Change Your Smile The Clear & Easy Way

Posted on April 26th, 2018

You aren’t happy with your smile.

In truth, you haven’t been happy with your teeth for several years. Now, however, you have the means and the opportunity to do something about it.

You can have the straight, beautiful smile that you’ve been dreaming about for years.

And you may not need braces to make that happen.

You could use Invisalign® aligners instead. You can get them at Atlanta West Dentistry. Our own Dr. Cameron Watson is an Invisalign preferred provider, which speaks to her experience and expertise with this system.

To see what “invisible braces” could do for you, schedule a consultation at our Marietta, GA dentist office soon. Call (770) 941-6979 today!


A Better Option for Adults

Orthodontic care is possible no matter how old you are. Based on our experience, however, braces for adults are not particularly popular.

Many adults want straighter smiles, but few are willing to wear metal brackets and wires on their teeth for years at a time. Many adults are hesitant to go to a job interview, meet with a client, or (on a personal level) attend a party or go on a date with braces on their teeth.

We wish that wasn’t the case because we know how beneficial braces can be.

It’s also why we are so happy that we can offer Invisalign as an alternative. The clear aligners really are practically invisible. Many patients who have used them have told us that they were surprised by how few people ever noticed their aligners during their treatment.

Can you imagine that? You could straighten your teeth without calling attention to your treatment.

There’s never been a better time for you to do something about your smile than today. And our team at Atlanta West Dentistry would be happy to help.


What Invisalign Can Do

Invisalign is an excellent option for patients with mild to moderate alignment problems, and most adults who are interested in straighter teeth fall into those categories.

Like braces, Invisalign can correct:

  • Overbites
  • Underbites
  • Crossbites
  • Open bites
  • Gaps between teeth
  • Crowded teeth
  • Crooked teeth

If you have one or more of these problems, you owe it to yourself to find out what Invisalign could do for you.

You can even get a preview of what your new smile could look like. As part of the process, we make a digital scan of your smile. This data is used to design a series of aligners custom-made for your teeth.

That data also can be fed into the Invisalign Outcome Simulator. With this technology, we can show you how different your smile could look by the end of your treatment.


Benefits Over Braces

Braces are effective, but they do create some inconveniences while you have them.

As we alluded to earlier, people can’t exactly hide the fact that they have brackets and wires on their teeth. Your Invisalign aligners will blend in with your teeth making them practically invisible while you are wearing them. This can help you feel more confident about wearing them in personal and professional settings.

Braces also require a different level of care. You need to avoid hard, crunchy, and chewy foods since they can cause brackets to come off or cause wires to bend or break. You’ll also have to be very deliberate about cleaning up after you eat. You don’t want to leave food stuck in your braces.

You can eat anything you want with Invisalign. You simply take your aligner out before you eat. Then, you clean your teeth and your aligner before putting it back in when you are finished with your meal.

And we haven’t mentioned the difference in comfort. Wearing braces can be painful. You will feel it each time your braces are adjusted. Some people also find that the brackets and wires can irritate the soft tissues inside their mouths.

You will feel some gentle pressure on your teeth each time you replace an Invisalign aligner for the next one. (That’s how you know your teeth are moving.) The aligners themselves are made of smooth plastic, so there aren’t any edges to cause irritation.
