As an adult, it can be a difficult thing to commit to wearing traditional braces. The metal brackets and wires aren’t comfortable, and they hardly look professional. However, crooked teeth aren’t professional-looking either.

Luckily, there’s a more discreet teeth-straightening method than traditional braces – Invisalign®.

Why to consider it

Invisalign is a revolutionary procedure developed to give people – especially adults – a beautiful straight smile without the need for traditional metal wires and brackets that come with braces.

Instead, clear plastic retainers are created to match the shape of your mouth. No one can tell you’re wearing these retainers, and you can go about your day smiling confidently.

How does it work?

Your dentist will take a mold of your mouth, and then create a series of clear plastic retainers. You’ll wear each pair for two weeks, then swap it out for the next one. These will slowly move your teeth into place over time, albeit at a faster rate than traditional braces. You have to wear your retainers all day, except when eating or brushing.

At the end of the day, using Invisalign to fix your smile as an adult is one of the best options if you want your straightening process to be as discreet as possible. If you think you’re a candidate for Invisalign, call us today at 941-549-8930 to schedule an appointment.
