Malocclusion is defined as crooked teeth or a misaligned bite. Many adults have long wanted to have straighter teeth. They may be hesitant to straighten their teeth because metal braces would mar the beauty of their smile. If this sounds familiar, ask Dr. Wendy Chen about how Invisalign® in Colleyville, Texas, can help you reach a straight smile. Invisalign is a set of aligners that is designed specifically for you. They are worn over the teeth for 20 to 22 hours a day to gently straighten the smile. Every week or two, you will receive the next set of aligners to further your straightening treatment.

Straightening your teeth with Invisalign has many benefits, including:

The Cosmetic Orthodontic Option
Invisalign uses virtually invisible plastic aligners to straighten your teeth. Most people will not even notice that you are undergoing orthodontic treatment. With Invisalign, you can smile with confidence!

Proper Oral Hygiene
Properly cleaning crooked teeth can be very difficult. Plaque and food particles are often missed when the teeth aren’t properly aligned. Straight teeth are much easier to clean correctly. In addition, cleaning your teeth is much easier with Invisalign than with braces, as Invisalign aligners are removable.

Eat What You Like
There are no food restrictions with Invisalign, so you can continue to eat all the foods that you love.
