Smile is the Vainest Thing You Can Wear Without Costing You Anything
Smiling is something we naturally do from birth until about age 13. That is when we start realizing our smile may not be perfect. Missing teeth or misaligned teeth may cause embarrassment. Some people start smiling with their mouth closed. They may hide their laughter behind their hands. Instead of letting self-consciousness rob you of your smile, do something about it.
Orthodontists can fix your teeth.
Braces can straighten teeth back into their proper positions. Conventional braces are brackets placed on the teeth. Wires are woven through the brackets. Over time, with regular visits to the orthodontist, your teeth will begin to shift back into a beautiful smile. A team of professionals will make sure that the teeth are going in the right direction. They will instruct you on good oral hygiene, which is so important while you wear orthodontia. A plan will be tailored to your specific needs. The end result will be a dazzling smile that you will be proud to display.
For some people, this is not a good option. Actors, people in the spotlight and those who work with the public don’t want everyone to see a mouthful of metal when they talk. For these people, there is still an answer.
Invisalign aligners are clear, removable orthodontics that is perfect for people who want to correct their teeth without the whole world knowing. Clear aligners are custom-made for each individual. As they are worn the teeth will slowly start to move into place. The aligners change as the teeth move. The results are the same as the conventional method. Invisalign aligners are easy to wear.
