Wedding Season: Getting Your Smile Ready

As wedding season is upon us, many couples will want to feel the best they can on their wedding day. Dental imperfections frequently lead to low self-esteem, so it could be a good idea for you to book a free consultation to meet with a professional and see what they can do for you before your special day.

Regular Dental Check-ups Are Key

Regular dental check-ups are crucial for your oral health, to ensure your teeth are healthy and free of any more serious issues. Your dentists will then be able to keep a close eye on your teeth and gums, and catch any problems earlier, rather than later. The last thing you would want is to go to the dentist only a month before your wedding day, only to find out that you have a more serious problem that will need a longer period of time to fix.

Another reason to have more regular check-ups is to also get your teeth cleaned professionally. Our teeth quite easily build up plaque and tartar over time, and having a good clean will leave you feeling fresh and ready to take on the world. This will also give you an extra confidence boost if you can plan to have your teeth clean before your wedding day.

Keep in mind that if you haven’t had your teeth cleaned in a while or even at all, it’s worth getting an additional cleaning a few months before your wedding day, as well as a few weeks before.

Treating Stained or Discoloured Teeth

Many people feel the most self-conscious about stained teeth and on your wedding day, this is the last thing you want to be thinking about. Receiving teeth whitening treatment prior to your wedding day could give you a big boost in confidence and have you feeling your best on your special day.

Cutting out certain foods, drinks and bad habits that are known to stain teeth will help you keep a healthy smile and good oral health. Smoking, a high volume of alcohol and sugary foods can all contribute to bad breath, bleeding gums, stained/discoloured teeth and even tooth decay.

By monitoring what you eat and drink and cutting out these habits at least 6 months before the wedding, you will improve your oral health, ensuring that more serious problems do not arise before your day. You are also likely to feel physically better and you will have a healthier, brighter smile too!

Teeth whitening treatment could be a great option before your wedding day. Though there are various teeth whitening toothpaste and kits you can find online, but we strongly recommend you discuss any of these store-bought treatments with your dentist. Store-bought teeth whitening products and kits can be extremely harmful to your teeth, causing sensitivity and other problems, so make sure you chat to your orthodontist and they will be able to give you advice on the best available treatments.

Receiving orthodontic treatment for any other dental imperfections before your wedding is also a good idea. Our Invisalign treatment can easily go hand-in-hand with our whitening gels and treatment, correcting your smile by removing stains and making it brighter at the same time. This will give you confidence and make you feel great about your new brighter, whiter smile.

Regardless of whether you need teeth straightening treatment, our Invisalign aligners are custom made to fit your unique teeth and mouth, are a brilliant way to whiten your teeth and create your ideal smile. They are also virtually invisible, which will cause very little disturbance to your everyday life.

Common Dental Problems

Receiving orthodontic treatment before your wedding day could not only give you the smile you want, but a boost in confidence too. There are a variety of reasons as to why someone might want teeth straightening treatment. Some individuals just want to correct smaller imperfections, while others might need a bit more in-depth treatment. Regardless of your dental problems, our team of specialists will be able to help give you a unique treatment plan for you and your dental needs.

Some of the most common dental problems our patients struggle with are:

  • An Overbite/Overjet happens when a person’s upper teeth protrude past the bottom teeth. This then causes a gap to form between the top and bottom teeth, which can cause issues with eating certain foods. As a result of this, a gap is created between the top and bottom teeth when the person bites down.
  • An Underbite occurs when the bottom teeth protrude past the top teeth when you bite your teeth together. This is an orthodontic problem that commonly will correct itself naturally for children, but adults will need treatment.
  • A Crossbite causes your teeth to invert their position and shift into incorrect positions. Frequently, the teeth on the inside are meant to be on the outside and vice versa.
  • Overcrowding is a common orthodontic problem, that is caused by an inadequate amount of room for the teeth in either the bottom or top jaw. This can be due to the size of the jaw or the teeth. Overlapping and crooked teeth can frequently develop as a result of overcrowding.
  • Unevenly Spaced Teeth is a problem that affects many of us and refers to when your teeth are either too close together or are spread out from each other, creating noticeable gaps.
