Be Proactive With Your Dental Care
Schedule an appointment with your dentist earlier, rather than later. This is especially important if you suspect you will be a candidate for any cosmetic procedures. Whether you are thinking of whitening your teeth, or you are looking into dental veneers, scheduling an appointment a few months before your wedding can help prevent last minute dental emergencies. Drs. Scott and Michelle Weninger work closely with patients to help create their dream smiles before their wedding day arrives.
Brighter, Whiter Wedding Day Smiles
Teeth whitening is the least invasive of the cosmetic treatments available. The beauty of whitening in the dentist office is that the results are evident right away. Plus, since some treatments can make your teeth more sensitive temporarily, it is a good idea to plan to have teeth whitened about a month before your big day. No one wants to be focused on sensitive teeth during the reception! Talk to Dr. Weninger about which option fits your lifestyle and budget. Besides in-house teeth whitening, there are prescription strength trays for at-home use. Be sure that any over-the-counter whitening strips or paste is ADA approved. Avoid home remedies without consulting with your dentist, or you may be causing harm in the long run.
Wedding Day Necessities
Preparation is half the battle. When preparing for the ceremony and the celebration, it is wise to prepare little emergency kits. Be sure to include floss or flossers and a compact mirror to ensure there is no spinach from your omelet where it shouldn’t be. Add a pack of sugarless gum that has the ADA Seal of Acceptance. Of course regular brushing and flossing should help keep your breath fresh, but sometimes nerves get the best of us, and we need a little breath booster throughout the day. Consider menu options. You may want to steer clear of dishes heavy on the onion and garlic.
Set Your Daily Dental Routine
Your wedding is the beginning of a life long commitment. Starting off with your dental health in tip top shape is fabulous. The team at Weninger Dentistry encourages you to set a daily dental routine to maintain optimal dental health. Whether that includes brushing side-by-side, or you prefer to handle your dental routine solo, the importance lies in the actions. Make sure you brush at least twice a day, and floss at least once to remove decay-causing plaque. Visit the Weningers for regular cleanings and exams to keep your teeth and mouth in top shape for years to come.
