Invisalign and ClearCorrect are both clear teeth aligners that are virtually invisible solutions to straighten your teeth. Our dentist will use innovative software to map out the path to your perfect smile. A series of clear aligners will then be made for you in a USA-based dental laboratory that will slowly move your teeth into an ideal position. You can expect treatment to take between one and two years, with minimal disruption to your life.
At your consultation, our dentist will evaluate your suitability for Invisalign and ClearCorrect and give you an expert recommendation on which option to choose. We can also advise on alternative treatment options is we believe that neither will meet your specific needs.
After you have finished your orthodontic treatment, you will need to protect the shape of your new smile with a well-fitted retainer. Our dentist will fit you with a retainer which you will wear to maintain your beautiful smile.
Orthodontic treatment is typically only started after all of the patients' adult teeth have begun to erupt. You will be considered a candidate for orthodontics if you have teeth that are poorly aligned, crowded, crooked or if you need your bite to be corrected.
Adults of any age can begin orthodontic treatment, so if you have always dreamed of having perfectly straight teeth but have put off seeking help because you think you are past the age for it get in touch with us at Smile For Life. We can help you to achieve that beautiful straight smile.
Conventional braces use small metal brackets that are bonded to each tooth and joined with wires to gradually shift your teeth into a better position. This is achieved by your dentist tightening the wires over time, constantly applying pressure to the teeth to move them. With braces, you have to be very careful with your dental hygiene and avoiding damage to your braces from certain foods.
Clear aligners are a much more comfortable and more discreet option to correct your teeth. The aligner is transparent and, best of all, removable. It is advised that you wear your aligners for at least 22 hours a day, but this means that you may remove it to eat and clean your teeth. Treatment with clear aligners is also typically a lot faster than braces.
