Being in the dental field, I’ve noticed that about a month before the wedding, patients begin to panic and realize that the smile they’ve loved all their lives just isn’t wedding picture perfect. Unfortunately, the smile of most people’s dreams cannot be acheived in less than 3-4 weeks. If you’re recently engaged and not exactly sure where to start, here is Frangella Dental’s Wedding Countdown Guide:
- If you want to straighten your teeth, visit your dentist ASAP for an evaluation. Ortho or Invisalign cases typically take between 8 months and 1.5 years, so you’ll want to get started early in order to have your teeth perfect or at least almost perfect come wedding day.
- Crowns, bridges or veneers: These types of restorations usually require multiple visits, and the length of time between visits can be up to 2 weeks per visit. It’s best to have this treatment started as soon as possible but don’t wait any longer than 3-4 months before your wedding.
- No one wants a toothache on their wedding day so be sure to keep up with your 6-month check-ups to take care of any cavities.
- If you plan to whiten your teeth, we recommend one month before your wedding date. Whitening is the last dental procedure you should have done before big day.
