If you think about it, the amount of importance that we put on our teeth and our smile is probably a bit more than is deserving but for whatever reason, mot of us find our smiles to be one of the more important things that we consider in our self esteem and the way that we think about ourselves as we present ourselves to the world. Our smile is such a small part of our physical presence but since it is the first thing that we show to people and our smiles are such widely known signifiers of good will or greetings, even if it is silly in a way, our smile shows a lot about who we are and the type of person that we want to be portrayed as. After all, if you think about it, if you meet a person who never smiles, you are probably going to think that person is just a jerk or is unsocial. That may very well be the case but it is also a possibility that maybe that person is just not comfortable with their smile and doesn’t want to show it to the world. We don’t; often think of that possibility but in fact there are a lot of people who curb their smiles because they are embarrassed by their smiles.
When it comes to adults having a hard time with the way their teeth look it can seem like you are between a rock and a hard place because on one hand, you don’t want to have crooked teeth that you are ashamed of but on the other hand, most adults don’t want to go through the process of adult braces for the next few yeas. I understand that, I was only twenty the last time that I needed braces but still I was uncomfortable enough with the idea of going back to having this mouth full of metal that society and apparently me in many ways still associate with children or childhood.
Thankfully those are not your only two options if you have teeth that you are not proud of. You don’t have to live with them and you don’t have to go back to your twelve year old self and get metal braces. Instead with the help of cosmetic dentists like Riverfront Dental, you can get set up with Invisalign. By now I am sure that you have probably heard of Invisalign before since it is so popular and has pretty much taken over the metal braces market. Invisalign does the same thing as traditional metal braces but instead of having these unsightly things in your mouth, the cosmetic dentists at Riverfront Dental will set you up with clear casings that go over your teeth and will slowly realign your teeth back into position. While you should wear your Invisalign every day, the great thing about them is that first of all, you can’t really see them and second, if you have some sort of big event where you really just don’t want to wear them like a wedding or an important meeting, you have the option of totally removing them for an hour or two and no one will be the wiser.
If you have teeth that you are embarrassed by, check with your cosmetic dentist about setting you up with Invisalign.
