Wedding Smile Makeovers that don’t cost the earth

Country or city, traditional or modern – every wedding is unique, but the one thing all couples agree on is the need to capture that special day on camera. So it’s no surprise that we receive regular requests for cosmetic dental treatments before many London weddings.

Our best advice? When it comes to the perfect wedding smile, whether you’re a bride, groom or guest, it really pays to prep. So here’s our countdown to the perfect wedding photo op.

12 months to go: discuss a smile makeover

You have said YES and the venue is booked. Next? Before you get deliciously lost in detail on Instagram and Pinterest, have a think about the bigger picture – or rather, the picture; the one you’ll cherish for years to come.

If you don’t smile with confidence, come into Mint Dental for a consultation. We’ll listen to your concerns and hopes, and advise you on the treatments that will deliver your smile makeover. This could be a simple whitening procedure, orthodontics, or a variety of approaches, including implantsveneers or crowns.

9 months to go: start straightening

At Mint Dental in London, we’re proud to offer the world-class Invisalign system, ideal before a wedding because it works fast and is almost invisible. Focusing on problems with the front ‘smiling’ teeth (rather than bite issues, which may require fixed braces), Invisalign treatments are typically completed in around nine months, though this will vary with each individual case.

6 months to go: overhaul your hygiene

You can’t have a picture-perfect smile that isn’t a healthy smile – and for this, regular visits to your hygienist are essential. At Mint Dental, we offer the latest air polishing system for an enhanced deep clean that leaves teeth stain-free and shiny white.

As well as cleaning the areas your toothbrush misses, we’ll also advise you on the best products and techniques to use at home. We can even help with overhauling your lifestyle, with qualified advice on nutrition and smoking, tailored to your needs. Hygiene appointments are recommended every six months, so have one now and another just before the big day.

3 weeks to go: get whitening

Professional teeth whitening by a dentist is the only way you can legally and safely access the higher-strength bleaching gel you need to get the results you want. Over-the-counter whitening treatments, like toothpaste and strips, use a much lower concentration of active ingredients, which often yields disappointing results.

We are near Waterloo so perfect for commuters

Getting your teeth whitened at Mint Dental is gentle and cost-effective. Instead, we use the Boutique bespoke whitening system, which uses prescription whitening gel to wear custom-made bleaching trays at home over two weeks.

Once your whitening is complete, keep your trays for top-up treatments in the future.

1 hour to go: employ your secret weapon

To avoid a photo fail: floss.

4 years a customer and always professional yet friendly service. Corrected my major issues (fillings/caps) and while they're keen to ensure ongoing 'perfect teeth' they don't hard sell peripheral / optional treatments. Highly recommended

I was looking for somewhere with a personal touch, that I could trust and that’s what I got at Mint. They always remember my name and are so polite. After a year of zoom meetings I really wanted my teeth to be straight and the results completely surpassed my expectations. I now feel comfortable taking photos! The team explained everything clearly (I felt I could ask anything multiple times) appointments were always organised and it was a really easy, worthwhile process. My teeth look like my teeth but are now at their best.

The clinic is a really lovely place to visit - it is extremely clean and all of the staff are very friendly. They were kind and reassuring all the way through my Invisalign treatment - as well as having amazing technology at their disposal. Dr Imran is so accommodating and kept everything simple, addressing any concerns straight away. All in all I would definitely recommend Mint Dental Clinic, a lovely experience all round.

Over the past six years Dr Raj and Preanka and all of the team at Mint have been exceptional. Every member of the team is exemplary at their expertise and I've never felt in better hands at the dentist. Affordable and top of the range, I would recommend them to anyone.
