The Demand for Some Cosmetic Treatments Has Risen By As Much As 116% in the Last 12 MonthsThere are those who would say the rise in cosmetic dentistry is because of celebrities or social media and the pervasiveness of the internet. What about the fact that, as time as has progressed, dental professionals have found safer, faster ways of effectively treating patients? That’s not to say that some patients get cosmetic dentistry to copy a smile they’ve seen on TV, or because they’re worried about how they’ll look in their display picture. All we’re saying is that the dental industry might deserve some credit for streamlining treatments so that they are safe, effective and affordable.
So, What Is The New Research Saying?According to the new research, the demand for invisible braces is up 60% and tooth whitening is up 116% from last year. It isn’t hard to see the attraction in invisible braces—they are a great way to get the treatment you need without anyone seeing metal running across your teeth. Also, invisible braces such as Invisalign can be removed—which means you aren’t restricted in what you eat and you can maintain oral hygiene. With traditional braces there’s always the chance your teeth will be stained after years of wearing braces.
What Curtis R. Couch Can Do For Your Smile…Since we’ve already covered tooth whitening this month let’s look at Invisalign and how it can help straighten your smile. There are aesthetic as well as health benefits to a straight smile. At our Thousand Oaks dental practice, we offer Invisalign as a great virtually invisible way to straighten your teeth and improve your self-confidence.
Invisalign: the Amazing Invisible Way to Straighten Teeth…Invisalign is great if you have minor overcrowding and don’t wish to undertake complex orthodontic treatment. Invisalign works by using a series of clear aligners that gently move your teeth into position. If you are a suitable candidate for Invisalign the dentists at our Thousand Oaks dental practice can offer you an orthodontic treatment that is fast, affordable and attractive. Invisalign is amazing not just because it’s practically invisible but also because:
- The aligners are comfortable: there are no sharp metal edges that could cut and irritate your gums.
- They are removable—you can eat and maintain your oral hygiene as you normally would. Also they can be taken out for special occasions.
