Summer Smiles

I am a member of the Invisalign Advisory Board, and am receiving complimentary treatment. All opinions are fully my own.


I’m in total disbelief that summer is here. Oklahoma schools get out much earlier than California schools, and we’re wrapping up the school year this week. (Wita had her last day of class yesterday, and she’s just a tad bit excited, as you can see.)

Look at that smile, will ya? Summer or not, when it comes to year-round confidence, a glowing smile outshines everything. In a recent study of over 1,000 women*, nearly one in five said the most important feature to look the best at all times was their teeth. Women also ranked teeth as the #1 feature that most impacts a first impression, with one in four believing that straightening teeth could take five years off a woman’s appearance.

I know that I’ve gained more confidence in regards to my smile since I started Invisalign a year and a half ago. Virtually invisible braces are the way to go, folks. Especially if you are, you know, not 15 years old. I’m hoping to be completely done this fall, although I’ve recently switched orthodontists due to the move, and I’m waiting to hear if his plan meshes with the original one. Fingers crossed!

Thinking of straightening your teeth, but don’t want the hassle of metal brackets? Check out my Invisalign video and see if Invisalign could work for you!

*The Beauty Survey was conducted between March 11th and March 23rd among 1,038 nationally representative American women ages 18 and over, using an e-mail invitation and online survey. The survey was conducted by Kelton and commissioned by the makers of Invisalign clear aligners.
