Many adults and older teens would like to improve the appearance of their smiles. However, they are embarrassed by traditional metal wire and bracket braces–that “metal mouth” look. A great alternative for mild to moderate tooth alignment issues is American-made ClearCorrect aligners. Dr. Donald Marks and Dr. John Martin evaluate State College patients for these invisible braces, offering them better oral health and great smile aesthetics.
Straight teeth are healthier teeth
Teeth that are overcrowded, protruding, gapped and just plain crooked are harder to keep clean. Tooth decay and gum disease more easily develop. And, there’s the shame of a less than perfect smile.
Research conducted for the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry found that attractive smiles are truly winners–both on the professional and interpersonal scene. So, who wouldn’t want orthodontic correction of their smile problems? However, teens and adults don’t want the hassle, dietary restrictions, sore spots and obvious appearance of metal or ceramic braces.
The solution can be invisible acrylic aligners from Clear Correct and Donald Marks Family Dentistry. They move misaligned smiles into better and healthier positions in less time than traditional braces using a series of aligners that look like professional teeth whitening trays.
Here’s how ClearCorrect works
Your State College dentist takes x-rays, photos and impressions of your mouth. He sends the information to a ClearCorrect lab where a technician custom-makes your aligners according to a 3-dimensional model of your teeth and gums.
When you visit the dental office, you receive the pairs of aligners to be worn 22 hours per day and changed out according to your individual care plan. You remove them to eat, brush and floss, and if you have a special occasion, you may remove them for that, too.
Over the next several months, your teeth will gradually move into correct alignment, but hardly anyone will notice your State College invisible braces. Your mouth will feel comfortable, and at the end of the treatment, your smile will be perfectly aligned and beautiful. When treatment is complete, Dr. Marks and Dr. Martin recommend you wear a custom-fabricated retainer to keep your new smile in great alignment indefinitely.
You can be more confident
During and after your orthodontic treatment with ClearCorrect invisible aligners, you can feel very confident in how your smile looks. Few, if any, people will notice you’ve been wearing these innovative appliances. And afterwards, your new smile will lack the gaps, crowding, overbite, underbite or other defects that have bothered you for so long.
