For years to come you’ll look back at the photos of your wedding day remembering what a significant moment in life it was.
And for many there will be a lot of time and preparation in the months or even years leading up to the event ensuring the venue’s right, the dress is perfect, and you look your best for this special occasion.
If your smile is an area where you feel a little extra TLC is required, here’s how we can help you create a great smile as part of your wedding plan.
Flashing those pearly whites
Whether you just can’t restrain the smile, are chatting with family and friends or smiling for the camera, much of the wedding day is spent flashing those pearly whites.
Chances are, this will be one of the most photographed days of your life, and there’s nothing worse than feeling self-conscious about your smile, or looking back years later and wishing you had done something to change it.
The good news is, for those looking to create the perfect smile before their wedding day, there are a host of options available.
Traditional braces are a viable and affordable option, with treatment time taking anywhere up to one to two years. They involve wires and brackets to gently shift teeth into position, and once removed are maintained by wearing a retainer.
To ensure successful treatment, make sure you attend your appointments as scheduled and follow the relevant hygiene and care instructions.
When time and discretion is of the essence, Invisalign is the perfect solution for those looking to straighten their teeth without the look of traditional braces. Many brides and grooms opt for Invisalign if their big day is likely to fall within treatment time.
Invisalign uses removable clear aligners to straighten teeth. These aligners are changed regularly to shift teeth gently into position. Each new aligner builds on the work of the previous one, working to create the great smile you deserve for your big day.
The major benefit of Invisalign is that aligners can be taken out for special occasions like weddings or formals.
Talk with your orthodontist
If you’re planning a major life event like a wedding, talk with your orthodontist about the best available treatments to suit your needs. They will work with you with the aim of meeting the big date, or suggest other options, like Invisalign, that will achieve the picture-perfect smile you’ve always dreamed of.
