Your wedding day is one of the biggest, most memorable days of your life. Family and friends come from all over to celebrate your love. With such a momentous occasion, you can expect no shortage of photo ops. While you want to make sure you look great from all angles, it’s especially important to make sure you look great when you smile. There are a few ways to make sure your smile is picture-perfect on the big day.
It doesn’t matter if your teeth are blindingly white and pin-straight if they are also smeared with lipstick. Most brides will wear more makeup on their wedding day, so it’s a good idea to ask one of your bridesmaids or your maid of honor to routinely do a check to make sure you don’t have lipstick on your teeth. Whether it’s during the ceremony or before the wedding toasts, always have someone check to make sure there’s nothing smeared across your teeth.
To stay up late planning the wedding and endure long hours at work, you sipped more than a few extra cups of coffee. It’s understandable. But as a result, you notice some coffee staining. If you’re dealing with tooth discoloration and don’t want that look to clash with your white wedding dress, whitening is an excellent idea. You can choose to purchase a kit and do the process at home or, for a more potent and long-lasting look, you can go get a professional whitening. Either way, you’ll want to make sure that your teeth are taken care of.
Invisalign or braces
If you struggle with a crooked smile, Invisalign or braces can help. Both options require a custom fit and application. Orthodontists estimate anywhere from 12-36 months to fully straighten teeth, on average. So the sooner you start, the better. If you don’t have the time to completely fix your teeth before you wedding, consider using Invisalign instead of braces. This will help you to straighten your teeth as much as possible and then allow you to simply remove the tray during your wedding activities.
If there’s any day when you absolutely need to look and feel your best, it’s your wedding day. While you’re making preparations and picking out your dress, don’t forget to take care of your teeth. You’ll see the difference in your photos. And if worse comes to worse, just have your dedicated photographer apply a little photoshop magic after the fact!
