Did you know that Invisalign could be better than a facelift?
In 2020 there was a 12 per cent increase in cosmetic dentistry and the global market is predicted to grow at an annual rate of 5%, increasing its value to an estimated £21 billion by 2026. Aesthetic dentistry is booming and this is fuelled by huge rise in demand for Invisalign invisible braces.
The ‘Zoom boom’ has been a key driver in why dentists are experiencing a rise in interest for teeth tweakments. People have been spending so much time on virtual calls, constantly looking at their faces and teeth, making them more aware of their imperfections. And due to cancelled events and holidays some of us have more disposable income, another reason for the spike in the popularity of cosmetic dentistry.
We all know Invisalign can help straighten teeth, but these invisible braces can bring so many other benefits too. Did you know that the teeth and the jaw are the ‘frame’ of our face, or the scaffold. You can look at the upper half of the face and not necessarily know how old someone is, but it’s the lower third of the face that can be most telling of age. It’s for this reason that dentistry and aesthetic dermatology work best when approached holistically.
You might be convinced that you need fillers or another aesthetic treatment but in truth it is dental treatment might be more suitable, effective and produce the most natural-looking result. According to Mintel 41% of people feel that their oral health is connected to their emotional health
As we get older, not only do our collagen levels reduce in our skin, but our teeth also begin to collapse inwards, which ‘narrows’ our mouth causing a loss of volume in the lower face. Invisalign aligners are brilliant as they help to counteract this by widening the smile while also straightening teeth, adding structure and support to your mouth and reducing the appearance of sagging. And with braces can be hidden behind a mask, it’s easy to see why patient numbers have doubled.
