How can I straighten my teeth without metal braces?

If you’re an adult and you want to correct crooked or crowded teeth, you have options. Using invisible braces at our Chesapeake, VA dental office, we can address these limited alignment issues without the need for metal braces.

At Bennett A.Thomas, DDS and Associates, we offer ClearCorrect and Smart Moves invisible braces. Both are similar to Invisalign using the same technology and clear plastic aligners to move your teeth. But ClearCorrect and Smart Moves tend to be less expensive than Invisalign, and ClearCorrect is produced here in the US.

Limited orthodontic treatment involves wearing customized trays that move your teeth progressively into the desired position. We start by taking digital impressions of your teeth that our dentists use to plan your treatment, and this plan is used to create a customized series of aligners.

We instruct you to wear each set of aligners for about two weeks before moving to the next set in the series. You will repeat this process every two weeks until you use all your aligners and your treatment is complete.

Treatment with invisible braces has many benefits when compared to metal brackets and wires. The trays are crystal clear, so most people won’t notice you’re wearing them. They’re also removable so you can eat your favorite foods and brush and floss easily. Just be sure to wear the trays for at least 22 hours a day, and you may be able to complete your treatment in as little as 12 to 15 months.

If you would like to learn more about straightening your teeth with invisible braces at our Chesapeake, VA dental office, please call us to arrange an appointment. If your treatment is more extensive, we can recommend an orthodontist that will help you get the smile you desire.
