The typical amount of time to have braces is 2years. You will be likely see notices depending on the strain the dentist puts on your teeth. You will also most likely have to wear a retainer/plate for the time you have them back off as they will want to move.

It is really personal choice, and if you are willing to do it and have plenty of time to sit in the chair then go for it.

Have you considered Invisalign? I understand that they work a bit slower than normal braces, but they are also totally clear/removable. Usually people can’t even really tell you’re wearing them.

Then, on your wedding day, you can just pop ’em out for the day and not have to pay to have them removed and put back on later.

Do you have the option to go with invisiline? Personally I don’t think it’s worth it. I would wait.

It’s hard to say without seeing your current smile. Maybe consider Invisalign?

I agree with PP. If you are looking at that short time frame Invisalign is the way to go. It’s slightly more expensive than traditional braces but much more convenient and you would have them on a shorter period of time. I only had spacing issues with my teeth so I think I wore my Invisalign for about 8 months total (now I have a retainer for at night, it’s been about a year and a half since I finished). I’m very happy with the results and it’s amazing how much better my smile looks!

I have braces now and will get them off 5 months before our wedding next year. According to my Ortho,  I wasn’t a candidate for Invisalign as it doesn’t work for those who need to rotate teeth (Crooked). Either way, I saw a difference within a few months and with 6 months to go, they are almost perfect- just fixing the bite and a few of my back molars still.

If your willing (and your Ortho) to take them off for your day and then put them back on, then go for it! I was really self conscious about mine and I’m so happy I got them on before the wedding!
