When you’re wearing metal braces, it is almost impossible to hide them from the world. Even if you try to hide them when you talk or laugh, invisalignthe metal parts will be noticeable. This is why many patients want Invisalign braces instead. Depending on your orthodontic concerns, an Invisalign treatment at Park Crossing Dentistry, in South Charlotte, NC, may help you straighten your teeth and get a much more attractive smile.

What Is Invisalign?
Though they are firmly rooted, the teeth can be adjusted with gentle force over a period of time. The traditional way to achieve this is by using metal brackets and wires, but there is another option that has become very popular with patients. Invisalign is a treatment that substitutes those metal braces with clear plastic trays that align the teeth. The more you wear these trays, the more your teeth settle into the well-defined grooves until your whole smile has realigned.

Would It Help You?
Your dentist may be able to help your smile with “invisible” aligners if you have a relatively minor orthodontic problem. Examples of treatable issues are small gaps between the teeth or a tooth that is positioned higher than another on the gum line. Tooth crowding and overlapping can also be resolved with aligning trays. If you have a strong desire to have a better-looking smile but really don’t feel comfortable wearing braces for a long period of time, visit your South Charlotte cosmetic dentistry office to see if you're a candidate for Invisalign.

Starting an Invisalign Treatment
There’s no need to worry about any discomfort or inconvenience when you begin an Invisalign treatment. The first step is getting pictures and impressions of your smile so that a before-and-after plan can be mapped out by your orthodontist. The dentist will send your impressions to a special lab where your custom trays will be created in a matter of days. You must visit your orthodontist's office regularly to pick up each new tray and consult with your dentist about the progress of your treatment.

Getting Your Trays
You may be surprised by how quickly you will be wearing your first Invisalign tray after visiting Park Crossing Dentistry, a cosmetic dentistry office in South Charlotte, NC, that's focused on providing patients with high levels of care. Schedule your initial consultation today by calling 704-541-5059 for an appointment with Dr. Richard Bateman, Dr. Joshua Neubauer, or Dr. Emerald Powell.

Find out how a simple nearly invisible orthodontic system could give you a straight smile.

As an adult, you may think the ship has sailed on having a straight, beautiful smile but our South Charlotte, NC, dentists Dr. Richard invisalignBateman, Dr. Joshua Neubauer and Dr. Emerald Powell are here to tell you that this is far from the truth. Thanks to Invisalign, it’s now easier than ever for teens and adults to get the smiles they want without having to wear metal braces in order to do it.

What is Invisalign?

By now, most people have heard of Invisalign; however, how much do you actually know about this treatment? Invisalign consists of a set of clear aligners (that look similar to whitening trays) that are custom-made to fit tightly over your teeth to provide ample force and pressure to move teeth into the ideal alignment.

How do Invisalign aligners work?

Each aligner is custom-made by an Invisalign lab based on specific movements that our South Charlotte, NC, general dentists map out based on images taken of your mouth. Thanks to this amazing software, we can map out exactly how each aligner will shift teeth, which teeth will need to shift and how far they will move with each new aligner. Aligners are worn for about two weeks at a time before being replaced with the next set. Over time, you’ll begin to see the changes to your smile.

What is life like with Invisalign?

Most people worry that the minute they get braces that everything will change. Luckily, Invisalign fits right into your lifestyle, making it simple to go about your normal routine but also working to get the smile you want.

Invisalign aligners are removable, so you can take them out prior to eating or brushing/flossing your teeth. Since you can remove your aligners you don’t have any food restrictions and you can continue to brush and floss normally without having to worry about cleaning around metal wires and brackets to remove food and plaque buildup.
