People care about how their smiles look. Research shows that across the country, 88.8% of orthodontists had patients who requested tooth whitening; that about 15% of the edentulous population has dentures made each year; and that the dental implant and prosthetic market in the U.S is projected to reach $6.4 billion by 2018.
However, it’s Invisalign that’s got a lot of people talking. Essentially, orthodontists fit patients with a series of clear aligners that over time straighten patients’ teeth. Here’s what you should know about Invisalign.
Your Smile Can Help You Get Ahead in Life
Having a healthy, white, straight smile is important. Very important. Studies show that 96% of adults believe having an attractive smile makes a person more appealing to members of the opposite sex. What’s more, nearly three in four people (74%) feel that an unattractive smile can hurt a person’s chance at career success. In other words, having a great smile can help you in your work life and love life.
Invisalign Works Quickly
Invisalign might take longer to straighten one person’s teeth, as it all depends on how much aligning their teeth need. That being said, the procedure usually takes about 12 months. In other words, if you were to start the treatment now, you could have a straight smile this time next year.
It’s Your Little Secret
The best part about Invisalign is that no one has to know about it. That’s actually the main reason why many people choose it over metal braces. The clear aligners fit perfectly over your teeth, and since they’re totally see-through, no one will be able to tell that you’re trying to align your teeth. Metal braces, on the other hand, are not quite as subtle.
