If you’re an adult who longs for a straighter smile, Invisalign clear braces might be right for you. Invisalign lets you correct your bite and get straighter teeth without having to bear the burden of having a mouth full of metal.

Our Springfield, MO dentists at White Smiles Family Dental can fit you for Invisalign trays and get you started on a path to a straighter, healthier smile! 

What Is Invisalign?

Invisalign is an orthodontic treatment that gradually pushes and pulls your teeth into proper alignment. With Invisalign, you wear plastic trays that fit snugly over your teeth. You can remove these aligner trays to eat and clean your teeth. 

Think of Invisalign as clear, removable braces. Invisalign serves as an alternative to regular metal braces for patients who want a more subtle, attractive way to straighten their teeth. 

Why Would I Want Invisalign?

Once we reach adulthood, we tend to care more about our appearance and feel more self-conscious about our smiles. While our younger children might not have a problem with silver brackets and colorful rubber bands on their teeth, most of us would. 

Traditional braces aren’t always the best choice for those of us with careers or social commitments, but Invisalign in Springfield, MO provides a way to straighten your teeth while still enjoying your life as usual.

The main advantages of Invisalign are that your aligners are clear and removable. When you wear Invisalign, it’s not apparent to everyone around you—which means you don’t have to be afraid of judgments from other people. 

When Can I Start My Invisalign Treatment? 

If you’re a good candidate for Invisalign in Springfield, MO, our dentists can start working with you right away. We will first need to get molds and impressions of your teeth so that we can create your customized trays. 

Then, you will wear your aligners for at least 22 hours each day and visit our dental office periodically for monitoring and adjustments.
