In her January 28, 2010 article for Glamour magazine, writer Petra Guglielmetti could not have been more spot-on in one aspect of prepping for the Big Day
“Your wedding day will hopefully be one of the smiliest days of your life…”
The presence of the Pocono and Endless mountain ranges provide Wilkes-Barre, PA with stunning backdrops for a day that holds much promise for two people who want to spend a lifetime together. There are many wedding venues in the city, but the sheer activity the couple will undergo in thanking guests for coming underlines the importance of putting on a happy, vibrant face after such a rite of passage. When you are in need of a dazzling smile that will leave its mark on your guests (and your wedding photo album), consult a cosmetic dentist in Wilkes Barre such as Dr. James DeFinnis, DMD for your options.
Teeth whitening is often one of the preferred options for shaping up your wedding day smile. A consultation with your preferred dentist is usually recommended weeks before the wedding, and the payment plans are to be discussed at the same time; the discussion will also tackle possible sensitivities to the whitening solution. The second meeting will see the dentist kick off the whitening using the Deep Bleaching™ system, which works by eliminating stains from deep in the enamel and bring in more oxygen to the teeth.
The final bleaching is scheduled two weeks after the first session. Your dentist will advise you to use the interlude by wearing special teeth trays laced with a prescribed dental bleaching solution- off-the-counter products are not recommended because they can imbalance the whitening. The object is to maintain the teeth’s luminescence and oxygen absorption; Guglielmetti even suggests keeping distance from stain-inducing drinks like coffee and soda. Maintain your regular brushing/floss routine too.
The last moments before going down the aisle tend to spring their own surprises for the teeth. Some people recommend brushing with a baking soda/hydrogen peroxide mix and applying whitening pens to maintain the brightness.
A smile that mesmerizes your spouse-to-be and your loved ones is never far off when you prepare yourself well. People who know cosmetic dentistry in Scranton, PA, such as Dr. DeFinnis will happily work with you to achieve it.
