Straighten Your Smile the Subtle Way

No, you don’t have to wear metal braces in order to get the results you want.invisalign

We know that most teens and adults loathe the idea of needing braces, but sometimes it’s necessary not just for the appearance but also the health of your smile. If you or your teenager is contemplating orthodontic treatment to finally get that straighter smile may our Bay Ridge, Brooklyn, NY, dentists, Dr. Frank Visintini and Dr. Merryl Visintini, suggest Invisalign?

Instead of bonding metal brackets and wires to the front of your teeth to move and shift your teeth into the proper position, we will provide you with a set of custom-made clear plastic aligners. These aligners look similar to a mouthguard and are made from high-quality plastic that is completely clear, which means that when you are wearing these aligners people won’t be so quick to notice.

So, how do you get aligners that are able to know exactly how to move your smile around to get the results you want? Easy! When you come in for your consultation not only will we examine your smile to make sure that your goals align with what Invisalign can offer you, but also we will start the treatment and planning process.

During the treatment and planning phase, our Bay Ridge, Brooklyn, Invisalign dentist will take impressions of your teeth, which our special computer software will turn into 3D images. From there, we can tell the computer exactly what teeth need to move and how much throughout the course of your treatment until you get the final results. This information is then sent to an Invisalign lab to help them create your very own unique set of aligners.

Every aligner is custom-made and will shift teeth a predetermined amount. Of course, it’s important that you wear your aligners as much as possible everyday (it’s recommended that you wear these aligners about 22 hours out of the day, only removing them for eating, drinking, brushing or flossing). Each aligner will be worn for about 2 weeks before being replaced with the next aligner in your treatment plan. As you get further into the Invisalign process you’ll start to see your new smile take shape.
