We look in the mirror almost every day and ideally, of course, we see a radiant smile. But not everyone is satisfied with what he or she sees in the mirror. There are many people who do not even dare to smile at themselves in the mirror. Let alone dare to smile at strangers on the street. Why not? Because their teeth are crooked, they have a noticeable gap between them or because that one front tooth is very different from the rest. Many people think that nothing can be done about this, that braces are something for children and adolescents and that there is nothing more to do as an adult at the orthodontist. Nothing could be further from the truth! At Felix & Bellus we work with Invisalign, the braces for adults.
Braces for adults
Wearing braces as an adult is nothing to be ashamed of. In fact, in our opinion, it’s something to be proud of! As soon as you walk into our practice, you take the first step in a process that is going to lead to more self-confidence and a bigger smile. You take matters into your own hands and decide to do something about your teeth. “Taking good care of yourself” is what we call it.
The Invisalign aligner is the ideal brace for adults. It is virtually invisible, does not irritate your lips or cheeks, and keeps your teeth and braces clean. The plastic braces are transparent, making them invisible in your vacation photos or the photos on your dating profile. People who don’t know you are wearing an aligner won’t even realize you’re wearing braces.
Smiling is healthy
People who are happy with their teeth smile more. And that’s good news, because laughing is healthy! Laughing is good for your mood, your body and your immune system. In fact, your body produces several nice substances when you laugh, such as dopamine, which makes you happier and more positive. Because you use lots of different muscles when you laugh, you burn quite a few calories with a good laugh. Laughing also produces extra white blood cells, boosting your immune system and making you less likely to get sick. Finally, laughing is also quite stress relieving, which in turn is good for your heart and blood vessels.
