It’s natural to think about improving your smile when you have a milestone life event coming up. Many brides and grooms to be come to talk to us about their teeth in the early stages of their wedding planning process.
We think this is an excellent time to look into teeth realignment treatment. Not only will the confidence boost of straighter teeth enable you to fully enjoy your big day, a brighter smile will also look fabulous in your wedding photographs.
If you’re thinking about making teeth realignment a part of your wedding planning process, there are a few key things to keep in mind.
The cost of teeth realignment treatment will vary depending on which kind of treatment you choose. A specialist orthodontist is the best person to talk to about this, as they will be able to make recommendations based on clinical need.
Obviously planning a wedding can be a very expensive time, so do talk to your orthodontist practise about paying in instalments if that would make treatment more accessible for you.
Teeth realignment typically takes from between 6 and 24 months, depending on various factors:
- How severe your alignment issues are
- Which type of realignment treatment you choose
- How regularly you wear your retainers (if you opt for removable retainers rather than fixed braces)
Your orthodontist will be able to give you a time estimate before you start treatment, but it’s important to be aware that this is a possibility that this can change. Because of this, many patients who have a big event such as a wedding on the horizon choose removable retainers.
This means that in the unlikely event that their treatment isn’t completely finished by the time of their wedding, they can simply leave their retainers at home for the day.
