If you're like most adults, you probably had braces when you were in High School. But as you have aged, your teeth have started to shift and your smile may not be as perfect as it once was. Maybe you look at yourself in the mirror and think...not the best smile, but I don't want to go through braces again.
Well guess what? You can get that perfect smile back in just a few months and no one will know your wearing braces. It's true...if you're an adult and all you need is a little cosmetic improvement and you'd prefer not to have braces...let us introduce you to Invisalign.
Invisalign takes a modern approach to straightening teeth, using a custom-made series of aligners created for you and only you. These aligner trays are made of smooth, comfortable and virtually invisible plastic that you wear over your teeth. Wearing the aligners will gradually and gently shift your teeth into place, based on the exact movements that Dr. Hinesly plans out for you. There are no metal brackets to attach and no wires to tighten. You just pop in a new set of aligners approximately every two weeks, until your treatment is complete.
You’ll achieve a great smile with little interference in your daily life. The best part about the whole process is that most people won't even know you're straightening your teeth. A quick evaluation by Dr. Hinesly will tell if you are a candidate for this convenient treatment.
We know that many adults are eager to achieve a beautiful smile without wearing braces and that's why the Invisalign system is so great! Invisalign is an aligner system that corrects the minor imperfections in your smile in about 6 to 15 months.
