It is so strange how your body changes over the years as you age. Things you never thought about changing suddenly change, and then you find yourself not feeling very good about yourself. One example of this is teeth. I always saw people’s hair and skin changing as they age, but your teeth can change, too. This is what happened to me. I felt much more down about the way I smile than anything else. Getting Invisalign and also having my teeth whitened really helped me to get back to a happy mouth again.
Everyone knows that your teeth can be stained by things like tea and soft drink overtime. I am a very big tea drinker. I drink both the hot and cold kind. They are my two favorite drinks besides soft drinks. So, my teeth have always had trouble with looking stained. But the older I got, the worse it looked. I wanted to change that because it really made me older. And then, over time, my teeth became very crooked. This was something that I never expected to happen. My teeth always looked so nice and straight. But they became so crooked that they were a distraction for me and others. A distraction for me because I could feel how crooked they were in my mouth. A problem for other people because they were distracted by it. It was very odd. I needed to fix that.
I thought I would be stuck with a mouth full of metal braces, but my dentists introduced me to Invisalign and how they are perfect for older adults. First, he worked on making my teeth whiter, and that provided a really welcome change. Then, he got me fitted for the new system that would put my teeth back into place. I would say it took about 10 years off my face when the work was all done!
