Makeup Choices Affect Your Smile

Many marriers utilize the services of a makeup artist on their wedding day. Those who do not may be surprised to learn how much their makeup choices affect their smile. The following tips can ensure you choose the right makeup for an amazing wedding day smile.

  • Creamy lipsticks elevate a one’s smile. Shades with blue undertones make teeth appear whiter, while orange and brown undertones emphasize imperfections in the teeth.
  • Applying gloss or highlighter to the cupid’s brow can create the illusion of thicker, fuller lips and draw attention to them.
  • Applying concealer around the mouth area will draw attention to a person’s smile while hiding their imperfections.

Practice Smiling

Practicing your smile before your wedding day can help you achieve a natural looking, confident smile. Most marriers practice their smile in the mirror and with family and friends multiple times before the big day. Do not be an exception. 

Along with practicing your smile and getting advice from those around you, try the following practice tips.

  • Take selfies posing with different smiles. You can take multiple selfies and see how you look on the camera. Take selfies in different rooms, in different lighting, and use different angles to find your best look.
  • Embrace life and all its happiness. When you are happy, you naturally smile and a natural smile reflects in everyday situations and on the camera. Plus, happy people smile more often. Remember, your wedding day is an important event, but it’s also about togetherness, love, and building a future together. Focus on the moment more so than how your smile looks.
