Your smile sets the tone for every first impression that you make. With a great smile, people will remember you. With a bad smile, well, the results aren’t quite what you’d like.

One of the most common complaints we hear about a smile is how great it’d be to have straight teeth. Most adults are rightfully hesitant to get adult braces – working in a professional setting makes that idea seem impossible. Adults think they’ll have to keep their crooked smile.

However, that’s not true. Thanks to some major advances in dental technology, we can now offer Invisalign® in Boston. It’s the orthodontic treatment that’s changing how adults view teeth straightening procedures.

What Is Invisalign®?

Invisalign is a way to straighten your teeth without the traditional bulky brackets and uncomfortable wires normally used in orthodontics. Instead of wires and chunks of metal, Invisalign uses a series of clear, plastic retainers that gradually shift your teeth into place. You’ll usually spend less time with Invisalign aligners than you would with traditional braces. The best part is that the aligners are clear making it difficult for others to notice you’re wearing them!

How Does Invisalign® Work?

You’ll come into our Boston dentist’s office where we’ll take a mold of your teeth. Based on the mold, Invisalign creates a series of plastic aligners that move your teeth into place over months. You wear each pair for two weeks, discarding the previous pair until you run out of aligners. After your last pair, you’re done! Your teeth are straight without wires and metal in your mouth.

Invisalign® does require some vigilance on your part. You’ll need to wear your aligners for at least 22 hours a day, ensure that you brush your teeth after every meal, and keep your aligners clean. Failure to keep up with these basic oral hygiene tips can result in cavities, infections, and other tooth decay issues as you might expect.

If you’re ready to get that smile you want, contact us today to see if Invisalign® in Boston is a service that can change your life.
