Straight teeth are not only attractive, they can improve the overall health of your smile. Orthodontic treatment can shift teeth into the desired position and improve your bite for a straight, healthy smile. Metal braces are not the only option to obtain a straighter smile – you can straighten your teeth with Invisalign clear aligners, available at Peninsula Cosmetic & Family Dentistry in Charleston, SC.
Invisalign uses clear, plastic aligners that are designed to fit over your teeth to shift and adjust your bite and smile. Our dental team uses advanced imaging to create a digital 3-D mold of your teeth and a treatment plan. We can create clear Invisalign aligners that patients wear over their teeth to gently shift crooked, gapped or misaligned teeth into the correct position. Every few weeks patients receive a new set of aligners that bring them closer to their desired smile. In most cases, Invisalign treatment lasts 9-12 months, but it can vary from patient to patient.
Straighten Your Teeth with Invisalign
Compared to metal braces, Invisalign aligners offer many benefits. The most obvious is the appearance – Invisalign aligners are clear and almost invisible, a more discreet way to straighten your teeth. In addition, there are no wires or brackets like braces which can cause discomfort during treatment. Invisalign patients can eat the foods they love – there are many food restrictions needed with braces to protect the hardware. Simply remove the aligners before eating, brush after your meals, and put your aligners back on when you are done.
Invisalign aligners are a wonderful tool to create a straighter, beautiful smile without metal braces.
