Every aspect of this week’s Royal Wedding extravaganza is being analysed from Ms. Markle’s dress, to the guest list, right down to her teeth.
“When looking at footage and images of Ms. Markle, it is clear that she takes her smile seriously and is proud of it – Many people who take pride in the appearance of their smile – especially those in the public eye – often place emphasis on oral hygiene, and sometimes turn to cosmetic treatments such as whitening treatments and alignment work”, says Dr Fadi Yassmin. “Although she may have been one of the few who are genetically blessed with straight teeth, it’s also possible that Meghan may have undergone cosmetic dental procedures or alignment work, such as braces or Invisalign® treatment.”
Not to discount the importance of a radiant smile on your wedding day, Dr Fadi Yassmin has provided a three-step process for emulating Meghan’s wedding-ready smile:
- Clean them right.
Brushing: A staple during your morning and night-time routine, brushing your teeth twice a day has several benefits to ensuring your teeth are at their best. Giving your teeth an extensive brush prevents cavities, removes plaque and that unwanted bacteria that coats your teeth, leading to a pristine smile on your big day!
Flossing: A simple but incredibly important step in ensuring your oral hygiene is top notch, is flossing. It not only rids your pearly whites of plaque and bacteria but also protects your gums and prevents tartar build-up.
- Make them tight.
Straightening: If you’re not happy with your tooth alignment, it could be worth investigating treatments such as the Invisalign® System, which can straighten teeth in as little as 3 months, depending on the severity of the case. As Invisalign treatment is a series of sturdy, clear plastic aligners that are virtually invisible and gradually move your teeth, it’s the perfect way to subtly straighten teeth in the lead-up to your big day – and they can be taken out for meals and brushing!
- Keep Them White.
Avoid certain food and drink: To maintain pearly whites so they can shine in all those wedding day photos, be sure to avoid consuming sugary or staining food and drink, as sugar can build bacteria and plaque, whilst coffee and red wine can lead to yellowing stains.
