Having crooked teeth can lead to all kinds of issues, from low self-esteem to oral health and hygiene problems. As we get older, we're often reluctant to take the drastic step of wearing braces for several years to correct the problem. Fortunately, there's Invisalign - a tooth-alignment system that's virtually non-detectable and is suitable for both teens and adults. At Amherst Dentistry, our friendly and caring team of professionals provides Invisalign to people in the Western New York area as part of our commitment to offering the very best in dental care. We are the Invisalign dentist to trust to fix your teeth.
Invisalign is an alternative system of tooth alignment that doesn't rely on obtrusive metal and ceramic fixtures. Instead, this system uses clear plastic mouth trays, customized to fit a patient's teeth and mouth. The trays are designed using sophisticated dental imaging equipment and, for most Invisalign patients, their personal Invisalign treament is completed within a year.
There are many advantages to having Invisalign clear aligners as opposed to traditional braces. For one thing, you will hardly notice our clear aligners. Instead of having those metal braces across your mouth, we can provide a plastic aligner that is nearly impossible to see. Also, you won’t have to go through the invasive procedure of having braces bonded or cemented to your teeth. In fact, our clear, plastic aligners are removable. You can take them out and put them back in at your convenience. All this provides you with a better, more discreet look without any discomfort.
