Have you ever heard of Invisalign? If you are an adult in need of a cosmetic dentist (nearly 30% of cosmetic dentistry patients are adults), you will want to make sure you find the best dentist possible. A mediocre dentist can be risky for your health and your wallet.
Straight teeth are so important in our society, which operates on the constant judging of one another based on physical appearance. Professional, romantic, and Platonic opportunities may be limited with missing, crooked or yellow teeth.
But, back to Invisalign. Invisalign is a brand of invisible braces that you can get through the dentist. They are clear, plastic and removable, making the process of eating much easier than it is with a mouth full of metal braces. The October Journal of Clinical Orthodontics printed statistics showing that the average cost of adult braces in America is $4,800.
51% of patients who seek cosmetic dentistry are aged 41 to 60 years. If you are in that age range, metal braces are certainly not a desire. How can one retain a professional look with braces which connote the awkward teen phase? Invisalign braces help avoid this predicament.
Perhaps your oral conundrum is not one of straightness, but one of absence. Mini dental implants are another popular tool of cosmetic dentistry. Whereas Invisalign braces are plastic, mini and traditional implants are made of various titanium alloys and they have a success rate, according to scientific literature, of 98%.
