A wedding day is the opportunity for every man and woman to feel like a Hollywood star and bask in adoration for one moment in time. Like a star at a premiere, you will be photographed, cheered and celebrated as one of two people who can do no wrong. It is a tall order to fill, but bride and groom alike will go through the grooming typically reserved for actors and royalty. Having that perfect smile is a big part of the mystique. Here are some of the most popular techniques employed for wedding day smiles.
Have you ever seen a leading lady with broken teeth? Unless the actress is playing a character who has fallen on hard times, this scenario is simply unlikely for a Hollywood film. Dental bonding helps correct the damage that little chips make when looking at a tooth. Once materials are bonded to your teeth, they are in place as part of the natural substance. It takes a minimum of 30 minutes to correct each tooth, so allot a good part of your day if you plan on getting several teeth fixed. Still, bonding only takes one visit and requires no recovery time.
Both composite and porcelain veneers are solutions for a variety of dental issues. If you are unhappy with tooth spacing or coloring, veneers deliver the appearance of perfectly formed, white teeth in a few visits. You won’t need to gear up much for the process: veneers are added without any drilling in many cases. Dentists simply add to your teeth without any prep work. Porcelain veneers are terrific because they are very much like real tooth enamel and last a long time. Composite veneers are a secondary choice.
Crowns and Dental Bridges
A dental crown (also known as a cap) is a cover for a significantly decayed tooth that can no longer be filled conventionally. In the case of a lost tooth surrounded by two teeth worthy of caps, a crown-and-bridge combination is recommended by dentists as a functional and attractive solution. Dentists can modify the color of a bridge so it matches the teeth around it. Quality work will add stability, comfort and beauty to your set of teeth. It is an indispensable part of wedding day smile construction.
Absolutely white teeth match the wedding gown and white shirt or jacket in a groom’s tuxedo. Ask your dentist about permanent whitening treatments that provide a sparkle to your teeth for years into the future.
