How to get straight teeth in time for a big event
A special event can be a huge catalyst in the decision to get your teeth professionally straightened. Whether you’ve got an upcoming wedding, graduation or seasonal event, having straighter teeth can give you a brand-new confidence you never knew was possible.
You might be panicking about smiling in your wedding photos, or dread the thought of being on display with your teeth in their current position. The good news is that teeth can generally be straightened relatively easily, and the process doesn’t have to be ridiculously expensive.
There are many types of tooth straightening options that you can choose from, such as clear aligners, lingual braces and traditional metal train tracks, but the route you go down depends on various factors.
The optimum amount of time to allow yourself for having your teeth straightened is 18 to 24 months. This ensures your teeth have enough time to move into the desired position and that should any issues arise, you have time to fix them. If you have this amount of time, depending on how crooked your teeth are, you will have the option of all types of braces, including: metal braces, Invisalign, ceramic braces and lingual braces.
Whether you will still be having treatment at the time of the event
If you don’t have enough time before your event to finish treatment, you may be considering invisible tooth straightening options rather than traditional train tracks. Clear aligners like Invisalign can work in a matter of six to twelve months and are virtually impossible to see, meaning you can start treatment as soon as possible and still smile confidently on your big day. This makes Invisalign a firm favourite of brides to be and others looking for a discreet tooth straightening solution.
How severe your bite is
The type of braces you can have is all dependent on how severe your orthodontic problems are. If you have mild to moderate issues then Invisalign is likely to work well, however if your bite problems are more severe you might need to opt for lingual, ceramic or traditional braces instead.
If you have a big day coming up, it’s best to get in touch with an orthodontist as soon as possible to ensure you have the maximum amount of time to straighten your smile. Why not give our expert team a call on: 0161 998 2622 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
