You never liked your smile. You always looked in the mirror and saw your crooked teeth and wish that it all could be changed. But as a kid, you never had braces. It just never worked out that you could.

As an adult, you still are unsatisfied with your smile. Your teeth still are not straight, and you notice it every day before you head out the door. However, you think to yourself, “There is no way I am getting braces now! That would not fly at my work!” You are not alone in your sentiments. Many adults want to straighten their teeth, but do not want to be seen as the ‘adult with braces’ at their work.

But today, there is a solution. You do not have to have braces in order to enhance your smile. Today there is Invisalign, and it is changing smiles almost invisibly.

Sound too good to be possible? Keep reading more to discover how Invisalign could fit into your life, and give you the smile that you have always wanted!

What is Invisalign?

At an Invisalign consultation, Dr. Monteagudo will discuss Invisalign with you, and decide if the aligners can work for you. While it is rumored that Invisalign cannot be used for extreme dental issues, Invisalign has been able to help all sorts of different cases including, spaced teeth, overly crowded teeth, cross-bite, over-bite, and even under-bite cases.

If Invisalign can work for you, Dr. Monteagudo will chart a course of care that will detail the way that the teeth can shift into position. Every two to three weeks, you will receive a new aligner that you will wear 24 hours a day, and 7 days a week. You can take out the invisible aligner to eat, drink, brush your teeth, and drink. In turn, you can take your aligners out to eat anything that you want. You don’t have any food restrictions—caramel apples, carrot sticks, and pears are all up for holds!

By also being able to remove the aligners when you brush your teeth, you are able to maintain regular brushing and flossing habits. You do not need to learn a completely new system of oral hygiene like you need with braces. Because you can maintain your dental hygiene, you can keep your teeth healthier and unstained even while your teeth become straighter!

But How Much Does It Cost?

So Invisalign sounds appealing, but there has to be a catch, right? The price has to be expensive, right?

In fact, the price of Invisalign is comparable to the price of traditional braces. Insurance plans typically cover the same amount towards Invisalign as they would braces, so you can have the freedom to change your smile without anyone seeing it, at an affordable price.
