5 easy steps for a perfect wedding day smile

Wedding season has started! If your wedding day is just around the corner, or you’ll be attending someone else’s, you will want to make sure your teeth look perfect in all those pictures! A confident smile radiates happiness and beauty, and isn’t that what the big day is all about?

Here are 5 key tips to make sure you can smile confidently at the most special of occasions 🙂

#1: Plan ahead

As the old saying goes, “Failing to plan is planning to fail”.
Weddings are known for requiring a huge logistical effort, where plans are made months and even years in advance. It’s a lot of work, but knowing everything is sorted out will give you so much more room to relax and enjoy the day. You’ll be able to smile freely knowing everything is under control.
The same goes for pictures. Of course, this doesn’t mean you need to have every single snap mapped out, but knowing which are the key moments you’d like to capture will ensure you’re ready when the camera shutter clicks.

#2: Avoid last minute dental disasters

This point ties in with the first in that it’s also planned ahead of time. Book a check-up with your local dentist well in advance to make sure your teeth and gums are looking good and healthy on your wedding day. The reason for this is that, if you need periodontal treatment on your gums for example, you will want to make sure this is treated well before the wedding day. If you leave it to the last minute, you might end up being much too busy to spend time at the dentist’s office and be worried about smiling on the big day.

#3: Say “I do” to dental hygiene

Apart from a dental check-up, you should also book a dental hygiene appointment in advance, so that a few weeks before the wedding day you have your teeth professionally cleaned. It not only makes a difference in your oral health, it also helps to make you feel super clean inside and out. Because you want to look and feel fresh when you say I do and while you’re on your honeymoon 😉

#4: Straightening your smile on a budget

If you are not happy with the way your teeth look, there’s a cost-effective solution that will allow you to achieve your dream smile without breaking the bank. With Straight Teeth Direct ™, you can straighten your teeth from the comfort of your own home in a safe, professional and affordable way.
For this, you should aim to start your treatment roughly 1 year to 6 months before your wedding, so that you will be done in time. However, the beauty of these aligners is that they are removable at any time and first results are visible after just 90 days. So, in case your treatment isn’t quite over by your big day, you can just remove the aligners and smile freely.
You will be able to complete your treatment by receiving as many aligners as you need at your doorstep. The invisible aligners are super discrete and almost unnoticeable which will make you feel much more confident, while you’ll be also saving thousands compared to traditional solutions.

#5: How to whiten your teeth safely at home

If you are not happy with the colour of your teeth, you can use a dentist-prescribed whitening kit to whiten your teeth safely at home.
If you are using Straight Teeth Direct™, you can upgrade to our premium teeth whitening solution and receive whitening gel to place inside your aligners. To achieve dazzling results and avoid stress before the wedding, you should start using the whitening kit a month or at least 2 weeks prior to the big day.  If you also manage to cut out coffee in the midst of all the pre-wedding to-dos, as well as red wine, you’ll avoid your teeth getting stained 😉

If you take these 5 tips into account, nothing will stand in the way of your perfect smile on the perfect day!
