A smile can say a multitude of things about a person. If you’re smiling, it can show you are happy, friendly, nervous or excited. However, if you’re feeling self-conscious about your smile and try to hold back on it, this can affect how people interact with you. A reluctant half-smile can certainly give off bad vibes that you may not be intending to transmit and nothing says unfriendly than a smile through gritted teeth.
If you’re wary about your smile, this may be because you have misaligned teeth. Whether you are a teenager or an adult, you may be feeling as though there’s nothing you can do about the way your teeth look. However, there is a discreet and convenient treatment that you can get for mild to moderate alignment issues. Put that smile back on your face with Invisalign Harley Street.
What is it?
Invisalign is a system that comprises clear plastic aligners that are removable and barely visible to other people when worn. They apply pressure to the teeth to gradually move them into the desired position to give you an aligned and improved smile!
There are numerous advantages to wearing clear aligners. Firstly, they are practically invisible when you wear them, so you won’t need to worry about people spotting or pointing it out. Next, the treatment time is as little as 6 to 18 months so, if you’re feeling impatient, you don’t need to worry! You can also remove the aligners for up to 2 hours a day. This means that you can take them out during mealtimes as well as before you brush and floss which will allow you to keep up a great oral hygiene routine . You will also have the freedom to choose to remove them for a special occasion or when playing sports, for example. The choice will be yours and this flexibility is what makes clear aligners a popular choice with patients.
Another plus point is that the aligners are custom made to fit your mouth so they will sit comfortably along the gumline. Dentists use iTero technology to scan your mouth to get the measurements from which your aligners will be made. This scan also allows a digital animation to be generated to show you what your teeth will look like after treatment has been completed before you’ve even started it! Once the aligners arrive, you will then be provided with 6 weeks’ worth of aligners to change between each week. Then you must visit your dentist after this period for a checkup after which you will receive the next batch of aligners. By only having to visit the dentist every 6 weeks, it has a minimal impact upon your busy schedule. Also, there shouldn’t be any need to visit for an emergency appointment when there is little that can break with clear plastic aligners!
If you want to feel better about your smile, book an initial consultation to discuss your concerns with your dentist and find out how these clear aligners can help. If you are eligible for this treatment, you could be loving your smile in a matter of months – it’s definitely worth it!
