At Levenson Smile, we know how much our patients have struggled with getting the perfect smile. Crooked or gapped smiles are not just an issue that can make you feel self-conscious about your smile, but there can also be some associated oral health risks. That is why we always ensure that we offer our patients the best service and care offered anywhere.
Recently, more patients have heard about Invisalign and are asking us if that would work for them. We’ve compiled a few key reasons that you may want to consider Invisalign rather than brace to give you a smile you have always wanted.
Before deciding if Invisalign is right for you, it is important to understand how the system works. Invisalign is a custom-created tooth straightening system that utilizes the existing configuration of your teeth. A series of aligners are then created that start where your smile is, and gradually changes shape until you reach the perfect smile.
Invisalign are not permanent dental fixtures. We simply take a digital impression of your teeth and then work with a special lab to create your dental plan. Each aligner is custom fit to your teeth, so it just slides right over your existing teeth. While you wear your aligners almost all day, you still remove them throughout the day. While wearing them as directed will help you get your desired results more quickly, many patients enjoy the freedom that they have by being able to remove them at any time.
Many patients don’t like that braces also come with some pretty drastic changes to your lifestyle. Braces prohibit you from being able to eat fresh corn on the cob, fresh apples, sticky caramel, and even popcorn. In contrast, your Invisalign system should be removed when you eat any food. This means that you do not have to change your diet at all. Instead, go to the movies and share the large popcorn!
Another major factor that influences people’s decision to hold off on braces is the appearance. Many adults can feel childish or unattractive while they wear braces. Invisalign is made from a special proprietary material that is not only durable, but it is also clear! That means that you can wear your aligners, and people may not even know that you are straightening your teeth while you talk to them!
Invisalign is also fast. While results can vary based on how frequently patients wear them when you wear your aligners as prescribed, your results can be completed in as little as six months, and almost all patients have completed their treatment plan within 18 months. In contrast, traditional braces can take as long as two years!
