But some adults either never had the benefit of teeth straightening when they were younger, or in some cases, their teeth have shifted since orthodontic treatment, leaving them as crooked as before.
We've come a long way since the days of the "silver smile." For adults who want to straighten (or re-straighten)
At my office, we offer the option of "invisible,"
After an initial visit to my office, during which we'll take X-rays and dental impressions to make a three-dimensional model of your mouth, we'll map out a custom treatment plan that is right for you. The treatment is graduated; by changing the aligners every couple of weeks and coming into the office every six weeks or so, you'll be steadily – and unobtrusively – shifting your teeth. Treatment lasts about a year for most adults.
Most people don't even notice that a person is wearing Clear Correct aligners. Smooth plastic causes less mouth discomfort than the metal brackets of conventional braces, and the aligners are easier to keep clean. Since they are removable, patients don't have to worry about eating certain foods.
Modern Dentistry is pleased to offer Clear Correct – a modern solution for correcting your teeth so that you can feel confident whenever you flash your smile.
