Cosmetic dentistry helps our team improve smile beauty. Along with teeth whitening and our lifelike dental restorations, we can also offer a cosmetic approach to orthodontics. In today’s blog, your Rochester, MN, dentist talks about how we strengthen smiles with clear and cozy custom Invisalign® aligners.
The Impact of Correcting Uneven Teeth
When you have crooked, crowded, or overlapping teeth, then this could obviously have an impact on the beauty of your smile. But there are also issues for the health and function of your smile too! For example, misalignment often makes thorough brushing and flossing digital, so the risk of tooth decay and gum disease is much higher. For others, the changes to your bite balance could strain the jaw joints and lead to the onset of TMJ disorder and bruxism (teeth grinding). To keep your smile healthy and beautiful you need orthodontic treatment. For teens and adults, we can offer this with comfortably clear Invisalign® aligners.
The Invisalign® System
How does Invisalign® correct your uneven smile? We will provide you with a series of clear plastic aligners. You then wear a set of them for 20 to 23 hours a day, over a period of about two weeks. At this point, you then begin wearing the next set for the same amount of time. You will see us for periodic visits so we can make sure your smile is being corrected as we prescribed. For adults, treatment could take as little as one year. Teens could see optimal results in a year to 18 months. Along with being clear and easy to clean and maintain, these are also removable. Which means you don’t have to change how you eat or struggle to brush and floss around metal orthodontics. Instead, you simply take out your aligners!
How We Create Your Aligners
Each set will be custom-made for your smile to ensure an attractive appearance and a comfortable fit, as well as treatment with precision. To do so, we will begin by gathering detailed digital images of your smile, and then combining them to create a 3D model of your smile. We send this to experts who use it to design and craft your aligners. You’re now on the path to an even and beautiful smile!
