After you have spent the time wearing braces in order to have that perfect smile you always wanted, you will certainly want to do what is necessary to keep it. One of the best ways to keep your teeth beautifully straightened is by wearing a retainer. Whatever route you took to get your teeth straightened, you can benefit from Vivera® retainers. These innovative retainers come from the makers of Invisalign® but will work regardless of which teeth-straightening system you received.
Retainers will help keep the teeth from shifting back into their former position after the braces have been removed. If you think about the investment you made to have your teeth aligned properly, you don’t want to lose what you achieved by doing nothing to preserve the improvement. The investment is not just one of a financial nature. You spent a lot of time ensuring you maintained the best orthodontic care. You followed all the rules and took good care of your teeth. Think about all the food you did not eat because you were afraid it would get stuck in your braces. All the difficulty you had keeping your teeth and the braces clean is not something you can take lightly, and neither is the appearance of the metal in your mouth. The point here is that you invested a lot of time and endured a lot of aggravations in order to get your teeth lined up properly. Losing all that you accomplished would be a shame.
Vivera® retainers give you an easy and convenient way to preserve what you gained with the braces. The same state-of-the-art technology that was utilized to make Invisalign® aligners is put to use in making these retainers. They are custom made by 3D imaging your teeth. This means that each retainer fits you perfectly. These are not off-the-shelf items that anyone could use. They are yours and yours alone. Not only do Vivera® retainers give you a precise fit, but they are also much more comfortable.
Vivera® retainers are made from proprietary thermoplastic material for added strength. This improves their reliability and effectiveness. The material also makes the retainer more durable. It is highly resistant to breaking or cracking. As an added benefit, these transparent retainers are virtually invisible, letting you more easily show off your newly perfected smile. They can also replace your current retainer if you want something more personalized and less noticeable.
