Planning a Smile Makeover Before Your Wedding Day

Smile makeovers are a great option for those looking to improve the appearance of their smile so they can look their best and feel more confident on their wedding day. Each smile makeover is customized to the unique needs of each patient, taking aesthetic goals, budget, and time into account. 

When considering a wedding smile makeover, it’s important to be aware of treatment timelines. Some procedures can be completed in a single visit while others can take months or longer. The more time a bride or groom has before their wedding, the more options they may have for their smile makeover. However, those who don’t have a lot of time can still benefit from a smile makeover and shouldn’t be discouraged from seeking treatment. 

With this in mind, let’s take a look at some popular procedures for wedding smile makeovers and how much time you might need for each one.  

Teeth Whitening

Teeth whitening is a popular treatment for wedding smile makeovers. Professional teeth whitening can lift years of discoloration to reveal a more vibrant, youthful smile. 

Teeth whitening is fast and effective, making it a good option for those who don’t have a lot of time before their wedding for cosmetic dentistry treatment. In-office treatments can produce results in as little as one treatment. 

Dental Bonding

Dental bonding covers dental imperfections using a special tooth-colored resin that is applied and shaped directly on the teeth. Dental bonding can treat dental chips, cracks, stains, close gaps between teeth, and can improve the appearance of misshapen teeth. 

Like teeth whitening, dental bonding can be completed in a single dental appointment. This makes dental bonding a great option for even for those who don’t have a lot of time left before their wedding. 


Veneers are tooth-shaped shells that cover the front teeth to hide dental flaws and minor damage. Veneers treat many of the same conditions as dental bonding, including chips, cracks, discoloration, and other imperfections, but veneers treatment is a longer process.

Veneers are custom-made from impressions taken of the teeth and require at least two appointments to complete the process. Between the appointments, the veneers are fabricated over a period of about two to three weeks. Because it can take several weeks to complete veneers treatment, patients should give themselves plenty of time before their wedding to undergo treatment.   


Those who want to have a straighter smile on their wedding day may want to consider Invisalign treatment. Invisalign uses a series of clear aligners to provide discreet orthodontic treatment. 

Invisalign generally takes 12 to 18 months (but sometimes longer) to achieve the desired results. Anyone considering Invisalign as part of their wedding smile makeover should speak with us as soon as possible to determine when they should start treatment.
