Keep in mind, you are beautiful just as you; cosmetic dentistry is one of many choices to consider before your ceremony. Read on for an overview of various cosmetic dentistry procedures.


Choosing cosmetic dentistry before your wedding depends on a variety of factors. The most common reason is to improve your smile through procedures such as teeth whitening or repairing a chipped tooth. The intention of cosmetic dentistry is to create the best smile possible for your wedding day.

Teeth Whitening

Smile big with confidence on your wedding day by lightening your teeth several shades with teeth whitening, a type of cosmetic dentistry procedure that employs chemical processes to whiten teeth. This procedure is best for teeth that has uneven discoloration or appear dark. Teeth whitening or bleaching can be done professional or at home.

Professional Whitening

There are two main types of professional teeth whitening procedures, take home gel kits require about 2 – 4 weeks to work and light-activated whitening procedures  take about an hour. For professional whitening services make an appointment with your dentist office to determine the best method for your teeth.

At-Home Whitening

At-home whitening kits are very popular but take longer to achieve results similar to professional bleaching processes. Types of at-home whitening include whitening strips, whitening toothpaste and bleaching trays. Allow several months before your wedding when choosing an at-home whitening plan.

Porcelain Veneers

Porcelain veneers improve your smile by the application of a thin ceramic shell to the outer surface of your teeth. Veneers help smiles that feature slightly chipped or cracked teeth, discoloration due to certain medicine reactions or root canal procedures, uneven spaces or stains from fluoride. Veneers require several appointments from making mold impressions to the actual application.

The overall time needed for porcelain veneers varies from two weeks to as many as six depending on the treatment plan prescribed by your dentist.

Composite Bonding

Composite bonding involves the application of a compound resin to your teeth. It is applied directly to the teeth similar to veneers but is generally less expensive and requires fewer visits to the dentist.

The resin mimics tooth enamel but is susceptible to staining and chips like real teeth. The most popular use of composite bonding is as an alternative to amalgam silver fillings or to change the shape of teeth.


Dental implants are a type of surgical dental procedure that involves creating an artificial tooth root to serve as a base for replacement teeth that are lost or missing. Each dental implant procedure is customized for the patient’s needs. Allow at least six before your wedding for this type of procedure so that you may be fully healed before your wedding day.
