There are so many decisions to make between “Yes!” and “I do.”
The venue, the dress, the flowers, and where to seat the family black-sheep, Aunt Sally. (Sorry, we can’t help you with that one.) With all those decisions to make, the last thing you need to worry about is how to have the perfect smile on your wedding day. If you’ve been thinking about braces and the benefits of Invisalign for your walk down the aisle, here are seven things every bride-to-be should know about Invisalign.
92% of brides say that a smile is the most important wedding-day accessory.
That’s right, all eyes will be on you, and especially on those pearly whites. The more confident you feel about your smile, the better you will look in photos.
When you set the date, make a date to see your dentist.
Invisalign treatments usually take about a year to complete, so make an appointment for a consultation as soon as you begin planning your wedding. Planning a shorter engagement? Ask about using PROPEL technology to cut your treatment time by more than half!
Invisalign will improve your health.
When you say “in sickness and in health,” you’re probably not thinking about your teeth. But you should! Crooked or crowded teeth can lead to oral infections, which, left untreated, can contribute to serious ailments such as heart disease, stroke, pneumonia, and diabetes. Straight teeth are easier to clean and contribute to better overall health.
Your teeth will look better than they ever have.
First of all, Invisalign helps you take your oral hygiene habits to the next level. You will brush and floss after every meal, which is amazing for your gum health. Plus, Invisalign will help you remember to avoid drinks that stain your teeth, since you won’t want to remove your aligners. And, of course, your teeth will settle into beautiful alignment over the course of treatment. Get ready to dazzle your wedding guests with that gorgeous smile!
Invisalign won’t interfere with your cake tasting.
Taste away (but trust us, go for the German chocolate)! All you have to do is remove your Invisalign aligners and brush your teeth before reinserting. Of course, this applies to anything you eat! Without traditional brackets and wires, you can enjoy all of your favorite foods while you straighten your teeth.
You can fit Invisalign into your wedding budget.
Usually, dental insurance will cover a portion of the cost, and you can also use your FSA. There are payment plans available to cover the remaining balance. Want to know how much you should expect to pay? Check out this cost calculator. (http://www.invisalign.com/cost)
