Here at our Manhattan, NYC practice, we like to remind our patients that a smile makeover can take many different forms. Not every patient needs porcelain veneers or dental implants. In fact, sometimes all your smile needs is a little straightening. Crooked teeth and bite issues can take their toll on a smile, and can leave you feeling bummed out with a frown. Fortunately, we have a treatment that may be just what you are looking for. Today, Dr. Marc J. Beshar is blogging to talk about Invisalign® and how it can straighten your crooked teeth in a way that is both comfortable and freeing.
A Smile Makeover with Invisalign in Manhattan
The thing that sets Invisalign apart from other teeth straightening treatments is the fact that is is made from a soft clear plastic, which is a big difference from the metal wires and brackets used by other restoration methods. This plastic is carefully molded to fit comfortably against your teeth and gums. This is possible because before treatment is even started, Dr. Beshar performs a thorough examination of your oral structure. The edges of Invisalign’s aligners are also curved, ensuring that you will not have to worry about your treatment cutting your tongue or gums.
One of the coolest things about Invisalign is the fact that the plastic used to make it is clear. This means that once Invisalign is in place on your teeth, it is virtually invisible, which comes with many benefits for our patients. For instance, you will not have to deal with any of the stress that comes from having a mouth full of metal. You will be able to go through your day without having to worry if anyone is staring at your treatment. With Invisalign in place, you will be able to smile your brightest, confident that people are seeing your smile and not your teeth straightening treatment.
One last benefit of Invisalign that our patients love is the fact that the aligners can be removed at any time. This comes in handy when it is time to eat a meal. With most teeth straightening treatments, you are not allowed to eat certain foods because they can get caught in or damage them. With Invisalign, you will remove your treatment when you eat and then simply reinsert them when your done. So long as you are sure to wear your aligners for at least 22 hours a day, your treatment will continue as planned.
