Get a Straighter Smile with Invisalign® Convenient Clear Braces

Crooked teeth, gaps, and crowding can all make you feel embarrassed about your smile, but metal braces can be a real hassle. You may even feel like a straighter smile isn’t worth the aggravation.

Fortunately, our patients have a better option with Invisalign® clear braces. These custom-fitted braces can comfortably get you to a straighter smile, and because they are transparent, no one will even know you’re straightening them at all!

At Ballantyne Family Dental, we love helping our patients achieve smiles they’re excited to show off. Dr. Patel and her team are passionate about bringing more beautiful smiles to residents of Charlotte and surrounding communities. Get the smile you dream of by making an appointment today!

Benefits of Invisalign vs. Traditional Metal Braces

Both methods will give you straighter teeth, but there are a number of advantages Invisalign clear braces can offer. When compared with traditional braces, Invisalign braces are:

More Attractive – The transparent braces are virtually undetectable to the naked eye, so others will only notice your natural, beautiful smile.

More Comfortable – The trays are custom-fitted to your teeth and are so thin, you’ll barely feel a difference.

More Convenient – Invisalign braces are removable, so you can eat, drink, and brush your teeth normally without having to work around awkward dental appliances.

More Efficient – Traditional braces take two years on average, even with minor cases; Invisalign braces often work in half that time.

Safer – Having no metal attachments involved means no bruising or injuring your soft mouth tissue, and less risk of breaking them with rough physical activity.

What Can Invisalign Fix?

Invisalign is an ideal treatment for mild to moderate alignment issues. These can include:

  • Crooked or rotated teeth
  • Gaps between teeth
  • Crowded or overlapping teeth
  • Mild overbite or underbite

The Invisalign Treatment Plan

Once Dr. Patel confirms that you are a candidate for Invisalign, she will use a high-tech scanner to create a 3D digital model of your mouth. With this, she can show you what your teeth will look like at the end of treatment.

This model is also used to create your series of custom aligner trays. The trays are designed to put subtle pressure on targeted areas. Each tray set is worn for approximately two weeks before moving on to the next. Each successive tray adjusts the pressure, gradually guiding your teeth into the desired position.
