Your smile is one way you may approach the world with warmth and joy. Flashing a stunning mouthful of pearly whites can't help but have a positive impact on those around you. It should be an asset, but when you feel uncomfortable with your teeth's appearance, your smile can quickly fade away, hidden behind your lips.
For some people, this is no big deal. But if you envision a smile that you'd be proud to display, then you need a partner in Elk Grove, IL to realize that vision. At Elk Grove Smile Center, we can offer several cosmetic dental procedures, including the Invisalign system for correcting any problems you have with your teeth's alignment.
The Benefits of Straighter Teeth
When you have a more aligned and corrected smile, you'll find numerous improvements:
- Easier maintenance – Aligned teeth create surfaces your toothbrush can reach to keep clean and create spacing that makes flossing more effective.
- Healthier gums – The treatment reduces your risk of periodontal disease because your gums will also be easier to clean.
- Improved bite – When your teeth line up correctly, your bite becomes more efficient, chewing is easier, and your jaw health will be optimized.
The Invisalign Process
Invisalign straightens your teeth by providing a series of specially molded, clear trays that you wear 20-22 hours each day. This treatment eliminates the need for brackets and wires that are uncomfortable and intrusive. Instead, Invisalign trays are inconspicuous and straightforward. Likely, most people won't even realize you're wearing them.
The process begins with a consultation. Then, we'll assess your teeth, bite, and alignments to ensure Invisalign will work for you. If you decide to go ahead with treatment, we will scan your teeth with 3D imaging software to simulate the process, including the amount of time the treatment will take.
Then, you'll wear each aligner for fourteen days or so, switching trays as required by your treatment plan. Finally, you will remove them to eat and for brushing and flossing. Because the tray is clear, you'll be able to watch your smile's progress as your teeth slowly change position.
