Straighten up for a smile-filled summer wedding

It may still be that time of year when ghosts and ghouls are getting active and petrifying pumpkins are being carved, but the sunnier wedding season is only a few months away. So, if you’re in the midst of a wedding planning whirlwind and fixated on food, flowers and fabulous frocks, you might want to spare a thought for how your smile will look in those ‘forever’ photos.

If you are getting hitched in the summer but a tad worried about flashing crooked or gappy teeth, we might just have the answer with our speedy (and sneaky) teeth straightening procedures.

A matter of months to tidier teeth

Depending on your particular case, Six Month Smiles is a fast acting orthodontic option that really could give you smarter teeth for an early summer 2017 wedding (as most cases are completed within 6-9 months). It’s also a great choice if you don’t want to be lumbered with noticeable braces in the run up to your big day because it has clear brackets and tooth coloured wires.

Six Month Smiles manages to work so swiftly because it focuses on gently moving only those teeth that show when you smile (and you’re going to be doing a lot of that!).

Clear aligners for neater nuptials

Invisalign® may take a little longer to realign teeth, but it could rectify your naughty gnashers in time for an early autumn outing. It uses a series of clear aligners to gradually move teeth to a better (more photo-friendly) place. Each of the slightly different aligners is worn for around two weeks and this exerts a force that carefully repositions your pearly whites.

It’s important to wear the almost invisible aligners for 22-24 hours a day but you can take them out for eating (whatever you fancy) and teeth cleaning. And if you haven’t allowed quite enough time to finalise the realignment of your teeth, you can always keep with the treatment and simply remove the aligner on your special day. You just need to pop it back in when you’ve become a Mr or Mrs.

Awesomely arranged teeth in no time

This removable Inman Aligner™ offers a super snappy way to treat mild to moderate crowding or protrusion of the front teeth. It consists of a titanium spring which exerts pressure on the back of the teeth and a bar that goes across the front. This creates a push and pull effect, which moves misbehaving teeth to where you want them to be.

Many cases are completed within just 6-18 weeks so you could still sport a smarter smile even if you’re tying the knot as early as next spring.

Hidden benefits

Cfast offers a number of quick, discreet solutions that can whip your smile into shape in no time. One of these is a tailor-made invisible brace that’s fixed to the back of the teeth so they can be reorganised in secret.

This type of appliance is known as a ‘lingual’ brace because the brackets are fixed securely to inside (lingual) surface of the tooth. It works in the same way as conventional fixed braces but carries out its business behind the scenes.

So rather than having a wonky-toothed wedding, why not set your teeth straight and ensure you’ll be ready for more beautiful beaming on the best day of your life.
