Years ago, it was mostly teenagers who wore braces -- mouthfuls of uncomfortable metal that affected how they spoke, ate, and smiled.
But today, people of all ages are transforming their smiles using a modern approach to straightening teeth: no metal brackets, no wires to tighten.
Evergreen Dental is proud to offer our patients Invisalign® treatment. We’ll use our iTero scanner to take a complete digital image of your smile, and then we’ll create a series of custom-made aligners.
These smooth, comfortable plastic aligners will gently reposition your teeth, and you’ll pop in a new set every two weeks or so until your treatment is complete.
Because the aligners are made from clear plastic, they’re nearly invisible -- and won’t irritate your cheeks and gums like sharp metal brackets and wires.
Since they’re removable, you’re able to eat the foods you love without worrying about snapping off a bracket or -- ick -- biting into a sandwich and getting bread stuck under your wires.
Brushing and flossing with traditional metal braces can be difficult, and you run the risk of staining your teeth around the brackets. With Invisalign®, you’re able to take out your aligners to brush and floss normally.
If you’re embarrassed or frustrated by crooked teeth, ask us about how Invisalign® could help. We’ll explain everything in more detail, and give you an estimate of how long your treatment would take.
Once you pop in that first set of aligners, you’re on your way to discovering the confidence that comes from having a better smile.
