If metal braces just aren’t for you then maybe it’s time to consider getting Invisalign in Tampa.invisalign

You have been dreaming of having a straight smile for as long as you can remember. Maybe you weren’t able to get braces as a kid and now, as an adult, you feel like it’s just too late to get the smile you’ve always wanted. Not so fast! Our Tampa, FL, dentist, Dr. Robert Perez, offers a wonderful way to finally get the smile you’ve been dreaming of without having to wear metal braces.

Instead of having to wear bulky, awkward and sometimes irritating metal over your teeth, Invisalign makes it possible to sport something a lot less obvious. Instead of brackets and wires, you will wear custom-fitted clear aligners. They look similar to whitening trays but they do so much more. Our Tampa general dentist uniquely maps out each aligner before you ever get Invisalign, this way we know what teeth are shifting and just how much they need to move throughout the course of your treatment.

Invisalign is a great way to treat a variety of issues such as:

  • Spacing
  • Crowding
  • Overbites
  • Underbites
  • Open bites
  • Crossbites

If you are an older teen or adult who is dealing with these problems then Invisalign could turn out to be a great option. Why?

Invisalign aligners are completely clear, so when you wear them people won’t know right away that you have braces. This is a serious benefit to anyone in high school, college or the working world. People often worry that if they wear braces they will be teased or won’t be taken seriously. By wearing Invisalign, you can still get the smile you want but without the whole world knowing.

They are easy to care for and easily fit into your lifestyle. Braces can be a pain to brush and floss, not to mention the challenges of what you can and can’t eat while wearing them. Invisalign, on the other hand, is completely different. Since the aligners can be removed, you don’t have to worry about a restricted diet or food getting trapped between teeth. Invisalign is able to blend seamlessly into your lifestyle without changing it.

If you are ready to get Invisalign then the next step it to schedule an appointment with Impressive Smiles Tampa to find out if it’s right for you. Let’s get you a beautiful smile you’ll be proud of.
