When to Get Your Teeth Whitened Before A Wedding

The first round of wedding season is upon us with Spring and early Summer weddings. If you’re looking to improve your smile before one of the happiest days of your life, then professional teeth whitening might be what you need! 

At Excellence in Dentistry, if you’re looking for the perfect smile before your wedding day, then we recommend getting your teeth whitened at least two to three weeks ahead of time. Getting your teeth whitened at least two to three weeks before your wedding allows us time to achieve the shade you want and have your smile at peak brightness for the big day.

How Many Treatments Will Be Needed To See Results?

The number of professional teeth whitening sessions you need entirely depends on how many shades are needed to brighten your teeth to a desired appearance. For some, teeth whitening is subtle and can be completed in as little as one appointment. 

If you’re looking to brighten your teeth between 3 to 8 color shades, then it can take two to three appointments over a couple of weeks. Each teeth whitening session lasts about 90 minutes for each patient. 

Benefits Of Teeth Whitening Before Picture-Perfect Events

In addition to looking your very best with a brighter smile in pictures, there are plenty of other benefits you can expect from professional teeth whitening. These include

  • An evenly bright smile 
    Many at-home treatments claim to be able to whiten your teeth evenly and easily. The issue with these DIY treatments involves the uneven results most receive. Inpiduals who try whitening at home end up with results that don’t last or will need to be fixed later at the dentist.
  • Boosted confidence 
    In addition to smiling brightly at the wedding, you might find yourself showing off your pearly whites even more often because of how they look.
  • A better-looking enamel 
    While scientifically there are no physical health benefits from professional teeth whitening, they will certainly look healthier. You will no longer see the yellowish tint that is visible from enamel wear over time. 

Even though the results of a professional teeth whitening won’t last forever, the pictures you take after this treatment will. You’ll be able to cherish the memories you make while looking your absolute best after your teeth are professionally whitened.

How Long Will My Professional Whitening Treatments Last?

Most teeth whitening treatments last between 1 and 3 years. What helps most patients keep their teeth brighter for even longer involves a good dental hygiene routine and a regular dental checkup every 6 months.
