If you would like to straighten your teeth, improve your look, and promote proper function, Dr. Pape and our other Isle Smile dentists choose to help you with Invisalign® in Key West, Florida.
While dental veneers are a great option for enhancing the appearance of your smile, they only cover the imperfections in your teeth, rather than correct them. This means that your existing periodontal problems could remain, including spacing, overbite, underbite, and crowding issues. Invisalign® is virtually invisible and it uses a series of custom-made, removable aligning trays that are made of clear plastic. The aligners will gradually shift and transform your smile without the need for braces or wires. Every two weeks, you will use the new aligner (the next one in the series) to continue the progression of your treatment. Invisalign® is very beneficial because there are no sharp brackets or wires cutting or bruising the inside of your mouth and you can continue brushing and flossing your teeth normally. This ability to remove the aligners means you can leave them out for special occasions or for sporting activities. Our team at Isle Smile will use pictures, impressions, and X-rays to create a 3D image of your teeth and to create your successful aligning trays.
Straightening your smile to improve your overall health and appearance is an important decision that should not be taken lightly. If you would like to know if braces or Invisalign® is the best choice for you or your teenager, please feel free to talk to your dentists in Key West, Florida.
