The Best Ways for Brides to Straighten Their Teeth

Dabney Orthodontics helps brides in Midlothian get the straight beautiful smile they want for their wedding

Congratulations, your big day is on its way! Amidst all of the elements that go into planning your wedding, such as finding a venue, getting the perfect dress, and finding the right caterer, you might not be too focused on straightening your teeth. This is especially true if you’re worried about having braces in your mouth for all of your wedding photos. However, if you are getting married, there are plenty of great ways for brides to straighten their teeth while enjoying the day without worry. 

Why it Makes Sense for Brides to Get Orthodontic Treatment

If your wedding day is scheduled fairly far in advance, now could be the perfect time to start orthodontic treatment to make sure your smile is straight and bright as you walk down the aisle and take photos as a married couple. Plus, life as a married couple is bound to be full of surprises and having orthodontic treatment out of the way can allow you to focus more on each other. 

Even if you don’t get treatment done quite in time for your wedding day, there are many treatment options you can choose from that provide low visibility, giving you a clean looking smile in all of your photos to look back on. 

Invisalign for Your Wedding Day

By far, the least visible treatment option for getting straight teeth is Invisalign. When you choose this treatment option, you get a series of completely clear aligners that straighten your teeth just as well as conventional braces for qualifying cases. Not only are the aligners invisible, but they also can be removed at any time, allowing you to take out your aligners for eating, brushing, and  flossing. All of these factors will work in your favor on your wedding day if you’re still in treatment. Not only will you have a clean smile to confidently show off, but you’ll also be able to indulge in any foods you provide for your guests. 

If you just need small corrections and want your smile to be pristine for the big day, you can also choose variations of Invisalign that give you quicker results. Invisalign Lite can take on moderate or minor corrections and is finished in just 6 to 8 months. If you only need one or two very minor corrections, you can choose Invisalign Express, which is finished in only 10 to 20 weeks. 

Ceramic Braces

If you need more serious corrections, you can choose ceramic braces, which are conventional braces only with brackets that are almost clear and blend in with your teeth, significantly reducing their visibility. With ceramic braces, you’ll be able to smile confidently in all of your photos and during your entire wedding day. Just remember to avoid staining foods like red wine or colorful sauces, which is a good plan if you’re wearing a white wedding dress anyway!
