For many adults, it may seem like it’s too late to pursue their dream of having a set of perfectly straight teeth. After all, you’ve worked hard to create a professional image that you can feel proud of – the last thing you need is a mouthful of metal that makes you feel like you’re back in middle school. The truth is, traditional metal braces may work well for children, but many patients agree that they’re just not worth it in the long run. Here in Westfield, NJ, the last thing Dr. David Weinman wants is for anyone to give up on improving their smile; that’s why he’s happy to offer treatment options that provide effective results with only minimal discomfort. Even the most self-conscious patients can achieve the look of their dreams with Invisalign, a seamless orthodontic option that lives up to its name!
The process is simple enough – you’ll be provided with a series of clear, customized aligners that each represent a different stage of your smile as it moves into its ideal alignment. All you need to is wear each one for the appropriate amount of time before switching to the next in the set. We’ll also need to see you every four to six weeks so that Dr. Weinman can ensure that everything is going smoothly.
Invisalign has countless benefits when compared with traditional braces, including:
- Seamlessness – the aligners are virtually unnoticeable, meaning that your friends and coworkers probably won’t ever notice they’re there at all. They’ll only be marveling at the beautiful results that follow!
- Removability – unlike metal braces, which have to stay in place 24/7, Invisalign aligners can be removed in order to eat and/or practice oral hygiene, meaning that you won’t have to make any frustrating changes to your life in order to accommodate them.
- Comfort – there are no poking metal wires or uncomfortable tightening sessions to contend with; only clear, smooth plastic that’s been custom-made to slide over your teeth.
- Speed – Invisalign treatment usually only lasts around 12-18 months, which is a significant improvement when compared to the multiple years traditional braces can need to be fully effective.
