Whether you’re a professional or a full-time parent, looking like a teenager isn’t an option for you. But you still want to fix your crooked or misaligned teeth. Don’t worry. As top cosmetic dentists in Houston, we can help you achieve the straight teeth you want without unsightly metal braces.
Reposition your teeth without braces
As an adult looking to straighten your teeth, Invisalign® might be the perfect option for you. This FDA-approved orthodontic treatment involves a custom-molded set of transparent, removable aligners that progressively reposition your teeth.
Invisalign® takes away all the most painful aspects of traditional braces:
- No brackets or wires to gouge the insides of your cheeks.
- Aligners are removable, for easy brushing and flossing.
- You can eat whatever you want – even popcorn!
- Fewer doctor visits are required – usually one every six weeks.
- They’re virtually invisible!
How Invisalign® works
When you come in for a consultation, we will use 3-D computer imaging to show you what your future smile will look like. Then we take molds of your teeth and send them off to a lab to create a series of aligners (which you will change out every two weeks) to reposition your teeth over one to two years.
Another alternative: veneers
Even though Invisalign® is a relatively hassle-free form of orthodontia, not everyone wants to invest the time or money in straightening their teeth. Another option for achieving the beautiful smile you want is the placement of veneers on the front of your teeth. Veneers are thin layers of porcelain or composite that cover stained, chipped, cracked or slightly misaligned teeth.
The only way to determine your best option for straight teeth without braces is to come in for a consultation. Call our Houston cosmetic dentists to schedule your complimentary consultation!
