Invisible Braces for a Perfect Smile
A perfectly aligned smile can boost your self-confidence. However, most people shy away from smile alignment because they don’t want bulky and unsightly metal braces. Invisalign braces are designed to resolve such discomfort.
What Are Invisalign Braces?
Invisible braces are similar to traditional metal braces as they both work to correct your smile. A brace can realign your smile if you have overbites, cross-bites, under-bites, widely spaced teeth, or overcrowded teeth.
The only distinction is invisible braces are barely noticeable, unlike traditional braces. Invisible braces are also removable and custom-made for your teeth. They use ultra-light material, and you can replace them after every few weeks to get the best result.
How Do Invisible Braces Work?
Invisible braces work pretty much like visible braces, although there are some differences. The realignment process has three main steps and takes about six months. However, you’ll start seeing results within a few weeks. Here are the steps involved:
1. Initial Assessment
Your doctor will use state-of-the-art scanners to take the first 3D digital scan of your teeth. The initial assessment is essential for mapping out the custom braces based on your needs. Also, your physician will provide answers to your questions.
2. Brace Fitting
Once the precise 3D scans are captured, the images are sent to the lab to make the custom braces. The next visit is all about ensuring your aligners fit properly. The doctor will also explain how to wear, remove and care for your new braces.
3. Doctor Checks
Your new invisible braces will start working just as soon as you start wearing them. As mentioned, the realignment process may take up to six months, so your doctor will schedule checks to ensure everything is progressing according to plan.
What Are the Benefits of Invisible Braces?
The merits of invisible braces are obvious and straightforward. Unlike metal braces, the invisible aligners are made from ultra-light material. You might feel a bit odd at first, but the braces aren’t bulky and certainly not uncomfortable.
Secondly, the braces are clear/transparent and undetectable. You can carry on with your life as if nothing has changed, and no one will realize you have braces. Invisibility is one of the main benefits of these aligners.
Thirdly, invisible braces perform the same task of realigning your teeth and giving you the perfect smile you’ve always desired. The braces gradually move your teeth in place over time and are easy to fit and remove.
Clear braces are also effective and convenient. You can fit and remove them effortlessly, allowing you to brush your teeth and gums for better oral hygiene. They are also durable, so you can eat and drink whatever you want while wearing the aligners.
