Making The Decision To Use Clear Aligners

It can be hard to commit to treatment for your uneven smile when you think that commitment will involve metal braces. The results that braces provide can have a strong appeal, but many worry about what their daily experience will be like while they are in place. At our Omaha, NE dentist’s office, we do provide an alternative to this treatment approach. A patient who chooses to fix their teeth with clear aligners can see desirable results, as they can come away from care with a smile that is uniform and free of awkward gaps and overlaps. They can also feel better about their daily experience with care, as it will come from appliances that are hard to see as well as easily removed.

Should You Look At Your Options For Treating Malocclusion?

You can make the choice to take on malocclusion (poor teeth spacing) without committing to having metal braces fitted to your teeth. Traditional braces that use brackets and wires can produce welcome results, but they can also have a conspicuous effect on how you look. Another concern is that they can be uncomfortable because they interfere with your daily life and require manual adjustments over the course of your treatment. Clear aligners let you take a different approach to care, one that relies on appliances that are both easily removed and difficult to see whenever you smile and speak.

Beginning Corrective Work That Relies On Clear Aligners

Taking care of your smile with custom clear aligners means taking on problems with a set of appliances that are custom-made for your smile. The right aligners are not just sized for your teeth, they are made to provide the gradual movements that you need. As you continue to make these changes, you can see gradual improvements that help you raise your confidence in the way you look. Keeping your designated aligner in place is important on a daily basis, but you can be glad to know that you are free to remove yours whenever you need to eat or clean your teeth.

What Are Your Other Options For Treating Problems With Poor Teeth Spacing?

There are times when patients who have less severe spacing problems can explore cosmetic dental work instead of services that move teeth. We may be able to hide gaps or overlaps between your teeth with a set of porcelain veneers. These restorations are placed on the front surfaces of teeth so that they can hide these and other kinds of issues that have hurt the way you look.
