Spring officially arrived this week, and if you are feeling that itch brighten things up and make some changes, you aren’t alone. If you are feeling ho-hum about your smile, it may be time to discuss the cosmetic dental services in Cleveland, TX. Whether you choose to have a single service, such as teeth whitening, or a more dramatic change, such as straightening teeth with Invisalign clear aligners our goal is the same as your goal: helping you enjoy your best smile.
Am I Too Old to Consider Changing My Smile?
Misaligned teeth can occur at any age, and can be corrected in a number of ways. Some patients are helped by traditional brackets and wires in their teen years, while other patients can benefit from the discreet help of clear aligners, which move teeth gently into corrected positions, without having to attach anything to individual teeth. Invisalign is often the choice for aligners for young adult and adult patients, who may need less dramatic tooth movement, and who have the maturity to maintain the wearing schedule.
What Can I Expect From Invisalign?
We will begin with a consultation appointment, where we can assess the overall health of your teeth, and take care of any restorative work that needs to be done. Using our in-office technology, we can look beneath the soft oral structures, and map the plan to gently rotate a turned tooth, close gaps and otherwise move teeth gently into proper alignment. You will receive a set of trays and a schedule to wear them, changing to new trays as your teeth gradually shift into more ideal positions.
How Long Does Invisalign Take?
Most patients have their new smile in 12-18 months, and we can give you a closer estimate when we meet with you to plan your treatment. You will be wearing the aligner throughout the day and night, and removing them when you eat and brush your teeth. Good daily oral care is important to maintain the health of your teeth and gums and being able to remove the trays makes brushing and flossing easier.
