Weddings are a time of joy, of celebration, and of smiles! At least, that’s what we hope they will be.

By now, there is a decent chance you’ve already received an invitation or two or maybe some “Save the Date” notices in the mail. Wedding season is just a few months away. Regardless of whether you are getting married, in the wedding party, or just attending as a friend of the bride or groom, your picture will probably be taken that day.

The professional photographer won’t be the only person with a camera at that event. In the age of smartphones and social media, your smile — or lack thereof — can be shared with hundreds, even thousands of people in a matter of moments.

That’s also a great reason for you to visit Brandon Family Dental in Ortonville, MI. We have some great cosmetic dental services to give your smile a boost before the big events on your calendar arrive.

What You Want To Change

Before you choose a cosmetic service, it’s good to know what specifically you would like to change about your smile. Many people say they want nicer looking teeth, but you need to know what that means for you.

Most people will develop stains on their teeth over time. If you are eating or drinking things that could stain your shirt, then they can stain your teeth as well. Coffee, tea, wine, pasta, pizza, and pie are just a few of the many, many things that may be adding to the gradual discoloration of your smile.

Wear and tear is another thing to consider. If you had a hammer than you used every day, would you expect to look the same 10 years of use? 20 years? More? Well, you do use your teeth on a daily basis to eat all kinds of foods. Some are acidic. Some are hard and crunchy. This can wear down or cause chips and cracks to form in your teeth.

Other issues may include crooked teeth or gaps between teeth. You may not have done anything to cause those issues, but they can still leave you feeling self-conscious about smiling.

The good news is that you can correct all of these concerns at Brandon Family Dental.

How You Can Improve Your Smile

Once you’ve identified what you want to change, you can consider your options. We’ll be happy to discuss them in greater detail when you visit us for a consultation. In the meantime, here are some treatment options:

  • Teeth whitening — Professional whitening products are more effective than store-bought brands. Our in-office and take-home whitening mean you have options to improve the color of your teeth.
  • Dental veneers — Porcelain veneers can conceal a number of issues including stained, crooked, cracked, and broken teeth as well as teeth with gaps between them.
  • Dental bonding — Bonding can be a cost-effective way to address many of the issues mentioned above, although bonding typically does not last as long as veneers.
  • Gum reshaping — For patients with “gummy smiles,” removing some of that extra tissue can let their teeth take a more prominent place in their smile.
