In addition to being unpleasant to look at, crooked and improperly aligned teeth can make it difficult to clean the teeth leading to plaque buildup, tooth decay, and gum problems. Wearing metal braces is a traditional way to fix the alignment of the teeth; however, they take away from the appearance of your smile during treatment and can be painful to wear. The office of Smile Matters Inc. brings Invisalign clear aligners to you as a great alternative to metal braces.
Invisalign aligners are manufactured using clear, smooth, comfortable plastic that is virtually invisible. They gradually move your teeth into their correct position with no wires or brackets. You will need to wear a new set of aligners from the series every two weeks until the treatment is complete. Before starting the treatment, we will take several computerized impressions of your teeth and will be able to show you a 3D plan that indicates how your teeth will look after the treatment is over. This can help you visualize your future smile in advance.
