How to Get Your Smile Ready for Your Photoshoot 
You’ve been dreaming about and planning for your photoshoot for some time, but as your session approaches,
you start to worry about looking your absolute best for your portraits. In addition to finding the perfect
outfits and selecting your hairstyle, you need to make sure that your teeth are up to par. It’s natural for a
bride to feel a little anxious about her wedding day or boudoir session, but you shouldn’t be nervous about everyone
seeing your smile. Here are some tips for ensuring a bright, beautiful smile!

Think Ahead
Don’t wait too late to start thinking about how your teeth look. Most dental treatments, even those you
can find over-the-counter, require a few weeks to achieve optimal results. That’s why you need to
budget some time a couple of months before your wedding day to plan how you’re going to perfect your
smile. What needs to be done to your teeth to make sure you’re confident when you walk down the
aisle? Get started with plenty of time before the day of.

Get Rid of Stains
You may enjoy drinking coffee and eating chocolate, but unfortunately, these can stain your pearly
whites. If your teeth look a little yellow or dull, you may be able to remove surface stains with
commercial whitening products, which are available online or at your local store. However, it’s
important to keep in mind that these only yield a couple of shades of improvement.
For deeper, more serious discoloration, you’ll likely need professional whitening. Your dentist in Little
Rock can provide at-home whitening using custom trays over two weeks. Or, if you’re in pinch, they can
perform whitening in as little as one hour. Either way, you’re sure to have teeth that are 8 to 10 shades

Work with a Professional
Just as you wouldn’t trust your portraits to an amateur, your teeth deserve professional
attention. Some patients have chips, small gaps, or misshapen teeth. If this is the case for you, don’t
worry! Your cosmetic dentist in Little Rock can address these imperfections. Two common treatments
include cosmetic bonding and porcelain veneers. Cosmetic bonding entails using tooth-colored
composite resin, which is sculpted to look like natural enamel, and porcelain veneers are carefully
crafted ceramic shells that are placed on the front of your problematic teeth. Regardless of the
treatment you choose, you can have a smile you’re proud to show off in one or two appointments!

precious moments you’ll want to remember for years to come. Having a confident, genuine smile will
only make these memories more meaningful as you look back on the happiest day of your life.
