No teenager likes to hear their dentist tell them that their teeth need alignment. Back in the day, metal braces were among the only ways to straighten teeth.
While traditional braces are still an efficient straightening method, patients have another option to consider—aligners. Aligner technology is now at a point where teens do not feel insecure about having dental fixtures in their mouths.
Similarly, many adults are self-conscious about their teeth and believe they are powerless to change the situation. Fortunately, Smiles Orthodontics offers a solution that can boost your confidence in your smile. Adults can benefit from clear aligners and comprehensive orthodontic treatments that will have you smiling in photos and showing off your pearly whites.
Many people are hesitant to try aligners, as they feel insecure about how they impact their looks. However, that is the principal benefit of our clear aligners—they’re so clear that nobody will notice you have them on your teeth!
We ensure that your aligners are unnoticeable, using advanced 3D dental technology to blend the color of your aligners with your existing permanent teeth. It amazes our patients how much straighter teeth can improve their looks.
Smiles Orthodontics uses a couple of aligner options on our patients.
Adults and teens both benefit from Invisalign treatments, and there are several reasons why patients may want to seek orthodontic treatment.
For starters, having straight teeth can boost your self-esteem. We emphasize the importance of proper dental hygiene. Without it, we cannot move forward with our orthodontic treatments.
Furthermore, patients with crooked teeth are more likely to develop gingivitis and other dental health problems. Our patients can use our Invisalign aligners to straighten their teeth without having to wear a bulky mouthpiece for months on end.
3M Clarity is a brand of clear aligners that are nearly invisible when worn. We create our straighteners with a patented material that is strong and durable yet flexible and comfortable. 3M Clarity aligners are an excellent choice for people who want to improve their smile without drawing attention to their teeth.
Another amazing benefit of 3M Clarity aligners is that you can pop them out before eating. Therefore, no dietary restrictions come with wearing your aligners.
Unfortunately, traditional metal aligners don’t allow people to floss adequately, so their oral hygiene suffers. Our 3M Clarity patients have no restrictions regarding brushing and flossing.
Our experienced orthodontist will explain our aligner treatments in detail during your initial consultation and devise a strategy to achieve your desired results. We will then create aligners with your goals in mind. Clear aligners for teens and adults are an excellent alternative to traditional braces for getting straighter teeth.
We will scan your teeth with the latest digital technology and obtain 3D images of your mouth to create the aligners. Our orthodontist will design clear aligners customized to your specific smile. Therefore, your aligners will fit perfectly as we capture all the details that make your smile unique.
