If you haven’t been genetically blessed with a Hollywood-worthy straight smile, chances are, you have considered getting the shiny contraption of adult nightmares…
Well, that is, until recently, when you realized there was a better (less intrusive and more affordable, yet boasting a faster treatment period) option available:
But before you hastily key in the 3 numbers at the back of your credit card for the first invisible braces provider that pops up on your IG or FB, there are a few questions you should ask beforehand – especially if you want the smile of your dreams, without any nightmares along the way.
1. Do you provide in-person dental consultations with a dentist/orthodontist?
While this can be difficult to hear, not everyone is a suitable candidate for invisible braces. While invisible braces are a great choice for minor or moderate orthodontic issues, they are not great for correcting more complex conditions.
That’s why it’s important to ensure you will be getting in-person dental consultations with a licensed dentist or orthodontist. Zenyum makes this step mandatory.
And during the consultation, you can expect to have your dental impressions and X-rays taken. This is done to check for any pre-existing gum or teeth conditions which may impede your treatment or possibly worsen during teeth-straightening!
Getting your teeth straightened may sound reasonably simple, but it is a process that has long-term effects. So it’s highly recommended that you enroll in a process that closely involves a licensed professional.
2. Do you provide X-rays?
A yes or a no reply could result in a very different experience. You definitely want X-rays done because 3D scans and selfies of your teeth do not reveal all oral issues, especially when some aren’t visible to the naked eye.
3. Do you offer interproximal reduction (IPR)?
Just so you know, interproximal reduction (IPR) involves carefully removing small amounts of enamel from between teeth to reduce their width (make them narrower). This process is sometimes necessary to create the space needed for straightening crowded teeth.
In other words, some people might need IPR for a more aesthetically-pleasing teeth-straightening result.
In you’re in doubt – always trust the doctor or dentist looking at your teeth during the consultation. They are in the best position to know if your teeth require IPR prior to straightening.
You may be inclined to shrug this off, but if you’re invested in getting that million dollar smile, why not make sure that you’re doing it the safer way?
4. What happens if I'm not satisfied with my smile?
To prevent yourself from landing in a situation where your teeth are all messed-up but you can’t do anything about it, make sure you know exactly what your options are if things don’t go well.
