How To Have A Beautiful Smile On Your Wedding Day
The most important day of your life is finally here. Everything is prepared – the wedding location, the date and the gown that you will be wearing down the aisle. And you have everything about your appearance in control – your skin is glowing and your hair will be styled by a professional that you’ve carefully chosen.
But your teeth need to be prepared as well. After all, you will be the center of attention. Everyone will be watching you and the camera will capture your every move. Having the perfect, bright white smile is crucial for this special day and preparing for it is easy if you follow some simple steps.
1. First, and actually the most important part, is a visit your dentist at least three months prior to your wedding date. An assessment of your dental health is essential to establish what measures should be taken during the time period leading up to the big event. If you have special concerns, explain what you want to your dentist. This will help him make the right decisions and guide you to the best results.
2. Flossing and brushing might seem a tedious activity, but even in a short span of time this will do wonders, if done properly. Remove food that gets trapped between teeth and replace your floss holders often. Brush at a 45-degree angle at the gum line with a gentle movement and remember that it may be time to use a new toothbrush if yours is worn.
3. Avoid eating colored foods that could stain your teeth during this period. These include soft drinks, blueberries and smoking cigarettes. Instead eat a lot of apples, strawberries and carrots. They will trigger saliva production and keep your teeth bright.
If you’re in a time crunch but want bright, white teeth, the fastest method is teeth whitening or teeth bleaching. This procedure requires a visit to the dentist who will apply a gel on your teeth and have you sit under a light which activates the gel. The procedure is very fast and you’ll see the results right away.
Now you’re ready for your big day with a pearly, white smile!
