Crooked teeth – while some flaws are endearing, most people will not be happy with their smiles if they are flawed. Not only can it affect their overall demeanor but can cause other dental issues. If you have a crooked grin and are considering braces, you may be apprehensive about getting big metal braces that are not aesthetically pleasing to the eye, especially as an adult. Straightening your teeth takes time, and you want to feel confident about your smile not only after your braces come off, but during. Traditional braces are obviously noticeable – but there is also a more discreet option. Invisalign invisible braces provide straightening treatment while looking your best.
So, how does it work?
Invisalign works by using a series of custom-made, nearly undetectable aligners. Whether your teeth are crowded, too far apart or have shifted, Invisalign may be right for you. Unfortunately, you may not have a choice as it depends on your situation. Upon an initial examination, your dental professional will write a treatment plan and take an impression of your teeth. Thanks to the latest advances in 3-D computer technology, Invisalign then creates a series of precisely customized aligners. The aligners will move your teeth gradually week by week until you achieve the smile you have always desired.
Also, it’s important to remember that even though you may want to straighten your teeth for cosmetic dentistry reasons, straighter teeth and a proper bite are beneficial to periodontal health. So, if you feel you’re ready to take the next step to a straighter smile, make an appointment with your dental professional today.
