How to get a dazzling smile for your wedding day

Of course you want to look pefect on your wedding day. You’ve gone over your list a hundred times to make sure you haven’t forgetten anything. You have a gorgeous dress, and you’ve been dieting for months to fit into it.  You shopped for months to find the right shoes, earrings, and hair accessories. You’ve experimented for hours with make-up and hairstyles. You have appointments lined up for a facial, a spray tan, a manicure, a pedicure, even a massage! The flowers in your bouquet were picked to bring out the color of your eyes.

You’ve even been practicing poses and facial expressions for the photographer, in the privacy of your home. The demure bride, the coy lover, the beaming wife… You bat your eyelashes and flash yourself a dazzling smile in the mirror…

Wait! Is that a dazzling smile, or are those discolored teeth not exactly the effect you were hoping for? You want those pearly whites to shine as brightly as the diamond on your finger! Whether you’ve still got months to go, or just a few weeks, here are some tips on whitening your teeth, so you really will be dazzling in white, from head to toe.

Be conscious of what you eat and drink, and avoid smoking.  Brush your teeth conscientiously after every meal. Choose a lipstick with pink or purple tones, avoiding orange shades, which bring out the yellow in your teeth. For whiter results, there are do-it-yourself whitening strips and brush on gels, or dentist-made bleaching trays and ultraviolet whitening. For problems that go below the surface, you can try professionally applied porcelain veneers which cover your teeth. Read more here
