You spend months on end to plan the perfect wedding – finalizing the perfect dress, jewellery and makeup artist. We do give a lot of thought on how we’re going to look at all the wedding ceremonies. We book the best makeup artist, photographer, and other vendors for the best looks and photos.
But, most times, we forget to consider that our smile is something that is going to make or break the show. As you prepare for the million other things for your wedding, it’s important to remember to indulge in good oral care too.
Here are some things you can do to get the perfect wedding-ready smile for you to flaunt!
First things first: Visit your dentist and get an idea for the work you need on your teeth. Veneers can take up to two to three months while orthodontist treatments like realignment can take up to a whole year. So, start early!
2. Clean them up
Getting your teeth cleaned will help in preventing gum diseases, get rid of tartar or plaque from your teeth. It will also help you give a better idea about the condition of your teeth and what all you need to actually get done.

3. The White Smile Diet
Raw food items like apples and celery are loaded with fibre and have a natural abrasive that can help in polishing your teeth. Munching on these food items is as effective as brushing.
4. Consider professional whitening
Professional whitening is a quick miracle to get white teeth, eliminating stubborn stains and yellowing teeth. It’s quick, viable and takes a few hours for the process with immediate and lasting results.

5. Mind your toothpaste
Toothpastes with harmful ingredients like silica can damage your teeth. Avoid these to maintain good oral health.
6. Avoid too much mouthwash
Most mouthwashes contain alcohol that can harm and dry your teeth and weaken your set of teeth. This can eventually lead to decaying of your teeth.
7. Sip smart
Tea and coffee stains can easily catch onto your set of teeth. Sip through a straw to avoid patching your teeth with their colour.
