Even though we learn at an early age not to judge a book by its cover, it’s not that easy. We all do it, and studies show that for 29% of North Americans, the first thing they notice when meeting someone new is their teeth. People with a straight, uniform smile are perceived as being more successful, more trustworthy, and 58% of the time, are chosen over those with misaligned teeth for jobs and new relationships. Fortunately, at Dental Care Group, using Invisalign aligners we can straighten your teeth – invisibly.
If you didn’t have braces as a child or teen, you may think that a straight beautiful smile is out of reach – especially if you don’t want anyone to see you wearing metal braces. Invisalign aligners can give you the best of both worlds – invisible treatment and beautiful straight teeth. Using a series of clear aligners custom-designed for your smile, Invisalign helps you get straight teeth – without metal mouth. Invisalign is the solution if discretion is your goal.
Why do straight teeth matter?
It’s more than just appearance. Straight teeth are easier to clean. That means your risk for cavities and gum disease decreases. You can worry less about food getting trapped in gaps between your teeth, and shredded floss from tightly spaced teeth can be a thing of the past.
No more metal mouth means you’ll smile more during treatment and you’ll spend less time in our office having adjustments! Because Invisalign aligners are removable, you can still enjoy your favorite foods and smile without holding back. With Invisalign, there’s nothing to avoid and nothing to hide!
Invisalign aligners can correct…
- adult teeth crowding – decreasing the risk of dental decay and gum disease
- widely spaced teeth – halting the shifting and tilting of surrounding teeth
- crossbites, overbites, or underbites – reducing the wear and tear that causes worn-down teeth.
Over the course of Invisalign treatment, you’ll receive a number of custom-calibrated medical-grade transparent plastic aligners to gently reposition your teeth until they look the way you’ve always dreamed they could. Invisalign treatment involves no brackets or wires, and the aligners are easily removable, so you can eat, brush, and floss regularly. You can even eat foods that are off-limits with metal braces, play sports (with a mouthguard of course!) and wind instruments during treatment, and most importantly, because Invisalign is virtually undetectable, no one will know you’re straightening your teeth unless you tell them!
If you think you’d like to experience a brand-new beautiful smile, give us a call! We’ll set up a consultation, review your individual smile and lifestyle needs, and custom design the smile you’ve always dreamed of!
