A Smile Is a Universal Welcome!

Give Everyone a Welcoming Smile
If you are visiting a foreign country, then remember that a smile is the universal language. By offering someone a happy smile, you are opening the door to a new friendship. A beautiful smile is designed to welcome others, but when you have crooked teeth, it is time to visit an orthodontist for treatment. The best time to undergo orthodontic treatment is when you are a child because your facial bones are soft, helping your teeth to shift quickly into the right positions. However, many adults are visiting an orthodontic facility for their first evaluation because they also want to have a welcoming smile.
Aligners Can Give You a Better Smile
You might have only minor malocclusions that are repairable with clear plastic aligners. Invisalign aligners are suitable for teenagers or adults, and the devices are easy to wear. You will receive several sets of aligners that are made to move your teeth slowly into a better position in your mouth to correct your bite while giving you a gorgeous smile. An orthodontist will require you to wear aligners for most of the day and night, but you can remove the devices while you are eating meals or brushing your teeth. After two weeks, you will throw away the current set of aligners before changing to a new set in the series.
