My daughter began her Invisalign treatment a little more than 18 months ago - you can see it here - and she completed it just a few months ago - you can see it here. I was a little bit skeptical about using plastic trays to transform her mouth; I wore conventional metal braces twice and couldn't imagine that those tiny bits of plastic would work.
Happily, I was proven wrong. Her smile looks great, and her confidence has sky rocketed - she even smiles for pictures now - WITH her teeth!
I love the fact that my daughter has a beautiful smile, and the self confidence that goes along with it is even more lovely than the smile.
Did you know that there was a National Smile Week? Neither did I! But there is, and from conversations that I've had with my friends, it seems that many more adults than I would have ever anticipated are just not happy with their smiles. Most of them, though, are resigned to an unpleasant smile. They cite expenses with their kids, growing older and a lack of necessity to have straight teeth, and just no time. Some people are even afraid to investigate their options!
If you are one of those people who are unhappy with their smiles, take a bit of time to see what your choices are - you might be surprised! Visit the Invisalign Facebook page to learn more from the patient community, and take the Invisalign Smile Assessment to see if Invisalign is right for you - I bet you'll be surprised!
