This is my daughter Allegra. She was on her way to Ring Dance - a special night similar to prom, but for Juniors, where they are presented with their class rings. She worried about her appearance - what would she wear, how would she do her hair, her nails needed to be perfect, and on and on. One thing she didn't have to worry about was her smile. Due to her short amount of time in the Invisalign, her teeth are already noticeably more straight. She felt more confident in her smile.
The most important part of the entire evening, according to her, was the fact that she could remove the Invisalign trays and not wear them for her special evening. She has been counseled to wear them 22 out of 24 hours, and wore them round the clock for an entire week in order to have some time banked.
This is something that you can't do with traditional braces. You don't have the luxury of removing them for a special day. You can always take your picture with your mouth closed, but the effect is ruined.
She absolutely loved the fact that she could go aligner free for her big event.
I'd like to share this graphic with you. Did you know that your smile is one of the first things that people notice about you when they meet you? Or that those with straight teeth are described as being happier with a high self esteem?
How do you feel about your smile?
