Working in a professional environment has its stresses and challenges. Giving talks and presentations is an ordeal in itself for many people. Having worries about the state of your teeth and the ensuing anxiety often puts many adults off taking that next step in their career. If your teeth are stopping you from smiling, who knows how many opportunities are passing you by.
Restore your smile and boost your confidence in professional circles by choosing cosmetic teeth straightening. We assure you it will be worth it and this article highlights some of the benefits you can expect from this simple procedure.
What exactly is cosmetic teeth straightening?
Also known as social orthodontics or short-term orthodontics in professional circles. It is a cosmetic treatment aimed at straightening the front teeth in a short space of time. The focus of the procedure is on the front teeth simply because they are the most visible when you smile.
If you’re only looking to fix your looks then this treatment is perfect for you. It won’t take long before you start seeing results and your dentist will recommend the best product for you. Removable aligners or those with clear brackets and tooth coloured wire are popular methods because they are less visible than traditional braces.
How do social teeth strengthening systems work?
Clear or near-invisible aligners apply gentle pressure to the front 6 to 8 teeth in the “smile zone” to bring them into alignment. Invisalign and others such as Inman Aligners are removable and you can put them on for set periods of time and then remove them. They work to gradually shift the position of your teeth into the desired position over time.
There are different products on the market but they all essentially work in the same way to slowly make your visual 6 teeth straighter.
How long do I have to wear the aligners for?
This type of orthodontic treatment is purely for cosmetic reasons so you can expect a shorter treatment period of about 6 months to achieve the results you want. Your dentist will work with you and perform regular check ups to see how you’re progressing but you shouldn’t have to wear the straighteners for more than 6 months.
The idea behind the whole procedure is for you to get you out there smiling confidently in as short a time as possible.
Tell me about the cost? Isn’t this Procedure Expensive?
“What price doth a beautiful smile cost?” That may sound a bit Shakespearean but it’s a valid statement. It depends on a variety of factors including the dentist you go to or how much your teeth need to move to get into alignment. The biggest factor is the type of system you choose because different branded systems come at different prices. The upside is that social straightening costs far less than traditional orthodontics because it focuses on just the front teeth.
The Benefits of Cosmetic Teeth Straightening
This is the really exciting part of this article. We have dispensed with the technicalities and now you get to read and imagine what an impact this treatment will have on your life. If smiling has never been your thing because you are conscious about your teeth, after the treatment, you won’t wait to show your teeth off.
The other benefits are:
Shorter treatment times compared to traditional teeth straightening which can take years
Aligners are discreet so no one really notices them unless they are very close to you
You will improve your appearance and smile which can give you a boost in social situations
Most cosmetic straighteners are removable so that you can still eat and drink your favourite foods
Maintain dental and oral hygiene easily because you can remove the aligners to brush your teeth
Besides the social aspects teeth straightening may actually correct some minor functional problems which means your teeth work better overall
As you can see there are several benefits you can start to enjoy in as little as 6 months if you choose cosmetic teeth straightening. As with any cosmetic or dental procedure, there are risks involved. Your dentist will explain this process to you when you go for a consultation. It might turn out you actually need more extensive treatment rather than cosmetic. At the end of the day getting a permanent solution to your teeth is a win-win situation for you.
