Get Your Smile Wedding Ready
Congratulations on your upcoming wedding! As you navigate through the whirlwind of wedding planning, it’s essential to ensure that your smile is radiant and picture-perfect for your big day.
Whether you’re just starting to think about your wedding smile or need some last-minute enhancements, we’ve got you covered!
Schedule A Check-Up
Before diving into any smile-enhancing treatments, it’s crucial to have a comprehensive check-up.
At Willow Tree Dental we offer a wide range of treatments across many areas of dentistry. Our multi-disciplinary team can straighten, whiten and fix your teeth all under one roof!
During your initial exam, we will assess your oral health, address any concerns, and tell you everything you need to know about the treatments available to you and how long they will take!
Then, we will create a personalised treatment plan to make your smile dazzle on your wedding day.
Don’t forget to book this appointment well in advance, ideally as soon as you get engaged or as soon as you have chosen your wedding date, to allow ample time for any necessary treatments.
Book A Hygiene Appointment
Many people consider having their teeth cleaned by the Hygienist as an optional extra.
But, the truth is, regular visits to a Dental Hygienist are vital to maintaining excellent oral health, not to mention the aesthetic benefits you get from a good tooth cleaning.
Our dental hygienists use Ultrasonic cleaning to remove plaque and dental calculus, which appear yellow on your teeth as well as surface stains left by coffee, tea, red wine, and other delicious things that stain your teeth!
Cleaning your teeth this way will leave you with a healthier, brighter-looking smile.
Award Winning Teeth Whitening
The most popular and effective treatment for wedding-ready smiles is a course of teeth whitening.
It’s a quick, easy, and effective way of transforming your smile. This is why so many brides & grooms opt for this treatment before their big day!
During your whitening consultation at Willow Tree Dental our award-winning teeth whitening Dentist, Dr Peta Leigh, will discuss your desired results, check your clinical suitability, and determine the best tooth whitening option that’s safe and effective for you.
Don’t make the mistake of leaving it to the last minute! A course of teeth whitening generally takes around 1-2 weeks to achieve your desired results, so be sure to book your whitening consultation well in advance!
Cosmetic Dental Treatments
If you have any dental imperfections, such as chipped, and unevenly spaced teeth, or missing teeth now is the time to address them.
Our dentists can recommend various cosmetic dental procedures to perfect and enhance the aesthetic appearance of your smile.
In addition to teeth whitening, we offer a wide range of aesthetic dental treatments from minor aesthetic-boosting treatments to full smile makeovers.
We take enormous pride in relieving patients from the embarrassment of their smiles with beautiful, natural-looking results.
If you have concerns about the alignment of your teeth and want to transform your smile with Orthodontic treatment we can help.
Of course, this is not a quick fix, so if you want to straighten your teeth in time for your wedding get yourself to the Orthodontist as soon as possible.
It is possible to straighten teeth in as little as 6 months. However, your treatment time depends on the complexity of your malocclusion, so make sure you give yourself plenty of time to complete your treatment.
We offer a range of Orthodontic treatments at Willow Tree, including, Invisalign’s clear removable aligners.
Book your Orthodontic Consultation today to find out more about straightening your teeth in time for your wedding.
Make Changes To Your Daily Routine
In addition to dental visits and treatments, there are several things you can do yourself that may help to keep your teeth looking their best before the big day!
Elevate your oral hygiene regime at home – Be diligent with your oral hygiene regime. Brush your teeth twice daily, floss every day, and drink plenty of water. Especially after you eat!
Eat raw fruit & veg – Making smart snack choices will not only help keep your body in shape, but it can also benefit your oral health.
Raw fruit and vegetables are naturally abrasive and can help to keep your teeth clean throughout the day. Again, remember to drink water after to help wash away the sugars food leaves behind!
Be mindful of food and drink that stain – Consider using a straw to drink beverages that cause staining; coffee, tea, red wine, etc. You may also want to avoid foods that can stain your teeth; beetroot, balsamic vinegar, and tomato-based sauces are some of the main culprits to be avoided!
Drink plenty of water – Did we mention you should drink water? There are so many benefits to both your general and dental health!
The natural fluoride in water can strengthen your teeth and helps to prevent cavities.
Drinking plenty of water also helps to keep your mouth clean by washing away food debris, acids, and sugars left behind by your food, keeping your mouth as clean as possible throughout the day!
