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

June 14, 2024

It’s a dream come true! The love of your life has just proposed!

You’re floating on cloud 9 as you look through the pictures and videos, your BFF captured of you and your future hubby’s special moment. But suddenly you find yourself wishing you had a smile as beautiful and radiant as your new engagement ring. After all, every bride (and groom) wants to look their best on their wedding day.

You’re in luck if you’re looking to straighten your teeth before your wedding! At Wiewiora & Dunn Orthodontics, we have a few comfortable and efficient treatment options to give you that picture-perfect smile on your big day.

Let’s dive in!


Start your treatment now!

The fastest way to straighten your teeth is by taking the first step – scheduling your complimentary orthodontic exam!

Our highly-experienced orthodontists will perform a comprehensive smile evaluation, which includes: digital x-rays, diagnostic photos, and a visual exam. At your first visit, you’ll meet our friendly team and get a sneak peek of what your smile journey with us would look like.

At Wiewiora & Dunn Orthodontics, we use advanced technology and proven techniques to treat you to a comfortable and efficient orthodontic experience – as it should be! That’s part of our own standard of care. After all, why stick to traditional when advancements have the ability to help you achieve your dream smile effortlessly?


So can I straighten my teeth without braces?

Braces are everyone’s first thought when you think of “teeth straightening” or “orthodontic treatment”. While we do offer modern braces options for transforming your smile, braces may not be the ideal choice for your tight wedding timeline. The average treatment length is about 18 to 24 months and not everyone is comfortable sporting braces in their wedding photos.

But good news! Our orthodontists offer a discreet alternative treatment for straightening your teeth quickly.


Say “I do” to Invisalign!

Invisalign® treatment is an incredibly popular choice among brides and grooms for their teeth straightening needs. A series of clear, custom-made trays will apply gentle and consistent force on your teeth, encouraging them to move into healthy alignment. You’ll wear your Invisalign for 20 to 22 hours a day and move onto the next series of aligners every week.

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! Just 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.
  • Less check-in appointments. With Invisalign, our orthodontists check in on your smile progress every 12 weeks or so as opposed to adjustments every 6 to 8 weeks with braces. Which 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?

While it’s tempting to remove your aligners for your wedding or skip wearing it all together for your big day, it’s important to stick to your prescribed wear time.

And like we mentioned before, 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! Simply inform your photographer that you have Invisalign attachments, and with some photo-editing 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! No matter if you’re in the middle of Invisalign treatment or just finished your last tray, you can safely whiten your teeth with us.

Our orthodontists recommend the Invisalign professional whitening system powered by Opalescence™. This allows you to whiten your teeth on your own time and gives you professional whitening results just in time for your nuptials!


Get the smile of your dreams for your dream day!

Our Wiewiora & Dunn Ortho team understands your dreams of having a bright, beautiful smile for your wedding day and we’d love to meet you.

Our orthodontists have successfully transformed thousands of smiles with Invisalign in Lake Mary and Longwood – even those who were informed by other professionals that they aren’t an Invisalign candidate! Our expertise as Diamond Plus Invisalign providers, allows us to treat mild to complex cases with Invisalign and achieve predictable (and amazing) smile results.
