Oh, college! The most carefree of times… and the most pivotal of times.
If you are a college student (or the parent of a college student) you may be asking yourself whether college is a good time to invest in Impressions invisible aligners. The answer is even easier than a freshman prerequisite class: YES.
Am I Too Late? Too Early?
If you missed that “braces rush” that happened somewhere between fourth and ninth grade, you may be wondering whether you should even bother with straightening your teeth. If you are ready for improved dental hygiene and the smile of your dreams, then go for it! Even if you are the parent of a college student or the grandparent of a college student―go for it. It is never too late to improve the health, straightness, and all-around radiance of your smile.
On the flip side of that concern, you may be thinking, “If I waited until college to do this, shouldn’t I just wait until I’m out?” Sure, college may be filled with class, activities, and preparing yourself for your career, but it’s always better to take the plunge now than to wait. The post-grad world will be just as busy or likely busier. When you’re in grad school, starting that 9-5 hustle, planning your wedding, or preparing for your first child… you’ll be glad you already straightened your teeth during your time as an undergrad.
A Great Time to Invest In Yourself
College is already expensive. From the major expenses like tuition and rent, to smaller things like books and going out, you may be hesitant to spend any more money than you already are. That being said, college is a stepping stone to a brighter future. Similarly, Impressions is a stepping stone to the smile of your dreams.
Did you know that 48% of adults have reported that someone’s smile is the most memorable feature? This means more than just impressing the person you hope to take on your sorority/fraternity formal (though there’s nothing wrong with that!). It also means impressing professors, connections, and potential future employers. Of course, your impression on others has to do with far more than your smile. However, if you feel comfortable and confident, this will also help you feel at ease and free to focus on your goals.
It’s Easy and Convenient
College is busy and goes by in a flash, so the last thing you need is a burdensome chore on your hands. Fortunately, Impressions invisible aligners are as easy as they are convenient!
You start at the Impressions Hub, where (unlike most of our competitors) your scans will be taken by a board certified orthodontist. After that, the treatment will happen from the convenience of your home. It is truly the best of both worlds, sacrificing neither quality nor convenience.
Once you have your series of aligners, you’ll be ready to study and straighten anywhere. Take your aligners to college, to study abroad… and home to your parent’s place when it’s time to do laundry!
Your aligners may be easy and convenient, but they do require some care. Make sure you’re wearing your Impressions aligners 22 hours per day, brushing and flossing your teeth before putting them back in, and cleaning them gently. You’ll be used to the maintenance in no time at all, unlike that 8am class that always feels like it happens at sunrise!
