Do you want to improve your smile? Properly aligned teeth do more than make you look fantastic, they also protect your smile from damage, and help you to eat and speak effectively. For years, orthodontics meant one thing: metal braces. To give you the smile you have always wanted without the discomfort, look and extra work that comes with braces, Dr. Brough Family & Cosmetic Dentistry offers the Invisalign® system in Layton, Utah, as a comfortable, convenient and discreet alternative. We can also provide you with other clear aligner options to suit your budget. To learn more, schedule your appointment with our doctor, Dr. Grant Brough by calling 801.773.5285.
Invisalign® is a great choice for patients who are searching for a more discreet orthodontic treatment option for straightening their smile. Rather than using metal brackets and wires like traditional braces, the Invisalign system uses a series of custom-made, computer-generated plastic aligners to straighten your teeth. Each set of aligners is designed to make small changes to the alignment of the teeth. As you switch sets of aligners about every two weeks, your teeth will gradually and gently move to their proper positions. You will also visit our office on a regular basis during treatment to make certain that your smile is progressing as planned.
In general, Invisalign can be used to treat the same orthodontic issues that are normally treated with braces. Our dentist may recommend Invisalign to correct:
- Crowded teeth
- Crooked teeth
- Gapped and spaced teeth
- Certain problems with the bite, such as an overbite, open bite, underbite, or crossbite
During your initial visit, we will determine whether you are a good candidate for Invisalign. This treatment is often a good choice for adult patients and others who are interested in a virtually invisible orthodontic treatment. In addition to being discreet, Invisalign aligners are also very comfortable because they are custom made from smooth, thin plastic. The aligners are removable as well, which allows you to easily remove them as needed to eat, brush, and floss. We welcome you to call or visit us today to learn more about Invisalign.
Clear aligners are a great option for patients who want to avoid bulky and unsightly metal braces. This orthodontic option is especially popular among teenagers and adults who are looking for virtually invisible treatments. When you visit our office for your initial consultation, our dentist will examine your mouth and discuss your smile goals with you to determine if clear aligners are the best treatment for you.
Clear aligners are made from smooth, thin plastic, and are custom-designed and computer-generated to fit your smile perfectly. Not only are they very discreet, they are also very comfortable. Your aligners are removable, allowing you to eat whatever you please as well as brush and floss with ease. You will switch to a new set of aligners every few weeks as your treatment progresses. Each new set of aligners will make small changes to the alignment of your teeth, gently guiding your teeth into the proper position to give you a straight, healthy, and beautiful smile.
As your aligners are made from clear plastic, they will need to be cleaned regularly. If you do not clean your aligners frequently, they may cause your teeth to appear yellow, gray, or stained.
