Teeth Whitening Before The Wedding

A Perfect, Bright Smile on a Perfect Day

If you haven’t noticed, people can’t stop smiling during weddings. The bride and the groom, most especially, cannot help smiling and must keep their smiles on – for the pictures. It helps if you have drop-dead, gorgeous white teeth while smiling because they make for awesome photographs to keep forever.

Before their wedding day, many couples consider teeth whitening because they know that their pictures will show them smiling and exposing their teeth. Everything should be perfect in a perfect wedding. However, there are different ways to whiten your teeth before your wedding day.

Some may opt for the whitening trays which could be more convenient for busy couples, or more affordable for those on a budget. You can get these from your dentist. You can also use whitening toothpaste or strips with the ADA Seal of Acceptance. That way, you know they are safe and effective. Frankly, getting a professional in-office whitening is better because you see the results right away. Whatever you choose, stay away from home remedies. They can actually do more harm than good to your teeth.

Possible Teeth Sensitivity

However, teeth whitening may cause you to have more sensitive teeth, which might make you uncomfortable. Dentists recommend that you schedule a whitening procedure at least a month from your wedding day. This will give your mouth and your smile some time to adjust.

On the wedding day itself, be sure to have a handy emergency kit that contains dental floss and mirror, just in case anyone in the entourage needs to remove something between their teeth. Include some sugarless gum with the ADA Seal of Acceptance for a breath booster. Keep your breath fresh by avoiding foods like garlic and onion. Remember, if you keep regular dental visits, you will not run the risk of having a dental emergency or a procedure when your wedding day is just around the corner.
