Appearance is everything in today’s world. Cars painted red suggest that they’re fast and powerful. Green paper packaging may indicate that it’s recycled and leaves a reduced carbon footprint. A black suit can symbolize sophistication or power. But what does your smile say about you? In a professional work environment, the condition and appearance of your smile can make or break any situation.

For Instance


Whether it’s a lecture, board meeting, or just friendly conversation by the water cooler, you always want the attention to be on what you’re saying. Traditional metal braces are more obvious to the casual observer because they may be shiny and stand out from the surface of your teeth. Invisalign is clear, practically invisible, and are less of a distraction for the wearer and the audience. The clear aligners will help secure your credibility as a responsible adult, ready to take on whatever workday challenges you have to face.


Invisalign is designed for ease of use and convenience for the wearer. Need to brush your teeth before that big meeting with your boss? Need to floss after your lunch break? No problem. The aligners are removable for eating and cleaning. They’re easy to clean as long as you have a toothbrush and toothpaste handy. In addition, a protective case keeps Invisalign safe and secure while not being worn.


Nervous about asking your boss for a promotion or presenting your analysis of last quarter’s sales? If you’re happy with your smile, then you’re guaranteed to feel more confident about yourself. Dr. Hummert knows that treatment with Invisalign can assist in that department. You’ll know that your smile is improving, and no one will know you are wearing an orthodontic appliance!

Treatment Time
