The Gift Of A Smile

The Gift Of A Smile

I am an Invisalign Teen® brand spokesperson and all opinions expressed are my own. Full disclosure

When our children are little, they write a long list for Santa usually consisting of the hottest toys of the season. But, once the gifts are unwrapped, the item they had to have either breaks or holds their interest for a short period of time.  As they become teenagers, they still love getting presents, but now the gifts are ipads, computers, hover boards, and as many pairs of sneakers as they can fit in their closet.  While those presents are fun, the novelty wears off pretty quickly.  So, when you are thinking about gifts this year, think about something they may not realize they want, but they will be grateful they got in the future.  Give them the gift of a smile.

According to a recent teen confidence survey, 88% of teens are self-conscience about their looks, 87% of teens wish to alter their appearance, and 26% of teens feel they are unattractive. In a world where taking the perfect selfie is the goal of many a teen, these stats are no surprise.  For teens, their appearance affects their self esteem and having crooked teeth prevent many teens from smiling.  So, why not give your teen the gift of a beautiful smile this year?

If your teen has crooked teeth, Invisalign Teen® clear aligners can correct even the most complex orthodontic issues.  Since the aligners are clear, hardly anyone will notice your teen is wearing them.  This allows them to go through treatment without the embarrassment or discomfort of metal brackets and wires.  While it may not be the first gift you think of this year, it is surely the best gift you could ever give your teen.  A beautiful smile will allow your teen to feel self-confident, which is the best gift they could ever receive.
