Unless you have the confidence (and patience) of a buddhist monk, it can be incredibly difficult to overcome crooked-teeth insecurity. In the age of social media and the “curated life,” we’re inundated with beautiful photos of people traveling the world, living their best life, and smiling big, bright smiles. Even if you understand that behind-the-scenes, life can’t possibly be as wonderful as it seems in someone’s Instagram feed, it can be difficult to shake the feeling that your smile just isn’t up to par.
Before considering braces to fix your crooked smile, consider the benefits of Invisalign. In the last twenty years, Invisalign has become the number one choice for adults hoping to correct crowded or crooked teeth. Using the principles of traditional orthodontics, Invisalign can correct smiles using clear, transparent aligners that are completely removable. Unlike traditional braces, patients hoping to correct their smiles have the freedom to remove their aligners whenever they choose, making it easier to eat what you want, speak clearly, and continue living your normal life.
If you’re hoping to correct your crooked smile, here are some of the advantages of Invisalign.
Aesthetics & Noticeably
One of the main advantages Invisalign has over traditional braces is the absolute convenience. Metal braces are quite noticeable, especially as an adult, which can cause even more insecurities on top of what you already experience. Like the name suggests, Invisalign aligners are nearly invisible. Unless you’re very close to someone, it’s unlikely others will noticed. More so, the removal of the aligned allows you the freedom to remove them before a big meeting or romantic occasion (or even if they just don’t match your outfit).
There’s no doubt that in the last twenty years, Align Technology revolutionized the orthodontics industry with Invisalign, but the best part is they’re not done yet. Using data collected from over 6 million smile, they continue to perfect their treatment every year. On average, patients wear their aligners between 6 to 18 months, which is nearly half the time of regular braces. That’s because they’ve been able to use the latest in 3d mapping technology to custom-design treatment plans that are right for you. Gradually you will see your smile change and become what you’ve always wanted it to be.
