Thousands of men and women in NYC wish they had a smile they could be proud to show off. As a child, you were likely grateful that your parents never made you get braces. Many of us had friends who were teased and heard stories of how painful it could be to have them tightened.
As an adult, you likely look in the mirror and wish that your parents had forced you to get them. A little discomfort and embarrassment would have been well worth it, so you would feel comfortable smiling and showing your teeth. Well, it is never too late to fix your teeth and create a whole new you. Invisalign® offers a modern approach to straightening teeth.
Dr. Jackie Smiles has been the spokesperson for Invisalign for years, and is now the Invisalign Teen spokesperson-offering her NYC patients the chance to straighten their teeth without anyone knowing.
What is Invisalign®?
Invisalign® uses custom-made aligners that straighten your teeth over time. Unlike traditional braces, these aligners are made of invisible plastic, and you just slip them right over your teeth. So, not only does no one have to know you are wearing them; they can also be removed whenever you want.
You will not have to deal with those painful tightening appointments either. Every two weeks you switch to a new pair until you have achieved your desired results.
What is the Treatment Process Like?
Dr. Jackie Smiles will provide you with a complimentary consultation to determine if Invisalign® is your best option. Your consultation is a good time to have any questions answered regarding cost, insurance, etc.
X-rays, impressions, and pictures will be taken of your teeth. Invisalign® uses this information to create a digital 3D image. This image is used to develop a precise treatment plan. You can even see a visual representation of your teeth at each treatment stage. You will receive your first aligners that you will wear throughout the day. Two weeks later, you will pop in a new pair.
What Cases Are Treated with Invisalign®?
Invisalign® can be used for a variety of teeth problems, including overbite, under bite, gapped teeth, overly crowded, open bite, and cross bite. It is ideal for mild and severe cases, and everything in between.
Is Invisalign® Inconvenient?
No one wants to deal with pain or excessive maintenance, especially those with a busy schedule. Invisalign® will not slow you down. They should be worn 20 to 22 hours per day, which means you sleep in them, so you will not forget to put them in before you run out the door in the morning. You simply take them out to brush your teeth and eat. They are easily brushed and rinsed with lukewarm water, or you can use the Invisalign® cleaning kit. It could not be easier to get the smile you have always wanted.
