Cape Vista Dental wants to help your smile to really reach its ultimate potential, and we don’t just mean looking great. Misaligned bites and crooked teeth can cause unnecessary difficulty in everyday life.

That’s where Invisalign comes in. We’re excited to offer you this great alignment system. After we’re done telling you all about it, we’re pretty sure you will be, too.

What Is Invisalign?

Invisalign, just as it sounds, is a nearly invisible alignment system for straightening your smile. We say nearly invisible because it really, truly is. The clear medical polymers used to create the aligners blend right in to your smile so effectively that patients may just forget they’re even there.

With traditional braces, wires are tightened to exert pressure on your teeth in certain areas, which make them shift to the desired location. Invisalign works in the same way, just without the wires.

Invisalign clear braces will be shaped to fit your teeth with precision. While worn, the shape of the aligner itself will exert a gentle pressure on your teeth. With each new aligner in the series, the pressure will shift more and more until your teeth are in their proper places.

What Are the Benefits to Invisalign?

Invisalign is a great alternative to traditional wire braces.

The thing is that traditional braces do a great job and are effective at what they do. They just aren’t the right choice for everyone. With Invisalign, you can still get the treatment you need with the flexibility and comfort you deserve.

Just a few of the reasons to choose Invisalign are listed below.

  • Invisalign is comfortable. There are no wires or sharp edges at all.
  • The clear aligners are completely removable. This makes them convenient for activities such as sporting events, music performances, or public speeches.
  • The removability also makes both the aligners and your teeth easy to keep clean.
  • Invisalign is fast. On average, it can have your teeth where they need to be in about a year.
  • No adjustments needed. When it’s time for the next step, simply slip out one aligner and replace it with the next one in the series.
  • Invisalign aligners are custom-crafted to fit your mouth perfectly.
