Mansfield, TX, dentist offers clear aligners

Are you tired of having crooked and misaligned teeth? This can be a frustrating problem that may make you feel self-conscious to show off your smile. If you have been putting off treatment due to worry that braces will disrupt your appearance even more, there is an alternative solution. Your Mansfield, TX, dentist offers clear aligners that can help straighten your pearly whites discreetly.

The Benefits Of Our Clear Aligners

Discreet orthodontic methods have become popularized especially in recent years for the many advantages they offer. They are undetectable to others, comfortable, and can treat a variety of concerns. Several different companies offer this option, so why have this done through your dentist? Our method is dentist-monitored and customized to your unique preferences. This means that we can help guide you through the process and any questions you may have. Our unnoticeable trays may also be more comfortable than traditional metal braces because there are no wires or brackets. You can also take them out to eat, drink, and do your oral hygiene routine, which you would not be able to do if you have braces.

Getting Started On Your Treatment

Before beginning this process, you will first need a consultation with your dentist. They will examine your smile and take an impression of your oral cavity. This treatment option is available for many patients, but if you are not a good candidate for this, your dentist may recommend an alternative option such as esthetic braces.

A series of clear trays will be made to help gradually shift your teeth into proper placement. You will wear these all day for the majority of the day. Make sure to remove them when you eat and do your oral hygiene routine. The length for this process can vary depending on your personal needs. On average, this may take around one to two years. Luckily, though, if you have any special events at this time your aligners will not disrupt your smile.

Your Results Can Last

After your smile has been corrected, you may need to wear a retainer to hold your teeth in their current position. This can help maintain your results for many years. It is normal for your pearly whites to shift slightly, but wearing a retainer can help avoid serious misalignment. For a full smile transformation, you can brighten your smile with a professional whitening treatment as well. This will help you achieve a full white grin. Remember to continue seeing your dentist regularly so that your oral health and alignment can continue to be monitored.
