Thinking about braces? Think again! Invisalign Teen takes a modern approach to straightening teeth. With a series of clear aligners that gradually straighten your teeth, Invisalign Teen is comfortable, affordable and effective. And without brackets and wires, you'll have the confidence of a great smile even during treatment. And without braces, it's easier to maintain better oral hygiene.
Each aligner also comes with a small, inconspicuous Blue Dot Wear Indicator, which helps you know if you're ready for your next set of aligners.
Plus, we know that things can happen, like when you accidentally lose an aligner. That's why you get up to six free replacement aligners.
Invisalign Teen provides up to six free replacement aligners if lost or broken.
The Advantage Over Braces
Many patients have asked about the benefits of veneers when compared to Invisalign. While veneers are certainly an option for improving your smile, they only cover up certain dental imperfections, rather than correct them. This means that some existing periodontal problems could still remain. Applied to the front side of the teeth only, veneers also require the removal of the surface enamel of each tooth — an irreversible procedure. Often considered a quick fix, veneers typically need to be replaced every 5 to 10 years — this can become very expensive in the long run. Coffee, tea and red wine need to be avoided to prevent discoloration, and care must be taken to prevent chipping or breaking the veneer. So while the surface look of the teeth may improve with veneers, the underlying tooth and gum problems could still exist.
With regular braces, you may experience some or all of the following: pain, discomfort, mouth sores or injuries caused by the brace wires, tooth decay (from inadequate brushing and flossing), plaque buildup, tooth discoloration, tooth/bracket breakage, or difficulty eating. As if that weren’t enough, there are also the personal sacrifices — popcorn, chips, bagels, hard-crusted bread, pizza crust, pretzel, nuts, certain candies… plus apples, carrots, corn on the cob, and more.
