Straight teeth are a big part of having a beautiful smile. Better alignment means a better appearance, better function, and more confidence. Your Laredo TX dental office can give you a great smile using modern orthodontic appliances.
Forget about the old way of straightening teeth. Today we can straighten your teeth without fixed metal appliances like brackets and wires. ClearCorrect is an American-made product that uses clear, removable aligners to gradually move the teeth into a more appropriate position.
Take a quick glance at this picture below. These are a set of traditional braces. You notice the metal brackets and wires straight away. Traditional braces work wonders for patients struggling with major bites issues or alignment problems, but they are hardly the only option.
If you have mildly crooked teeth, you might be a candidate for ClearCorrect. Below is a picture of a patient inserting a ClearCorrect tray. You’ll notice that the tray is virtually invisible. Once the tray is on the teeth, no one can tell that you’re wearing an orthodontic appliance — perhaps not even your closest friends and family members.
ClearCorrect treatment takes about 12 to 18 months to complete. You’ll wear the appliance for 20 hours a day, only removing it for eating and cleaning. If you’re ready to fix those crooked teeth, contact us today.
