No matter how gorgeous your dress, how pretty your flowers, or how perfect your hair, if you're not confident with your smile on your wedding day, you won't be feeling your best.
But of course when we think of straightening our teeth, we think of several years of unsightly head gear, wires, brackets and a not-so-bridal smile for the duration of your treatment.
Clear aligners that can do their job throughout your engagement, allowing you to smile for pictures at all those special moments (think hen parties, bridal showers, dress shopping, engagement sessions, and um, lots of me-and-my-ring selfies too!) along the road to your wedding.
Leaving you with a new, beaming, confident smile on your wedding day.
Sounds too good to be true?
The average wedding takes 13 months, from “Yes” through to “I do,” which just so happens to be the average length of an Invisalign® treatment too.
This means within months of starting to use Invisalign®, you'll already start seeing results in your smile.
So you can discreetly straighten your teeth AND be the centre of attention with confidence in the lead up to your big day.
And enjoy your investment long after the wedding cake's been scoffed and your honeymoon tan has faded.
*Now for the science bit*
(I've always wanted to say that!)
Invisalign® gradually moves teeth using a series of virtually invisible, removable aligners, so chances are, no one will even notice you're improving your smile.
For minor, more cosmetic problems, your smile can be corrected in as little as 10 weeks using the Invisalign® Express option. But Invisalign® can also tackle more complex issues, often with visible improvement after the first few months.
Take the Invisalign® Smile Assessment to find out if Invisalign® is right for you on your wedding journey.
Unlike traditional braces with (not-very-chic) wires and brackets, results using Invisalign® are visible immediately since an improving smile shines right through the clear aligners.
Invisalign® is covered by most orthodontic insurance and many doctors offer payment plans. Find your nearest Invisalign® provider with the nifty Invisalign® Doctor Locator and for more information on costs and insurance coverage, visit the Invisalign® website.
Invisalign® is also removed for regular brushing and flossing and when eating and drinking – so don't worry, you'll still get to enjoy your menu trials and cake tastings, (phew!)
Visit the Invisalign® website for more information about the clear alternative to braces.
We love crunching the numbers with some stats around here…
