If it’s time for your teenager to get braces, you’re probably doing all kinds of research, trying to determine which option is best for your child and your family. At Journey Kids Dental, we love recommending Invisalign for teens, and we especially love combining an Invisalign treatment with GLO whitening to make sure they end up with a beautiful smile they feel confident about.
Invisalign for Teens
Just because we’re so used to seeing teenagers with metal braces doesn’t mean it’s the only option! Invisalign is perfect for people who want a straighter smile without having to draw a lot of attention to themselves. This can describe both adults AND teens!
In addition to being more inconspicuous, another reason to choose Invisalign for teens is the convenience factor. It can be difficult to get your teen to follow guidelines. Invisalign doesn’t require them to avoid certain foods, brush a particular way, or avoid certain activities (like contact sports).
Another perk is the fact that Invisalign often does the job faster than metal braces; you’re typically looking at 8-18 months versus 24 months for traditional braces. Invisalign also requires fewer checkups, which saves you time and money. For most people, the price ends up being about the same, but of course, every case is unique. Our team is always more than happy to give you a cost breakdown so you can make an informed decision.
Next Comes GLO Whitening!
Once your teenager has a nice, straight smile, it’s time to kick things up a notch with GLO whitening! GLO stands for Guided Light Optics, and it combines combines mild heat and light technology to get more lasting results than other whitening treatments or products on the market. We love to recommend this after an Invisalign treatment because it really helps teens to get the smile of their dreams. It’s that little extra boost of confidence they need to walk away from the experience feeling positive and relieved they went through with it.
The whitening treatment is delivered via a mouthpiece that your teen will wear for about thirty minutes in the office. The mouthpiece has a patented blue light that activates the whitening gel and makes it work super fast. No follow-up appointments needed, and no sensitivity to worry about at all.
A Confident Smile For Your Teen
We strongly feel that Invisalign for teens is the way to go, however, we’re always happy to discuss all of the options that are available. Every person and every mouth is different! At the end of the day, we just want to make sure your child has a healthy smile that they feel confident about. It’s a gift that will truly last them a lifetime.
