Dating Woes? Boost Your Confidence with Straighter Teeth

Roses are red, violets are blue, your smile is… crooked? Nothing kills confidence faster than feeling insecure about crooked teeth. When you’re feeling insecure about your smile and appearance, this lack of confidence can affect your romantic life, too.In a world where modern dating has been reduced to swiping left and right in an app, your profile picture can make or break your dating chances. Worse, if you actually do land that dream date, once you do meet up in person those same old insecurities can bubble back up. Maybe you’re afraid to laugh or smile too much because you don’t want your date to notice your uneven teeth. Rather than being the best, most confident version of yourself, you’re insecure and nervous– killing any potential romance before you even get halfway through a cup of coffee.With Valentine’s Day right around the corner, there’s no time like the present to get serious about your smile. Invisalign is a discreet solution that will help you achieve your dream smile without the awkwardness or discomfort associated with braces. Plus, flexible payment plans mean Invisalign may be more affordable than you think.Ready to date with confidence? Here’s what you need to know about Invisalign:

1. Invisalign is a discreet teeth-straightening solution.

Let’s face it: the only thing worse than crooked teeth may be unsightly metal braces! As an adult, flashing a mouthful of metal is a sure-fire romance killer. Invisalign is just as effective as traditional braces and completely discreet. Invisalign is a series of clear retainers that are barely noticeable. You can remove them anytime, including when eating a meal. With Invisalign, you don’t need to worry about food getting caught in your metal braces while out on a date or those braces hurting your chances for a kiss goodnight!

2. Invisalign is comfortable and effective.

Conventional metal braces have a well-earned reputation for being uncomfortable. The protruding bits of metal can puncture and scratch the insides of your mouth and gums. Worse, every time you visit your orthodontist, your wires will get tightened, causing soreness and pain for several days after the visit. Invisalign is different. The smooth, clear aligners won’t scratch or irritate the inside of your mouth and gums. You'll gradually change aligners during treatment, moving toward your end goal of straighter teeth without the pain of metal braces.

3. Your oral health will benefit, too.

Crooked or uneven teeth not only hurt your dating confidence, but a less-than-perfect smile can also hurt your oral health. Since it’s harder to clean between crooked teeth, plaque can build up more quickly, increasing the risk for periodontal disease. In addition to an increased risk for oral health problems, you may also suffer from some pretty bad breath! Think about it: all those trapped bacteria and food particles can create a pretty nasty odor over time, no matter how much your brush or gargle mouthwash. Bad breath on a date is definite romance killer!

4. Invisalign is more affordable than you realize.

Most insurance companies will provide coverage for Invisalign just as they provide coverage for braces. Even if your insurance does not cover the full cost of your treatment, our orthodontists offer flexible payment plans to help you afford the smile of your dreams. At Docbraces, our payment plans take the total cost of insurance reimbursement off the top and then splits payment up over the length of your treatment. Even better, we offer no-interest payment plans that don't require a credit check.Don’t wait for cupid’s arrow to make the perfect love match.
