For the one day you’ll be photographed more than any other, here are 4 tips to get your smile camera ready:
Come in for a consultation as soon as you get engaged
After you’ve popped the champagne and celebrated your heart out, a visit to the orthodontist should be one of your first pre-wedding appointments. Since some treatment plans can take up to a year to complete, it’s best to get started as early as possible to ensure the best results. Learning about all your options sooner rather than later will prevent unnecessary stress as the big day approaches.
Opt for professional whitening over at-home whitening
Over the counter whitening strips may lighten your teeth unevenly, giving your smile a splotchy, unnatural look. As trained professionals, we can deliver a completely uniform look, and are able to use a more powerful solution than what you can purchase at the drugstore. Plus, we deliver beautiful results in one hour, so you won’t have to spend night after night with gel strips stuck to your teeth.
Avoid teeth-staining food and drinks
Food and drinks with dark pigments, tannins, or high acidic content can open the pores within the enamel and cause color compounds to stick to your teeth, leading to discoloration over time. To keep your smile bright and white in the weeks leading up to your big day, avoid things like coffee, tea, red wine, balsamic vinegar, tomato-based sauces, and dark-colored fruit juices. They’ll be waiting for you on your honeymoon!
Don’t stress - we can help!
There are lots of little details that may cause stress while planning a wedding. Perfecting your most important wedding day accessory - your smile - doesn’t have to be one of them! At PORTH we make cosmetic orthodontic treatment easy and stress free with our convenient appointment times to accomodate any schedule and our flexible payment plans to suit your budget.
