In a world where social media reigns supreme, a selfie phenomenon has occurred, where people of all ages are constantly taking selfies to post onto their numerous social media accounts in search of likes and comments. Smartphones have long catered to this phenomenon by providing reversible camera lenses on their phones.

Straight Teeth: More Important Than Ever

With the selfie revolution, having straight teeth has become more important than ever. People are looking to achieve a great smile because they understand the attractiveness and pulling power of a warm, endearing smile. In addition, they understand that a great smile is great bait when it comes to fishing for comments and likes.

Centra Dental in southwest Houston is committed to giving you a perfect selfie smile. We understand that there is no greater antagonist to a great smile than crooked teeth, as they can be unsightly and distracting. We also understand that without a perfect smile, there is no perfect selfie. Thankfully, our Houston dental office can easily rectify this issue. We offer two options to straighten your teeth: traditional metal braces or Invisalign clear plastic trays.

Traditional Metal Braces

Centra Dental offers 3M metal braces that permanently fix to your teeth for the entire duration of your treatment plan. While some may find this cumbersome, the advantage of traditional metal braces is that they work round the clock at straightening your teeth. Therefore, as you wear the braces, you can be sure that they are working 24/7.

Invisalign Clear Braces

Invisalign clear braces is another option offered at our southwest Houston dental office. Invisalign clear braces are clear plastic tray aligners specifically molded to fit your teeth. These clear plastic trays are virtually unnoticeable, thus allowing wearers to smile more confidently. In addition, the clear plastic tray aligners are removable, thus making teeth easier to clean.

What an Invisalign Smile Will Do For You

One of the greatest factors in determining a person’s perception of you is your smile. Smiling not only makes you look more attractive, but it also has many social and health benefits. With so many benefits, smiling more greatly contributes to a happy, healthy lifestyle.

People often cite feeling self-conscious or ashamed about their smile because of crooked or misaligned teeth as reasons for not smiling more. Through the use of Invisalign clear braces, Centra Dental in southwest Houston resolves these issues and will get you smiling more in no time. Here are a few things an Invisalign smile will do for you:

An Invisalign Smile Will Make You More Approachable

Upon meeting people for the first time, a warm, genuine smile makes others feel at ease. A strong, confident smile radiates warmth and opens the door to engagement, while making a great first impression. There is a real physical attraction factor linked to the act of smiling that draws others towards you, while negative expressions such as frowns and glares push people away.

Invisalign gives patients a smile they can be proud of showing. In addition, Invisalign plastic tray aligners are barely noticeable. Therefore, even while wearing the plastic trays, patients will feel more confident in smiling more, because they know their teeth are getting straighter each day.

An Invisalign Smile Will Help Elevate Mood

When we feel great, a smile should come naturally. It's a physical sign of joy, happiness, amusement, or contentment. Although it's not natural to smile when we're sad or upset, research has shown that smiling, even fake smiling, can be the best thing to do when you're looking to brighten up your mood. The old adage of “fake it ‘til you make it” holds validity, as scientists have found that smiling on purpose changes brain chemistry.

Unfortunately, feeling self-conscious about one’s smile gets in the way of smiling more, thus creating an obstacle to feeling the positive emotions associated with smiling. Thankfully, clear braces from Centra Dental removes this obstacle. Invisalign patients will feel free to smile naturally and as often as they want, thus allowing them to experience the positive emotions associated with smiling.
