Are you ready to put your crooked teeth in the past? If so, Invisalign can help you do just that! In today’s blog, your Cleveland, TX, dentist talks about straightening teeth with clear retainers and how you can achieve a healthier smile!
Health Benefits with Straighter Teeth
Straighter teeth are much easier to keep clean and healthy. Gum disease often lurks in crowded spaces where plaque can hide and eventually turn into tartar. Bacteria thrive in these hard-to-reach spaces and can even create cavities. Misaligned teeth can also cause jaw issues since the teeth aren’t in a naturally harmonious position that supports the jaw joint. This can lead one to grind or clench the teeth which leads to all sorts of damage to dental structures.
How Does Invisalign Work?
The first step is digital impressions which will create exact models of your teeth. They are then sent to Invisalign to create your specialized case and determine how many clear plastic aligners you will need. Each aligner is worn for one to two weeks for at least 22 hours a day. They can be removed when eating and drinking anything other than water. It’s an excellent option for achieving that gorgeous straight smile without metal brackets.
Other Cosmetic Options
Once your smile has been straightened with Invisalign we can go another step further to create your ideal smile. If you have teeth that appear too small or are a color that you dislike, we have restorative options for complete smile makeovers. We provide composite resin fillings that offer tooth-colored restorations, and we have porcelain veneers. Veneers are the most ideal for creating a long-lasting and natural-looking smile. They are durable, life-like, and can be customized to your specifications. At your cosmetic consultation, we will review all options and create the most ideal treatment plan based on your priorities.
