Cosmetic dentistry is one of the most popular forms of dentistry due to the multitude of treatments available that can completely enhance a patient’s smile. For our patients at Caring Modern Dentistry here in Reidsville, North Carolina, we only offer the best cosmetic treatments that won’t only give you quick results, but also beautiful results. We get patients in our office every day looking for ways that they can enhance or improve the appearance of their smile. One of our most suggested and recommended treatments is Invisalign.
Invisalign is an orthodontic treatment that gives similar results to traditional braces but in a more modern and appealing way.
When a patient comes to us with serious malalignment and malocclusion or just wants to straighten their smile, we suggest Invisalign. Orthodontics is the diagnosis and treatment of things such as crooked teeth, overbites, underbites, crossbites, and misaligned teeth. Traditional or metal braces are the most common form of orthodontic treatment but many prefer the benefits of Invisalign.
Instead of using metal brackets and wires, Invisalign consists of a series of clear, plastic aligner sets that slowly over time push or pull your teeth into their straightened form.
To start your Invisalign treatment, we work closely with each patient taking photos, x-rays, and impressions of your teeth to create your custom-made sets of aligners. At the beginning of your treatment, you will be given the first set of aligners to wear for around 2 weeks, then a new set will be given to you. Each set of aligners is made to push or pull your teeth further into place.
Depending on your specific smile and the changes that you are wanting to make will determine the total length of time you will need to wear the aligners.
Benefits of Invisalign
- Metal braces aren’t very discrete and draw a lot of unwanted attention to the patient’s smile, Invisalign is made with clear plastic, therefore, being nearly invisible.
- The Invisalign treatment can last anywhere from 12-14 months which is generally a shorter time frame than most traditional braces.
- For adults who are wanting a straighter smile, the thought of having metal braces is discouraging, Invisalign allows all to maintain a more professional appearance.
- Invisalign aligners can be removed while eating and brushing teeth. No food is off-limits and teeth can stay clean.
