Your Plano, TX Cosmetic Dentist Can Straighten Your Teeth Fast with InvisalignDr. Barfield on Invisalign at 1st in Smiles in Plano, TX Read Transcript
Invisalign is an orthodontic procedure where we make study models of somebody’s teeth and from those models we make these clear trays to fit over somebody’s teeth and every three weeks they come in and get a new set of trays and we slowly move their teeth over a period of time until we get the desired result that we are looking for. And we can straighten teeth without the banded brackets and the metal wires.
Do you wish your teeth were straight but don’t want to endure years of wearing unsightly and uncomfortable metal braces? Our Plano, TX dentist has a painless, invisible alternative to braces for straightening your teeth – no metal mouth or orthodontist required!
Clear, Invisible Braces
Invisalign uses a series of clear, nearly invisible aligners to straighten your teeth so that people don’t have to notice you’re straightening your teeth. Adults especially love that they’re invisible; who wants to wear wire braces at work or in public, where people may judge you or consider you less professional or mature?
When you come to 1st In Smiles to start your Invisalign treatment, we will fit you for your custom aligners. We’ll create a 3D model to use in creating your aligners, give you a sneak peek at what your teeth will look after the procedure and approximately how long your treatment will take.
Its unique, custom-made aligners move your teeth in a series of very precise increments, so to give you the best results, we’ll change your aligners every few weeks. The entire treatment is usually just 12 months long – at least half the time of traditional wire braces! Your visits for adjustments are also less frequent than those required for wearing braces, making Invisalign a convenient option if you’re a busy person.
One of the things our patients like most about Invisalign is that, unlike braces, these clear aligners can be removed while you eat and brush your teeth. You can potentially save hours a week brushing your teeth, and you can eat whatever you want, wherever you want; you won’t have to worry about getting embarrassed when you dine out because of food that inevitably gets stuck in braces. And you also won’t have to bother with those pesky, time-consuming cleaning appliances or wires.
Invisalign’s smooth plastic aligners are also comfortable; there’s no reason to be in pain from metal wires scratching the inside of your mouth and your cheeks.
You’ll also be pleased that when your treatment is complete, you’ll have no ugly stains or discoloration on your teeth, a common problem when wire braces are removed.
