The New Year is upon us! Chances are you have already made a few New Year’s resolutions. You’ve probably chosen to hit the gym, start eating healthier, buy new clothes, etc. All these are great decisions to help you improve your appearance. But what about your smile?
A straighter, brighter smile is always a desire for most of us, but the expense is usually higher than we can afford. Well, what if I told you that our West Hills and Encino orthodontic clinics have a 50% off offer on braces and Invisalign starting this December?
Invisalign or Braces?
If you are an adult, you have probably frowned any time you heard an orthodontist recommend braces to you. Maybe you do not like the way they look. Maybe you do not entertain the thought of metal in your mouth. Or maybe you do not mind them at all. There are a variety of new and innovative orthodontic treatments to choose from, one of them being Invisalign.
Invisalign is a set of aligners made of safe, soft, and transparent plastic. They are custom-made to suit each patient’s needs to fit comfortably in your mouth. They are also invisible, so you do not have to be conscious of them showing when you smile or talk.
Although the stigma surrounding adult braces is slowly diminishing, braces, in general, are more popular with children and teenagers.
Braces and Invisalign are in the same price range, so the decision to choose either will depend on the status of your teeth and personal preference.
Here are some of the reasons why you get a straighter smile for New Years.
Improve Your Oral and Overall Health
Misaligned teeth prevent proper brushing and flossing. This allows the growth of bacteria that can breed plaque. The bacteria can also travel down our gastrointestinal tract thus affecting our overall gut health.
Misaligned teeth are also as uncomfortable as they are unappealing. They clench and grind against each other, causing enamel erosion, and they can lead to unnatural jaw placement. All these problems can be fixed over time using braces and Invisalign.
Don’t Look So Serious
If you got crooked teeth, you probably speak less that you’d like to. You probably also hide your mouth when you smile. This can have a negative effect on your personal and professional life.
The truth is, humans are visual beings, and people form perceptions about others off little gestures such as a smile. People who rarely smile seem too serious and unapproachable. The moments you refrain from speaking so that your teeth don’t show may rob you of great opportunities. This December, gift yourself a better smile to help you kick start the New Year off the right footing.
Support Your Other Resolutions
Every time we look into the mirror, we form perceptions about ourselves. Our smile is the focal point of our faces, and if you are unhappy with your smile, chances are you will be unhappy with your overall appearance.
If your goal is to look healthier and younger, a better smile will go along great with your clearer skin and toner body. While you work hard to upgrade the rest of your body, a straighter, brighter smile will only enhance the overall result. Braces and Invisalign are designed to be effective in a short time, so it won’t be long until you are seeing some positive results.
