With the COVID-19 pandemic has come mandatory mask-wearing in many cities. Are you one of those people who is quite happy to be hiding your smile?
Do you have crooked teeth and a smile which makes you self-conscious? Do you hate getting photographs taken and don’t mind keeping your teeth under wraps?
Well, masks won’t be mandatory forever. Meanwhile, are you content to delay addressing your teeth issues even though they pose a health problem for you as well? Crooked teeth are harder to clean and thus are much more prone to cavities. Perhaps you are worried about how much braces cost and the time involved in getting braces.
You have probably known people who had the metal and wire braces, and they experienced a number of problems with them. These included frequent, painful dental visits, difficulty brushing their teeth, broken wires, restrictions on what they could eat and do, and the fact that metal braces can take up to 2 years to successfully straighten teeth.
Other types of braces include “low visibility braces”, “hidden” or “lingual” braces that go behind your teeth, and then there are the clear, invisible braces known as aligners.
Patients and their parents want an option that is affordable, pain-free, and which reduces the hassle and time that traditional braces usually require. Parents also want to know that they are getting a professional they can trust whose treatment will result in a beautiful smile.
Dr. Jay Patel believes that beautiful and affordable smiles should be accessible to everyone. He has helped hundreds of patients, and he is a certified SureSmile Aligners provider. He knows that many people need braces to fix functional problems, but even more patients could benefit from them to straighten their teeth, improve their smiles, and even the shape of their faces. He wants to help you.
SureSmile Aligners are clear, removable plastic molds that gradually move your teeth. They are an esthetically pleasing alternative to braces, especially for minor tooth movements that improve your smile. Here is how the process works.
Dr. Patel will use a scanner to take a fast and precise 3D digital scan of your teeth. Then with special software, he will create the plan for how your teeth need to move to achieve your better smile. He creates a before and after preview so that you can see how your teeth will be aligned by the end of the process. Then your custom aligners are made using a state-of-the-art printing process that follows the digital plan.
For most adults, treatment lasts up to a year, which is about half the time traditional braces take. SureSmile Aligners are to be worn all day and you only remove them for meals and for brushing your teeth before you put them back in. Because there are no wires and brackets to get in the way of your life, you can still eat your favorite foods and play in sports activities.
Dr. Patel will see you regularly, and as your teeth slowly move, you will need a new set of liners to keep that movement going. Each new set is designed to move your teeth closer to the goal, so you will feel a little extra pressure for the first few days of each set of new liners. The best part is that your smile is slowly improving, and no one notices because the SureSmile Aligners are invisible braces!
Dr. Patel’s process makes it easy for you to get started with SureSmile Aligners.
So, there is no need for you to be walking around with crooked teeth, worrying about the cost of straightening, or a long, painful process with food stuck in your braces. Don’t worry about the valuable family or work time it would take with frequent appointments. Because SureSmile Aligners are created digitally, the whole process is faster and has a more predictable timeline.
Dr. Patel has an affordable solution for you to achieve the smile you’ve always wanted with minimal appointments. Enjoy not even looking like you are wearing braces or worrying about what you can eat or if you can play sports.
Just think of how much better you will feel about yourself and your smile with beautifully aligned teeth! With SureSmile Aligners, you will get your very best smile to flash when mask season is over.
