Whether you are a teenager, young adult, or middle-aged, this product can give you that movie star smile you’ve always wanted. Our Birmingham, MI dentist offers Invisalign short-term orthodontic products.
Straight Teeth Without Discomfort or Embarrassment
Many adults who never got braces when they were young think that it is now too late to straighten their teeth because they are afraid that braces would make them look strange, immature, or unprofessional. However, Invisalign is a teeth straightening solution that will save you from any shame or embarrassment.
Invisalign uses clear plastic aligners that will slowly move your teeth into their correct position. The aligners themselves are transparent and practically invisible. This means that you’ll be able to wear them without anyone noticing and straighten your teeth while maintaining the utmost privacy.
Sometimes we have patients that come to us and say, “You know, there’s just this one crooked tooth,” or “There’s just these two teeth that overlap,” or “All my lower front teeth are crowding and I notice they’re getting more and more crowding the older I get. I’d like to do something about it.”
We have Invisalign for that. Most people have heard of it. They’re clear plastic trays that over a short period of time can move your teeth. Now they used to be limited in what they could do, but Invisalign in the last two to three years has become a lot more advanced and they can do many, many things to move your teeth into position, to correct bite issues as well.
We do that here at this office. They’re Invisalign trays. They’re clear plastic trays, and most people, if you walked around with them all day, they wouldn’t notice you had them in. You wear them most of the day. You take them out when you eat, and that’s about it. They’re clear braces.
Another fantastic advantage of Invisalign is that the clear aligners are removable. As long as you wear them for at least 22 hours a day, you can take them out to eat, brush, and floss. This means you can enjoy the foods you want – without spending hours cleaning the food from metal braces. This also helps reduce the risk of cavities from food debris building up.
How the Process Works
Our Birmingham, MI dentist begins the process by taking digital X-rays and pictures of your teeth. Using the Invisalign Outcome Simulator, we will be able to show you exactly how your teeth will look when the treatment is done. This helps you visualize your perfect new smile and helps you make informed decisions before the treatment begins.
Afterward, we will take impressions of your teeth. These impressions will be used to create multiple sets of aligners that will slowly move your teeth into place. Every few weeks, you will have to come to our office to receive a new set and for us to check on your progress. Depending on your teeth, the process could take a few months or up to a year, but before you know it, you will have a beautiful new smile.
