Are Invisalign clear braces easy to wear?

One reason Invisalign clear braces are so popular is that they are comfortable and easy to wear. There are several advantages to choosing Invisalign over traditional braces or even some other short-term braces.

Invisalign aligner trays are made of a smooth plastic that will not irritate the inside of your cheek or lips. This is a significant advantage over traditional metal and wire braces.

People who have gone through Invisalign treatment also enjoy the convenience since the aligners are completely removable. Unlike regular braces, they can be taken out to eat, brush and floss. If you participate in sports, you don’t have to risk the safety of your teeth since you can remove Invisalign to wear a protective mouth guard.

Since Invisalign uses a progressive series of aligners, you will be able to see and feel them working each time you move to the next set. This will keep you motivated since you can see the progress as your teeth are gently guided into their proper position.

These are just some of the reasons to consider Invisalign clear braces. If you are thinking about Invisalign and would like more information, please contact our Queen Anne dental office. We will be happy to arrange a complimentary consultation so we can discuss your orthodontic needs.

What is cosmetic dentistry?

Cosmetic dentistry includes any treatment that corrects aesthetic imperfections in your smile. We have so many options available today, that there is virtually no problem we can’t correct.

Teeth whitening is considered to be cosmetic dentistry because it can transform the appearance of your smile. It is a quick and easy procedure that produces dramatic results that greatly enhance the appearance of your smile.

Porcelain veneers are another example of a very effective cosmetic treatment. Veneers look natural and can be used to address a wide variety of dental flaws. These include problems like chipped or broken teeth, teeth with uneven spaces, and even severely discolored teeth that don’t respond to whitening.

Invisalign and Six Month Smiles clear braces are two short-term orthodontic treatments that can quickly and effectively correct misaligned teeth. The bonus is that straightening your teeth also has oral health benefits.

Dental restorations like crowns are most often used to protect and strengthen a damaged tooth. But we can also use crowns to alter the shape of a tooth or cover an old filling, so in this way they can also be considered cosmetic.

As you can see, cosmetic dentistry offers us lots of options for correcting a number of imperfections. Please contact our Queen Anne office to learn more about how these treatments can benefit you.

How long do I have to wear Invisalign each day?

The recommended minimum time to wear your Invisalign aligners is 22 hours per day. If you can wear them longer, that’s even better.

Invisalign is an easy way to correct misaligned teeth in a relatively short amount of time when compared to traditional orthodontics. Even though they are discreet, convenient, and comfortable to wear, Invisalign clear aligners have a lot of work to do!

One of the things that our Queen Anne patients love most about treatment with Invisalign is that the aligners are completely removable. You will be able to continue eating all the foods that you enjoy. And you don’t have to worry about debris getting caught in brackets and wires as you would with traditional braces.

Also, oral hygiene with Invisalign is much more efficient since you can remove the aligners to brush and floss thoroughly. If you play sports, you can also remove Invisalign so that you can wear a protective sports guard. It’s great to have this freedom, but you have to remember that the more conscientious you are about wearing your aligners, the sooner you will see the beautiful results.

Will I need to wear a retainer after Invisalign treatment?

There is virtually no orthodontic treatment, short-term or otherwise, that does not require a retainer to be worn for maintaining results. Invisalign is an amazing and efficient solution for straightening teeth, but yes, you will need to wear a retainer.

You may wonder why, with all that advanced dental knowledge and technology, you still need to wear a retainer. It’s a common mistake to think that when the alignment portion of treatment is complete, you’re finished.

Your teeth do look pretty great after treatment, and you want them to say that way. That is why you need to wear your retainer conscientiously.

Our teeth are always moving, and of course you never actually feel it happening, but you see the results. While you were wearing your Invisalign aligners, they were gradually working to move your teeth into proper alignment.

When treatment is finished, and you go on with your “life after Invisalign,” your teeth are still moving. Retainers do the job of reminding your teeth where they belong, encouraging them to stay in proper alignment. Without a retainer, your teeth will gradually start to move back into the “life before Invisalign” position, and all that time and investment will be wasted.

You made the commitment to wear the aligners as instructed, and you now enjoy the beautiful results. Take the simple step of wearing the retainer provided by our Queen Anne Dental office, and enjoy those stunning results for a long, long time.

How do Six Month Smiles braces work?

Six Month Smiles braces are an innovative approach to orthodontic treatment offered at our Queen Anne Dental office. With Six Month Smiles, we combine the best aspects of traditional braces with modified treatment and materials. The result is a straightforward cosmetic solution that fits your lifestyle

It may seem impossible, but the average treatment time for Six Month Smiles is really only about six months! The Six Month Smiles system is aesthetically pleasing because it uses clear brackets and wires that are tooth-colored, making them more discreet than traditional braces.

The primary reason that Six Month Smiles work so quickly is that treatment does not address your dental bite, and we work on straightening only the teeth that show when you smile. One of the reasons traditional braces take so long to work is that they correct your dental bite as well as straightening your teeth.

Most adults do not need any bite adjustment, making Six Month Smiles the perfect choice for effective, short-term orthodontic treatment. Since Six Month Smiles treatment times are shorter, they are usually more affordable than traditional braces or aligner treatment.

If you’re interested in learning more about Six Month Smiles braces or our other orthodontic treatment options, please contact our Queen Anne Dental office today!

What options do you offer for quickly straightening teeth?

Our office uses both Invisalign® clear braces and Six Month braces to correct moderately misaligned teeth. Each treatment has its own advantages, but they are both excellent options for correcting the appearance of crooked teeth in a relatively short amount of time.

Invisalign® uses a series of clear plastic aligners that are calibrated to gently reposition your teeth and gradually move them into proper alignment. Invisalign® aligners also have the advantage of being completely removable and almost invisible. This allows you to eat normally and brush and floss more effectively than with traditional braces. Invisalign® aligners are also very comfortable and cause little irritation for the wearer.

Six Month Braces are very effective as a solution for correcting misaligned teeth and can provide desired results in an average time of six months. Treatment times are shorter with Six Month braces because they are designed to straighten only the teeth that are visible when you smile; they are not meant to correct your dental bite as traditional braces do.

Depending on the extent of misalignment and the correction needed, we can easily perfect the appearance of your smile in as little as six months.
