Close your eyes and picture this:  Your make-up is perfect.  Your hair is done up beautifully.  You have the perfect shoes, the perfect dress, and today is supposed to be one of the best days of your entire life.  You have spent months (maybe even years) planning for this day, to make sure everything is just right.  It’s go time.  You look one last time in the mirror before walking down the aisle towards the one who has captured your heart, and you smile.  Only what you see in the mirror is a reminder of years of stains caused by food, drinks, smoking, etc.  Heart racing, you suddenly wake up and your first thought is, “Thank God that was just a dream!”

As we begin to enter the most magical season of all – wedding season – let’s talk about one of the most important preparations brides everywhere should add to their “to-do lists”.  Brides spend so much time and put so much energy into planning their weddings and making sure everything is as perfect as can be; from their hair right down to the nail polish color they’ve chosen for their pre-wedding pedicures.  Let’s not forget about their smiles!

There are many different teeth whitening options out there, from whitening toothpastes to professional teeth whitening done in your dentist’s office. Brides, listen up, because I’m about to give you all of the details needed to guarantee your radiant smile is the best it will ever be on your special day.

With Zoom Whitening you can expect your teeth to look about two shades lighter than their current color. First, you need to make an appointment for a consultation so that your dentist can determine if you’re a good candidate.  Once that is decided, your whitening appointment can be made.  Now, if you typically experience sensitivity, you should start brushing with a desensitizing toothpaste such as Sensodyne a few weeks prior to your whitening appointment to limit the chance of discomfort during or after the procedure.  You should schedule your appointment around 3 weeks prior to your wedding for maximum results.  The whole procedure is done in the dentist’s office and lasts around 1-2 hours.

Let’s go back to your dream. Picture yourself, a radiant, stunning bride, on the most important day of your life.  You look in the mirror one last time before you go from Miss to Mrs. and you smile.  What you see reflecting back at you is the most beautiful, happiest smile.  All because you took the time to add “one more thing” onto your wedding preparation list.  Go ahead and pinch yourself – trust me, this is not a dream!
