For many people, having a mouth full of metal is the way they remember their teenage years. If you wore braces when you were younger, but do not still wear a retainer, your teeth may have shifted over the years. If you look in the mirror and see crooked, widely spaced, or overlapping teeth, I, have a solution you will love. My name is Dr. Thomas Villani, and I’m a cosmetic dentist in Brighton.
For most adults, especially those in the professional world, wearing metal braces simply isn’t practical. Here at Brighton Family Dental Group, we are proud to offer another option. Invisalign is a clear, removable aligner that allows you to get the result of traditional braces, while maintaining a mature, natural appearance.
I am so confident that you will love this treatment option that I offer a free Invisalign consultation to all interested patients. After a thorough exam and consultation, I will help you decide if Invisalign is the best orthodontic treatment for your particular needs. Planning is key to seeing the results you want at the end of your treatment.
I will begin by taking x-rays and impressions of your mouth. Your aligners will be fabricated in a certified laboratory using the data I collect and the plan I create. Once the aligners are delivered to our office, you will come in for a second visit, and I’ll make sure your aligners fit comfortably. I will also answer your questions and explain how to use your aligners to get the best results. Basically, it is important to wear them as often as possible, except during meal times and to clean your teeth.
Treatment can last anywhere from 9 to 24 months, which is shorter than treatment with traditional braces. You will need a new set of aligners every few weeks as your teeth shift according to your treatment plan. My office will be happy to work with you to schedule progress checkups around your work and personal commitments.
If you are ready to fall in love with your smile again, please contact my office to schedule your free Invisalign consultation.
