Patients in the Denver, NC area who are seeking solutions to crooked teeth might fear bringing up their concerns to their dentist because they might think traditional metal bracket and wire braces are the only way to achieve the smile of their dreams. Fortunately, there have been so many advances in the area of orthodontics that this isn’t the only way for a patient to straighten their smile. With Invisalign teeth straightening using clear aligners, patients in the area can enjoy the smile they’ve always wanted. Our team is pleased to provide Invisalign orthodontics for just this purpose!
What is Invisalign?
Drs. Nathen Ellis and Gary Hubbard of Denver Dental Arts describe Invisalign as a specialized method of straightening crooked teeth. Without using metal brackets and wires, Invisalign can move teeth into better positioning with the use of clear aligners. These plastic trays are worn over the natural smile for 22 hours a day, gently repositioning the teeth in a discreet and attractive manner. Many patients who comply appropriately with their treatment will often find that they can obtain their dream smile in approximately one year or less, depending on the severity of their misalignment. Invisalign can address:
- Crooked teeth
- Spaced/gapped teeth
- Turned teeth
How does Invisalign work?
Patients have a series of digital impressions taken by our dental team, which are then sent electronically to the Invisalign laboratories. They create a series of trays that are made to take patients from their current smile to their dream smile. Patients obtain the trays and wear them for 22 hours a day, two weeks at a time, as they progress through their treatment. By the last trays, patients will have a beautiful smile they are confident in sharing with others!
