Metal braces have long been the standard to straighter teeth, even amid the advances in modern orthodontics. Yet the two most frequent complaints from patients remain the same: metal braces interfere with life (they are painful and discomforting), and they are aesthetically inelegant, to say the least. Fortunately, there is a metal-free solution: invisible braces.
There are many benefits to Invisalign:
- Clear plastic aligners perfect your teeth inconspicuously, unobtrusively and tastefully.
- You don’t have to hide your smile or change your diet as you straighten your teeth.
- The plastic trays are removable, so that you may easily maintain your oral health and hygiene.
Your dentist will first begin by developing a series of clear custom aligner trays by taking impressions of your teeth. The trays will be used successively to gradually straighten your teeth. Invisible braces are preferred by patients because they are simply more comfortable and complimentary. You and your Hillcrest dentist can diagnose what treatment is best for your smile.
