Have you recently found yourself unhappy with the way your smile looks due to crooked, gapped, or overlapping teeth? Maybe you wore traditional metal braces as a teenager, but like most young adults – you stopped wearing your retainer and your teeth started to shift. Now, years later, as a grown adult, the thought of starting over with painful and unsightly brackets and wires seems discouraging.
What if there was a better way to achieve a more attractive smile? Good news – there is! With the introduction of Invisalign clear braces into the dental industry, patients of all ages can discreetly straighten their smiles. This cosmetic dentistry treatment provides you with a series of smooth aligner trays made from clear, BPA-free materials. The amount of trays you receive will depend on the severity of your smile. Each tray will need to be worn two weeks at a time before graduating to the next tray in the series. What benefits does Invisalign provide?
Comfortable and Uncomplicated Treatment
Invisalign aligners are custom-made to fit seamlessly and smoothly over your teeth. You never have to worry about uncomfortable brackets and wires rubbing against your lips and cheeks and forming mouth sores and lacerations. Your dentist will give you your trays in advance, making treatment effortless with fewer office visits. Every six weeks, the dentist will monitor your results to ensure your teeth are responding well to treatment. But you never have to worry about the monthly painful wire adjustments that come with having traditional braces.
Enjoy All Your Favorite Foods
One of the primary benefits patients enjoy with Invisalign clear braces is their ability to be removed for eating and cleaning. You can enjoy all your favorite foods without any restrictions or fear of damaging a bracket. Removing your trays also allows you to effectively brush and floss your teeth, protecting you from tooth decay and gum disease. The important thing to remember is each tray should be worn up to 22 hours a day to be the most effective.
Maintain a Professional Appearance
Unsightly metal braces can give an unprofessional and immature impression, making it a less than ideal solution for adult patients trying to maintain a professional appearance. With Invisalign clear braces, aligner trays are virtually invisible. In fact, most people will not even notice you are wearing them unless you tell them. If you are concerned about an upcoming important office meeting or special speaking engagement, your aligner can be easily removed and replaced without anyone knowing.
Quickly Achieve a Straighter and Healthier Smile
Depending on the severity of your smile, patients can generally enjoy completion of treatment in just six to 12 months. Straightening your smile will not only provide an overall more attractive and youthful appearance, but it can also boost your confidence and protect your long-term oral health. Straighter teeth are easier to keep clean and less likely to trap food and bacteria when proper oral hygiene protocols are followed. With a straighter smile, you can prevent tooth decay, gum disease, costly restorative procedures, and other serious conditions.
Once your Invisalign treatment is complete – the dentist can brighten your teeth with professional strength teeth whitening to provide an even more dramatic makeover. With a newly transformed smile – you may notice more professional success, an improved social life, and overall better quality of life.
