So you’ve found ‘The One’, and you’re tying the knot. All you need now is the perfect wedding smile to dazzle your other half as you walk down the aisle. Here, we’ll show you how to get perfect teeth for your big day in five easy steps.

What Should A Bride Consider Before Getting Their Perfect Wedding Smile?

For many brides, having a smile that’s as dazzling, white, and perfect as their wedding dress is essential. Of course, as well as the dress, the venue, catering, and band (or should that be DJ? Decisions, decisions!) are all major priorities. But it’s the finer details your guests will remember and which you’ll no doubt spot in your wedding photos. So be sure to say ‘I do’ to get your perfect wedding smile ready for your big day.

Here’s how to get perfect teeth for your nuptials in five easy steps.

1. Give It Time

We’re all aware of how far in advance you need to book a wedding venue or photographer. But have you considered how much time you might need to get those perfect teeth? It’s often longer than you think. Would 18 months surprise you? Because it can often take that long to achieve the perfect wedding smile.

If your wedding teeth need straightening, you should ideally leave at least a year of treatment (depending on how crooked or crowded your teeth are initially). At the very least, you should set aside six months for straighter wedding teeth with treatments like Invisalign or Six Month Smiles® and a further month for whitening.

2. Get Things Straight

As we’ve just touched upon, there are various straightening options available to you here at Ollie & Darsh. The great thing about our orthodontic treatments is that, as well as giving you a beautifully straight wedding smile, they’re virtually invisible. So you can get on with organising your special day in total confidence.

We offer the award-winning Six Month Smiles®, which swaps metal for clear brackets and white wires. It takes the best parts of traditional braces but makes the process more efficient, comfortable and affordable. We’re also one of the top 50 providers in Europe for convenient and clear Invisalign aligners, which you can remove to eat and drink.

3. Make It A White Wedding

When it comes to achieving wedding day white teeth, prevention is often the best cure. Make sure you’re visiting your hygienist regularly to keep on top of staining and try to limit your intake of coffee and red wine in the run-up to your wedding day. Our hygienists provide dental air polishing, which removes stains and cleans deep into the tooth.

At Ollie & Darsh, we offer three different methods of teeth whitening for weddings. You can choose from Phillips Zoom Whitening in the clinic, our own Ollie and Darsh Home Whitening kits, or Enlighten Whitening, which is a combination of in-clinic and at-home treatment. With half-price Whitening Wednesdays all year round, we can guarantee a white wedding!

4. Strengthen The Bond

Composite bonding, or dental bonding, is essentially a high-tech filler for your teeth. We use teeth-coloured resin to repair chipped, discoloured, fractured, or decayed teeth. A quick touch-up with a course of composite bonding can work wonders if you’re after the perfect wedding smile, so you can walk down the aisle beaming with confidence.

There are countless benefits of composite bonding. It can totally transform the appearance and shape of a tooth. For instance, if you need to elongate, brighten or fill any gaps between your wedding teeth, bonding will do the trick. Plus, it can usually be done in one appointment and doesn’t involve any anaesthesia. So you won’t have to take any downtime from your wedding planning!

5. Keep Up The Maintenance

Having followed steps one to four, you should be well on your way to achieving that perfect wedding smile you’ve been dreaming about. The key thing now is to maintain those perfect teeth right up to your big day and beyond. Keep visiting your dentist and hygienist for routine checks and polishing to keep your wedding smile on point.

Remember to keep on top of your dental routine at home too. That means limiting staining foods and drinks; brushing at least two times a day using a non-abrasive, whitening toothpaste and a good quality electric toothbrush; flossing religiously; and using either interdental brushes or a water flosser. Keep up the maintenance and your wedding smile is sure to shine when you eventually tie the knot!
