When you're looking for orthodontics because you want straight teeth but don’t want the brackets and wires that go along with traditional metal braces, Invisalign braces align your smile in the most discreet way possible.
At our Dentistry for Life office in Philadelphia Invisalign is offered to patients who qualify for this type of orthodontic treatment. As certified and experienced Philadelphia Invisalign providers, we create beautiful smiles for our patients using invisible aligners.
Invisalign is one of the world’s most popular clear aligner brands. A tray of clear, medical-grade plastic is fitted snugly over your teeth. The aligner gradually shifts your teeth into the correct position in a gentle and safe manner over time. While there are many clear aligners on the market, Invisalign has earned top marks for comfort, efficacy, and near invisibility. By wearing your Invisalign as directed, you can have the straight teeth you desire in just about a year.
While metal braces are a tried-and-true way to straighten teeth, they leave something to be desired for those who don’t want to see shiny, highly visible metal braces when they look in the mirror. Invisalign is completely clear, so it is virtually indistinguishable from your own teeth. Invisalign is so discreet, no one will know you are wearing it unless they look closely.
Invisalign braces can correct nearly every problem traditional metal braces fix, and do so quickly and inconspicuously. This customized alignment method moves crooked, crowded, and gapped teeth into their proper positions in an average of 12 months.
Besides being nearly invisible, Invisalign differs from metal braces in methodology. Unlike metal braces that move tooth crowns and then tooth roots, Invisalign moves crown and root simultaneously, allowing for faster treatment time.
One of the hallmarks of Invisalign is to consistently and gentle move only a few teeth at a time until your entire mouth is in alignment. As for your part in this endeavor, following the rules of Invisalign is critical to the success of your treatment:
Before any orthodontics treatment can begin, patients need to qualify as an Invisalign candidate and that begins with a thorough exam at sour office. During this examination we take 3D images of your mouth and examine your teeth and bite. If it is clear that you will benefit from Invisalign treatment, we will develop a complete, customized Invisalign treatment plan.
Invisalign works, and it works fast. If you follow the rules of Invisalign, and if your teeth respond properly and willingly shift into their aligned spots, you will have a new smile in just about a year. But that’s not the only benefit:
When you come to see the experienced Philadelphia Invisalign dentists at Dentistry for Life, we are there for you from the start to the end of your Invisalign journey. We make getting started easy.
Any braces-wearer must wear retainers after orthodontics are complete. Teeth are newly moved into their proper positions and, after all that work, you want them to stay there. Retainers make this possible. There are many types of retainers available, but most Invisalign patients use Vivera retainers to keep their teeth from moving back towards where they started before the Invisalign treatment began.
Talk to us if you are hoping for a permanent retainer or are curious about other options for keeping your teeth in place. Many patients also opt for a round of professional teeth whitening after Invisalign is complete. The only thing better than straight teeth is white, straight teeth. Your smile will be blindingly beautiful and flawless with this pair of dental treatments, both of which are offered at our Philadelphia cosmetic dentistry office.
If you have been living with crooked or crowded teeth, it’s time to finally get a straight smile. Invisalign will get your teeth into alignment. With a beautiful smile, you’ll be proud to smile, and knowing you look good will be a boost to your confidence that makes you look happier, healthier, and even younger.
