Do you have teeth that are crooked or crowded? Do you wish you could straighten your smile without metal braces? With clear braces, you can! Our dentists are pleased to offer Invisalign, which is a clear aligner system, as a discreet, comfortable way to achieve a straighter, healthier, more beautiful smile. We invite you to contact our team at Smiles Dental to learn more about the advantages of Invisalign and to set up your personalized consultation.
Clear braces are a great choice for our patients who are searching for a more discreet orthodontic treatment option. Rather than using metal brackets and wires like traditional braces, the Invisalign system uses a series of custom-made, computer-generated plastic aligners to straighten your smile. Each set of aligners is designed to make small changes to the alignment of the teeth. As you switch sets of aligners about every two weeks, your teeth will be gradually, gently guided to their proper positions. You will also visit our office on a regular basis during treatment to make certain that your smile is progressing as planned.
In general, clear braces can be used to treat the same orthodontic issues that are normally treated with braces. Our dentist may recommend clear braces to correct:
- Crowded teeth
- Crooked teeth
- Gapped and spaced teeth
- Certain problems with the bite, such as an overbite, open bite, underbite, or crossbite
During your initial visit, we will determine whether you are a good candidate for clear braces. This treatment is often a good choice for adult patients and others who are interested in a virtually invisible orthodontic treatment. In addition to being discreet, clear aligners are also very comfortable because they are custom made from smooth, thin plastic. The aligners are removable as well, which allows you to easily remove them as needed in order to eat, brush, and floss. We welcome you to call or visit us today to learn more about Clear Braces.
