Luckily my family member is a dentist so I get them for free. Is your fiance doing the zoom whitening treatments? They also have trays you can have made that look like invisalign retainers and they give you bleach you do 1-2x/day for 2 weeks. The bleaching trays are what I do. I don’t know how much they cost, but it’s obviously much cheaper then the zoom whitening procedure. You don’t even need to do it for more than 2 weeks and your teeth will look amazing!!

@shrinkgirl: I had my teeth whitened. I am lucky, my mom works in a dental office and had trays made for my husband and I.

@shrinkgirl: if you can’t afford professional bleaching trays my mom and her boss recommend the Crest White Strips if you are going with something over the counter

If you can’t give up coffee, try to remember to rinse your teeth (mouthwash, water, whatever) imediately
after you drink it – you’ll be surprised how much comes off!

He had molds made of his teeth to make the trays. And then he has syringes of opalescence to fill the trays. I think it was around $450. He did it back in August and his teeth were ridiculously white. Now he’s doing a bit of a refresher since the wedding is next month. The expensive part was having the trays made.

If your photographers have photoshop lightroom (or anything else like that, and I’m certain all professional photographers do) it really shouldn’t be a problem! It takes a very short amount of time! Usually they add that to close ups even if you don’t say anything.
Also, if the photogs find it burdensome and won’t do it and you are getting the high res images, photoshop lightroom trial is free and it is easy to edit the teeth! (I watched youtube tutorials!)

I have teeth molds from my dentist with syringes. It was free too 🙂 New dentist! I think for new syringes he said he would charge me around $80.

I actually find Crest White Strips work better for me than the trays I have from my dentist, lol. But any photographer worth his salt can whiten teeth a bit.

I naturally have yellow enamel. I had them professionally whitened as a high school graduation gift (I’ve always been self-conscious about my teeth) and they’re still more yellow than most people’s, but it was a big improvement. I’m definitely getting them airbrushed whiter on my wedding photos!

I used Crest White strips for three weeks and they did wonders to my teeth.

I retouch teeth all the time… but never too white… just a whiter color.

Editing the pictures may cost less than going to a dentist for whitening. I’m not a professional by any means, but I do know how to whiten teeth (via Photoshop) in a picture at the very least. It’s not hard to do! 🙂

@shrinkgirl: my teeth definitely get whitened in lightroom
