Over 81 percent of people believe their smile appears unattractive in photographs, and having crooked teeth is one of the primary reasons behind an embarrassing smile. While traditional braces are effective at straightening teeth, many people are self-conscious about having metal brackets and wires so prominent in their smile for several years. Dr. Rebecca Bork offers the option of modern clear braces with both Invisalign® invisible orthodontics and ClearCorrect clear aligners as an alternative to traditional metal braces. An ideal solution for adults and teens who want a discreet tooth alignment solution, Invisalign and ClearCorrect solutions, can often straighten teeth quicker than traditional orthodontics in Allen, TX.
Invisalign and ClearCorrect use unique clear aligners that appear nearly invisible while being worn. These clear aligners can correct a variety of bite misalignments, including crooked teeth, gaps between teeth, slight crowding, overbites, underbites and crossbites. Both Invisalign aligners and ClearCorrect clear braces are switched out every few weeks for a more finely tuned set of aligners that will continually adjust your teeth. Clear braces must be worn between 20-22 hours a day to be most effective, with patients only needing to remove them to eat or clean their teeth. With proper compliance, many patients experience a shorter treatment time to achieve their straight smile.
With clear braces, many people will never know you were wearing orthodontics at all.
Take the aligners out whenever you eat, drink or clean your teeth for less impact to your daily life.
Since you can remove the aligners, you are able to eat almost any food variety without worry about breakage.
By removing the aligners, you can brush and floss your teeth without hinderance from brackets or wires.
With proper compliance, the clear aligners will not break, preventing stalls or delays in treatment.
The clear aligners are made of soft plastic, which will not cut the gums, lips or tongue.
Many people view orthodontics, including ClearCorrect and Invisalign, as a form of cosmetic dentistry, but straight teeth also improve your oral health and function too. When your teeth are aligned properly, your bite improves and it becomes easier to keep your teeth and gums clean. Both ClearCorrect and Invisalign are popular option for teens and adults who may be embarrassed about wearing braces or those who are looking for discrete orthodontics in Allen, TX. With Dr. Bork’s artistic approach to dental care, you can rest at ease knowing that with proper oral care and clear braces treatment, you can achieve the smile of your dreams.
