How Clear Aligners Can Improve The Symmetry Of Your Smile

Prairie Village, KS, dentist offers clear aligners

Having crooked teeth may make you feel like you cannot show off your pearly whites. If you are tired of feeling self-conscious of your grin, Dr. Browne’s team in Prairie Village, KS, may be able to help. We offer a discreet treatment method that can align your teeth in less time than traditional treatments.

What To Expect During Your Consultation

Before beginning this process, you will need to visit your dentist to ensure this method will be helpful for you. This method offers an advantage over companies that send you your trays home. Your dentist will be able to monitor your progress and make changes to the treatment if necessary. They will examine your oral cavity and assess the severity of your misalignment. Our clear aligners target the visible teeth that show in your smile. If you have more serious problems that may affect your oral health, speech, or chewing ability, your dentist may recommend an alternative orthodontic method instead. However, many patients are able to go through with this patient to correct their minor concerns. An impression will be taken of your oral cavity to create the series of trays that will be used. Your dentist will use X-ray or intraoral camera images to plan out the length of treatment.

Achieve A Straighter Smile In Less Time

Traditional orthodontic methods, like braces or Invisalign, can take anywhere from one to three years to complete. This is because they must move each tooth into the correct position, even the back ones that you cannot see. Our treatment plan can achieve this in a year or less, leaving you with a symmetrical grin faster. We are able to do this by targeting the teeth that are most visible instead of aligning all of your pearly whites. If you begin your treatment this spring, you may be able to see a significant change by the wintertime. This is a great solution for patients who have important events coming up at the end of the year.

Starting Your Treatment

Once you receive your trays, your dentist can instruct you on how to wear and care for them. You will need to keep them in for the majority of the day, including when you sleep. You can remove them when eating, drinking, and doing your oral hygiene routine. Patients may find these more comfortable than braces because there are no irritating brackets and wires. Others will not be able to notice that you are wearing the aligners until they see your straighter smile.
