Regardless of what age you are, there’s never a bad time to achieve a straighter smile. Straight and perfectly aligned teeth are healthier, look great and can cause you fewer problems down the line. What do you have to lose? Whether your dentist has told you that you could benefit from orthodontics or you feel yourself that you could, it might be a good time to visit your cosmetic dentist in Port Washington for orthodontics. But first, why visit a cosmetic dentist? Orthodontics is about aesthetics just as much as it is about functionality. By visiting your cosmetic dentist at Port Washington Dental Care, you are ensuring that your teeth look as good as possible.

We Can Treat Your Smile with Invisalign

One of the first reasons you should visit your cosmetic dentist in Port Washington for orthodontics is because we can treat your smile with Invisalign. This means we don’t have to give you a painful and uncomfortable metal braces treatment. One of the top reasons that patients avoid an orthodontic treatment is because they don’t want to walk around with their smile covered in unsightly metal braces. We don’t blame you for this. Metal braces can take years to correct your teeth. In addition, they are uncomfortable to wear, limit your diet and have other limitations. If the thought of metal braces has always deterred you away from orthodontic treatment, our cosmetic dentist can provide you with Invisalign treatment.

Invisalign treatment consists of wearing invisible plastic aligners for anywhere from 6 months to 2 years to correct your smile. You must wear the aligners for at least 22 hours per day, only to remove them for eating, brushing and drinking drinks that are not water. If this sounds doable to you, then Invisalign might be the right option for you. It’s also important to know that you must brush your teeth after eating and keep your aligners clean throughout the treatment otherwise your breath and aligners can smell gross. After two weeks, you will switch your aligners for a new set. The new set slowly shifts your teeth into their ideal position. You will also need to visit our cosmetic dentist every 6 weeks so we can check on the progress of your orthodontic treatment.

Invisalign is Comfortable

Our cosmetic dentist at Port Washington Dental Care wants what is best for you which is why we recommend Invisalign treatment to our patients. One of the top reasons we recommend it is because it is so comfortable to wear. The thin plastic is smooth and as a bonus, nearly invisible. As a result, you won’t have to worry about your cheeks, tongue or lips scraping against sharp metal brackets or wires like you would with traditional braces. In addition, since Invisalign moves your teeth in small increments, your mouth will feel less sore than it would with metal braces. With metal braces, your orthodontist typically tightens your braces every 6 weeks, giving you the next 6 weeks for your teeth to move into their new position. Invisalign moves your teeth in smaller increments every 2 weeks for less pain and actually faster results. Experience the difference with Invisalign!

Invisalign is Convenient

Another reason that you should visit your cosmetic dentist for orthodontics is that we also understand how important convenience is. With Invisalign treatment, you don’t need to change your diet or your confidence when you smile. Since the aligners are removable, you can eat anything during your treatment and even brush your teeth and floss with no trouble. Invisalign offers you a level of convenience that you can’t find with traditional braces. In addition, if you have a special occasion coming up or a photoshoot, feel free to remove your aligners for a small amount of time to look picture perfect! Being able to remove your aligners at any moment makes the entire orthodontic treatment process much easier.

Your Smile Will Look Great

Not only will your teeth look amazing at the end of your treatment, but they will look great during the treatment thanks to the invisible aligners. You can continue smiling with your mouth open and having a conversation without worrying that anyone notices your braces. Since Invisalign is so discreet, it’s the perfect treatment for those who want a more beautiful smile. You never have to go a day without feeling confident in your smile.

Your Cosmetic Dentist Also Offers Different Options

The last reason you should visit your cosmetic dentist for orthodontics in Port Washington is that you might not need orthodontic treatment to achieve your results. There are a few different cosmetic dentistry treatments out there that can help you perfect your smile without going through the hassles of wearing braces for months at a time. For example, porcelain veneers can be placed over your teeth to hide minor imperfections like gaps, crowded teeth, and even slight crookedness. Dental bonding can also be used to hide gaps or even teeth that are unsymmetrical. Discuss your likes and dislikes about your smile with our cosmetic dentist to find out if orthodontic treatment is even necessary.
