There’s no question that a wedding day is one of the most important milestones in life, which is why looking and feeling your best is essential. From finding the perfect dress (or suit!) to topping up your tan, it’s normal to want to go the extra mile to ensure that you look amazing. One thing that’s often forgotten about is the teeth, and since this is the happiest day of your life, you can be sure that your smile is something that will catch your guests’ eyes before anything else.
A bride’s smile is just as important as hairstyling and make-up, which is why a pre-wedding whitening treatment is becoming a common feature on many wedding preparation lists. This quick and effective procedure produces instantaneous results, ridding you of any stains and discoloration. If you’re looking for the best teeth whitening, NYC is a great place to be thanks to the high calibre of professionals available.
While modern dentistry has revolutionized the ways we look after and improve the appearance of our teeth, cosmetic dentistry has a pretty terrifying history.
After centuries of dental horror stories, the Victorians came up with a solution: dentures. As a gift, the groom would often give his new wife a full extraction and a brand new set of dentures – even if her own smile was perfectly healthy! For Victorians, this was the savvy way to avoid dealing with any dental problems in the future. Dentures would be made from all kinds of materials, including wood, animal bone, gold, porcelain and real human teeth.
Oral hygiene was also something to be desired and most people walked around with smiles that would make you shudder today. However, there were methods to improve teeth, but these were mostly reserved for the wealthy. Transplants soon became fashionable and offered a lucrative opportunity to brave dentists and gravediggers. It wasn’t unusual for molars and incisors to be taken from the dead or for the rich to pay the poor in exchange for their pearly whites.
Luckily, the scary stories are very much stuff of the past and modern dentistry offers examples of some of the most innovative medical technology available. Plus, the processes used to improve the appearance of a smile are much less invasive and often entirely painless. One of the easiest and most effective ways to freshen up your smile is to treat yourself to some of the best teeth whitening NYC has ever seen.
You often hear people saying that your “smile is your most important accessory”, so why shouldn’t you take the time to ensure that your teeth look their best on your special day? When people see you, they recognize your smile before anything else and there’s no doubt that your wedding celebrations will be one of those days where you’re non-stop smiling. So we’d recommend booking yourself in for a whitening appointment two weeks before the special day. We suggest visiting a professional for an easy whitening procedure that uses 35% Hydrogen Peroxide that is activated by LED Light.
Teeth whitening is a quick in-office procedure that takes about an hour to complete. One of the best things about this treatment is that the results are instantaneous, so you can get back to your wedding admin and long to-do list. Any stains caused by years of drinking coffee, tea, juice and soda will be lifted effortlessly during your visit. This simple procedure has even changed people’s lives, giving them the confidence to smile with pure joy and pride.
We always recommend that our patients check out our complete guide to teeth whitening so that they can familarize themselves with the process before your appointment. We also have a gallery of photos from before and after whitening procedures, which offers excellent examples of the difference that this easy treatment can offer.
If you’re already booked in for a whitening session but are looking for other ways to get your grin ready for your wedding, read on!
Schedule A Dental Cleaning
It sounds simple, but often simple is the best place to start. Book yourself in for a routine dental hygiene appointment before your whitening so that your mouth is sparkling and ready to go. Starting with a clean and healthy smile makes any other treatments easier.
Eat The Right Diet
It might sound strange, but there is actually a smile-friendly diet. Snacking on crunchy foods like apples, celery and carrots is a great way to help keep your mouth clean. Their naturally abrasive texture will scrape off any plaque, plus they’re full of fibre and healthy nutrients.
Good Oral Hygiene Starts at Home
Stick to any cleaning tips and advice that you pick up during your hygienist appointment. One of the easiest and best ways to make sure that your smile is ready for your special day is by maintaining a regular oral health routine at home. So be prepared to brush and floss twice a day or even after every meal.
So now that you’ve added oral care to your wedding preparation list, why not get in touch with our professional dentists and book your consultation? We can’t wait to help give you the smile you’ve always dreamed of.
