Congratulations, you’re getting married! Planning a wedding can be overwhelming and exhausting, so the last thing you want to worry about is a less than perfect smile. Here are some ways to prep your smile for those beautiful wedding pictures.


If it’s a year or more until the big day, you may have time to straighten your teeth. Talk to your dentist about the quickest way that would work for your teeth.


At home whitening kits are a great way to whiten your teeth quickly and inexpensively. They can be purchased at most drug and grocery stores and can be safely used every six months. If you’d like a more effective whitening treatment, talk to your dentist about whitening treatments that can be done at their office. While you’ll spend more money, you’ll get more drastic, long lasting results.

Professional Cleaning

Make your yearly dental cleaning appointment for 4-6 weeks before your wedding. This way you’ll be able to have bright, clean teeth as well as talk to your dentist about any other options that are available to you.


Veneers are a great way to correct any minor imperfections in your teeth without invasive surgery or treatments. Any chips or indentations in your teeth are completely covered by the thin layer of porcelain that is permanently attached to your teeth. When applied by a professional dentist, veneers can completely change the appearance of your smile. Schedule a consult with Dr. Makrauer or Dr. Miller as soon as possible.

Your best plan of action for a perfect smile on your wedding day is to talk with your dentist right away. Call Huntingdon Valley Dental Arts today to make an appointment with both our experienced dentists, Dr. Zola Makrauer and Dr. Julie Miller. The sooner you start the process, the sooner you’ll be ready to walk down the aisle flashing those pearly whites.
