When people look forward to their wedding, they want to look their best. This is potentially the most important day of our lives. It is the day when we achieve the happy ending of our personal story, the start of our own “happily ever after.” It is a day when we expect to have our picture taken. Again and again. And we know that those pictures are likely to be on display, not just at our home, but likely at many of our relatives’ homes. For many people, how we look on the day of our wedding is how we look in everyone’s memories.
Traditionally, it is the brides who worry most about this, but the truth is that everyone thinks about it. Definitely the bride, but also the groom, the bridesmaids, parents, and the entire “supporting cast” of the wedding all want to look their best. So it is common for people to get cosmetic treatments before their wedding. Now a new study reveals that the most popular cosmetic procedure for weddings is Invisalign.
Where the Data Comes from
The new study was conducted by RealSelf, an independent review site where people go to ask questions about cosmetic procedures and get answers from real doctors, dentists, and patients. It is a very popular site that contains a lot of useful information.
To find the most popular wedding-related procedure, they looked at all non-surgical treatment reviews for the 12 months from May 2017 to May 2018, flagging all the ones that had “wedding” or “getting married.” They then determine which procedures were most commonly found in these reviews. It turns out that It turns out that Invisalign was in more of these reviews than any other treatment, showing up in 4% of wedding-related reviews, more than twice as often as the next most popular treatment. And, really, it is not a surprise. There are many reasons why people would choose Invisalign to get ready for a wedding.
Everyone Wants to Smile at Weddings
There is probably no happy event in a person’s life that is so well documented as a wedding. Although maybe the birth of a child might be happier, there are not as many pictures of that day, and, certainly, fewer spectators are in attendance.
On a person’s wedding day, the entire family comes together for the joyous occasions, and they all want to be seen smiling and wishing the new couple well. This means that everyone wants to put their smile on display.
But what if you do not feel happy about having your smile on display, especially in pictures that might be on display for years to come? That is when people start looking to improve their smile, and Invisalign is a great choice for correcting crooked teeth. Crooked teeth are common, and they make a big difference in the appearance of your smile.
Invisalign Is the Most Convenient Way to Straighten Teeth
So if you are looking to straighten your teeth, you have several techniques to choose from. Why would people choose Invisalign? Invisalign offers many benefits, and these are especially appealing to brides and others in the wedding party.
Invisalign lets people straighten their teeth without putting their life on hold. They do not have to learn a new, more complicated tooth cleaning routine. They can keep eating all their favorite foods. Or, if they are on a diet, they can keep eating all the foods that are supposed to be on the diet, and not have even more restricted food choices.
And then there are all the photos leading up to the wedding. Engagement pictures, bridal showers, bachelor/ette parties, and all the occasions with friends and family between the engagement and the wedding.
So it makes sense that people would choose Invisalign for teeth straightening.
Get Invisalign Even Faster
With all the benefits of Invisalign, there is really only one drawback: the amount of time that treatment can take. Invisalign is usually comparable to normal orthodontics in terms of time: six months to a year or more.
