If you feel less than confident with your smile because of its appearance, then perhaps it is important for your emotional wellbeing that you speak with a dentist to discuss the options that are available to you to rectify this.
There comes a time for all of us where we recognise the importance of our emotional health and take steps to improve it. Whether it be to enhance our business opportunities, for friendships or for romantic reasons, by feeling more confident in ourselves, we can ensure that more doors are opened.
Unfortunately, we do unconsciously judge one another and teeth is one of the first features that we see. Those with poor looking teeth are often thought to be less trustworthy, less intelligent and less attractive, perhaps a residual side effect of societal rankings and the availability of healthcare some decades ago.
As we all now have access to appropriate health care, there really is little excuse to not ensure our smiles are looking the best they can be. Why don’t you speak with an oral health care professional today to understand some of the changes that have been made in dentistry over the years for the better?
What are some of the ways that I can straighten my teeth?
Teeth straightening options have increased in leaps and bounds over the years. Individuals are not restricted to the singular, traditional braces option that was once the only choice. Because a lot of people have very different issues with their smile, it became apparent to dentists that streamlining the treatment process was important. This allows those with mild to moderate misalignments to receive the treatment that they needed and nothing that they didn’t need to achieve a healthier and happier smile.
One of the outcomes of this research was Invisalign Harley Street. This treatment is innovative in its design as it is one of the few removable devices that we have available. Invisalign Harley Street consists of removable trays that you replace every few weeks to a slightly different shape.
Over the course of several months, the trays gently guide your teeth into a straighter position. At the end of the treatment, you will wear a retainer, which is the same as a single aligner in appearance, but simply holds the teeth in place so that the ligaments can relax. Otherwise, we have found that teeth will gradually move back into their original position again.
Invisalign Harley Street is popular with both teenagers and adults alike, as it is a convenient and discrete tooth straightening option. Unlike traditional fixed braces, you do not need to come in and visit your dentist regularly, rather you can just change from one aligner tray to another when directed to do so. This means that you do not need to come into the dental practice as frequently, which is a must with today’s busy lifestyles.
The clear, discrete option also gives you the confidence to continue life uninterrupted as you embark on this life-changing journey to a straighter and more appealing smile.
