Are you struggling with the appearance of your teeth and dreaming of a more beautiful smile? If your confidence is down, you’re not alone. Dental problems often correlate with low self-esteem, leading many patients to seek cosmetic dentistry procedures. 

 

One of the most popular cosmetic dentistry treatments is Invisalign®. Improving your smile with Invisalign yields transformative results that can last a lifetime. 

 

Serving patients across the Chicago, IL area, Wicker Park Dental Group offers the Invisalign clear braces treatment to straighten teeth. Schedule an appointment with our team today to begin your journey to a smile you’ll be proud of for years to come.

Why Choose Invisalign?

Invisalign offers patients an excellent alternative to metal braces. Instead of bulky brackets and painful wires, the treatment uses a series of thin and translucent plastic aligners. It corrects the same problems as traditional orthodontics, such as crooked teeth, gapped teeth, underbites, and overbites. 

Benefits of Invisalign Clear Braces

When deciding between Invisalign and traditional metal braces, a lot of patients believe the benefits of Invisalign outweigh its slightly higher cost.

 

Some of Invisalign’s many benefits include:

  • Crystal-Clear Appearance: Each plastic aligner is thin and crystal-clear. They are barely noticeable so you can maintain your normal appearance. 
  • Removable Aligners: Aligners can be temporarily removed for brushing, flossing, eating, and drinking. This allows patients to eat whatever they want without worrying about food staying lodged in a bracket, a bracket falling out, or a wire snapping off in the process. This also makes the aligners much easier to clean than traditional braces. 
  • Comfortable Fit: Although each new set may be a little bit tight in the beginning, Invisalign aligners are very comfortable. They provide a smooth fit around the teeth and do not irritate the gums, lips, or cheeks. 
  • Beautiful Results: Invisalign enhances the appearance of any smile with the same quality of results as traditional metal braces. At the end of the treatment, patients are left with straighter teeth that will last forever if properly cared for. 

Using Invisalign to Straighten Teeth in Chicago

If you’re interested in straightening your teeth with Invisalign, take the first step by scheduling a consultation. At this time, our Wicker Park Dental Group team will perform a comprehensive evaluation with photos, x-rays, and digital impressions. This information will be used to virtually map out your treatment and create a plan for how your teeth will shift. 

 

Once this initial exam is complete, the information will be sent to an Invisalign lab where your custom aligners will be created. When the aligners arrive at our office, you’ll come in for your first fitting, and will continue to visit us for follow-up visits throughout the course of treatment. 

 

Aligners are typically worn for two weeks at a time before patients switch to the next set. They must be kept in for at least 22 hours a day for the treatment to be effective. The treatment period for most patients lasts from 12 to 18 months. You’ll see your teeth getting straighter before your eyes every time you switch to a new set until the treatment is complete.
