It seems like everyone you see in the media always has perfectly even rows of teeth. Singers, actors, television hosts – they all have dazzling smiles that the camera loves. How do they do it? There are many different options for cosmetic dentistry, and when it comes to straightening teeth, there’s an affordable option that can work for you as well as it works for big-time celebrities. Here’s how you can give your teeth the star treatment with Invisalign in Jacksonville.
What is Invisalign?
If you’re an adult or a teenager who wants to straighten their teeth but aren’t comfortable with getting braces, Invisalign can be a great alternative. It uses a series of clear, plastic trays custom-fitted for your mouth. Each tray is worn for about two weeks at a time, during which they make slight adjustments to your mouth and take you one step closer to your goal. Most patients see results at around twelve months.
What are the Advantages of Invisalign?
Since the Invisalign trays are clear, it’s easy to retain a more professional look. You won’t have to worry about unsightly brackets and wires when flashing a confident smile. Additionally, there’s a lot less hassle than with braces; Invisalign is removable, so there are no restrictions on what you can eat and it’s much easier to clean your teeth. Plus, with no metal installations, you’ll be spending a lot less time at the dentist’s office; you’ll only need to come in about every six weeks (or two months, in some cases) for examinations to make sure your teeth are following the adjustment schedule.
What Celebrities Have Used Invisalign?
You may be surprised to learn that some of your favorite celebrities were using Invisalign even while all eyes were on them. For example, while making Minority Report, Tom Cruise used the treatment to keep up his handsome appearance while adjusting his teeth during filming. Oprah Winfrey also used Invisalign while her show was on the air and had no reservations about wearing her trays on camera.
Other celebrities who have benefitted from Invisalign include:
- Kate Middleton
- Serena Williams
- Zac Efron
- Keira Knightley
- Khloe Kardashian
Before getting any orthodontal treatment, it’s important to speak with your dentist and make sure you understand all the options. Every mouth is unique, so there may be factors that can affect how long the process will last.
