Have you considered getting Invisalign in DC?Can you imagine buttoning your blouse for work, throwing on a beautifully tailored blazer, and smiling in the mirror to see…. metal braces? When it comes to a polished appearance, traditional braces may lead employers to view you less professionally. In the same breath, studies have shown that Americans perceive those with straight teeth to be 45% more likely to land a job opportunity compared to those with crooked teeth. You shouldn’t be worried about your physical appearance affecting the chances of you being successful, especially when My Face My Smile offers Invisalign in DC. Don’t let metal in your mouth distract you from being your best self. Straighten your teeth in a modern, discreet way!

Orthodontics Have Come a Long Way!

You’ve probably seen historic pictures of dental patients wearing embarrassing full orthodontic headgear to straighten their teeth. Thanks to advances in modern dentistry, we finally have a way to maintain your mature, polished appearance while improving your smile. Leaps and bounds over the years have lead us to Invisalign clear aligners: a series of clear, removable aligners that no one can tell you’re wearing. The aligners are custom created just for you.

How does Invisalign work?

Your custom aligners apply a constant, gentle pressure to guide teeth into their correct locations. We ask that you consistently wear each set of aligners for about two weeks. We recommend only removing them only to eat, drink, brush, and floss. As you replace each aligner with the next in the series, your teeth will move gradually until you’re satisfied with a much healthier, straighter smile.

What are the benefits of Invisalign?

Did you know that using Invisalign clear braces in DC can give you results much faster than traditional braces ever could? Although we love seeing our patients often, you would only have to visit our dental team every six to eight weeks.  This is just one of several advantages Invisalign has over traditional orthodontics. You will:

  • Experience an immediate boost in confidence knowing that your orthodontic treatment is practically invisible!
  • Enjoy comfortable straightening from custom-fit aligners rather than sharp metal brackets and wires.
  • Have the ability to eat your favorite foods because of the versatility Invisalign offers by being removable.
  • Be able to keep your dental routine simple by removing your aligners to brush and floss your natural teeth.

You Don’t Have to Settle for Metal Braces!

If you’ve ever discussed straightening your teeth, you probably only talked about metal braces. This is most likely because they have been a tried and true form of dentistry for years. Although they are effective, you may have to deal with these disadvantages compared to Invisalign:

  • Embarrassing orthodontic gear accented with bright colored elastics that stand out against your natural teeth.
  • Uncomfortable forced shifts in teeth from frequent tightening appointments.
  • Changing in your diet to avoid damaging hard or sticky foods.
  • A more complicated dental routine that requires additional cleaning equipment.

My Face My Smile can help you fix your misaligned smile in a seamless way, preserving your mature appearance. Contact our Washington, DC office today to find out if these custom clear aligners are the right treatment for you. One of our friendly team members will be happy to set up an appointment for you.
