A Straight Smile Is the Best First Impression

We all know the saying, “Don’t judge a book by it’s cover”, but the reality is: we all do. First impressions are really important and your smile says a lot about you. That’s why at dk Orthodontics in Parsippany and Caldwell, we care about not only helping our teens, but about helping adults as well. A straight smile is crucial to making that first impression count...and we know that metal braces as an adult isn’t really the look you’re going for. Because of this we offer Invisalign Adult! The clear alternative to metal braces.

A recent study* by Invisalign, confirms that “people with straight teeth are perceived more likely to be happy, successful and second date worthy.” Speaking of dating, 55% of respondents said that a straight smile had a better likelihood of attracting potential partners on a dating site by their picture alone. So snap that selfie with confidence!

Already found your partner but still think straighter teeth would have a strong impact on your life? You’re right! 58% of respondents said that they perceive people with straight teeth to be more successful in business and their professional lives. That means a straight smile can be a big component of your interview kit, rocking your next presentation or winning that next sale.

So how does Invisalign Adult work?

During a consultation at dk Orthodontics, Dr. Denise Kitay determines the exact movements necessary to get your teeth into the correct position. Then the dk Ortho team has a custom-made series of aligners created for you and only you. As you replace each Invisalign aligner with the next in the series, your teeth will gradually and gently shift-little by little until they have straightened to the final position Dr. Kitay has prescribed.

Other than a great first impression once you’ve finished, Invisalign offers a great first impression while you’re working to achieve that great smile:

Clear: Invisalign aligners are virtually invisible. No hiding your smile in meetings, engagement photos or school pick-ups, and no closed-lipped selfies here!

Comfortable: Invisalign aligners are extremely comfortable. They’re made out of smooth, sleek plastic that won’t irritate.

Removable: Don’t want your date to know you’re working on your smile? Keep them our little secret and take them off for the evening...just remember to put them back in before you go to sleep! It may not seem like it, but they’re constantly working while you go throughout your day.

Convenient: You only need to visit us at dk Orthodontics about once every 2-3 months to ensure that your treatment progress is on track. Fewer visits to the orthodontist, means fewer interruptions of your busy schedule. Whew!

Cost Effective: At dk Orthodontics, Invisalign comes at the same price tag as traditional braces. No need to shell out extra cash to avoid metal mouth.
