As the end of the school year approaches, you’re probably counting down the days until graduation. If you’re a high school or college senior, a crooked smile can decrease your confidence, appearance, and performance in the “real world.” Fortunately, Dr. Villani offers Invisalign so you can smile confidently as you accept your diploma.
Graduation is your door to adulthood. Traditional metal braces can hide your mature appearance. Additionally, silver wires and brackets just don’t coordinate well with your graduation gown. Invisalign, however, is completely clear and invisible, so nobody will notice that you’re undergoing orthodontic treatment. Dr. Villani recommends Invisalign for image-conscious teens and professional adults.
You don’t want to be uncomfortable during your graduation ceremony. Traditional metal braces involve sharp brackets and wires that can poke, cut, or rub the inside of your cheeks and mouth. Invisalign, on the other hand, uses a series of acrylic aligners that are placed over your teeth. The aligners have a smooth surface, which eliminates your discomfort and irritation. Furthermore, Dr. Villani will customize your braces to appropriately fit your mouth and increase your comfort.
Since Invisalign braces are clear, you can wear your aligners during your celebration. However, if you feel more comfortable without it, you can completely remove your appliance during special events. You can also take out your aligners for cleaning and eating, so you don’t have to avoid your favorite crunchy or chewy foods during your grad parties. Keep in mind that the more you wear your braces, the more quickly your teeth will shift into position.
Invisalign usually only takes about nine to 24 months to straighten your smile. The treatment can correct crowded teeth, gapped teeth, overbites, underbites, and other misalignments. However, if graduation is only a month away and you want a straighter smile immediately, you may benefit from porcelain veneers. Veneers are commonly known as “instant orthodontics” because they can hide minor tooth gaps and unevenness, as well as stains, chips, and other surface blemishes.
