Straightening your smile doesn’t have to involve clunky brackets and thick metal wires. With the advancements made in the orthodontic industry in the past few years, more and more options are being made available that are discreet, comfortable, and effective.

One of those options is Invisalign®, a procedure we’re proud to offer here at Smiley Dental Arlington in Arlington, Texas. Let’s look at what it is and how it can help fix your smile.

What is it?

Invisalign is a discreet way to straighten your teeth. Instead of using traditional metal braces and brackets, Invisalign employs clear plastic retainers that slowly move your teeth into the correct position over time.

How does it work?

The Invisalign process is pretty simple. You’ll come in for an initial appointment with your dentist to assess your needs, then the aligners will be made from molds of your teeth. You’ll wear each aligner for two weeks, then move on to the next set. Each set will move your teeth into the position they should be in.

Is it effective?

Invisalign is just as effective as traditional braces at straightening teeth, although it may not be able to address some of the crowding, spacing, or pallet issues other orthodontic treatments can.
