You can only hold a smile for so long, after that it’s just teeth. – Chuck Palahniuk, Invisible Monsters
Smile All of the Time After Having Your Teeth Straightened
Chuck Palahniuk believes that after you hold a smile for several minutes, it just becomes teeth. If you avoid smiling because you have poorly spaced teeth, then it is possible to visit an orthodontist for an evaluation. The best time for someone to get their teeth straightened is at a young age, but adults can also undergo orthodontic treatment. Many adults have only minor malocclusions that are easy to repair in a year or less with Invisalign aligners. When you are able to wear aligners to fix your teeth, you will receive 20 to 25 sets of the devices. You are supposed to wear each set of aligners for two weeks before throwing the items away in order to wear the next set in the series.
You Can Smile Easily While Undergoing Orthodontic Treatment
Alternatively, you or your child might have seriously misaligned teeth that require braces. Today, orthodontic treatment with brackets and wires is faster than a few years ago because the devices are designed using specialized computer software. In addition, you can choose to wear brackets on the backs of your teeth. You won’t feel embarrassed about smiling while you are wearing braces or aligners because the items are not as noticeable as the devices from long ago.
