Lincoln Park Invisalign Dentist Helps Cosmetic Dentistry Fit Into Patients’ Lives

Written by Dr. Szurgot on Dec 1, 2015

When choosing a cosmetic dentistry treatment, you want to make sure that you pick a treatment that is going to deliver the visual results that you want, while fitting into your daily life.

Our Lincoln Park cosmetic dentists have helped hundreds of patients perfect their smiles with Invisalign—let’s learn more about this exciting treatment option to get an idea of whether it can work for you!

The purpose of Invisalign is to move the patient’s natural teeth into better alignment. Invisalign offers an alternative to traditional metal braces.

Rather than moving your teeth using metal brackets and wires, Invisalign uses clear plastic aligners to apply pressure to your teeth. You’ll wear a specific aligner for about two weeks, and then you’ll switch to a new aligner, which will move your teeth a little more.

Patients of many ages turn to Invisalign because they love:

· Want to straighten their teeth discreetly—because Invisalign aligners are made of clear plastic resin, they are practically invisible once they are in place. Throughout the treatment process you will be able to see your natural teeth through the aligners.

· The ease of maintenance that Invisalign provides—you will remove your Invisalign aligner to clean your smile; this means that you can brush, floss, and undergo professional dental cleanings just like you do normally.

· Going totally metal free!—Invisalign aligners are totally metal free, which means that there are not rough or abrasive metal pieces that can irritate your oral tissues. These smooth aligners fit comfortably and naturally.
