Metal-Free Orthodontics with Invisalign
If you need orthodontic treatment but a mouth full of metal doesn’t appeal to you, consider Invisalign. This state-of-the-art treatment offers a discreet and effective way to improve the appearance of crooked, crowded, or gapped teeth and to correct bite misalignments.
Residents of St. Augustine FL rely on Dr. Woody Domingoes and Dr. Maria Valdes-Domingoes at Anastasia Dental Associates for top-notch dental care. Our doctors recommend Invisalign for adults who want healthier, more attractive smiles without the disadvantages of metal braces.
How does Invisalign work?
Traditional braces use metal brackets and wires to coax teeth into their ideal arrangement. Invisalign gets rid of the metal and employs BPA-free acrylic aligners to gently realign teeth. A series of custom-made aligners lets you enjoy steady progression toward your goal of a great smile.
Leading-edge technology enables our Invisalign dentists to scan your smile and create a 3D model online. You and the doctor can fine-tune your treatment plan to design the smile you deserve. Our Invisalign lab uses this computer model to craft your individual series of aligners. You’ll wear each set of aligners for two weeks, then move on to the next set in your series.
Besides no metal, what other benefits does Invisalign offer?
The aligners are clear to deliver an unobtrusive appearance. This can boost your confidence during treatment. Because the aligners are removable, you don’t have to avoid the foods you love. Just take your aligners out to eat a snack or a meal. Keeping your teeth and your aligners clean is easy, too.
Invisalign works fast. Treatment time can range from 6 to 15 months, depending on your individual needs. Lots of St. Augustine Invisalign patients complete treatment in about a year.
The aligners are comfortable, too. They fit gently, yet snugly, over teeth to encourage tooth movement. And because there’s no metal, they won’t irritate your mouth the way traditional braces can.
