Do you want to straighten your smile, but you do not want to wear metal braces? Invisalign clear aligners are a discreet, comfortable solution for improving your smile without metal braces. Invisalign aligners are made from a clear BPA-free plastic that fit comfortably over your teeth, shifting them into the desired position. Smile Structure Dentistry & Braces offers Invisalign clear aligners for our adult and teen patients at our clinics in San Antonio.
Invisalign clear aligners work by putting slight pressure on teeth to shift them into place. Every few weeks, patients receive a new set of aligners that are slightly different, bringing their teeth closer to the desired position. Invisalign aligners are designed using advanced 3D imaging to create perfectly fitted orthodontic appliances that work like braces without wires, brackets or bands. Treatment times are similar to braces, with most patients achieving results in 12-24 months.
While Invisalign clear aligners are not “braces,” they can achieve similar results and are almost invisible. There are many benefits for patients who choose Invisalign for their orthodontic treatment. Both teens and adults love the discreet, clear design that is less noticeable than braces. Invisalign clear aligners are also removable, as you can take off your aligners to eat and perform oral hygiene. In comparison to braces, Invisalign aligners are more comfortable and less invasive, making them the right choice for many individuals.
