You know crooked and crowded teeth ruin your smile, but you are not ready to go through the hassle of wearing bulky metal braces. At Hillside Dental in Las Vegas, Nevada, we understand your quest to straighten your smile discreetly and comfortably. For this reason, we offer Invisalign clear braces to fix your crooked teeth without anyone noticing.
This orthodontic treatment uses custom-made, clear trays instead of wires and brackets used in traditional braces. When you visit our practice for Invisalign treatment, Dr. Christopher Lim takes digital scans of your mouth and sends the images to a dental lab to create your custom trays.
When your aligners are ready, Dr. Lim ensures that they fit correctly and advises you on using and cleaning them. However, remember that you will need a new set of trays every two weeks to align your teeth closer to a straighter smile.
You need to wear your clear braces between 20 and 22 hours a day for the next 12 to 18 months for optimal results. After your treatment, Dr. Lim may advise you to wear retainers to ensure that your teeth don’t shift from their new position.
Are you ready to renew your smile with Invisalign treatment? The treatment will cost you between $3,000 and $7,000. The cost depends on the complexity of your procedure, the dentist’s experience, your location, and retainers’ aftercare.
Fortunately, most insurance plans can cover a percentage of your Invisalign treatment cost, lessening your financial burden.
If you find traditional braces too cumbersome for you, we offer Invisalign clear braces that yield the benefits below:
They are minimally invisible — they don’t show up while smiling or talking.
They are comfortable
Clear aligners are effective in fixing bite misalignment, teeth crowding, and crooked teeth.
Invisalign aligners are removable, meaning you can enjoy your favorite foods without the fear of food getting stuck on your teeth. Besides, the retractable nature of clear braces optimizes your oral health as you can remove them to clean and floss your teeth.
If you have crooked teeth, you don’t have to wear uncomfortable metal braces to straighten your smile. Instead, call 702-666-8584 to book an appointment with Hillside Dental. Our Invisalign dentist, Dr. Christopher Lim, will align your teeth discreetly and comfortably with clear braces.
