At Gastonia Family Dentistry, we want all of our patients to smile with pride! For patients who would like a straighter smile without the use of traditional metal braces, our dentists recommend Invisalign® clear braces. We are proud to bring invisible braces and be an Invisalign provider near you at our Gastonia, NC dentist office.
How Do Invisalign Clear Braces Work?
Have you had braces before, but then stopped wearing your retainer? Have your teeth nearly shifted back to the way they looked before your orthodontic treatment?
Invisalign braces may be just what you need to discreetly get your straight teeth back!
They are also a great option if you have never worn braces, but have mild to moderate crowding of your teeth. As an Invisalign provider, Gastonia Family Dentistry can help you straighten your teeth without having to refer you out to an orthodontist for traditional brackets and wires.
Aligning your teeth can have a positive impact on your appearance, but it also makes them easier to clean. These clear, removable braces allow you to keep your smile clean and avoid tooth decay and gum disease. The Invisalign system uses removable plastic trays that are easy to care for and comfortable to wear.
Are Invisalign Braces Right For Me?
When straightening your teeth, traditional braces may seem like your only option - but you may not like the look or feel of metal on your teeth. Invisalign has similar teeth straightening ability to braces, but are almost invisible to the eye.
If our Gastonia dental team determines you’re a good candidate for Invisalign, clear aligners are created to fit over your teeth in the same way that a mouth guard or whitening tray would. Each set of of these clear braces are worn for about 2 weeks, then are swapped out for the next set.
Over time, Invisalign braces move your teeth to a straighter, more aligned position within your mouth. In many of Gastonia Family Dentistry's cases, the Invisalign process takes a year or less to complete.
Benefits Of Invisalign Braces
- Clear aligners no one can tell you’re wearing
- Removable for easy maintenance and cleaning
- No dietary restrictions
- Most patients complete their Invisalign braces treatment in 1 year or less
- Invisalign braces can be more comfortable than wearing traditional braces
Invisalign® Teen Braces
If your teenager needs orthodontic treatment, Invisalign could be a better solution to straightening their teeth than using traditional metal braces.
Invisalign Teen is made specifically for teenagers and provides a nearly invisible method of straightening using clear, removable aligners that are custom-made for your teen’s smile. While traditional braces use wires, brackets, and bands, Invisalign makes getting a straighter smile simple with clear aligners.
At Gastonia Family Dentistry we often recommend Invisalign to our teenage patients because:
- Treatment is discreet
- Invisalign clear aligners are comfortable to wear
- Teens can easily remove the aligners to brush and floss their teeth, keeping their smile healthy during orthodontic treatment
- They can enjoy any food without worrying about damaging their braces
- There's no risk of emergency dental visits because of breaking wires or damaged brackets
- Straightening their teeth with Invisalign often takes less time than with traditional orthodontic treatment
How Much Do Invisalign Braces Cost?
Everyone's smile is unique, so the cost of any orthodontic treatment is individualized for each patient. The cost of Invisalign is similar to traditional braces and other comparable orthodontic treatments.
The best way to get all the information you need about Invisalign treatment cost is to schedule a consultation so we can discuss your individual treatment needs and budget requirements.
Flexible payment options are often available and your dental insurance may even cover part of your Invisalign treatment!
