Instead of traditional braces, Invisalign treatment relies on a set of clear plastic aligners, custom-designed by our team and the Invisalign lab to represent different stages of your smile’s transformation. The patient’s job is easy – just wear each aligner for a certain amount of time (usually a couple of weeks) and then switch to the next one. Routine appointments allow our Houston doctors to keep an eye on your progress, and that’s it! The journey to a more aesthetically pleasing look has never been simpler.
In addition to their exceptionally subtle appearance, Invisalign offers patients several other great benefits, including:
- Patients won’t have to worry about the discomfort that loose orthodontic wires or metal brackets can create. The smooth plastic of your Invisalign aligners is custom-designed to fit your unique smile as perfectly as possible.
- Your new aligners are removable, which means that patients don’t have to make any inconvenient changes to their diet or oral hygiene routine.
- Do you want to look your best at an upcoming party or event? It’s fine to take out your aligner for an hour or so and show off your best smile.
- Typically, Invisalign treatment is completed in a faster timeframe than traditional treatment – only 8-18 months!
Patients have been wearing traditional braces for over a hundred years now, and today, they’re still a reliable, cost-effective option for children, teenagers, and adults alike. Silver brackets bonded to the front of teeth serve as “anchors” that hold the orthodontic wire allowing it to move the teeth gradually into their preferable position. This option provides plenty of durability, and advancements in designs and materials help to minimize irritation. Plus, younger patients will be sure to enjoy choosing their favorite color of elastics to wear! Neutral colors like gray and white are also available for those who are more image-conscious.
