Invisalign® and Clear Braces
How Do Invisalign Aligners Work?
The aligners are clear plastic trays that nudge your teeth gently. You’ll get a new aligner every two weeks. At first, it will feel that it does not fit quite right, but your teeth will move in place. You will have to wear the aligner for 22 hours every day.
What Do Invisalign Treatments Cost?
Your Invisalign cost depends on the extent of your teeth’s misalignment. When you have your consultation, our dentist will evaluate your teeth before giving you the anticipated cost.
Is Invisalign Better for Adults than Clear Braces?
It depends in most cases. Invisalign aligners are practically invisible. Adults can take them out to enjoy a meal and brush their teeth, where clear braces are fixed. This makes it more difficult, but not impossible, to keep your teeth clean.
How Do Clear Braces Work to Move Teeth?
Clear braces, which generally have semi-translucent ceramic brackets, work the same way that metal braces do. The wire gets tighter, and since it is connect to each tooth by a bracket, all the teeth move.
What Do Clear Ceramic Brackets Cost?
During your orthodontic consultation at our dental office, our dentist will evaluate the degree of misalignment to give you an estimate of your cost for clear braces. Call us today to schedule your consultation.
Are Clear Braces Better than Invisalign?
It depends, if you want the most discreet way to straighten your teeth, Invisalign is your best option. Talk to one of our dentists to find a teeth straightening option that fits in your budget and works well with your lifestyle.
Metal Braces, Ceramic Braces, and Self-Ligating Brackets
How Do Know If Metal Braces Are a Good Option?
If you have severely crooked teeth, you may have to get metal braces, which are stronger than clear braces or Invisalign.
What Do Metal Braces Cost in Downtown Austin?
Metal braces are more affordable than clear braces or Invisalign. Call our office to schedule a consultation and one of our dentists will provide you with an estimate after evaluating your teeth.
How Do I Choose Between Clear or Metal Braces?
At your complimentary consultation, your dentist will talk to you about your options. He or she will help you decide, taking into account your budget and your lifestyle.
Why Should I Consider Self-Ligating Brackets?
Self-ligating brackets hold the archwire in place without elastics. Your adjustment appointments will go quicker as there are no elastics to change.
What Do Self-Ligating Brackets Cost in Downtown Austin?
Self-ligating brackets do cost more than traditional brackets. While you are having your consultation, your dentist will explain the extra cost for the brackets on metal or clear braces. Call today to get started on a new smile.
