Sometimes you can have fairly healthy teeth, and still wonder why your smile isn’t all that it’s cracked up to be; in this case, you might do very well to ask a cosmetic dentist about the phenomenon of clear aligner orthodontics and how they straighten teeth. The old unsightly metal braces understandably don’t go over so well with kids (much less with adults) and this state of affairs has created the perfect solution.
Serving the same purposes that metal braces and other forms of ceramic bonding used to do effectively – although unsightly and often unpleasantly, these clear and invisible trays have all the strengths and none of the weaknesses of these methods. The plastics with which they are manufactured are top-notch and sterile, and much more easily removable than the older forms of teeth alignment. Just as importantly, orthodontic aligner trays are all custom made solutions exclusively for your individual mouth, requiring a trip to your dentist for measurements. As the weeks go by, you will receive new sets to match your steadily-improving smile; and, all the while, no one will even know they’re there, and the gradual improvement will eventually be pleasantly noticeable by everyone – most of all, you!
3 Great Reasons to Consider Clear Aligners for your Teeth
Among the advantages they have over braces of the past are:
- Much reduced discomfort in the supportive gums. The clear aligners are made from a direct impression mold of your own teeth, and so are as intimately tailored for them as is feasible with current dental technology.
- Obviously, the invisible aspect of is very attractive; they are, after all, largely a cosmetic amendment.
- Ease of removal for cleaning, brushing and even eating; thus, they promote dental health doubly when compared to the difficult-to-remove braces of old.
