Celebrities live in the spotlight, whether they are filming a television show or movie or just having a snapshot taken by a paparazzo while they are out at lunch. As such, having straight teeth and a beautiful smile are that much more important.
With the inception of Invisalign, celebrities as well as the general populace have been able to break away from cumbersome braces and enjoy a far more natural looking dental appliance. Where braces require the use of uncomfortable and unattractive metal wires and brackets, Invisalign consists of smooth acrylic material that is virtually unnoticeable. Additionally, Invisalign appliances are removable which means that they can be easily cleaned. Invisalign also makes your diet so much simpler. Whereas braces severely limit the type of foods you can eat, Invisalign allows you to eat whatever you want as the appliance is easy to clean and can be removed during meals.Any celebrity looking to take advantage of Invisalign must first schedule an appointment with a qualified provider who will perform an initial consultation, discuss the particulars with the patient, and determine whether or not he or she is a good candidate for Invisalign.Afterwards, the orthodontist will take 3D images of the teeth so that a treatment plan can be determined. In this way, the practitioner can ascertain the progress that the teeth will make while undergoing Invisalign treatment. Using the images and impressions of the teeth, custom Invisalign aligners will be made out of BPA-free acrylic that is designed specifically to avoid irritation. These aligners can be worn all day but can also be removed for tooth brushing and for meals. And, let’s not forget that they are practically invisible so who’s to know that they are being worn at all!Every two weeks or so, the aligners will be switched out so as to continue the shifting of the teeth towards the desired location. The treatment length for adults is typically about a year with teenagers requiring a slightly longer period of time on average. For best results and for the timeliest completion, the aligners should be worn between 20 and 22 hours each day.Thanks to Invisalign, celebrities and every adult and teen out there can confidently smile in each and every photograph.
