As an adult or older active teen, you may want to enjoy a straighter smile. But at the same time you may want to avoid the look and feel of braces, the extra dental visits needed to adjust braces and the restrictions that come with your favorite foods. At Perfect Smiles, our dentists and team are providers for Invisalign clear aligners in Chicago, Illinois. This treatment option is comfortable, will not limit your meal choices and is almost impossible for others to see.
What is Involved?
The first step will be to take digital impressions of your smile. These impressions will then be sent to a lab where your aligners will be made. These aligners are made of a patented clear plastic material that fits closely against your teeth and are practically invisible when you are wearing them.
How Does Invisalign Work?
You will wear each set of aligners for an average of two weeks before switching to the next set. Your teeth are moved vertically and horizontally, and in some cases, they are even rotated into their proper positions. You will remove your aligners to clean them, for meals, and for brushing and flossing your teeth.
