When you look at yourself in the mirror or in pictures, are you distracted by the large spaces between your teeth? Maybe these gaps even cause you to hide your smile. More importantly, keeping these areas clean and free from food debris and plaque can be more challenging, leading to tooth decay or gum disease. The good news is that we can help! Cosmetic & Family Dentistry offers Invisalign in Weatherford to correct this common problem without having to use metal brackets and wires. With this simple treatment, you can have a smile you’re proud of.
While some people struggle with overcrowded or rotated teeth, you have gaps in your smile. This can be the result of any of the following:
Unlike metal braces that slowly pull teeth into the desired position, Invisalign clear aligners apply gentle pressure to progressively move teeth. We start by getting a digital impression of your teeth to create a treatment plan or a personalized series of aligners. For at least 20 hours every day, you’ll wear the aligners, taking them out only for eating and oral care, and then transition to the next set after a week or two according to our instructions. Invisalign treatment typically lasts about 12 to 18 months.
Aside from the aesthetic advantages, Invisalign offers many benefits that traditional braces simply can’t. These benefits include the following:
Not everyone’s smile is right for Invisalign treatment. For example, if the spaces between your teeth are small, porcelain veneers or direct bonding may be a better solution. During a consultation, one of our dentists should be able to evaluate your smile and determine whether you qualify for orthodontic treatment with Invisalign aligners. You may also be a good fit for Invisalign if you are committed to following treatment instructions, are diligent in your oral care, and want to achieve results through less noticeable means.
