Metal braces don’t have to be the only way to get a straighter smile.invisalign

Smiling offers an amazing array of benefits. Smiling calms the body while also slowing your heart rate and blood pressure. It’s amazing how much smiling can do to improve your health and yet, if you have a smile that is less than ideal, you may be wondering what you can do to reap these benefits, too. Our Arlington, VA, dentist, Dr. Bruce Hanley, has just the answer.

Braces. Okay, hear us out! We aren’t talking about the type of braces that you are used to seeing from your childhood. We are talking about a more advanced technology that allows you to straighten your teeth with a clear system. Absolutely no metal is needed when you get Invisalign.

Invisalign uses clear, plastic aligners that fit similarly to whitening trays or mouthguards, except each aligner is custom-fitted to your mouth so that they provide the proper pressure they need to move teeth into their desired position. Your Invisalign treatment is mapped out first and foremost by our Arlington, VA, general dentist, who will also be able to show you a computer image of what your smile will look like at the end of your treatment.

You can fix crooked teeth, crowding, gaps between teeth and a variety of bad bites (e.g. underbites) with Invisalign, and it’s the perfect option for older teens and adults who want to fix these problems but can’t fathom wearing metal brackets and wires to school or work everyday.

These aligners are also removable, which means that you don’t have to make any changes to your diet. With traditional braces, you’ll have to completely revamp what you can and can’t eat to protect the brackets and wires from damage. With Invisalign, all you have to do is remove your aligners to enjoy all of your favorite foods. Also, brushing and flossing your teeth has also never been easier since you can remove your aligners prior to caring for your smile.

If you wish to find out more about getting Invisalign in Arlington, VA, and whether you are an ideal candidate then call our office today to schedule your no-risk consultation. Getting a straight, beautiful smile can happen at any age. Let Bruce Hanley DDS and Associates help make that possible.
