How can I get a straighter smile?
If you are an older teen or adult and want a straight smile but you feel reluctant to wear brackets and wires for months on end, you are not alone! Dr. Shah has introduced Invisalign in our Ringwood, NJ dental office to make this process easier, more comfortable, and more discreet.
Invisalign is different because it eliminates the need for patients to have brackets and wires. Instead, we use clear plastic trays that place pressure on your teeth in order to move them into their ideal alignment. This works for both achieving a healthier, more attractive smile, and more comfortable smile.
Misaligned teeth can be difficult to restore. If you need a crown or filling on an overlapping tooth, for example, it is difficult to give you the most esthetic restoration because of the position of your teeth. By straightening your teeth, your fillings and crowns look better, feel better, and function better.
Of course, we know that many people just want to look great. Invisalign is effective for that too! Wearing your clear aligner trays will not be noticeable to others, even when you speak and smile, unless you tell them about it. You might! Many of our patients are excited about finally getting the smile they have always wanted!
