Your wedding day—or your child’s wedding day—is a day you will remember forever. You want to make sure everything is perfect so that when you look back on the day, it will be fondly, without an ounce of regret. On this happy occasion, you will likely be wearing a smile all day long, and every picture, whether professional or candid, will show it off.
You want to feel free to show your happiness, and you want to look back on pictures of the day without feeling self-conscious. So if your smile makes you unhappy, now is the time to get cosmetic dentistry. Here is a guide to cosmetic dentistry procedures you can complete by the time of your Wichita Falls wedding, depending on the season.
Cosmetic Dentistry for a Spring Wedding
Spring wedding themes often harken to the call of renewal happening all around. Thematically, this often makes people think about renewing their teeth. However, this isn’t just a thematic link. The pastels and other pale colors common at spring weddings mean it’s not just the bride in white who might worry that their discolored teeth will stand out too much. Outdoor weddings are common in the spring, and the outdoor light can be unforgiving to stained teeth.
Fortunately, there is plenty of time to brighten your smile by a spring wedding date. At StarImage Dentistry, we use the KöR Whitening Deep Bleaching System. This is an at-home whitening system that you can use to improve your smile’s appearance gradually. This system not only helps you achieve a much whiter smile than over-the-counter whiteners but also reduces sensitivity. That way, you know you’ll be able to enjoy chilled wine and cocktails, hot coffee, or tea on the day of the wedding without discomfort.
If you’ve tried whitening, but it hasn’t worked for you, porcelain veneers can help. Whitening can only get your teeth as white as your natural enamel, but veneers can be made as white as you want your smile.
Veneers can also help if you have chipped, worn, or gapped teeth. In just one procedure, you can have an entirely new smile.
If you have old metal amalgam fillings that are either silver or black, we can help you get rid of them. We will replace them with beautiful tooth-colored fillings. A dental crown can even help if one of your large fillings has damaged your tooth or made it permanently discolored.
A non-surgical facelift can help you look and feel more youthful so you can really get into the spirit of renewal.
Cosmetic Dentistry for a Summer Wedding
Since summer is the traditional time for weddings, summer wedding themes are often traditional, although some people choose some unusual themes for summer weddings. With an emphasis on light colors and fabrics to help everyone stay cool—especially for an outdoor wedding—teeth whitening remains a priority for summer wedding smiles.
Any cosmetic procedure we could complete by spring, such as porcelain veneers, crowns, or filling upgrades, we can do in time for a summer wedding.
In addition, if you are looking to replace missing teeth in time for a summer wedding, we can usually complete a dental implant procedure in time for early summer, and almost always by late summer, if you start now. This is an excellent opportunity to replace old dentures with new dental implants. You will enjoy complete confidence that your teeth will stay in place for all the pictures—there won’t be one where they start to slip out or even fall out. In addition, you’ll be able to eat whatever is on the menu. Your implants will let you bite and chew steak, corn on the cob, and more. You will also know your teeth will be fully secure when you get out on the dance floor, even if you’re doing spins, dips, or fast-paced swing dancing.
Having enough time for dental implants means we can complete a full-mouth reconstruction no matter what challenges your smile poses. We will restore all damaged teeth and replace teeth that we can’t repair.
Cosmetic Dentistry for a Fall Wedding
Fall weddings often embrace the harvest themes attendant on the season. They may delight in the abundant color displays nature puts on for us at no charge, with color themes chosen with that in mind. While muted earth tones may take some of the pressure off for teeth whitening (except for the bride, of course), the fall harvest puts food and eating at center stage. You want to make sure your teeth are up for the challenges of enjoying the foods, no matter what gets on the menu at the reception.
Fortunately, your Wichita Falls cosmetic dentist can likely complete almost any cosmetic dentistry procedure time for a fall wedding. The only exception is orthodontics, which can sometimes take a year or more to complete.
