Invisalign In Blacksburg, VA - Cosmetic Smile Center
Invisalign is an alternative to traditional orthodontic treatments. Some call it invisible braces or clear braces. Traditional orthodontics uses metal braces to adjust the smile, which can take up to five years. Invisalign, however, uses a series of clear aligners that are custom-molded to fit the patient. The invisible and clear aligner is gradually repositioned to adjust the smile to the ideal location. Results, unlike metal orthodontics, frequently take six months to a year.
The advantages of Invisalign include:
- Almost undetectable clear adjusting aligner.
- Easy to remove for eating, brushing, and flossing.
- Can whiten teeth at the same time.
- Faster Treatment Time due to no fixed metal brackets or wires to adjust so you'll spend less time visiting the doctor.
Both teens and adults are ideal candidates for Invisalign.
