What is the quickest way to straighten my teeth before my wedding?

It’s official. You’re getting married! You and the love of your life are taking the next step together. Congratulations!

You start to imagine your wedding dress or suit, wedding venue, wedding photos and – uh oh, you didn’t get braces or Invisalign® this year like you told yourself you would! Now you’re wondering whether you still have time to straighten your teeth and get that radiant smile you’ve always wanted.

You’re in luck! At GO Orthodontics, we have options to help you GO look and feel your best on your wedding day. Let’s dive in:

Can I straighten my teeth without braces?

When you think of “teeth straightening” or “orthodontic treatment”, you probably think of braces. While we do offer clear ceramic braces and aesthetic Iconix® champagne-gold braces, we know that braces may not be the ideal choice for your tight wedding timeline. Not everyone wants to wear braces on their wedding day.

We provide convenient Invisalign® clear aligners as a more discreet alternative to braces! Invisalign is virtually-invisible, conveniently removable, and just as effective as braces.

Say “I do” to Invisalign!

Invisalign treatment is an incredibly popular choice for brides and grooms! Using a series of clear, custom-made trays, Invisalign applies gentle, consistent pressure on your teeth, guiding them into a healthy alignment.

Here’s why many bride and grooms choose Invisalign to get their picture-perfect smile:

  • No food restrictions. You can try all the catering and cake samples as you plan out your magical day with your soon-to-be-life-partner! Simply remove your aligners before eating or drinking anything besides water and brush your teeth before popping them back in.
  • Practically invisible. Invisalign aligners are clear, allowing your budding new smile to shine through without the distraction of brackets and wires.
  • Easy to care for. Unlike braces, Invisalign aligners are removable and allow you to brush and floss as normal. This also means that you’ll be able to focus more of your budget on your wedding than purchasing specialty oral care products to keep your teeth and braces clean.
  • Fewer check-in appointments. With Invisalign, your orthodontist will check in on your smile progress every 12 weeks or so, as opposed to adjustments every 6-8 weeks with braces. This is great for your busy wedding planning schedule!
  • You’ll see noticeable results by wedding season! With each custom-made tray, you’ll start seeing your smile transform little by little. Many Invisalign patients even start seeing results within the first 6 weeks!

Can I take Invisalign out for a wedding?

Invisalign aligners are practically-invisible so it’s difficult to tell if you’re wearing an orthodontic appliance. If you’re worried about your aligners showing in photos, it’s ok to take them out for your wedding close-ups! Just log that time in your Invisalign app so you can keep track of your Invisalign wear for that day.

Can you see Invisalign attachments in pictures? Invisalign attachments may be visible if you take close-ups of your wedding makeup or hairstyle. But this is an easy fix! Invisalign attachments are very subtle and easy to remove when photo-editing. Tell your photographer that you have Invisalign attachments, and they can easily remove them from your final pictures.

What about whitening my teeth before my wedding?

Yes, you can whiten your teeth before your wedding! Whether you’re in the middle of Invisalign treatment or just finished your last tray, you can safely whiten your teeth. Just take out your clear aligners to whiten your teeth, then pop them back in place once you’re done. This is a huge benefit to choosing Invisalign!

Your GO orthodontist, Dr. Todd Gililland, Dr. Shawn O’Bannon, Dr. Morgan Gonder or Dr. Shane Radford, can recommend a professional whitening solution for you. You can do at-home whitening with professional-grade treatment, or in-office whitening throughout Invisalign treatment.
