A Healthy Smile Is Important for a Great Overall Appearance


4 Reasons To Get Invisalign

Invisalign is a great way to get the perfect straight teeth that you want. Many people consider Invisalign but wonder if there really are that many advantages to Invisalign over braces. For many people, Invisalign is the much better option and is well worth the difference in cost. Here are some of the advantages of Invisalign that you may not know about.

1. Quicker Results

One thing many people do not know is that Invisalign can work faster than braces. There are people who have had to have braces for years, or even twice to get the results that they want. Invisalign is not like this. In most cases, you should be able to get the Invisalign done and completed within 6 months to a year and a half.

If you are worried about wearing braces for years to come, then Invisalign is the much better choice. You get the same benefits without the waiting time.

2. Less Discoloration Of your Teeth

One of the biggest drawbacks to braces is that it can discolor your teeth. Because there is a metal brace put on each tooth, it can easily cause there to be a difference in color between the part that had the brace and the rest of the tooth. This means that when you finally get the braces off you might need to invest in expensive teeth whitening treatments to correct the problem.

Invisalign won't discolor the teeth. Instead, the trays have no part where they attach to the teeth to cause it to color differently then the rest. Thus, when your Invisalign is completed, you will have evenly colored teeth without having to invest in whitening treatments.

3. Less Damage To The Mouth

Braces are difficult because they can harm the mouth. The metal braces tend to scratch and damage the gums, lips, and tongue. Many people get sores in their mouths that take time to heal, making them incredibly uncomfortable.

This is not the case with Invisalign. The trays are smooth so that you can easily run your lips and tongue over the trays without hurting anything.

4. The Appearance Is Better

Many adults avoid getting braces because they are worried about how it will look. Braces can be distracting. Since Invisalign trays are essentially invisible, only your closest friends and family will even notice. This is a major advantage to many individuals.

About Me

A Healthy Smile Is Important for a Great Overall Appearance

I have always loved fashion and beauty and have always taken great pride in my appearance. As a young adult, I never missed a hair coloring appointment or hesitated to run out to the mall to grab the latest trendy clothing item, but unfortunately, I didn't care for my teeth as well as I should. While I never used to be one to "shy away" from photos, I started fearing the camera after I saw how bad my teeth looked in one. That photo was a wake-up call, and I then dedicated myself to taking better care of my teeth at home, visiting the dentist regularly, and getting the dental work I needed. I learned a lot during this time, so I decided to start a blog to help others make smart dental decisions. Come back and check out my posts!
