If you’ve hesitated to straighten your teeth because the idea of metal braces is unappealing, newer techniques are available to perfect your pearly whites. At Central Avenue Dental, you can choose between two nearly invisible alternatives. Both SureSmile® and Invisalign® are more comfortable options for treating gapped and widely spaced teeth, crooked teeth, or crowded teeth. They’re also a potential alternative for some tweens and teens with malocclusion, overbite, or underbite. Clear aligners are the ideal alternative for busy professionals who don’t want orthodontics to hinder their lifestyle. Our cosmetic dentist Dr. Daniel G. Miller welcomes you to schedule your consultation for clear aligners in Charlotte, NC today!
Clear aligners are as reliable and predictable a method of straightening teeth as traditional braces. Rather than uncomfortable and unsightly wires, brackets, and rubber bands, you’ll wear a series of customized, comfortable plastic trays to help you achieve your dream smile. Unlike metal braces that require an evolving plan and frequent adjustments to wires and brackets, clear aligners enable your teeth to move along a more direct path to target positions.
Every step of your smile transformation is orchestrated with precision. At your first SureSmile® visit, Dr. Daniel G. Miller takes a quick digital scan of your mouth using the Primescan™ intraoral scanner. The digital scans coupled with specialized software enable Dr. Daniel G. Miller to develop the optimal treatment plan for you at a lower cost. About two weeks later, you’ll receive your customized trays with instructions on how to wear them. After the initial placement, you’ll return every few months to our dental office in Charlotte, NC so we can make sure your teeth are straightening properly. You’ll wear your aligners for up to 22 hours daily, but they can be easily removed for eating, drinking, and flossing. Clear aligners are covered by many dental insurance plans and we offer financing.
Clear aligners are an ideal solution for most patients with crooked teeth. If you have more complex problems with your bite or jaw, clear aligners may not be a straightening solution for you. Only a dentist or orthodontist certified in SureSmile or Invisalign like Dr. Daniel G. Miller is qualified to treat patients with clear aligners. Dr. Daniel G. Miller has years of experience helping patients fix crooked teeth and the trained eye to determine if clear aligners or conventional braces are the best method for you. If we determine you’re a candidate for clear aligners, you’ll enjoy the many benefits of this discreet treatment for perfecting your pearly whites!
