Invisible Braces

If you need a small cosmetic improvement to achieve a great smile, invisible braces may be a great option for you. The nearly invisible braces use a simple rotation of three to fives sets of trays to achieve a final, beautiful smile.

A quick evaluation allows Dr. Smith, a dentist in Anderson and Fishers, to determine if invisible braces will achieve your cosmetic dental goals.

Here’s How Orthodontics and Braces Work

If dentist Dr. Smith determines you are a candidate for the invisible braces system, an impression is taken of the teeth and sent to a lab where three sets of of tray-styled invisible braces are produced color coded and custom-made for you.

Invisible brances are trays made of lightweight plastic with an impression of your teeth in the shape of arches. Wear each appliance in the series of three 6 to 8 weeks without any speech impediments.

Convenience of Invisible Braces
Red, White and Blue is the simple to follow 3 tray process. Dr. Garry Smith will give you more explicit directions on the length to use each tray.

Each invisible aligner is clearly marked with color-coded dots for easy identification. Each one works to coax the teeth in small incremental movements to get you progressively closer to a new smile. In some cases, Dr. Smith may slim the front teeth to allow for tooth movement.

When you begin wearing the invisible braces to align teeth, some minor discomfort is normal like an aching, but quickly the teeth adjust and stabilize in their new positions.

Dr. Garry Smith, an Anderson dentist also in Fishers, looks forward to reviewing your goals for teeth alignment and is able to tell you if your movement requirements qualify for invisible braces.
