Invisalign in Bellevue & Seattle
Invisalign clear aligners, or invisible braces, now allow you to get the straight teeth that you desire without a mouthful of metal wires and brackets. The braces that we used to know are no longer necessary for achieving a straight, beautiful smile. Bellevue cosmetic dentist Dr. Lynn Jones & Associates is a preferred provider of the Invisalign invisible braces system for a natural looking, even smile.
Is the Invisalign System Right for You?
It is very common for children or teenagers who struggle with crooked teeth to have braces in junior high or high school. We all remember as, one by one, our friends would smile with their brightly colored braces of all sorts of different color schemes. Unfortunately, not everyone is able to have his or her braces at a young age due to financial issues or various other concerns. In many cases, a person’s teeth continue to shift or become crooked later on in life – sometimes, even after already having traditional braces.
Invisible orthodontics systems like Invisalign have become extremely popular with adults looking to achieve a straighter smile, or teenagers who are not comfortable with traditional braces. We see a wide range of different patients coming in for Invisalign consultations in Bellevue. There are those who were unable to have braces at a younger age and now wish for a more discrete solution to crooked teeth, teenagers and young adults who don’t want the traditional metal braces, and even brides who are simply looking to refine their smiles before their big day.
Clear aligners are not always the best option for everyone. When you come in for your consultation with Dr. Jones, she will carefully analyze the state of your teeth and determine if Invisalign is a viable solution to help achieve your cosmetic goals. If you are a good candidate for clear aligners, you and Dr. Jones can begin achieving your new smile with your first set of Invisalign.
How Invisalign Works
Unlike the wire and bracket metal braces, the Invisalign system fits a lot like a very thin, transparent mouth guard that Dr. Jones will customize to your own unique needs. These clear aligners are hardly noticeable, and after a few days you will barely even remember that you are wearing them. The best part is: you can take them out whenever you want! That means no fidgeting with special floss or toothbrushes, and no chunks of food getting lodged in your braces whenever you eat.
You will continue regular visits with Dr. Jones throughout the process, undergoing a series of aligners that work to straighten your teeth. With each new set of aligners, you may feel mild tension or pressure for a day or two, but this will quickly fade as your teeth continue to adjust. Over time, the series of aligners will provide you with a straight, beautiful smile – just like braces, but without any of the self-consciousness or embarrassment.
