If you have a perfect smile, you hear about it. People can’t seem to help but remark on your beautiful smile. Sadly, the opposite is not true. No one will compliment you on your teeth if they are crooked and uneven. Even when you look in the mirror, you probably notice just how misaligned your teeth are. Your top-notch Jeffersonville, Indiana dentist have a solution that will help get your smile noticed in a good way: Invisalign or ClearCorrect orthodontic treatments.
You Don’t Have To Wear Metal Braces
If you have a crooked, uneven smile, you need orthodontics. That’s the only way to move your teeth to where they belong. Metal and wire braces are the standard treatment because they work well. However, your trusted Jeffersonville, Indiana dentist have two alternatives for you: ClearCorrect and Invisalign. Both are almost invisible when worn. You can get the orthodontic care you need without looking immature or displaying your treatment to everyone.
The Invisalign and ClearCorrect Process
Both treatments use the same general principle. They consist of clear plastic trays similar to mouthpieces. You wear them over your teeth but can take them out at any time. (However, you need to leave them in your most for most of the day and night. Just take them out to eat, clean, and put right back in.) Each tray is shaped to gently move your teeth a little bit. After a few weeks, you wear a new tray with a different shape that picks up where the old tray left off. Invisalign and ClearCorrect effectively move teeth just like braces do.
Invisalign v. ClearCorrect
There are a few differences between Invisalign and ClearCorrect:
- Invisalign was in use for a decade before ClearCorrect came around.
- ClearCorrect is made in the USA, whereas Invisalign is made outside of the country.
- ClearCorrect is normally more affordable.
- Invisalign trays are made at the start of treatment, whereas ClearCorrect aligners can be made as you go.
However, they have a lot more in common. Both are made to fit comfortably over your teeth. They gently guide your teeth to a new, better position in your smile. Because they are both made with clear plastic, they are almost impossible to notice when worn.
Clear Braces Mean Less Treatment Time
Traditional metal and wire braces usually have to be worn for two to three years before the treatment is finished. Invisalign and ClearCorrect are usually worn for only six months to one year. That’s a lot shorter! Of course, your particular case might make things shorter or longer. For example, moving just a few teeth takes less time than readjusting most of them.
