Invisalign Clear Braces

Solution for Straight Teeth

Invisalign dentist Chesterfield and Town and Country MO
Invisalign braces are sets of clear aligners, or clear braces, that are placed over your teeth like retainers. Each set of Invisalign aligners is custom-made just for you. Invisalign clear braces achieve the same great results as traditional braces, creating a set of beautiful straight teeth.

How Invisalign Works

The Invisalign® system repositions the teeth using a series of clear braces that are plastic trays. The trays are virtually invisible and comfortable, so you can wear them to social occasions with confidence. No one will know you’re wearing them unless you tell them.

These clear braces are also removable! You can still enjoy all your favorite foods and brush and floss normally to keep your teeth and gums healthy.

The Invisalign Process

First you’ll meet with our general dentistry team to evaluate your teeth. We will mold your teeth and then create a custom clear braces tray to begin your tray series. You’ll visit us at our St. Louis office every month or two to check your progression and to get your next set of aligners. Average treatment time for Invisalign clear braces is only 6–18 months.

Invisalign vs. Metal Braces

    clear braces for straight teeth in Chesterfield and Town and Country

  • Easier Care | Invisalign clear braces are removable, so you don’t need to worry about flossing and brushing between wires. Simply remove your Invisalign, and you’ll be able to floss and brush with ease.
  • Increased Comfort | Metal brackets that rub against the inner lips can be uncomfortable. Sharp wires and broken brackets are other issues that come with traditional braces. For most, Invisalign is more comfortable and easier to wear.
  • A Subtle Approach to Straight Teeth | Because Invisalign is virtually invisible, most people won’t notice you’re wearing orthodontia.This can be especially important for adults who decide to get braces. The only change you will see is a good one―beautiful, straight teeth.

These advantages make Invisalign an attractive alternative to metal braces. Invisalign gives you the opportunity to make your dental care fit into your lifestyle instead of rearranging your life to accommodate your treatment.
