Straighten your smile discreetly with Invisalign orthodontics
- Posted on: Sep 15 2020
Many adult patients with misaligned smiles avoid talking to their dentist about straightening the teeth. Why? Because they’re afraid they will be told that traditional metal bracket and wire braces are the only option available to them. The idea of covering the smile for months, sometimes years, with metal to reposition the smile keeps them from moving forward in obtaining their dream smile. Luckily, the team at Boutique Smiles of Manhattan in New York, NY has an alternative solution for patients to consider: Invisalign.
What is Invisalign?
The dental team at Boutique Smiles of Manhattan describe Invisalign as an “invisible” teeth-straightening solution. Instead of utilizing metal brackets connected by wire and adjusted regularly, Invisalign works using plastic trays. These trays are customized by creating digital impressions of the patient’s current smile and designing their future smile using today’s advanced technology and software. Once the new smile is designed, the Invisalign laboratories creates a series of clear plastic trays. Each tray is worn day and night for two weeks before the next tray in the series is started. By the end of the series, patients will have a smile they’re confident to show off with others—all while undergoing invisible treatment in the meantime!
Why choose Invisalign?
The primary reason why patients choose Invisalign is because it is a more discreet option available to them when compared to noticeable and unsightly metal alternatives. However, Invisalign is also:
- Easy to use
- Simple to comply with
- Easy to care for
- Comparable in cost to traditional braces
- Better for oral health
- Removable for easy cleaning
When patients speak to their dentist about Invisalign treatment, they will learn more about how the trays are used to gradually reposition teeth and improve the smile’s overall alignment and appearance.
