If you've always dreamed of a straighter smile, but as an adult, you feel you've waited too long, Invisalign may be just the solution you need. As Invisalign dentists, Dr. Patrick Carroll and Dr. Deborah Shoemaker can create a custom set of clear aligners to gradually reposition your teeth in less than a year. Because Invisalign is removable, you'll maintain the freedom to take off your aligners whenever you want. Adults love the inconspicuous appearance and convenience of Invisalign.
If you're a candidate for clear braces, your first appointment will involve taking impressions and developing a design for your aligners. With special software, your doctor can create a treatment plan that will shift your teeth into the optimal position. A certified Invisalign lab will fabricate your series of aligners according to this treatment plan. Simply wear each aligner in your series for about two weeks, then move to the next. No one will notice that you're wearing clear braces, so your established image will remain intact. You can even remove your aligners whenever you'd like to eat, clean your teeth, or for special occasions (be sure to replace them afterwards).
You'll need to visit Exceptional Dentistry about every six weeks so that we can assess your progress. In 6 to 18 months, depending on your custom treatment plan, you’ll have a perfectly straight smile.
For mature teens and image-conscious adults alike, Invisalign is the clear alternative to metal braces! If you’re ready to start getting the straighter smile you’ve always wanted and look great while doing it, be sure to contact our office today.
