Wedding season – Get the perfect smile for your big day!

A person’s wedding day is often one of the most important days of their life. Attention and time have been given to choosing the perfect venue, invitations and outfits for the big day but have you given any thought to the finer details, such as your smile?

Your smile is never likely to be more on show than it is on your wedding day as people snap photos of the happy occasion and it’s important to feel confident about your smile from all angles so that this confidence can shine through.

Whether you have broken, chipped, dis-coloured, missing or crooked teeth, there is an option to remedy this. Discreet, cost efficient, painless and quicker treatment times than you imagined are available at your fingertips.

Teeth Whitening

Teeth whitening is a safe procedure when carried out by a dental professional. It is a process where the tooth’s discolouration is whitened to a lighter shade by several shades. Our dentist can offer an examination to establish the cause and type of tooth discoloration you have and will then proceed to offer you information on various types of tooth whitening.

Teeth Straightening

There are various teeth straightening options on the market nowadays. These include Six Month Smiles, Invisalign, Inman Aligner and CFast. Below we explore these options a little further.

Six Month Smiles

Six Month Smiles is a teeth straightening option, which focuses only on those teeth that show when you smile. It uses fixed clear brackets and tooth-coloured wires to straighten the teeth, so is less noticeable than traditional wired braces and brackets.

Invisalign

This is perfect if you do not want to wear braces with wires and brackets. It involves a series of discreet plastic, custom-made, clear aligners, which are worn over the teeth. They are suitable to straighten out the top and bottom teeth. They are very effective and are barely visible.

Inman Aligner

These are fast working, providing significant results in just 6-16 weeks. They focus on those teeth, which are visible and are suitable for cases where there is mild to moderate crowding of the front teeth.
The aligner consists of a simple removable appliance, which works by incorporating nickel titanium coil springs that power a pair of aligner bows. The inner bow pushes forward, and the outer bow pulls back on the front teeth. This gentle squeezing movement guides your teeth into the correct position.

CFast

CFast can be applied to the front or back of the teeth if you would like an even more discreet way of straightening your teeth. The nickel titanium wires are placed on the front six teeth and moved gently into alignment. The treatment can produce aesthetic results in as little as 10 weeks but the average treatment time is approximately five months.

Top Smiling Tips for your Wedding Day

  • It sounds silly, but you can practice your smile in the mirror before your wedding day. The ideal grin is said to be one that shows the upper teeth and not too much of the gums.
  • Tilt your head to one side slightly and part your teeth slightly for a natural-looking smile.
  • Run your tongue over your teeth just before a picture is snapped as this will appear to make teeth sparkle.
  • Wearing a creamy lipstick that has a shine to it will reflect light and make your smile look brighter.
  • Keep moving slightly while being photographed, so you’ll look natural in wedding photographs. Holding the same pose for every shot can make your expression appear stiff and unnatural looking.
