Are you thinking about getting married in the near future? Then it’s a good time to start thinking about your smile.

If you’ve never loved your smile and have always wanted to improve it, you’ll want to start thinking about visiting us the finest Orthodontist in Vancouver as soon as possible because straightening your teeth can take around 18 months.

According to a recent survey, 92 per cent of brides said their smile was the most important wedding-day accessory. So it makes sense that many brides-to-be are adding orthodontic care to their wedding to-do lists.

The survey also revealed that 91 per cent of brides would like to change something about their smiles. The photos from your wedding are something you’ll cherish for years to come. You don’t want to look at them and wish you had done something about your smile before the big day.

If you are thinking of correcting your smile, but aren’t keen on sporting a mouth full of metal just before your wedding, don’t worry – you now have several options for straightening your teeth without everyone knowing about it!

Clear aligners may be an option for you depending on how much work is required to straighten your teeth. With this option, there’s no need to worry about whether your braces will be off before your big day – you can simply remove the aligner for your wedding. Nobody will even know you’re in the process of correcting your smile!

Lingual braces are a great option for many people requiring more extensive work. They’re placed on the backs of your teeth so nobody will ever know you’re wearing them. Even if your braces aren’t ready to come off in time for your wedding day, you can smile as much as you like and your guests will be none the wiser!

Ceramic braces are another good option, and are much less noticeable than their metal counterparts since the brackets are clear. If traditional metal braces are your best option, don’t despair! Depending on how much work needs to be done, you may be finished your orthodontic treatment in time for your big day.

If your wedding is quickly approaching and your braces aren’t ready to come off, you still have some options. You can speak with your orthodontist about potentially removing some or all of your braces briefly for your wedding. There are many factors that need to be taken into consideration, and it may not be in a patient’s best interest to do this.

Alternatively, you can always speak with your photographer about digitally removing them from some of your favourite images. A photographer’s ability to do this varies, so it’s a good idea to speak with them about this early on.
