On your wedding day, you want to look your absolute best—for all those photos and videos, and most importantly, for the person you’re walking down the aisle to. Your wedding is one of the most important days of your life, and with all the effort you put into all the other aspects of the big day, it only makes sense to give the same attention to yourself!
The adage goes: something old, something new, something borrowed, and something blue. Well, we’re rewriting that—let’s make it white. We’re not talking about the dress… we’re talking about your smile.
Whether you’ve considered teeth whitening treatments before or not, your wedding is a perfect time to try them out. Professional whitening can really revitalize your smile. Professional whitening differs from over-the-counter treatments by being both effective and personalized. When you use over-the-counter whitening treatments, you risk having a smile that’s actually too white—and too white can be distracting and look awkwardly unnatural.
Natural smiles aren’t just one shade of white! They contain varying degrees of colors that may not be immediately visible to the untrained eye. When you use over the counter treatments, you could end up over-whitening your teeth, resulting in an opaque, toneless smile. Cosmetic dentists know how to create your perfect smile by finding your perfect shade of white, one that matches your skin tone and the whites of your eyes. Your dentist can whiten your teeth up to 10 shades in one sitting.
Professional treatments don’t have to happen in the dentist’s chair either! If you love the convenience of over the counter treatments, don’t worry: you can obtain a take-home whitening kit that is made just for you. With proper care, the effects of teeth whitening can last more than a year. You’ll have the perfect smile for the wedding, the honeymoon, and whatever adventure happens next!
