How Long Do Results From a Bridal Dental Makeover Last?

By: Dr. Victoria Veytsman


The wedding day is the opportune moment for the bride to shine. Along with the rest of your to-do list, you should include improving your smile for all photography sessions that memorialize one of the most important days of your life. At Cosmetic Dental Studios in NYC, celebrity dentist Dr. Victoria Veytsman works with brides throughout New York City to help them achieve radiant smiles to complement their gorgeous appearances with customized bridal dental makeovers.

What is a bridal dental makeover?

A bridal dental makeover is a highly-tailored treatment plan that can include a combination of restorative and cosmetic interventions to improve your smile. A bridal makeover may be as simple as a teeth-whitening session or as complex as dental implant surgery, depending on your unique needs and personal dental goals. At Cosmetic Dental Studios, Dr. Veytsman meticulously assesses the current status of your teeth, gums, and jawbone to determine what treatment plan would best suit you to achieve a brilliant smile in Manhattan.

What treatments are included in a bridal dental makeover?

At Cosmetic Dental Studios, we offer any of the following dental treatments that could be provided separately or in a combined package:

  • Teeth-whitening
  • Veneers
  • Tooth-colored fillings
  • Bridges
  • Onlays
  • Bonding and contouring
  • Full or partial dentures
  • Invisalign?

Benefits of a bridal dental makeover

A bridal dental makeover comes with numerous benefits, including:

  • A brighter, fuller smile
  • A customized treatment plan
  • Detailed treatment and recovery protocols
  • Long-lasting results
  • Improved oral health

Candidates for a bridal dental makeover

You may be a candidate for a bridal dental makeover if you:

  • Want to improve your smile for your special day
  • Have cracked, chipped, or misshapen teeth
  • Have missing, gapped, or crooked teeth
  • Have stained or discolored teeth
  • Have a “gummy” smile
  • Are in good general health
  • Have healthy gums, teeth, and a jawbone

Dr. Veytsman will evaluate your teeth and review your dental history to determine if you can safely undergo a bridal dental makeover. Patients with active oral infections, tooth decay, or a necrotic jawbone may require additional dental treatments before proceeding with their bridal dental makeover.

How the treatment process works

All treatments included in a bridal dental makeover are performed at Cosmetic Dental Studios in New York. Each scheduled session will appear differently, depending on the restorative or cosmetic dental services selected. Before Dr. Veytsman performs any dental treatments, she will assess your oral structures utilizing CT scans or other imaging options. Some treatments only require a single outpatient visit, such as teeth-whitening, bonding, contouring, or fillings. Other treatments, such as veneers, dentures, crowns, Invisalign, and dental implants, require multiple visits to our office for adjustments, molding, and healing.

What should I expect for recovery after my bridal dental makeover?

Patients who receive simple cosmetic work typically need no recovery time and can eat relatively normal meals within hours after their treatment session. For others who participate in surgical procedures, such as dental implants, Dr. Veytsman may recommend modified diets and specific recovery protocols to optimize healing and to decrease risk for infection. Consult with Dr. Veytsman about what to expect for your unique recovery period.

How long do my results from a bridal dental makeover last?

With the proper dental care and lifestyle choices, the results of a bridal dental makeover can potentially last for several years. Consider adopting the following tips to your daily living practices to optimize the results and lifespan of your bridal dental makeover:

  • Brush and floss your teeth twice daily
  • Use mouth rinse regularly to decrease bacteria and tartar buildup
  • Avoid excessively chewy, hard, sticky, and crunchy foods
  • Minimize sugar intake to reduce risk for decay
  • Avoid highly staining foods and products (wine, coffee, tobacco use, beer, acidic foods)
  • Attend routine dental checkups and professional cleanings
