Discover your dream smile with the help of Invisalign.

Is your crooked smile keeping you from smiling for the camera? Do you loathe selfies and group photos with friends because you have to hide your smile all the time? It’s time to stop hiding, whether from the camera or those around you, and our Clarks Summit, PA, dentists Dr. Jeffrey Bell, Dr. Dale Collins and Dr. Amy Cravath have the most subtle and discreet way to get that straighter smile: Invisalign. Invisalign has been around for years now, and it’s the completely clear way to fix your crooked smile.

What is Invisalign?

Invisalign is a series of clear plastic aligners that look similar to the whitening trays you may see with commercial teeth whitening kits. These aligners are custom-made to fit over your teeth (you can get aligners for both the top and bottom rows) to help fix misaligned and crooked teeth.

How does Invisalign work?

These clear braces might not look like the traditional braces you remember from your past; however, they are just as effective at moving teeth back into their proper position. Just by wearing these aligners, your teeth will receive the proper pressure and controlled force needed to slowly shift teeth. Invisalign easily controls both the timing and the force of tooth movement, and each Invisalign aligner moves teeth only a certain amount as planned out by our Clarks Summit, PA, dental team.

How long does Invisalign treatment last?

The length of treatment will depend on the severity of the patient’s smile; however, most Invisalign treatments only take about one year for adult wearers. However, teens may need to wear their braces longer than adult patients. Our dentists can give you a better idea of how long treatment will take when you come in for an evaluation.

What are the advantages of choosing Invisalign?

The main advantage is that you can straighten teeth without anyone noticing since each aligner is clear. Furthermore, the aligners are removable so you don’t have to change your diet like you would with traditional metal braces. This means you can still enjoy all of your favorite foods while also straightening your teeth. Just remember to brush your teeth and rinse your aligners before putting them back in.

Plus your oral care regime won’t have to change either since you can remove your braces prior to brushing and flossing. Invisalign easily fits into your lifestyle, so you won’t find yourself having to change your daily routine much during your orthodontic treatment.
