If you want straight teeth but hate the thought of wearing metal in your mouth for a year or more, your Prairie Village dentists have the answer: invisible braces. Invisible braces are just as effective as metal wires and brackets, minus the discomfort and awkwardness.
Invisible braces feature custom, clear aligners (similar to transparent mouth guards) to reposition your teeth slowly. These discreet braces are perfect for working professionals, college students, parents and anyone who wants a teeth straightening solution that fits their lifestyle.
Clear Correct Braces
Dr. Smith offers ClearCorrect “invisible” aligners as an alternative to conventional braces. ClearCorrect features a series of removable aligners that fit over your upper and lower arches. Each aligner moves your teeth a tiny bit at a time, until they are straight and even. ClearCorrect can be used to treat:
• Gapped teeth
• Crowded teeth
• Rotated teeth
• Crooked teeth
ClearCorrect braces are perfect for people who want a discreet, comfortable way to improve their smile. Because the braces are removable, you can eat whatever you want and clean your teeth easily. You can even take the braces off for business meetings or special events. Most patients who are candidates for traditional braces are also good candidates for ClearCorrect.
Getting Invisible Braces
Even before treatment begins, your dentist in Prairie Village, KS can show you how your teeth can be improved by ClearCorrect orthodontics. After the consultation, Dr. Smith will take X-rays of the head and mouth, pictures, and impressions of your teeth. The information is used to create a custom treatment plan that is sent to the ClearCorrect laboratory. The lab will create a series of aligners and send them to your dentist. In just a few days, you’re ready to wear your first ClearCorrect aligner.
