Invisalign Clear Braces – Clearly Correct Your Smile

July 9, 2015

For nearly 20 years, Invisalign clear braces have been the trusted brand for discreet tooth alignment. Whether you’re an adult who can finally afford bite correction or a young person who doesn’t want the embarrassment of metal braces, Invisalign can help you straighten your teeth without impacting your confidence. In Framingham, MA, Dr. Marianna Gaitsgory of Framingham Premier Dental provides outstanding Invisalign treatment to invisibly perfect your smile.

Invisalign vs Traditional Alignment

Traditional braces use tension between your teeth to shift your bite into alignment. Using a system of brackets and wires, the teeth are slowly shifted overtime. This method works fairly well for adolescents and teens because their teeth are still developing and shifting. The older you are the more your teeth fuse with your jawbone, and become more difficult to move. Adults who choose to have traditional braces often experience a great deal more pain than young adults because of the added pressure are their teeth. Additionally, there’s the embarrassment factor. You may not be in high school anymore, but it’s still difficult for people to take you seriously when you’re smiling with a mouth full of metal. At Framingham Premier Dental, we think you should be able to keep your confidence while you perfect your smile.

Invisalign has been the clear choice in discreet dental alignment for nearly 20 years. Unlike traditional braces, Invisalign can help reduce the pain associated with adult dental alignment, are not as noticeable as traditional braces, and have a less significant impact on your lifestyle. Invisalign straightens your bite using a series clear, plastic alignment trays. The trays are worn for about two weeks, and they exert pressure on the teeth to gently shift them into places. Because Invisalign doesn’t rely on resistance from surrounding teeth to pull a tooth into alignment, patients often experience less pain. Because the trays are clear and removable, it’s easy to straighten your smile without attracting unwanted attention. On most days, your trays are hardly noticeable, but if you are taking photos or have an important event, you can take your alignment trays out for increased discretion. Finally, Invisalign alignment plans usually take about a year, and require less than half the number of dental office visits that regular braces do. This means you don’t have to take as much time out of your schedule to achieve a beautiful smile.

What Are Porcelain Veneers?

Porcelain veneers are actually just thin custom shells that can cover the front of a tooth to instantly correct cosmetic imperfections.

How Are Porcelain Veneers Applied?

  • The first step is to prepare your tooth for porcelain veneer This can involve polishing the tooth and removing small amounts of tooth structure. The amount removed is dependent on the amount of space needed for the new veneer; however, the goal is always to remove a minimal amount of natural tooth structure.
  • After your teeth have been prepared, impressions are taken. This information is then sent to a dental lab, for the custom fabrication of your new porcelain veneers. In the intervening time, you will need to wear temporary veneers to protect your teeth.
  • Once your new veneers have been fabricated, Gaitsgory will securely bond them to your teeth. Your prepared teeth and veneers will be etched to create tiny surface pores. Translucent cement will then be applied to form precise micromechanical attachments that allow your teeth and porcelain veneers to function as one complete unit.
