They say your wedding day is the most important 24 hours of your life. What is certain is that you’ll take plenty of photos that you’ll want to look back on for the rest of your life. That’s why many people opt for a teeth whitening service prior to the big day, so they can be certain that they’ll look at their very best in all of those treasured memories.
How does it work?
In the UK, teeth whitening procedures must be carried out by a dental professional. You’ll need to make a number of trips to the dentist over the course of the process, so make sure that you start planning with plenty of time to go before your big day. You don’t want to be caught out. Your dentist will take a mould of your teeth and use this to create a personalised mouth guard. You’ll then be able to use this mouth guard at home to apply whitening gel to your teeth on a daily basis.
During the teeth whitening process, you’ll make many return trips to the dentist to ensure that everything is progressing as it should. This will be an opportunity for you to ask any questions that you might have and reassure yourself that everything is progressing normally.
How much will it cost?
The cost of the procedure will vary depending on your dentist and the exact set of treatment that you cost. It may well be less expensive than you expect, so it’s worth contacting your dentist to see what services are available. Not all procedures are exactly the same and some simple, entry level forms start at relatively low prices.
Some dentists will also allow you to pay for your procedure in instalments. This means that you’ll be able to start your treatment now, with plenty of time to go before your wedding day and make sure that your smile looks absolutely perfect in all of the photos that are going to be taken.
Other things to consider
While increasing the whiteness of your teeth is a very safe procedure, the law requires that it is carried out by a registered dentist. That means that in the unlikely event that anything does go wrong, you’ll have an oral hygiene expert on hand who is ready to put things right and answer any questions that you might have. Don’t be afraid to ask any question about queries or concern that you might have before the procedure begins. A reputable practitioner will be keen to put your mind at ease and make sure that you’re totally clear on everything before the procedure starts.
Be sure to start looking at what’s available with plenty of time to go before the big day. You don’t want to find out that there are no slots left once the clock has started ticking!
