Fall in Love with Your Smile This Valentine’s Day

The day of love and romance is just around the corner, and we’re all daydreaming about fancy romantic dinner dates and, yes, chocolates. All that sounds delightful, but how about a little bit of extra self-care as Valentine’s Day treat? At Contemporary Orthodontics we have the perfect option for you to fall in love with your smile: Invisalign® treatment.

Keep reading to find out all about one of the most popular braces in the world.

Why Invisalign® Treatment Might be Perfect for You

There are many good reasons to wear braces, and there are many different types of braces. At Contemporary Orthodontics we offer a wide range of orthodontic options to cater to everyone’s needs such as regular metal braces, ceramic braces, lingual braces, Invisalign® clear aligners, expanders, and much more. Today, however, we’d like to provide you with more information about Invisalign® treatment and why it might be the right choice for you.

Invisibility, the Power of Discretion.

As their name clearly indicates, we are talking about clear aligners, which will give you the power of discretion while following the treatment. Everyone knows what traditional braces look like, and many aren’t ready to wear those. With Invisalign® there’s no need to feel self-conscious about wearing clear aligners, as they’re not easily noticeable.

Comfort

Besides being virtually invisible, they’re also comfortable thanks to their SmartTrack® material. They’re made of smooth plastic, which means no wires or sharp edges will bother or hurt you.

Removable

When it comes to oral hygiene, they are more convenient because you can remove them and brush your teeth as you would normally do. You may also clean your Invisalign® clear aligners thoroughly when you’re not wearing them. Dr. Maria Yazji recommends using a Steraligner® oral appliance cleaning solution to keep your Invisalign® aligners sanitized.

No Food Restrictions

If you can remove your Invisalign® aligners to clean them and brush your teeth, you can also remove them to eat anything you want, with no restrictions. Chewy or hard foods? No problem, remove your aligners, enjoy your food, brush your teeth, and put them back.

Low Maintenance

We will provide you with different sets of aligners so you can move on smoothly to the next one. No time for monthly orthodontic checkups? Don’t worry. You might not have to visit us very often. Keep reading to find out about our remote checkup appointments.

Invisalign® and Anywhere Smiles® by Dr. Yazji

If you’re ready to treat yourself this Valentine’s Day with Invisalign® treatment, you can book your first consultation, free of charge, at any of our three convenient locations in Weston, Brickell, and West Miami.

Even if you have a busy lifestyle, and don’t have time for monthly orthodontic checkups, you can still get a smile you’ll love with Contemporary Orthodontics. Dr. Maria Yazji offers Anywhere Smiles® via our Dental Monitoring app (DM).

Anywhere Smiles® gives you the possibility of fewer in-office visits. You’ll be able to be in touch with Dr. Yazji even if you’re sunbathing on the beach or studying at college. Dr. Yazji will send you instructions when it’s time for you to scan your smile with your phone.

My Amazing Smile Transformation with Invisalign® in Miami

My Amazing Smile Transformation with Invisalign® in Miami

When I moved to Miami to attend UM two years ago, I wasn’t sure of what I would be getting into.  I had predicted that my relocation from a small midwestern town to a vibrant and bustling city would take some getting used to.  What I hadn’t imagined was how quickly I would fall in love with Miami. The art, the music, the international flavors, the beaches, the fashion, the welcoming people, and of course the magical sunrises and sunsets. The vibe in Miami is like no place else on earth and I was all about it! Learn more about Invisalign in Miami.

Invisalign in Miami

I quickly settled into my new life as a university student (Go Canes!) and resident of Miami. Being able to study for exams in December from the comfort of a beach chair was nothing short of spectacular. Everything I needed in terms of shopping, restaurants, doctors, and other services was within close proximity to the off-campus apartment I was renting with two other UM students, Anna and Karen.

As I was nearing the end of my sophomore year, it was time to begin the search for internships and focus on my career path. I began fine-tuning my resume and preparing for job interviews. It was time to ditch my college sweatshirt and baseball cap and get my professional style together. My roommate, Anna, who is as stylish as they come, helped me select the basics I would need to look career-ready. We spent the day shopping (and eating!) on Brickell Avenue and had a wonderful time finding me a new wardrobe.

Invisalign® Transformation in Miami

When the day came for my first interview, I stood in front of the mirror admiring my new and sophisticated look. However, there was one thing that I was not feeling confident about – my smile.  My bottom teeth had always been crooked, although I had gotten proficient at hiding them when I smiled. What I couldn’t conceal was my overbite and the gap between my front teeth. When I was younger, I was told my gapped-tooth smile was “cute”.  But there I was, dressed to impress and looking ready to take on the business world, yet my teeth made me look and feel like a young schoolgirl. It was definitely not the look I was going for!

Invisalign Clear Braces

After sharing my concerns with my two roommates, both of them chimed in at the same time, “Dr. Maria Yazji!” they both shrieked. “Who?” Did I question? Well, it turned out that my roommates (and pseudo-style consultants) both had the kind of perfect smiles you see in fashion magazines, and both had been Invisalign patients of Dr. Maria Yazji. They told me that Dr. Yazji had offices in the Brickell Downtown area of Miami, West Miami, and Weston where Karen was originally from. Without hesitation, they pulled up Dr. Yazji’s website on my laptop. They insisted I call Dr. Yazji right away for what they referred to as a free “smile consultation”.  I told them I always knew I needed braces but the thought of all that metal in my mouth kept me from making an appointment. “What planet have you been living on?” quipped Anna. “Have you not heard about clear Invisalign aligners?” Karen added. “Do you think we were born with teeth like this? I was a full-out snaggletooth growing up – for real!!! Dr. Yazji fixed my smile with Invisalign! Back in high school, every kid in Weston went to her for braces.” she said. “She’s the best of the best!”.

Anna went on to tell me that Dr. Yazji was named an Invisalign Super Elite Premier Provider, placing her in the top 1% of Invisalign doctors in North America. As a Super Elite Preferred Provider, Dr. Yazji is a member of an exclusive group of Invisalign practitioners in the U.S. and Canada that have met the stringent Invisalign clinical education requirements and experience levels. My roommates assured me that I’d be in really good hands at Dr. Maria Yazji Orthodontics. They also informed me that as one of Dr. Yazji’s Invisalign patients, I would be given access to a phone app called Anywhere Orthodontics that would let me scan images of my smile from my phone and send them to Dr. Yazji for feedback if I had some kind of concern. These are called “remote appointments” and would mean fewer visits to the orthodontist’s office.

That was really important to me as a college student because I was taking a full load of classes and I was involved in several school clubs. My tight schedule left me very little free time for frequent appointments. I was lucky if I found time to sleep! When I did have to visit Dr. Yazji for my regular appointments, her office in Brickell was conveniently located just a few minutes from campus. My roommates told me that Dr. Yazji’s Miami offices are a college hotspot because so many students from FIU and UM go there for their Invisalign treatment. Anna likes to tell everyone how she met her boyfriend in the reception area while waiting for her appointment with Dr. Yazji. “Who needs Miami nightclubs to meet hot college guys when Dr. Yazji’s office is so close to campus!” She likes to say.

After hearing so many great things about Dr. Maria Yazji Orthodontics, my next step was to convince my parents of why Invisalign clear aligners from Dr. Yazji would be a good thing for me.  Here is my list of Invisalign treatment benefits that I sent to them:

  • According to the American Association of Orthodontists, straightening crooked teeth can improve overall dental health because it creates a better bite, making teeth fit better and decreasing the risk of future dental problems such as tooth decay, gum disease, and difficulty chewing.
  • Invisalign clear aligners have become the most popular removable dental brace.
  • A better smile will improve my confidence as I go on job interviews and prepare to enter the career world.
  • Maria Yazji Orthodontics has offices in Miami close to the university.
  • Yazji is an Invisalign Super Elite Premier Provider.
  • Because Invisalign aligners are removable, they won’t impede my daily brushing and flossing routine.
  • I will smile more when I Facetime you and Dad. : )
  • Yazji’s Invisalign patients get access to Anywhere Orthodontics for remote appointments – so I won’t miss any of my classes.
  • Invisalign is the most advanced technology that will give me an amazing smile.
  • Yazji treats tons of college kids from Miami and I might meet a really cute guy while I’m there, like Anna did. : )
  • I know, in your eyes I’m perfect in every way, but in reality, my smile is goofy and Dr. Yazji can make it look a whole lot better.
  • With Invisalign, I will be able to see my teeth gradually moving into their ideal position.
  • Invisalign treatment would make a very nice early graduation gift if you were wondering about that.
  • Having a beautiful Invisalign smile could translate to better job offers and better pay so I won’t need to move back home with you and dad after graduation.

Benefits of Invisalign Treatment

With so many convincing benefits of Invisalign treatment, my parents were on board with me getting my teeth straightened at Dr. Maria Yazji Orthodontics. I immediately made an appointment for my Smile Assessment and in no time had received my first set of clear aligners. My Invisalign aligners were custom fit using high-tech scanners at Dr. Yazji’s office. They fit great and were comfortable to wear. Because they were clear, I  hardly noticed that I was wearing them. I wore them all day and night except when I was eating or brushing. It was a relief knowing that I could still enjoy all the delicious food in Miami without having to worry about metal brackets and such. I just removed my Invisalign aligners whenever I ate. How great is that?

Now that I have graduated and landed my dream job in Miami, I can’t help but recognize how very grateful I am to the entire team at Dr. Maria Yazji Orthodontics and to my parents for giving me a smile that is better than I had ever imagined. Invisalign treatment was truly one of the best decisions I have ever made – next to agree to a date with Tyler, who I met in Dr. Yazji’s reception area.

5 Good Reasons to Tell Your Parents You Want Invisalign® Aligners

5 Good Reasons to Tell Your Parents You Want Invisalign® Aligners

Maybe your friends have them. Maybe you’ve seen commercials for them on TV or online. Maybe you’ve seen the stunning smiles they create. Whichever way you’ve figured it out, you know that Invisalign® Aligners can get you a smile you will really love.

Invisalign® Aligners

Now that you know it, you’ve got to get your parents on board, too. If you’re a teen in South Florida who wants to straighten your teeth with Invisalign®  clear aligners, there’s good news: Dr. Maria Yazji Orthodontics is here to help you – and your parents – throughout your orthodontic treatment.

At the South Florida offices of Dr. Maria Yazji Orthodontics, you can get a straight smile with Invisalign® treatment for teens. Here are 5 good reasons to talk to your parents about the benefits of these popular clear aligners:

  1. Invisalign® aligners work great – Whether you have gaps between your teeth that you want to close, crooked teeth you want to straighten, bite issues, or all of the above, Invisalign® aligners from the South Florida offices of Dr. Maria Yazji Orthodontics may be a good treatment option for you. These aligners are made to fit your teeth and bite and reposition them into their ideal placement in your mouth.
  1. These clear aligners look good – Katie wanted a straight smile but wasn’t crazy about wearing metal braces. That’s one of the reasons that she and her parents decided on clear Invisalign® Unlike silver braces, these clear aligners fit right over your teeth and are barely noticeable. With these clear plastic aligners, Katie could improve her smile without feeling self-conscious about the way she looked. If you don’t want to look like you’re wearing braces, Invisalign® aligners may be a good option for you too.
  1. Invisalign® aligners are convenient – Having braces used to mean you had to give up eating anything that was too crunchy, too sticky, or too chewy for a few years. Braces are used to make flossing your teeth a lot trickier. And thanks to metal braces, a lot of kids smiled with their mouths closed in their school pictures. But Invisalign® aligners have changed all that. These thin plastic aligners are removable – so you can take them out to eat, brush, and floss, and take them out briefly for special events, like taking school pictures. The convenience of Invisalign® treatment is something that our teen patients and their parents appreciate. 
  1. Anywhere Orthodontics makes them even more convenient – At the offices of Dr. Maria Yazji Orthodontics, Invisalign® patients can use Anywhere Orthodontics to make their orthodontic treatment even more hassle-free. Morgan is always busy with the drama club, soccer practice, and SAT prep. Her mom always has her hands full with work and four kids at home. That’s why they both love Anywhere Orthodontics. Whenever Morgan has a question about her treatment, or if a problem with one of her aligners comes up between her regular in-office visits, she can use her phone and a simple app to scan an image of her teeth and get helpful feedback from Dr. Maria Yazji, her Invisalign® Diamond orthodontist in Miami. Anywhere Orthodontics saves Morgan and her mom a lot of time, and it can make Invisalign® treatment easier for you and your parents as well. 
  1. Invisalign® is worth it because a straight smile is worth it. Not only do straight teeth improve how others perceive you, but straight teeth can also stay healthier throughout your lifetime. Getting a perfectly aligned smile can contribute to your future success and health – what every parent wants for their child.

Your smile matters to you, which is why it matters to us, too. At Dr. Maria Yazji Orthodontics, we can answer all the questions you and your parents may have about getting Invisalign® clear aligners. Set up an Anywhere Orthodontics appointment with Dr. Maria Yazji, or contact us for more information on Invisalign® treatment. Hablamos Español.

7 Tips to Get the Best Graduation Pics Ever

7 Tips to Get the Best Graduation Pics Ever

Dr. Maria Yazji Orthodontics

You’re graduating! Few words mean more to high school seniors, future college grads, and postgraduate students. After years of early morning classes and late-night study sessions, cramming for midterms and finals, juggling work and family with the demands of school, and the many significant moments of the past few years, graduation time is a time to celebrate. Whether your graduation ceremony is just around the corner or still a few years away, follow these tips, courtesy of Dr. Maria Yazji Orthodontics, to get the best graduation pics ever:

  1. Smile big. You’ve worked hard to get to this point. If you’re graduating high school, getting your college degree, or completing postgraduate study, you’ve got something to smile about. Sarah, 22, in Miami, wore her Invisalign® aligners to her graduation, since they’re clear and barely noticeable. Joel, 21, in Ft. Lauderdale chose to take out his clear aligners for his graduation ceremony. With or without your removable Invisalign® aligners, say ‘cheese’ with a bright and happy smile for your graduation pictures.
  1. Look your best. Your graduation day will be captured forever in photos. If you’ll be posting them online for family and friends to see or printing them out to frame, you’ll want to look great in your graduation pics. For Lisa, 23, in Miami, looking her best for graduation meant getting her hair done and having her sister do her makeup – and showing off her newly straight smile that she got with Invisalign® clear aligners.
  1. Don’t miss out on a moment of your graduation day. Getting ready at home, walking across the stage, finding your guests outside afterward, and maybe even having a graduation party that night, your big day will probably be jam-packed. It’s not the day you want any problems to come up. That’s why Rafael, 25, in Weston, was happy to be an Anywhere Orthodontics When a problem with one of his aligners came up the morning of his graduation, he could upload an image of his teeth using his phone and communicate with his experienced Invisalign® orthodontist without having to go into the office. The convenience of Anywhere Orthodontics by Dr. Maria Yazji meant he didn’t have to miss a moment of his graduation ceremony.
  1. Grab your friends for group photos. Sharing your big day with your friends and fellow grads can make it even more special. Study groups, group projects, clinical rotations – you’ve been there for each other. Take great photos with your friends that you can look back on together.
  1. Take a picture for mom and dad. It’ll probably be framed and displayed prominently in the house. They’ll want one for their desk at work. They’ll want one to show their friends. Your graduation day is a celebration of your achievement, but it’s a proud day for your parents and other family members too. Take a picture for them to show off your accomplishment. 
  1. Be in the moment. Your graduation day can seem busy, stressful, hectic – but it also may be one of the most memorable days of your life. It’s the end of one era and the start of a new one in your life. Take time to appreciate everything that makes the day special, including every picture you take.
  1. Take plenty of pics to make sure you get the perfect ones. Adrienne, 22, in Coral Gables, says she always has to take a few photos before choosing the best one to share with her friends on Instagram. She has to make sure the angles are right and the lighting is good. But ever since she completed her Invisalign® treatment in Miami, she knows that her smile will look perfect in every shot.

Why Smiling Can Improve Your Dating Life

Invisalign Treatment: They were on their first date in a Miami restaurant. Their friends had set them up, saying they’re a perfect match. But something wasn’t right. Throughout the night, he didn’t really smile. She thought it was strange, he didn’t seem to be having a good time. He actually was happy to be there, but he was insecure about his smile — he had never liked his crooked teeth. She thought he didn’t like her, though, and their first date fizzled out.

In the same restaurant, another couple was on their first date, too. They’d met online, both liking the other’s profile pic. They also both happened to have straight, bright smiles. She smiled widely, he exuded confidence. They found out that they had so much in common. They’d studied the same thing in school and were both up for big promotions. They definitely wanted to see each other again.

A great smile can do a lot for your dating life in South Florida. A Princeton study, noted on psychologicalscience.org, found that first impressions are formed in a tenth of a second. When you meet someone for the first time, it takes only this fraction of a second to form lasting opinions about them – and it’s the same for them when they meet you.

Of course, beauty is more than skin deep, but it’s known that people who have straight smiles are seen as being not only more attractive but more intelligent and successful as well. These split-second assumptions based on appearance can come into play when you’re on the dating scene. A better smile can improve your confidence, allowing you to be more open to meeting new people and trying new things. If you have a smile that you’re not happy with, fixing it with Invisalign® clear aligners can give your self-confidence – and your dating life – the boost you’re looking for.

Invisalign® clear aligners, available at the West Miami, Brickell, and Weston offices of Dr. Maria Yazji Orthodontics, are convenient and custom fit to your unique bite. These thin plastic aligners can be used to correct common orthodontic issues, including:

  • crowding

10 Benefits of Having a Great Smile

When it comes to making a good impression, the first thing that comes to mind is a great smile. It’s hard to feel cranky when you are with someone who is looking at you with a genuine and happy smile. Researchers have long known that smiling has quite a few benefits worth considering.  Here are 10 benefits of smiling that will make you rethink how often you smile each day:

  1. Improved Mood

Smiling has been scientifically proven to contribute to a release of mood-enhancing chemicals, such as endorphins, in your brain which can increase feelings of contentedness and happiness.

  1. Pain and Stress Relief

All those feel-good chemicals in your brain can help to relieve pain and stress. Similar to the level of pain relief that medications can give, smiling affects the dopamine, endorphins, and serotonin neurotransmitters which can lower your heart rate, blood pressure and lessen pain.

  1. Stronger Immune System

The chemical reactions that make you feel relaxed and happy will also contribute to a healthier and stronger immune system!

  1. Longer and Healthier Life

Those who smile more tend to live longer. In fact, one study found that, on average, people live seven years longer compared to those who don’t smile. This is most likely caused by the many other health benefits that smiling helps such as lowering blood pressure, heart rate, stress and anxiety. Smiling may even strengthen the immune system and overall health.

  1. Makes You More Attractive

People smile as an affable gesture. Most of us attribute smiling to other likable characteristics such as friendliness, happiness, and approachability.  No matter where you are in the world or what type of personality or physical attributes you are attracted to, smiling is almost always rated as more attractive than not smiling.

  1. Better First Impressions

When you realize that people are judging you more positively when you are smiling, it becomes obvious that people who smile tend to leave a better first impression when they meet others! Somebody’s first impression of you is what will stick in their mind long after that initial first meeting. It only makes sense that those who smile more will be projected that certain confidence and warmth that is a desirable attribute to have at work and at play.

  1. Stronger Relationships

People usually respond positively to genuine and friendly people. By leaving a positive first impression and being perceived as more attractive and friendly, you will continue to attract people who want to be around you and your infectious smile.

  1. Get Paid More

Smiling can make you more productive and get you recognized, especially at work. It’s no surprise that employees that smile more frequently tend to get more promotions, raises, and better tips!

  1. Boost Your Self-Confidence

Smiling makes you feel good and makes others want to be around you. The way you view yourself and your smile will surely enhance your confidence!

  1. Smiling is Contagious

No matter what your primary language maybe, a nice smile is the universal language anyone can translate. Smiling creates a simple way to connect with others regardless of age, gender, race/ethnicity, or primary language!
