Having a more beautiful smile can be easier than you think with Invisalign.

Invisalign is a clear braces system for your teeth that can help to straighten and realign crooked teeth. Whether you’re a teen or adult, going with clear braces can be a great way to improve the look of your smile without the worry of traditional metal braces that may be uncomfortable or even unsightly. Knowing how these clear braces work and what they can do for you may help you to make the decision on whether or not they’re right for you.

Before anything else, you’ll need to visit a local cosmetic dentist who will be able to tell you whether or not clear braces are right for you. The cosmetic dentist may take x-rays of your teeth to also create a treatment plan that is right for you.

Certain people may need other orthodontic work done before they can be fitted for Invisalign, so be sure to ask your dentist about these things if they are concerning to you. Once this has been done, the dentist will take impressions of your teeth so that the invisible braces can be made specifically to fit your own mouth.

You will need to visit your dentist regularly to have routine impressions done to create brand new invisible braces as your teeth begin to shift into a more aligned state. Your dentist will also be able to inform you on things you can and cannot eat while you have these braces on your teeth. The wonderful thing about invisible braces when compared to others is that you can take them out at certain times, like when you’re brushing your teeth or eating. This is different from traditional metal braces that are pretty much there to stay until the dentist removes them professionally.

If you feel that invisible braces are right for you, it is a good idea to contact our local Monroe NC cosmetic dental office to set up an appointment for a consultation.

During the consultation, our dentist will discuss what invisible braces are, what the treatment plan is like and how much the procedure is going to cost, both with and without insurance and any potential financial options. This is a wonderful way for you to get the straight smile that you’ve always wanted without having to go through the annoyance of traditional metal braces that may make you feel a bit self-conscious.
