Relying On Aligners To Fix Your Smile

Until you do something about it, problems with your teeth spacing will continue to negatively affect your appearance. Unfortunately, this is also a problem that can interfere with your oral health by disrupting your bite function and oral hygiene efforts. The good news is that discreet, patient-friendly fixes are available. With a set of Invisalign clear aligners, you can gradually move your smile in ways that benefit your appearance and well-being. Our Katy, TX dentist’s office is ready to discuss this service with you, and when appropriate we can even discuss alternative services that take on this and other problems with your smile.

Is There Something You Can Do To Discreetly Fix Your Smile Alignment?

If you want to do something about malocclusion—poor teeth spacing—but hope to avoid treatment with metal braces, we can recommend Invisalign as an alternative. By choosing clear aligners as your preferred approach to orthodontic work, you can make important adjustments while more easily fitting care into your daily life. In addition to offering the appeal of being hard to see, your appliances will be easy to remove, which means they are not going to be in your way.

Beginning Treatment With Invisalign Aligners

To provide the right treatment experience for you, we will carefully evaluate your teeth and oral structures. Along with measurements for your appliances, this helps us to see how your adjustment should proceed. You will wear each appliance in your set for a designated length of time. Taking them out to eat and clean your teeth will certainly be allowed, but you should keep them in place throughout the day to stay on track with your adjustment end date.

What Else Can You Do To Cover Gaps Or Overlaps Between Teeth?

If you are a good candidate for another approach to care, you and your dentist can talk about the advantages of cosmetic dental work to treat spacing problems. With porcelain veneers, we can cover these kinds of spacing flaws as well as other concerns about the condition and color of your enamel. Once in place, these restorations can provide lasting benefits. Because they can be placed in just two visits, you can start showing off your improved smile sooner than you expected!
