Not only will straightening your smile with Invisalign help your smile look better, but it will also enhance your oral health. With crooked, crowded, gapped, or misaligned teeth, it’s easy for food to become trapped in hard-to-reach places. This can result in built-up plaque and tartar that can lead to bad breath, cavities, and gum disease. Your misaligned bite can also lead to clenching, grinding, and TMJ disorders.
By straightening your teeth with Invisalign, you will enhance your oral health. This can help you have fresher breath, fewer cavities, and prevent gum disease. Although this won’t directly help prepare you for upcoming events, your healthy smile will bring you more confidence! Fresher breath doesn’t hurt either.
Help You Feel Confident For Every Picture or Smiling Opportunity
One of the biggest reasons you would want to straighten your smile with Invisalign before an event is so that you can feel confident whenever you smile for a picture or smile because you’re feeling happy. The last thing you want to do when you’re having a good time is focusing all your attention on hiding your teeth. With Invisalign, our cosmetic dentist can help straighten your smile so you can enjoy every moment of your event without having to second guess what your teeth look like.
Thanks to Invisalign, you can look back at photos from your event and see your confident smile shining in all of them.
It’s Discreet In Case Your Treatment Isn’t Completed Yet
Most Invisalign treatments take at least six months to two years to complete which means your teeth likely won’t be straight by the time you get to attend your first event. But this doesn’t mean you should put off your treatment. Invisalign aligners are made of thin clear plastic which makes them barely noticeable. If you do want to look your best for a photoshoot, you can remove your aligners and smile away. As long as you don’t keep your aligners out for more than 4 hours per day, you’re in the clear. Thanks to Invisalign, you can still show off your gorgeous results, even if they’re not complete yet.
Eat Your Favorite Foods Without Worry
If you do attend an event while still undergoing Invisalign treatment, you also don’t have to worry about limiting your diet. By removing your Invisalign aligners, you’re giving yourself the ability to eat whatever food you want! Invisalign doesn’t come with any food restrictions, unlike traditional braces. You can enjoy your favorite foods, feel confident in your smile, and have the best time at your event!
Invisalign is the Perfect Cosmetic Dentistry Starter Treatment
Once you complete your Invisalign treatment, your teeth will have a strong foundation for more cosmetic dentistry treatments. After straightening your teeth, you might have noticed that your teeth could use help with stains, or that your teeth are not all symmetrical shapes and sizes. Fortunately, there are lots of other cosmetic dentistry treatments that can help perfect your smile even further.
We can start by giving you a professional teeth whitening treatment to get rid of any stains or discoloration. Or, if you want to perfect the shape or size of your teeth, we will recommend porcelain veneers instead. Porcelain veneers are stain-resistant and can change the color, size, and shape of your teeth.
Whatever you want to improve in your smile, we offer a wide range of cosmetic dentistry options to help accomplish your goals.
