Is Invisalign Worth the Cost?
Can you put a price tag on the perfect smile? The shape, colour, and alignment of your teeth can have a big impact on your confidence. Just as a perfect smile can be a huge boost to your self-esteem, crooked or discoloured teeth can hurt your confidence. Crooked teeth are not just visually unattractive, but they're also associated with an increased risk for oral health problems and bad breath– yikes!If you spend time thinking about ways to hide your teeth or avoid smiling, you’re missing out on a full life. Smiling in social and professional situations sends a message that you’re approachable and friendly. Not smiling or looking down when speaking in an attempt to "hide your teeth" sends the opposite message. Rather than attracting people with your engaging personality and bright smile, you’ll be sending a “please don't bother me” message. That’s not a great first impression to make when going on a date or interviewing for a big job.Don’t let bad teeth ruin your confidence. If you’re embarrassed by a crooked or an imperfect smile, it’s never too late to make a change. Imagine life with a straight smile and no more crooked teeth: you’ll laugh without hesitation, speak confidently at your next presentation, and smile freely on a date without the fear of scaring your date away!
What does Invisalign actually cost?
If you’re dreaming about a straighter smile but worried about the cost of treatment, you may be surprised to discover just how affordable Invisalign actually is. The cost of Invisalign aligners is comparable to the cost of braces. Even better, many dental insurance plans provide coverage for both traditional metal braces and Invisalign treatment.The exact price of Invisalign can be determined after a consultation. Just like with braces, more complicated alignment cases may require longer treatment times and result in higher costs. However, most cases only take between 18 to 24 months to correct. Invisalign incrementally shifts your teeth. While you may not see a huge difference at the start of treatment, after just 4 to 6 weeks you'll begin to notice your teeth starting to shift and your confidence increasing.Invisalign treatment costs – including all records, x-rays, and retainers – are similar to the cost of traditional braces. However, unlike braces, they are not obvious and embarrassing metal brackets and wires on your teeth. Instead, each aligner tray is custom made to fit your mouth and gradually move your teeth into their correct position. Aligner trays can be removed during eating and brushing, and are easy to clean. They’re a discreet, affordable teeth straightening solution. No one will know you are straightening your teeth but you!
Invisalign: a smart investment for your health and confidence.
Investing in your smile today will pay dividends for years to come. Not only will your straighter teeth give you a huge confidence boost, but correcting bite alignment and fixing teeth spacing is important for your oral health, too. Crooked and overcrowded teeth are harder to brush and clean. The result: tiny food particles get trapped between your teeth, causing a build-up of plaque and tartar along the gum line. While this build up may initially be imperceptible to the naked eye, over time the tartar will push away the gum line from the teeth, creating pockets that are susceptible to bacterial infection. Hello, gum disease and bad breath!You can’t put a price tag on smiling with confidence. Imagine going through life with a confident smile: would you finally ask for that big promotion? Will you go back to your 10-year high school reunion and surprise everyone you see? Would you go on more dates? With straight teeth, the world is your oyster!Discover the difference that Invisalign can make for your life.
