Did you know that one of the first features someone notices when they meet you is your smile? What does your smile say about you? Are there things you’d like to improve, could it be straighter? When you have crooked teeth, it’s always on your mind, and it may prevent you from talking and smiling freely when you meet new people. You may have considered straightening your teeth, but who wants to speak at the next business meeting with a mouth full of metal brackets? The good news is that now you can straighten your teeth discreetly with Invisalign in Virginia Beach.
What is Invisalign?
Invisalign utilizes clear plastic aligners that are custom designed by your dentist to straighten your smile. Each set of aligners applies gentle pressure to gradually straighten your teeth over time. You wear your aligners for 22-24 hours per day and change them out every two weeks. Most Invisalign cases take around 12-24 months to complete, and the best news is that your dentist will be able to show you what your newly aligned smile will look like before you even start your treatment.
What are the Benefits of Invisalign?
The most obvious benefit of Invisalign is that because the aligners are clear, they are virtually invisible. The snug fit makes it easy to talk and smile while you wear them without anyone noticing. The aligners can be removed for eating, brushing and the occasional meeting or big event. Because the aligners are removable, your diet is not restricted as it would be with traditional braces and your oral care routine won’t change or suffer.
Invisalign works great for busy adults who want to straighten their teeth with discretion. You’ll visit your dentist every few weeks for new aligners and check ups to make sure that your treatment is progressing as planned. Many Invisalign cases can be completed more quickly than traditional orthodontics would allow, and the result is a smile that you’ll be proud of!
