There are many adults out there who would love to straighten their crooked, crowded, or gapped teeth, but there is just one problem—they don’t want to spend years wearing noticeable metal braces. This is completely understandable in today’s image-conscious world, which is why the team at The Dental Center of Westport is happy to offer a more aesthetically-friendly option: Invisalign. With it, patients can finally get the beautifully straight smiles they’ve always wanted without sacrificing their daily appearance in the process.
Instead of metal brackets and wires, Invisalign uses a series of custom-made clear plastic aligner trays to gently shift the teeth into their proper positions. A patient simply has to wear each set of aligners for about 20-22 hours a day for two weeks, and they will be specially shaped to gradually bring a patient closer to their ideal smile. After a patient has gone through the entire series, that’s it, and they should see a perfectly aligned set of teeth in the mirror!
More and more patients are choosing Invisalign to straighten their smiles because it offers a number of one-of-a-kind benefits:
We primarily recommend Invisalign for adults and image-conscious teens who will be able to keep up with wearing their trays. Younger patients whose teeth are still developing would benefit more from traditional braces, and certain complex orthodontic issues can only be corrected with braces as well.
If you’re interested in getting Invisalign, then we invite you to schedule a consultation here at The Dental Center of Westport. During this appointment, our team will discuss your smile goals, examine your teeth, and let you know whether or not Invisalign would be a good fit for you. If it is, then we can get to work designing your aligners right away. Before you know it, you’ll have the gorgeously straight smile you’ve always wanted!
