How to Get a “Wedding White” Smile
The dress isn’t the only thing that’s white at many weddings these days. Some couples choose to whiten their teeth for the big day. Here is some helpful info from Dr. Joy Lunan on how you can do just that.
Whitening for Your Wedding
Dr. Joy Lunan’s dental office in Middlebury, CT. offers in-office Zoom whitening treatments. This is such a nice service because you get results immediately without having to wait for weeks. However, whitening in-office can sometimes leave your teeth feeling a bit more sensitive, so Dr. Joy Lunan does recommend scheduling an appointment early to give your smile time to adjust. That way, by your actual wedding day, your teeth won’t be sensitive, and you’ll be free to show off that wedding white smile!
There are also some at-home options you can use, such as custom-made whitening trays you can have made with Dr. Lunan. You can also try using a whitening toothpaste or whitening strips if you have only minimal staining. Just make sure the products you choose have the ADA seal so you know they are safe as well as effective. You can ask Dr. Lunan which method is best for you.
Schedule an Appointment Early
Weddings mark such momentous days in our lives, and our smiles are a big part of them. The last thing anyone wants to worry about is getting a toothache on the big day or during their honeymoon. If you don’t see Dr. Lunan regularly, take this opportunity before your wedding to start. Schedule an appointment a few months ahead to avoid any tooth sensitivity or costly problems around your wedding. Remember, having regular dental visits can help reduce your chances of having a dental emergency or needing a procedure that close to the wedding.
Wedding Day Must Haves
If your bridesmaids are putting together an emergency kit, there’s one item Dr. Lunan recommends bringing along...floss! And maybe a little compact mirror to make sure there’s nothing stuck in between your teeth.
Regular brushing and cleaning between your teeth before your wedding day will help your breath stay fresh, but it never hurts to pack some sugarless gum if you need a refresher during the day. You can also try to avoid food that can leave your breath not as fresh, like onions or garlic.
Commit to a Daily Dental Routine
Your wedding is just one small part of a long life with your partner. When it comes to your dental routine, don’t let it slide after tying the knot. Try to start following a dental routine with your fiancee before the wedding, it will be easier to keep up together afterwards.
