Here Comes the Bride! Are Your Teeth Shiny and White?

Here Comes the Bride! Are Your Teeth Shiny and White

With wedding season in full swing, brides everywhere are gearing up for that all-important walk down the aisle. You’ve bought the dress, booked your hair appointment, and chose the cutest shoes to go with your gown. But have you given any thought to your smile? Even if you have straight teeth, take a look in the mirror. Are your teeth yellow? You don’t want your smile to be in direct contrast to your bright white dress, so make sure to get your pearly whites treated before the big day.

Teeth whitening in Southeast Michigan is one of the most common cosmetic dental procedures. You may have tried those over the counter kits but found that the results weren’t quite what you were looking for. If you need more dramatic results that last longer, consider in-office or take-home teeth whitening kit from your dentist.

Staining happens to everyone over time. Things that can compound this yellowing of the teeth include smoking, and consuming red or white wine, soda, coffee and tea, as well as eating berries like blueberries and black berries. You don’t have to live with it; in fact, there’s no better time to get your teeth back to their former glory than right before your wedding day.

In-office or at-home whitening kits are safe, effective ways prescribed by your dentist to remove those surface stains and enjoy a prettier smile.

If you opt for in-office treatments, also called chair-side whitening, you can expect this visit to take about a half hour, whereby a chemical solution is applied to the teeth. You may have to go back for one more session if you don’t see the results you desire.

For at-home treatments, a specially formulated bleaching agent specific to the shade you desire is crafted by your dentist. The bleaching agent is placed in custom trays that you can wear at home for convenience. Just be sure to wear them as prescribed (usually a few hours a day or at night) so you can remove stains effectively while still protecting your tooth enamel from damage.

There are many benefits to using an at-home bleaching treatment over strips bought at the store:

  • Faster process and longer lasting results
  • Lower long-term cost
  • Less invasive, with trays that are lightweight and portable
  • More effective at ridding the teeth of stains originating from things like coffee, smoking, red wine and berries, as well as medications and certain health conditions

Your wedding day is one of the most important – and most photographed – days of your life. Make it count. Show off that radiant smile that will be captured for all to enjoy for many years to come. Teeth whitening also has the great side effect of boosting your self-esteem, so go ahead and enjoy your wedding day with confidence.
