You probably think that getting braces will require you to wear an unattractive metal appliance that makes you look like an awkwardinvisalign teenager. But your dentist may be able to straighten your smile discreetly with Invisalign clear braces. Learn more about this treatment, which is available for patients at Fine Dental Arts in Bellevue, WA.

Orthodontics Straighten Your Smile
Orthodontia is the dental science that’s focused on repositioning your teeth and readjusting your bite so that it will be in an optimal position. Patients naturally want their smiles to look straight and their teeth to be very close together (but not crowded). Custom braces are created to move the teeth until they conform to a model designed by your orthodontist. 

The Invisalign Way
There are a few different types of braces that you can discuss with your Bellevue dentist. One orthodontic option that many adults prefer is Invisalign. With Invisalign you do not have to worry about having uncomfortable metal brackets permanently affixed to your teeth. Instead, you’ll just wear a plastic aligner tray each day. Your dentist prescribes a new tray every couple of weeks. Many Invisalign treatments are finished in less than a year—it depends on the unique cosmetic problems you have.

A Discreet Solution
Patients like Invisalign because it is a discreet orthodontic solution compared to metal braces. When in social and public settings, the tray can be removed and placed in a container until later. Even if you choose to keep the tray on while having a conversation it is not very visible to others. The Invisalign tray is made of a clear, polyurethane resin material that molds comfortably around your teeth.

Explore the Benefits of Invisalign
After attending a consultation with a cosmetic dentist, you may find that all you need to improve the looks of your smile is a relatively short Invisalign treatment. Call Fine Dental Arts in Bellevue, WA at 425-558-0909 to schedule a consultation with Dr. Kianoosh Behshid or Dr. Amir Emam.
