Orthodontics is the branch of dentistry that corrects teeth that are crowded, protruding, or too far apart. Until recently, orthodontic treatment was focused mainly on kids or teenagers, and the preferred method was metal band-and-bracket braces. At Brighter Smile, we know that about 20% of orthodontic patients today are between 20 and 60 years of age – and love the discretion of Invisalign treatment.
Invisalign is the invisible way to straighten teeth using a series of custom-made, nearly undetectable aligners. The only clear aligners made from SmartTrack material, Invisalign is easier to put on and take off than other options. They straighten your teeth predictably, conveniently, and more comfortably than traditional braces.
Here’s how it works.
During your consultation, we decide if Invisalign is right for you. Our skilled team will create a treatment plan, take an impression of your teeth, and submit it to Invisalign who translates our instructions into a series of medical-grade plastic aligners. Each one of your comfortable aligners is precisely calibrated and manufactured to fit snugly over your teeth and gently move them through every stage of your treatment plan.
No more metal mouth means you’ll smile more during treatment and you’ll spend less time in our office having adjustments! Because Invisalign aligners are removable, you can still enjoy your favorite foods and smile without holding back. You can take them out to play a wind instrument or to wear a mouthguard when you play your favorite sports. With Invisalign, there’s nothing to avoid and nothing to hide! Just make sure that you wear them for the recommended 20 to 22 hours per day for the best results.
