A Confident Smile Is the Best First Impression

 

We all know that we shouldn’t ever “judge a book by it’s cover,” as the saying goes, but first impressions are really important, and your smile is a big part of that impact. At Neumann & Westover Family Dentistry, we focus not only on dental health but also on how your dentition impacts your entire facial structure and appearance. It turns out that a straight smile, which is the key component to a confident smile, is crucial to making that first impression count.

Unfortunately metal braces as an adult isn’t the most desired look. But fear not… there are other options! We offer Invisalign and ClearCorrect– virtually clear alternatives to metal braces.
In fact, a recent study* by Invisalign confirms that people with straight teeth are perceived more likely to be happy and successful.

So how do Invisalign and ClearCorrect work?

During a consultation at Neumann & Westover Family Dentistry, Dr. Westover will determine the exact movements necessary to get your teeth into the correct position. Then the team has a custom-made series of aligners created for you. As you replace each aligner with the next in the series, the teeth will gradually and gently shift until they have straightened to the final position Dr. Westover has outlined in his treatment plan for you.

Of course you’ll make a great first impression once you’ve finished, but unlike traditional metal braces Invisalign and ClearCorrect offer a great first impression while you’re working to achieve your final goal:

1. They’re Clear: Invisalign and ClearCorrect aligners are virtually invisible. No hiding your smile in meetings or photos!

2. They’re Comfortable: The aligners are extremely comfortable as they’re developed from smooth, sleek plastic.

3. They’re Removable: You have the option of taking them off for the evening… just remember to put them back in before you go to sleep! It may not seem like it, but they’re constantly working while you go through your day.

First Impressions are super important to us too – call us today for a complimentary consultation with Dr. Westover to assess if you are a good candidate for Invisalign or ClearCorrect. We look forward to meeting you!
