About Teeth Aligners@headingTag>
Quite a few individuals did not require or weren't able to have braces in their youth, but they now have some spacing or crowding problems that do not allow them to have a straight, beautiful smile. Clear teeth straightening trays are tight fitting covers for the teeth created with see through acrylic, and sometimes plastic material that delicately moves teeth into a straighter look. Using various sets of aligners over a specified course of time, clear teeth aligners are able to transform moderately crowded teeth and spacing issues for straighter, healthier teeth. Clear aligners are often preferred by adults over traditional orthodontics since they are unnoticeable and can be removed for brushing, flossing, and eating. Our dentists at DentalWorks - Durham in Durham, NC discuss teeth straightening alternatives, including clear teeth aligners during regular appointments.
