Choose Invisalign in Plano, TX, For A Straighter Smile!
Are you dealing with crooked, misaligned teeth? Are you one of the millions of adults who are unhappy, self-conscious, or even embarrassed about your smile? Most adults do not want to wear traditional metal orthodontic braces for up to three years, if at all, and may not want porcelain veneers.
Dr. Mark Sowell offers a safe cosmetic solution to fit your adult lifestyle. Dr. Mark Sowell of Sensational Smiles offers ClearCorrect™ and Invisalign® in Plano, TX, for patients who desire a convenient and discreet way to realign their teeth. Invisalign and ClearCorrect are two of the most popular types of clear aligners. They fit snugly over upper and lower teeth. Your aligners will slowly straighten your teeth in about nine to 18 months.
Patients wear clear aligners throughout the day. However, you can remove them for eating, brushing, and flossing. They can help correct patients with:
- Gapped teeth
- Overcrowded teeth
Correcting crooked teeth does not only improve the aesthetics of your smile. It can help prevent the development of a more complex dental problem. Patients with crooked teeth may be more susceptible to gum disease, tooth decay, and cavities because patients cannot properly clean their teeth due to their alignment issues. Finding a solution for your crooked teeth can improve the aesthetic and the quality of your oral health.
Clear Aligners vs. Metal Braces
Discreet treatment – Using clear braces to correct your orthodontic issues is almost unnoticeable to anyone else. Metal braces, on the other hand, are very noticeable. Especially when food gets caught in the metal braces, causing an embarrassing situation. With clear aligners, no one will even know you are wearing them.
No dietary restrictions – If you have to wear metal braces, there is a long list of foods you should avoid. This includes food that is hard, chewy, or crunchy. One of the greatest benefits of wearing clear braces is that you can remove them to eat. Furthermore, you can eat whatever you want.
Easy removal for cleaning and routine dental care – You can remove your invisible braces to brush your teeth and floss. With braces, once they go on, they will remain on for the length of the treatment plan, which can last up to 5 years. Often, you will see enamel staining if not cared for properly. Clear aligners eliminate the risk of tooth enamel staining caused by permanently attached metal brackets.
Comfortable – Metal braces are made of brackets that bond to your teeth with thin metal wires connecting them. They can cause some discomfort, and patients sometimes find it difficult to adjust to them. These parts protrude from the teeth and can puncture or scratch the inside of your mouth. However, clear aligners will not need all these extra parts. Your aligners will sit comfortably against your teeth without the need for the bonding material.
Whiten While You Straighten Teeth
Choose Invisalign or ClearCorrect with Dr. Mark Sowell and receive complimentary professional-grade teeth whitening gel throughout your clear aligner treatment (value of $500).
Invisalign and ClearCorrect are a revolutionary combination of proven orthodontic techniques, modern materials, and innovative thought. These virtually invisible braces look more like athletic mouth guards than braces on teeth. Unlike metal dental braces, Invisalign clear aligners are removable for eating, brushing, and flossing.
This makes it easier to maintain oral hygiene throughout orthodontic treatment.
The Invisalign system is a series of clear aligners we custom-mold to fit your teeth. You will get several aligners to wear for approximately two weeks at a time to achieve beautiful results. In most cases, Invisalign and ClearCorrect work more quickly than traditional braces. Most patients complete their treatment in about 9 to 18 months if they wear each set properly and follow all instructions.
Dr. Mark Sowell is a Plano, TX dentist certified in both Invisalign and ClearCorrect treatment. We offer both systems to get the best treatment for your needs, goals, and budget.
Why Choose Invisalign or ClearCorrect from Dr. Mark Sowell?
- Convenience: Patients can remove the aligners for various activities. Patients will need to visit our Plano, TX dental office for visits with Dr. Sowell to check their progress.
- Aesthetics: Invisalign is virtually invisible. Unlike traditional braces, we make Invisalign out of a clear, plastic material that virtually disappears when you wear them.
- Treatment for all ages: Invisalign can be an ideal solution for patients of all ages. Dr. Sowell will examine your smile to determine if Invisalign is right for you.
The length of treatment depends on the severity of misaligned teeth. The patient can expect to see results a few months after beginning treatment, depending on the severity of their teeth. Dr. Sowell will take digital impressions of the teeth to create custom-made aligners that fit comfortably and securely on the teeth. After we create your aligners, Dr. Sowell will go over aftercare instructions to inform you on the appropriate ways to take care of your aligners and how to wear them.
