Want a Straighter Smile? Consider Cosmetic Braces! Part Two

Still wondering what can be done about your misaligned smile? Even relatively minor alignment issues can cause cosmetic embarrassment and even discomfort along the jawline. Thankfully traditional braces, which could be uncomfortable and awkward, are no longer the only way to address alignment issues. Cosmetic braces like clear aligner trays provide a new, more discreet way to deal with alignment issues, so patients can smile confidently even as they improve the overall look of their smile.

What You Need to Know About Clear Aligner Systems

Cosmetic braces are designed to provide functional improvements to the smile, without sacrificing a person’s confidence in the process. That is why ClearCorrect and Invisalign use clear trays to move the teeth, comfortably and discreetly.

  • The trays should be worn between 20 and 22 hours each day, to maximize results. Fortunately this still leaves time to remove the trays for regular dental hygiene and also mealtimes. This means patients that choose clear aligner systems to straighten their teeth are often able to take better care of their smiles during treatment, including attending regular dental checkups and cleanings, leading to fewer dental issues like cavities and less discoloration and staining.
  • It also means patients are able to enjoy their meals, without fear of getting foods stuck in their braces.
  • Because the custom trays can be easily swapped out, when it’s time to start the next stage of treatment, most patients enjoy fewer visits to the dentist’s office, when compared to traditional orthodontia, helping to save both time and money.
  • Talk to your dentist about whether ClearCorrect or Invisalign could be right for you and your smile!
