If the biggest fallout of your latest bridezilla moment is good oral hygeine, you’re in good shape.  He should be flossing and brushing and rinsing anyway (I totally don’t so I’m not here to judge lol); you can even keep it going forever by being like “we need to be able to set a good example for our kids,” if you plan on having kids.

You are almost there.  Hang in there, the wedding will be awesome and you’ll have a great time and no longer have wedding-planning-madness!  You will have beautiful teeth ^^

ETA: whitening is expensive, but so is filling cavities, so yay to keeping teeth clean!  That’s actually how I keep my Fiance doing it every single night, I made him look up what it would cost him to get them filled if he got them.  We’re lazy people but we’ll pinch the pennies.

I had your same issue just before my wedding. I looked at those zoom treatments and they are EXPENSIVE!! so I bought crest strips and somewhat helped me. I also sent the hubby to the dentist bc his problem was NOT remediable with floss and mouthwash! so, no you’re not crazy!

Crest 3D white strips with Advanced Seal are AWESOME!!  So worth the $35 or $40.

Crest whitestrips have worked for me also. Fairly cheap, and you can probably find coupons. I know walgreens has $10 somewhat often. Also, sometimes if you buy one box there will be a coupon inside for another box.

You might as well buy 2 boxes and you guys can wear them at the same time. The advanced white ones actually stay on really well, they’re a bit more expensive, but not nearly as slimy feeling as some of the other ones.

I used the 2 hr whitening treatment. I’ve always thought my teeth aren’t as white as they could be until I went to the dentist and had to get a porcelain cap (on a back tooth) they showed me the whitest ‘natural’ color they had and my teeth were much whiter than that. Needless to say I was shocked and pleased, most likely you don’t need anything but crest whitening strips.

Also, asking your SO to brush/floss/use mouthwash is not being a ‘bridezilla’ it’s something he SHOULD be doing anyway. I’m convinced without women guys wouldn’t look twice at a tooth brush. I bought my guy facewash, toner, and moisturizer to use, the way I see it is that this is one of the biggest days of our lives so we should look our best. He doesn’t mind and actually thanked me.

?? I don’t see how you’re being a bridezilla.  I am more concerned with the fact that your Fiance has “brown” teeth and doesn’t take it upon himself to practice proper oral hygiene.  After the wedding, is he just going to stop brushing and flossing again?

I agree with PPs that it’s not much of a bridezilla move, but I also know what you mean in a way. It freaks me out to realize that I’m asking for things or asking for them in a way I never would normally!
