Getting braces can be a difficult decision to make. Your teeth may be in need of braces, but the social aspects of braces can present a major obstacle to making the decision; Invisible Braces eliminate that obstacle! Invisible braces are a clear and simple alternative to ordinary metal braces. With invisible braces there are no wires or brackets, just a series of clear, custom, removable aligners that gradually straighten your teeth as you wear them, each aligner moving your teeth a little bit at a time.
Is invisalign® Right for Me?
Whether or not your teeth can benefit from invisible braces is determined between you and your dentist. At Whispering Pines Dental, we will evaluate your teeth, discuss with you any potential problems you might run into, and what the end goal is for the treatment. If invisalign® is the right choice, we’ll then take impressions, photographs, and x-rays of your teeth. All of that information is then sent to the manufacturer so that they can customize a set of clear teeth aligners to fit you perfectly.
Is invisalign® Really So Clear They Aren’t Noticed?
Yes! These aren’t anything like ordinary athletic mouth guards, other aligners, or any other plastic or silicone oral appliance. Invisible braces are computer crafted to fit your teeth precisely and are made from a material that is completely clear and nearly imperceptible.
How does invisalign® work?
Invisalign® takes a modern approach to straightening teeth, using a custom-made series of aligners created for you and only you. These aligner trays are made of smooth, comfortable and virtually invisible plastic that you wear over your teeth. Wearing the aligners will gradually and gently shift your teeth into place, based on the exact movements your dentist or orthodontist plans out for you. There are no metal brackets to attach and no wires to tighten. You just pop in a new set of aligners approximately every two weeks, until your treatment is complete. You’ll achieve a great smile with little interference in your daily life. The best part about the whole process is that most people won’t even know you’re straightening your teeth.
You don’t have to hide your teeth anymore! The team at Whispering Pines Dental is ready to help you show off that smile with invisalign®.
