The Importance of a Great Smile & How You Can Obtain It Easily

You probably remember growing up hearing "Smile and the world will smile with you; frown and you'll frown alone". Unfortunately, too many children, particularly teenagers and young adults grow up smiling as little as possible because they’re ashamed or embarrassed by their teeth.  Teeth problems may include spaces between the teeth, crooked teeth, overbite, under bite and overcrowded teeth. Each of these problems may cause a young and sensitive adult to feel ashamed of their mouth, causing them to keep their mouth closed or to smile as little as possible. 

What is Invisalign?

Invisalign is the clear choice when you need treatment for your teeth, but don't want the conventional braces. When I say clear, I mean so clear that they're almost invisible. Invisalign Teen is the perfect choice for teenagers that don't want others to know they are wearing braces. Invisalign is custom made for your teeth so they'll fit your mouth and teeth perfectly, giving you a smile you’ve always dreamed of.  If you've been interested in different orthodontic treatments and braces, you're likely aware that there are many and many of them will work. However, no other method works as well with so little trouble as they Invisalign system. It's the best way to give you the smile you deserve.

Invisalign consists of a group of aligners that are custom made just for the patient. These aligners (braces), made of lightweight plastic material, are used for two weeks and replaced by new ones. Each new Invisalign aligner is designed differently based on your progress. They should be worn for a certain number of hours each day. The aligners have "progress dots" to alert you if they're being worn long enough. What a great reminder for young kids! Because the braces are clear, you can wear them without anyone knowing you have them on. 

Benefits of Invisalign

Invisalign has many benefits, including:  

  • Customizable – designed for your teeth and only your teeth
  • Effective – You don't have to wait for the treatment to be complete to notice a difference, improving your smile almost immediately.
  • Comfort – You won't experience the discomfort with Invisalign that patients often experience with traditional braces.
  • Removability – Invisalign braces can be easily removed for brushing or flossing. 
  • Clarity – Because Invisalign braces are clear, no one will know you're wearing braces unless you tell them. 
  • Cost – Invisalign braces are not any more expensive than traditional braces and many come with convenient payment plans.

Straight teeth can take you straight to the top 

The benefits of a great smile aren’t just skin deep. Sure you’ll instantly feel more attractive, but it’s you’re increased confidence that’ll change the way people perceive and treat you.

74% of people recently surveyed agreed that having a great smile is important for getting the job of your dreams and succeeding at work.

And it’s in the workplace where you’ll notice the biggest difference.

“Physical attractiveness creates a halo around a person,” said management psychologist Ken Siegel, summarizing a vast body of research. “We still place a premium on physical attractiveness as a mediator of other things, and we do not attribute favorable qualities to people we deem unattractive. It may even occur on an unconscious level.”

British research from the London Guildhall University has also revealed that less attractive people earned on average 13% less than their more attractive counterparts.

It’s not just about how the figures stack up. We all know someone whose career has benefited from their good looks and confidence. Human nature constantly shows a majority of people make instant judgments on others personality based on their looks, and the first place they look is at your smile.

A great smile isn’t just about having bright and white teeth though. After all, if you crashed your car you wouldn’t think of just slapping a coat of paint over the dents would you?

That's why a brighter smile with straight teeth is the perfect solution.

The good news is that teeth straightening is no longer has to be achieved through using braces. These days more and more people are using a revolutionary treatment called Invisalign.

Invisalign uses a series of clear, plastic, removable aligners that gently move teeth to desired final positions. Cutting-edge three-dimensional computer graphics and patented software are used to manufacture individual Invisalign aligners for each patient.

As a revolutionary alternative to traditional braces, the key benefits of Invisalign are that:

  • It is virtually invisible. No one knows a patient is in treatment and they can smile during as well as after treatment.
  • Patients can remove the aligners for meals and special events.
  • Aligners can be removed so teeth can be easily brushed and flossed, promoting healthy teeth and preventing gum disease.
  • There is no metal to cause abrasion in the mouth or gum and tongue infections.
  • Fewer visits to dentists or orthodontists are required than with braces.
  • Patients can view their own virtual treatment plan when they start on a computer screen, enabling them to see how their teeth will look on completion of the treatment.
