Planning your wedding? How important is your smile?


Your wedding day is going to be the most important day of your life so far. It’s the day everything else has been leading up to and probably the one day you will plan for more than any other.

Every detail has been considered, the venue, guest list, menu, in fact the only thing you can’t plan is the weather!

As a reminder of this most special occasion, the day will be captured through photographs and video, a keepsake for the rest of your life.

Have you thought to consider how much your smile will play centre stage on your big day?

“You’re never fully dressed without a smile”. ~ Martin Charnin

Your smile will be in demand from the moment you step into the limelight and will be the last thing you are wearing at the end of the day.

It is said “it takes 43 muscles to frown but only 17 to smile“, so when you’re halfway through your photo shoot and your facial muscles are aching for a rest, you’ll be glad it’s a happy day!

On your wedding day you should be feeling full of confidence and this shouldn’t be undermined by any worries about your appearance, how your smile looks or whether your breath stays fresh and teeth sparkly clean.

As part of your wedding preparations, smile in the mirror and ask yourself the following questions:

  •  Are you happy with the way your teeth look? 
  •   Do you like the colour of your teeth? 
  •  Are there any old fillings or dental work you don’t like?
  • Do you have gaps you don’t like?
  • Are your teeth chipped or damaged?
  • Is there anything you would like to change about the appearance of your teeth?
  • How would you like your teeth to look?                  

Fresh breath and a dazzling smile.    

You would be amazed how easily we could change things for you. At St Paul’s Dental Practice it’s not about filling holes and pulling teeth, it’s about You, your self esteem, your health and helping you achieve a confident smile.

Increase the radiance of your smile with a visit to our Hygienist, for a profession clean, with a scale and polish or zesty Air Polish, a really effective way of removing stains.

For a long-lasting effect, consider Tooth Whitening to restore or lighten the shade of your teeth and remove deep staining. Internal bleaching is an ideal solution if you have one discoloured, damaged tooth.

Unsightly or old fillings can easily be replaced using tooth coloured material, whilst chipped teeth can be smoothed over and reshaped to keep them even.

Gaps between your teeth, that you don’t like the look of can be closed with straight forward cosmetic treatments without the need for fitted braces.

So with all the plans under way, don’t forget to make a little extra time to boost your smile, it will do wonders for your self confidence when the spotlights are on you.

Remember to follow a simple daily routine to keep your smile radiant.

  • Brush your teeth for 2 minutes, twice a day with fluoride toothpaste.
  • Brushing your tongue can help keep your breath fresh.
  • Floss at least once a day.
  • Chew sugar-free gum after meals.
  • Cut down on sugary foods and drink.
  • Keep your toothbrush clean and fresh and change it every 2-3 months to keep it effective in the removal of plaque.

So here’s to the start of the next chapter in your life.

“Smile don’t frown, look up don’t look down, believe in yourself, don’t let yourself go, just be who you are, and let your life flow”.
