Are Invisible Braces Right for You?

November 21, 2023

If you've been thinking about straightening your teeth, we at Tveten Dental Care want to ensure you get the most out of your dental treatment plan. You can choose between metal and invisible braces once you understand the differences between the two.

Why Get Your Teeth Straightened?

You may be wondering about the best braces available at the right orthodontist near you. We have provided you with important information that you need to know so you can make informed decisions for yourself.

Getting a straighter set of teeth means much more than enjoying a more beautiful smile. Teeth that are more aligned are simpler to maintain, reducing the likelihood of cavities and decay. Additionally, they enhance your bite and contribute to improved jaw alignment.

Please call our dentist in Wenatchee, WA, for the best invisible braces near you.

Invisible Versus Metal Braces: What Are the Differences?

Both metal and Invisalign® braces help straighten teeth. So why are they different from one another? For any concerns or doubts about the right braces for you, contact Tveten Dental Care for more information.

Here's a closer look at the basic differences between metal and invisible braces.

Metal Braces

Metal braces are glued onto the tooth enamel and fitted with the help of wires and brackets. The wires are often the same color as tooth enamel to make them appear more discreet.

They are worn for at least two years and cannot be removed and re-inserted (unlike invisible braces). Metal braces are usually recommended for more complex orthodontic issues.

Invisible braces

Invisible braces take about 12-18 months to straighten teeth, and they can be removed and replaced during meals. They are much more aesthetic compared to metal braces and work discreetly to shift your teeth into position.

The dentist will examine the progress during the appointment and provide the next set of aligners in the sequence. The number of aligners required and the duration of treatment in terms of months will depend on the extent of straightening required.

We offer invisible braces for adults as well as children. Please contact us for invisible braces in Wenatchee, WA.
