Invisalign changes lives. People who thought they would never have straight teeth because they refused to wear metal braces have discovered that a beautiful, aligned smile is still possible with Invisalign. This innovative cosmetic dentistry treatment is an amazing alternative to orthodontics that has patients falling in love with Invisalign.
1. The aligners are practically invisible.
One of the biggest factors that holds adults back from straightening their teeth is the thought of wearing metal brackets and wires. They can’t imagine sporting a brace-face at work or metal-mouth at a social event.
Invisalign aligners, however, are nearly invisible. No one will ever notice them on your teeth unless you point them out. Invisalign is incredibly slim, smooth, and fits snugly against your teeth so they don’t interrupt your talking or smiling.
2. Invisalign is removable.
Unlike orthodontics where the brackets and wires are attached to the teeth until treatment is over, Invisalign is removable. You must still wear Invisalign 20 to 22 hours a day, but the aligners are taken out for meals and cleanings. Being able to take a “break” from your braces for a few minutes every day is a major perk.
3. You can eat whatever you want.
Braces come with restrictions. Invisalign does too, but being told what you can and cannot eat is not one of them. You can still enjoy your favorite chewy, crunchy, or stringy foods. The only thing you must do is clean your teeth and aligners before joining them back together again after a meal or snack.
4. Treatment is efficient.
A round of metal braces typically takes about two years to complete. Invisalign can be finished, on average, in about a year. Some cases take a little longer, some are shorter. Ultimately, though, the amount of time you must invest in your Invisalign is significantly reduced when compared with regular braces.
Plus, you only see your dentist every six weeks or so for a progress check-up and to collect new aligners, unlike the monthly visits to an orthodontist.
5. You could drop a few pounds.
While no dentist would recommend Invisalign as a weight-loss solution, patients often find that they do lose a few pounds during this treatment. The aligners are in place for the majority of every day, and sometimes a snack may just not be worth the effort of removing Invisalign, so wearers choose to avoid whatever food is tempting them.
6. Your confidence will skyrocket.
If you’ve long been self-conscious about your crooked, gapped, or overlapping teeth, Invisalign will quickly deliver noticeable results. As your smile slowly but surely evens out, your confidence will increase right along with it. You’ll want to show off your teeth, in person and in selfies, and you’ll look great doing so.
