With photos taken thick and fast and loved ones to welcome, you should make sure you’ve got the perfect smile to shine at your guests and new spouse.
Rapidly gaining in popularity, teeth whitening is the quick and easy option to improve your smile without needing to have major work done.
Why should I get my teeth whitened?
Photographers might edit and share the most flattering photos, but relatives and friends won’t! The first pictures people will see of your special day will be the candid Instagram and Facebook snaps taken by your guests. With professionally done make-up and hair and your dream dress, your bright white smile will be the perfect finishing touch.
Remember, nothing exposes off white better than white. Up against a white dress, neglected teeth might appear more yellow than usual.
What’s involved in getting my teeth whitened?
There are options available for nearly every budget and need. While over the counter strips can be a good short-term solution, they’re really only designed to affect surface stains. Having it done professionally will get your teeth much whiter and will last longer.
The best plan is to get your teeth whitened 1 to 4 weeks before your wedding day. Sometimes people experience mild sensitivity for a few days after the procedure, and you don’t want to be worrying about that when your meals arrive! Then, the night before the big day, give your teeth a good clean and use a custom made tray with a refreshing whitening gel to make sure they’re looking as bright and beautiful as possible.
What will teeth whitening do for me?
Teeth whitening can get rid of stains that have built up due to age, smoking, tea and coffee, red wine, and some medications and coloured foods. Because the whitening process opens the pores in your enamel, you’ll need to be careful not to eat or drink anything that will stain them for around a week afterwards.
Don’t forget, it’s not just for the ladies – men can get their teeth brightened too. Don’t let insecurity get in your way. The confidence boost of a perfect smile will only add to how much you’ll enjoy your special day with your new spouse. These are photos you’ll look back on forever, so why not splash out on something that will make you look a million dollars not just for the wedding, but for the honeymoon too!
