We all know that your smile is one of the first things that people notice about us. But did you know that the appearance of your smile affects even the way that people see us? According to a recent survey, the appearance of our smile can lead people to think certain things about our personality and personal life- before they even know us! That’s why it is important to take care of your oral health- especially when it comes to alignment! At Fairfield Smiles By Design, we offer Invisalign in Fairfield, CT for a straight, attention-grabbing smile!

Why Do I Need a Straight Smile?

A properly aligned smile can improve your overall oral health, but it also has very obvious cosmetic benefits. In a study conducted by Kelton, over 1,047 Americans were asked to give their opinions about people based only on their pictures. The pictures featured different looking people with varying smiles and teeth. The results of the study found that people with straight teeth are more often perceived as happier, surrounded by people who love them and are professionally successful.

Additionally, the survey participants thought that people with straighter teeth were 45 percent more likely to land a job than a person with the same skill set with crooked teeth. People with straight teeth were judged 58 percent more likely to be wealthy as compared to people with crooked smiles.

With data that so clearly suggests that a straighter smile is beneficial for your health, mentality and social standing, now is the time to correct a crooked smile with Invisalign.

What is Invisalign?

Invisalign helps our patients straighten their teeth quickly and discreetly. Instead of relying on metal wires that are painful and unsightly, Invisalign relies on clear, comfortable plastic aligners.

These aligners are inserted into the mouth and gently align the teeth into proper placement. Every patient has a personalized treatment plan with a series of aligners that are customized for your smile.

Every two weeks, you change out one aligner for the next set- this allows for continual movement of the teeth until you reach the desired alignment. Because the aligners are removable, you can eat and drink without discomfort by replacing them beforehand. You can also maintain excellent oral health with Invisalign since the aligners can be completely removed for brushing and flossing.
