Wedding Makeovers: Cosmetic Dentistry for Your Big Day By Dr. Scott Parr on November 15, 2023

Happy newlyweds traveling after cosmetic dentistry

Planning a wedding involves a huge number of moving parts. If you’re reading this blog post, we’re happy that you’re considering yourself – how you want to look and more importantly, how you want to feel. On your big day, you want you to be able to share confident, genuine smiles with your friends and family. Not to mention the countless number of pictures that will document it all. So if you’re unhappy with your smile, you’ve come to the right place. At The Smile Center in Virginia Beach, VA, we specialize in custom smile makeovers for brides and grooms. Read on to learn more about what cosmetic dentistry can do for you.

What Are the Benefits of a Wedding Smile Makeover?

Whether your teeth have shifted after orthodontics, your smile has become stained over the years, or you’ve never liked the gap in between your front teeth, we have a solution for you. We can combine two or more procedures into a custom dental makeover to address:

  • Discolored teeth
  • Chipped enamel
  • Worn teeth
  • Gaps in your smile
  • Crooked teeth
  • Overbites and underbites
  • Small or irregularly shaped teeth
  • A gummy smile

At the same time that we recommend any cosmetic treatments at our Virginia Beach practice, we’ll also make sure you have a healthy foundation. If you have any decayed teeth or signs of gum disease, for example, we will first address those concerns.

Common Elements of a Smile Makeover

Technically, a smile makeover combines two or more procedures for a streamlined treatment plan. During a consultation, we might find even just a single treatment is sufficient to meet your needs. We often recommend:

Teeth Whitening

One of the simplest and most cost-effective dental treatments is professional teeth whitening. We’ll often suggest this as the first step toward achieving a more beautiful smile so that any veneers or other restorations you receive will match a bright, youthful shade.

Porcelain Veneers

Veneers are one of the most versatile procedures. They can mask a range of concerns – even mild types of misalignment. We use incredibly lifelike materials and advanced techniques so you can rest assured your veneers will be indistinguishable from natural teeth.


We offer both traditional braces and Invisalign® at our Virginia Beach practice. Clear aligners like Invisalign are more effective than ever before. As long as you’re committed to wearing them for 20 to 22 hours a day, you can achieve stunning results.

Gum Contouring

Veneers are often combined with gum contouring to address teeth that appear short or stubby. Another way to describe this concern is that an excessive amount of gum tissue is visible when you smile. During a minor surgical procedure, we can remove very small amounts of periodontal tissue to achieve a better balance between your teeth and gums.

Leveraging Technology for Faster, More Precise Results

One of the most important tools we use to perform smile makeovers is our CEREC machine. This system allows us to take digital impressions for precise treatment planning. And in many cases, we’ll upload this information into our in-office milling machine to create restorations while you wait. Instead of waiting weeks for a traditional restoration, for example, we can design and place a permanent porcelain crown in just one visit.
