Invisalign® Clear Braces in McLean

Esthetic Braces From Dr. Hinkle

Smile Straightening for McLean

Invisalign® is an alternative way to straighten your teeth. Traditional braces involve the use of metal wires and brackets that are actually fused to the teeth. They are a challenge to clean, and the wires are very visible and can scratch and cut your lips and gums. Once the braces are removed, they might leave the teeth discolored. If you’re hesitant to straighten your teeth because of these concerns, then Invisalign® might be a better option.

The Invisalign® system is a clear, almost invisible series of removable trays, custom fit to your teeth. These trays gently move your teeth over time. Depending on your needs, the aligner trays are swapped out periodically, typically every two weeks.

Unlike metal braces, Invisalign® trays are removable, allowing you to eat and clean your teeth as desired. That means there are no worries about getting food stuck in your teeth and using special procedures to floss. There is less discomfort, and none of it comes from wires or rubber bands.
