Grand Rapids, Kentwood, & East Grand Rapids MI
Braces can make photographs difficult. You may not want metal bars to obscure a bright smile; you may feel embarrassed about your smile. But, luckily, there is an alternative. Instead of having to wait until after braces are removed, you can now see your teeth without bars. With transparent Invisalign you can get a straighter smile without the embarrassment. In the Grand Rapids, Dr. Zwier can help you with the Invisalign smile you desire.
What is Invisalign?
Similar to metal braces, Invisalign corrects crooked teeth. The advantage of Invisalign over braces, however, is Invisalign’s transparency. Grand Rapids Patients may experience correction without the appearance of metal bars or brackets. A clear soft insert straightens and aligns your teeth. A new insert, placed every two weeks, is custom fitted to move your teeth in a new, straighter direction.
How Invisalign Works
After you opt for Invisalign, Dr. Zwier begins the Invisalign process. He makes impressions of your teeth for sizing and spacing. These impressions, scanned into a computer, are combined with your treatment plan. Invisalign aligner inserts are created based on this information. With these clear applications, patients can watch as their smile becomes straighter.
You may benefit from Invisalign if you are looking for an alternative to traditional braces. Unlike its metal counterpart, Invisalign aligners can be taken in and out while eating. You can enjoy foods without pieces sticking to metal bars. Invisalign can also be used to treat many dental problems. These problems may include:
- Crowded teeth
- Large Gaps between teeth
- Jaw problems including overbites, underbites, and deep bites.
If you are interested in Invisalign, you can schedule a consultation with East Grand Rapids Dentist, Dr. Zwier. During a consultation, he can explain more information about Invisalign and examine your teeth. If your teeth are able to see improvement with Invisalign, he can begin fitting your inserts. Dr. Zweir excepts patients from the East Grand Rapids and Kentwood areas! You can enjoy a straighter smile without metal in your mouth.
