Heartthrob Zac Efron used to have a gap between his two front teeth when he starred in the hit Disney movie High School Musical. Fast forward to his 2017 film adaptation of Baywatch, Zac is seen to be sporting not just a toned body (not to mention the abs) but also better set of teeth.
Yes, the gap is magically gone. His secret? Invisalign.
Efron is just one among the numerous celebrities who opted to have their teeth treated minus the awkwardness of traditional braces. But before you hunt for Invisalign providers in the UK, here are some facts you need to know.
It Is Not for Everyone
Although most people would want to have their teeth straightened sans the wires and pain, Invisalign is, sadly, not suited for everyone. Individuals who have minor teeth problems are the best candidate for it. Consult with your dentist to see if you qualify for the treatment.
It Can Be Painful
An appliance is inside your mouth for at least 22 hours trying to align your teeth, of course, it would cause a little pain and discomfort. But this is nothing compared to having your braces regularly and manually adjusted by your dentist.
Temporary Lisp Is Expected
You would have a hard time talking with an appliance inside your mouth. It would take some time to adjust, but you would be able to speak normally again after a short period.
You Wear It at Least Six Months
But it would definitely be shorter than having traditional braces. You wear your Invisalign aligners for at least six months for the results to show. But it varies from one person to another, depending on their teeth structure.
