Do you wish you had a straighter smile? Many people feel self-conscious and embarrassed about their smile, but avoid the necessary care to correct it. Often, adults and teenagers feel uncomfortable with the idea of enduring years of harsh, metal braces. Thankfully, there is a popular, inconspicuous alternative to traditional orthodontics. At The Silverstrom Group, your Livingston cosmetic dentists, Dr. David Silverstrom and Dr. Gary Silverstrom, explain how Invisalign can dramatically improve your smile without metal braces.


No More Braces

With Invisalign, patients receive a series of clear plastic aligners. Worn between 20 and 22 hours a day, the aligners gently and slowly reposition your teeth. For adults, the average treatment time is about one year. Invisalign allows patients to restore their smiles without the use of traditional orthodontics. Patients also require fewer office visits, and upgrade to a set of aligners approximately every two weeks. Simply follow Dr. David or Gary Silverstrom’s instructions, and you’ll be on the road to a rejuvenated smile.

Invisalign vs. Traditional Orthodontics

The Invisalign systems hold many advantages over metal braces. Invisalign is practically invisible, and doesn’t irritate your gums or cheeks the way metal braces often do. Patients can remove their aligners before meals, so any changes in your diet are completely unnecessary. Removable aligners mean caring for your smile is easier. Brushing and flossing aren’t difficult, which allows patients to maintain good dental health.

Perfecting Your Smile

 The first step in receiving your Invisalign aligners involves a consultation and oral examination from your Livingston dentists. Dr. David or Gary Silverstrom will decide if Invisalign offers the best means of correcting your smile. Then Dr. David or Gary Silverstrom will take photos, x-rays, and an impression of your teeth. Using these materials, Invisalign will create a 3-D digital image. Dr. David or Gary Silverstrom will use the image to craft a specific treatment plan. Your Livingston dentists will also be able to show you how your teeth will be gradually moved during each stage of the treatment. When the treatment period is over, your will have a beautiful smile.
