Bring a Healthy Smile to Your Happily Ever After
The 2012 Arkansas Democrat-Gazette Bridal Show is just around the corner and it has all of Arkansas’ brides-to-be staring off into the not so distant future of their wedding day. With glazed over eyes and bright hopes for the future, brides are diving right into planning every intricate detail of the happiest day of their lives. Being a recent newlywed myself, I can attest to the cliché that the most anticipated decision of a bride’s special day is her choice of dress. Some may even say the perfect dress can make the perfect day. When choosing a dress, the bride not only looks at the dress, but also at the hairstyle, make up, jewelry, shoes and the must-have accessory for any dress – a bright, beautiful smile. Depending on your mouth habits, your perfect smile might not be that far away. As a precaution, many brides will look into cosmetic dentistry and teeth whitening. You should schedule your dental check-up at least a year before your big day. This will give you enough time to get any cosmetic procedures you need done and have a picture perfect smile when the day comes. Whitening your teeth prior to pictures will make sure your guests remember the beautiful bride with the dazzling smile. Once your teeth are sparkling, there are some safeguards you should take to keep them that way. Avoid coffee, tea, wine and dark berries. If you are a smoker, try to keep it to a minimum or invest in some sugar-free nicotine gum. On your special day, there are some tricks you can do to make sure your smile is picture perfect the entire day. Have a Bridal-Dental kit handy. The kit can include Vaseline (which help keeps your lips from drying and keep lipstick off your teeth) and a travel size toothbrush, paste and mouthwash to keep your breath fresh and your teeth clean. Follow these tips and you will be sure to take a gorgeous smile into your happily ever after.
