You may be tired of seeing gaps and overlaps between teeth that hurt the quality of your smile, but are you ready to move forward with orthodontic treatment? There are different reasons people may put off a procedure to straighten their smile. Many are worried that in order to fix their alignment issues, they will have to wear metal braces that draw unwanted attention and interfere with their daily behaviors. At our Riverside, CA dentist’s office, you can actually have work done to fix malocclusion without these appliances. With Invisalign aligners, we can take the time to correct alignment flaws with discreet appliances. In addition to being hard to see, Invisalign aligners are easy for patients to remove, which means they are not going to remain in your way when you need to eat or clean your smile.
Are You Bothered By Alignment Flaws That Hurt Your Smile?
Even minor flaws with the alignment of your smile can be a source of frustration. Are you worried about the presence of a gap in your smile? Do you resent the way overlaps make teeth look cramped or crowded? These issues can be frustrating because of their effect on the way you look, but you should know that they can also have consequences for your oral health.
Beginning Treatment With Invisalign
At the start of your treatment, you will receive a series of custom-made trays that you will wear over your teeth. Each set of aligners that you receive will bring you a step closer to having straight teeth. You can find that they are easily worn without drawing unwanted attention, as they are made from a clear material that is hard to see. You can also have few concerns about them because they are quickly removed whenever you want to eat, or when you are set to brush or floss your teeth.
What Else Can Your Dentist Do To Address Cosmetic Concerns?
It may not be necessary to move forward with Invisalign treatment to fix alignment issues in some cases. Relatively mild cases of malocclusion may be treatable with other cosmetic dental procedures. Carefully made and placed porcelain veneers are effective at hiding gaps and overlaps that bother you. Veneers are thin shells that are carefully crafted so that they can be placed over the fronts of teeth. Their placement can hide any awkward overlaps or gaps so that they no longer make you self-conscious!
