A smooth and winning smile serves you well in many social situations. Many adults with minor alignment issues are put off by the notion of wearing traditional wire and bracket braces. However, Invisalign® can actually give you the winning smile you’ve always wanted in as little as six to eight weeks.

Dr. Wendy Chen can fit you for Invisalign® after she will examines your mouth and take a few X-rays. This helps define your alignment goals and the number of aligners needed to give you the winning smile you’ve always wanted.

The aligner trays Invisalign® uses are made from a durable clear plastic material, that makes it hard for the casual observer to spot. To effectively realign your teeth, you will need to wear the aligners for at least 20 hours each day. Each set of aligners is designed to gradually adjust your teeth one step closer to your ideal alignment goals.

Every two weeks you will switch to another set of aligners that are tuned one small step closer to your ideal alignment. Most of the people meet their alignment goals in the course of three or four sets of aligner trays.

While the aligners are in your mouth, you can talk and drink normally. However, you will need to remove them before eating, using tobacco or chewing gum while the aligners are in your mouth. When you are not wearing the aligners you should keep them in the case provided.

If you are interested in being fitted for Invisalign, you should call Dr. Wendy Chen’s office in Colleyville, Texas, at 817-581-4031 to schedule an appointment.
