In the past, having your teeth straightened didn’t really involve any type of choice on the part of the patient. Metal braces were all that existed. Over the last couple of decades, clear braces have become available for those looking for a less obtrusive treatment option. The most popular of these, Invisalign, provides a way of straightening your teeth without detracting from the appearance of your teeth and smile.

The Invisalign System

What makes Invisalign different is that no metal wires or brackets are involved. Instead, you will be wearing a set of clear plastic aligners to gradually shift your teeth into their correct positions, based upon your individual treatment plan.

From time to time, normally about every two weeks, you will swap out your current set of aligners for a new set so that you keep up with your treatment plan.

The Benefits of Invisalign

The numerous benefits of Invisalign have made it the most popular system using clear braces to straighten teeth. Some of these benefits include:

  • Virtually undetectable system
  • Conveniently removable at any time
  • Does not require any type of food restrictions

Benefits of Dental Bonding

  • Fast and easy: Bonding is a quick procedure that can be completed in only one dental appointment.
  • Natural appearance: Dental bonding provides an extremely natural appearance. It is unlikely that anyone will be able to tell that any work was done on your teeth.
  • Noninvasive and safe: The bonding material and composite resin are completely safe. The procedure is noninvasive; so no pain or shots are involved.
  • Easy to care for: No special treatments are required for dental bonding besides normal brushing and flossing.

Virtually Undetectable

Invisalign is manufactured using a strong type of clear plastic that fits over your teeth, making the system almost invisible to others. In fact, someone would have to get very close to you to notice, and such a person is probably someone who are already knows you are wearing Invisalign.

If you need to take photos or selfies, Invisalign will not give away the fact that you are having your teeth straightened. You can simply take your picture and remove your clear aligners if you like.

No Food Restrictions

Any time you like, you can remove your clear aligners to clean your teeth or to eat. This makes the system incredibly convenient. And no food restrictions are required, as with braces that can become damaged by eating hard or crunchy foods. Just remember to replace your aligners when you’re done eating or cleaning your teeth.

Invisalign Comfort

Another advantage to wearing Invisalign is that the system is much more comfortable than traditional metal braces that can poke your gums and inner cheeks. The plastic that the aligners are made of is smooth and uniquely contoured to fit the space in your mouth and around your teeth.
