On May 9, 2013, Khloe Kardashian is all smiles, walking out of Dr. Sands office. At the age of 28-years old , Khloe took the plunge and got Invisalign to straighten her teeth! She states, “Thank you Dr. Sands for being the best dentist ever!” With her busy schedule of tabloids, starring in both Keeping Up With the Kardashians and Khloe and Lamar, and making appearances all over town, Invisalign was the answer!
What is Invisalign you ask? For starters, the Invisalign system is the virtually invisible way to straighten your teeth and achieve the beautiful dazzling smile you have always dreamed of. A series of Invisalign trays or clear aligners are custom made for your teeth and your teeth only to progressively straighten!
The reasons why celebrities like Khloe choose Invisalign, and why anyone would choose Invisalign include esthetics, convenience, self-esteem, comfort, effective, safe, and cleanliness.
ESTHETICS: Invisalign esthetically is remarkable. With clear aligners used to straighten your teeth, being in the limelight or in the boardroom will seem less daunting.
CONVENIENCE: Who doesn’t like convenience? Invisalign frees up your busy schedule, with office visits only every six-eight weeks as well as less time tediously having to brush and floss through traditional braces.
SELF-ESTEEM: Having a smile you are not proud of would effect anyone’s self-esteem. While you are taking the steps to get a beautiful smile, Invisalign allows you to smile proudly without the look of metal brackets and wires.
COMFORT: Generally speaking, traditional braces can be very painful. However, studies show patients wearing Invisalign have no complaints of pain or of discomfort. It is virtually painless!
EFFECTIVE: Whether you have crowding, spacing, overbite, underbite, crossbite, or even a combination, Invisalign effectively treats a variety of cases. Invisalign has done a tremendous amount of research to make it as and in many cases more effective than traditional braces.
SAFE: Invisalign is less likely to cause injuries and irritations to mouths because it is smooth in comparison to traditional braces. Consequently, traditional braces commonly rub raw spots on your cheeks and gums. On top of that, if the mouth area is bumped or bruised, it can cause additional injury.
CLEANLINESS: Invisalign shines when it comes to cleanliness. You can completely remove the trays to brush and floss, keeping your teeth healthy during your treatment. This alone can be the sole deciding factor for anyone to choose Invisalign because you can spends hours a week on brushing and flossing.
