I’m getting married next year. How can you help me?
Usually we can help.
Orthodontics usually makes a visibly significant improvement in the early stages of treatment, and then more time is put into correcting the fine details of how the teeth meet. So for many patients, we would expect to have a reasonable improvement by the time you’re getting your wedding photos done.
Generally for brides* we would offer to temporarily remove visible parts of fixed braces prior to the wedding and replace them afterwards (eg after they return from honeymoon) to continue the treatment.
This would usually be free for standard treatments, and a slightly different arrangement would apply for tooth-coloured (clear) braces.
*(We’ve never had a groom ask for it yet, but we’d do the same if it happened!)
