Wedding Smile Makeovers: What Every Bride Needs To Know

 

If there’s one thing you’re going to do on your wedding day, it’s smile. Whether it’s as you make your way down the aisle, laugh at the speeches, or take your first dance - these are the moments you’ll cherish forever.

 

On the most special day of your life, you deserve to look and feel special. This goes beyond your hair, dress and makeup, a wedding smile makeover has the ability to complete that radiant wedding glow. At Ollie & Darsh, we’ve got a range of options to suit any budget or timescale to help achieve your dream wedding smile, let’s take a look: 

 

How Can I Improve My Smile For My Wedding Day? 

As you probably already know, planning a wedding can be stressful, let us look after your smile. There’s an abundance of options available, whether you want a full wedding smile makeover, or want to touch up that smile with some whitening. 



  • Teeth straightening

    - something a lot of people want to achieve for their big day is straight teeth and we offer a range of options to do just that. The quickest, most convenient way to do this? Invisalign. Invisalign is an unnoticeable method for straightening your teeth as it utilises clear braces which can correct a wide range of dental issues, such as gapped, crowded, or crooked teeth. As well as, overbite and underbite. 

 

  • Whitening

    - nothing gives you that radiant wedding look than a bright set of pearly whites. We offer a range of treatments to do so, including at home or 90-minute in-clinic treatment (if you’ve left things a little late). 

 

  • Composite bonding

    - one of the quickest ways to improve your wedding smile. Composite bonding is used to fill in chipped teeth, bring life to discoloured teeth, as well as close any gaps you may have.

 

  • Veneers

    - an incredibly effective way of achieving that dream wedding smile makeover. Veneers are thin, porcelain laminates that can transform any dental concern. 



How Can I Quickly Straighten My Teeth Before My Wedding? 

Depending on your treatment choice, straightening your teeth before you tie the knot can take as little as 6 weeks with veneers, or something like Invisalign can take a little longer between 6-12 months.

 

Can I Take Out Invisalign For A Wedding? 

If you’ve not quite finished your Invisalign treatment as you get to your big day, you can take your Invisalign aligners out if you wish. Just make sure you put them back in as soon as possible afterwards. 

 

When Is The Best Time To Get Teeth Whitening Before Wedding?

It’s best to leave at least 6 weeks for your teeth whitening treatment, as some can take over a month to complete. If you have left it close to your wedding day, we do offer 90 minute, in practice treatment.  

 

How To Smile For Your Wedding Photos

Once you have that wedding smile makeover, there’s a few things you can do to make sure it shines as bright as possible when you’re in front of the lens:

 

    • Tilt your head:

      as most people have symmetrical faces, tilting your head very slightly towards the camera can enhance your overall look and smile.
    • Moisten your teeth:

       before a photo is taken, give your teeth a quick swipe with your tongue to help it sparkle and add brightness to the photo. 
    • Part your teeth:

      it can look a little forced when your top and bottom teeth aren’t separated while smiling, make sure they are for that natural look.
    • Give your face a rest:

      wedding photos can take a while. In between poses, to give your facial muscles a rest, close your eyes and lips this will relax your muscles to prevent any aching.
    • Smile big, but not too big:

      a huge, as wide as possible smile can make your cheeks puff out and eyes squint, something you want to avoid.
