Invisalign is an orthodontic appliance that can straighten your smile without appearing clearly or detracting from the look of your natural teeth. Invisalign is an alternative solution to braces that offers a more cosmetically pleasing way to align your teeth.
At Lynch Dental Center, our doctors can fit you with an Invisalign plan that straightens your teeth in the most discrete way possible. Our highly qualified dentists in the Chicagoland area have offices in Chicago, and River Forest, IL. They work with you to design your custom Invisalign corrective molds.
How Does Invisalign Straighten Teeth?
You can create the perfect smile with Invisalign by incrementally shifting your teeth with aligners. Traditional braces work by tightening your teeth with a metal wire. Invisalign works similarly, except the metal is replaced by clear molds. These clear aligners fit comfortably over your teeth to gradually move them into a straighter position. Every few weeks your Chicago, IL, dentist will have a new mold for you which will bring the teeth closer to alignment. This process is repeated until you have reached your desired results.
The plastic Invisalign is made from is completely safe, sturdy, and BPA-free. With proper care, they will cause no problems with your existing teeth. Also, because they are removable, you won't have to risk breaking them while eating or brushing your teeth. In fact, all of your normal routines will remain the same because Invisalign is removable and convenient. In a few short months, you will have straight teeth.
The Invisalign Procedure
The Invisalign procedure is less invasive than the procedures for braces or veneers. Your dentist will start by taking a mold of your teeth to build the custom Invisalign aligners. Incremental adjustments are made on new aligners and over time your teeth will be straight. Compared to veneers or braces, Invisalign requires no extra apparatus to go directly on your teeth. With braces, each of your teeth must have a metal bracket. Veneers even require you to shave off some tooth enamel to apply correctly.
