Confident Smile

This post is sponsored by Invisalign. Thank you for supporting SITC. 

When I was in 4th or 5th grade, I can remember going to the dentist and telling him that I needed braces on my bottom teeth. For the most part, my teeth were straight, but a portion of the lower level seemed to overlap. The dentist told my parents and I he didn’t think the misalignment was severe enough to introduce me to the world of orthodontics, since the braces yesteryear were a big deal, and a financial burden. But as the years progressed, my teeth shifted further, and it’s something  that I have always been conscious about. For a longest time, I smiled without showing my teeth, and eventually I perfected a smile where only my top teeth were visible.


Fixing my smile is something that I have been contemplating for years, but growing up I would have been faced with a mouth full of metal.  and recently, my new dentist and I have been discussing the benefits of Invisalign, and I was surprised by the evolution of the technology over the years. After meeting some Invisalign users at a conference a few months ago, I think I am finally ready to take the next step. I want to be able to smile, and feel confident about doing so. Not to mention the shifting of my teeth have caused other concerns, like extensive tartar buildup, as well as affecting my other teeth.


Invisalign is effective in treating complex teeth issues. as well as cosmetic problems, without the need for wires and brackets. The Invisalign patented technology continues to evolve, increasing the complexity of issues which it can treat, from underbite to cross bite, deepbite to overbite, and overly crowded to widely spaced tooth problems. Minor cosmetic issues may be corrected using the Invisalign Express, which is a quick, affordable option.

My doctor feels that I am a candidate for the Invisalign Express.  The express option is a good solution for tooth movement which occurs as a result of aging, or when retainers are not worn regularly.  Results from Invisalign’s express treatment can be seen in as little as 10 weeks, and require only 5 sets of clear aligners. I’m really looking forward to getting the smile that I’ve always wanted! Stay tuned!

  1. I think invisalign is awesome. I got treatment a few years ago to correct one crooked tooth on the bottom that was never worth it to me to want to get braces for as a kid, but always bothered me. Great solution 🙂

  2. It’s actually a nice and helpful piece of information. I’m glad that you

  3. I had Invisalign and couldn’t be more happier with the results. I am now looking to get them for my daughter. It’s amazing how far technology has come.
