Your wedding day is one of the most important days of your life and is an event that everyone wants to make sure that they look good for. In the months leading up to the wedding, you will be looking for the perfect suit or dress and picking out shoes and accessories… but what about your teeth?
Getting your teeth in great shape can make a real difference on your wedding day, especially given the number of photos that are going to be taken. It is for this reason why you ought to look into options for facial aesthetics and teeth whitening, simple treatments that can make a huge difference in how you look on your big day. The experienced team at our Cliftonville Dental practice in Northampton often work with brides and grooms to give them the beauty boost they need on their wedding day. Here’s what our treatments entail, and how they can help you look outstanding on your big day.
Before we get into the reason why you should look at dental treatments to help you look great on your wedding day, here are some excellent wedding venues in and around Northampton to consider for your special day.
Fawsley Hall Hotel – Country house location in Daventry with formal gardens and rich tradition.
Whittlebury Park – 600-acre country estate in Towcester with outdoor areas, an orangery and huge pavilion.
Crockwell Farm – Set in the heart of the Northamptonshire countryside, this modern farm is designed with weddings in mind. Rural and idyllic.
Highgate House – 17th Century house full of British charm, set across 26 acres of landscaped gardens.
Whether you have perfectly shaped teeth or not, one thing you’ll be doing a great deal of on your wedding day is smiling. With this in mind, the last thing you want is hundreds of photos of you smiling without shiny white teeth, which is why teeth whitening is something you should consider before the big day. There are a number of different options when it comes to teeth whitening and you can discuss these with your dentist during your next appointment. A whitening treatment will give you a brighter, more youthful smile for several months, depending on your eating and drinking habits post-treatment. Here at Cliftonville, we are pleased to offer Zoom teeth whitening – one of the most successful systems – to our patients, which can lighten teeth by several shades, giving a fresher, cleaner appearance. You can choose between our at-home bleaching kit or in-practice whitening system, both or which offer excellent and predictable results.
The process for bleaching is very simple, involving just a couple of appointments to your dentist over the course of a couple of months. Your dentist will create a custom mouthguard, which fits around your teeth and you can then apply a bleaching gel inside the mouthguard to gain the required results. It should be noted that you are always better off going to see your dentist for something like this; many whitening kits available online either don’t work, or can actually do damage to your teeth and gums.
Facial aesthetics treatments can also help you look your absolute best on the big day. An increasingly popular alternative to cosmetic surgery, facial aesthetics involve using non-surgical treatments to help combat signs of ageing, softening expression lines and defining the contours of your face. Here at Cliftonville Dental, we offer two main types of injectable treatments; Botox and Dermal fillers.
Botox is a well-established treatment that has been used medically for more than 20 years to treat conditions such as facial tics, muscle spasms, and excessive sweating. Cosmetically, we use it to relax the muscles that cause wrinkles through repeated movement, injecting it into problem areas such as the frown lines between the eyebrows, on the forehead, and in the ‘crow’s feet’ wrinkles around the eyes. The procedure typically takes around 15-20 minutes and involves minimal discomfort. Unlike cosmetic surgery, there is little to no recovery time – you may experience slight swelling or reddening in the area, but this will resolve itself within an hour or two. With Botox, you can fit your pre-wedding anti-ageing preparations into your lunch break, ensuring that you look your absolute best on your wedding day without stressing about fitting everything into your busy schedule.
Dermal fillers will give you skin a much needed boost, adding freshness, elasticity and giving your face a better overall shape and form. They can also enhance your lip volume and improve your mouth shape – perfect for ensuring that you are ready for your first newlywed kiss on the big day. The procedure typically takes around 30-40 minutes, depending on the number of areas you are having treated.
If you have decided that you would like either of these treatments ahead of your wedding day then it is best to start your search some months before the event. This will allow you the time not only to recover from the treatment itself, but also to find the perfect clinic to have this done. Whilst many locations offer these kinds of treatments it is important to remember that some have far better reputations than others, and results can vary as a result. Given the magnitude of this day it is vital that you get the right clinic to carry out your treatment, in order to avoid any potential issues which you may run into. As experienced clinicians, trusted throughout the Northampton area and beyond, the team at Cliftonville Dental are completely uncompromising in the materials and techniques we choose to help you combat signs of ageing safely and reliably.
