Invisalign® and Clear Braces
Invisalign®: How Does It Work?
Invisalign® works by using a series of transparent, custom-fitted aligner trays. They fit on your teeth, applying pressure that slowly moves them into the correct position like conventional braces. Every two weeks, you’ll replace the trays with new ones to progress in your treatment.
How Much Do Invisalign Aligners Cost?
Your Invisalign price will vary based on the length and complexity of your treatment. Our dentists will give you an overall estimate after they assess your teeth. Call our office for more information.
What’s the Difference Between Invisalign and Clear Braces?
While Invisalign uses clear and removable aligner trays, clear braces use brackets and wires like metal braces. Because of that, clear braces are more noticeable but don’t need as much adjusting.
How Do Clear Braces Make Teeth Straight?
Clear braces work like metal braces by gradually shifting teeth with a wire and bracket system. However, they’re less visible.
What’s the Price for Clear Braces?
Compared to metal braces, clear braces cost more. However, they’re worth the expense if you want a more discreet appearance. Your price will also depend on your situation.
How Are Clear and Metal Braces Different?
Clear braces are as effective as metal braces. They just don’t stand out as much and are ideal if you can’t use Invisalign.
Metal and Ceramic Braces, and Self-Ligating Brackets
Metal Braces: How Do They Work?
For metal braces, brackets and wires fasten to your teeth. They apply a constant pressure that steadily shifts your teeth into the right position.
What’s the Metal Braces Price?
Normally, metal braces aren’t as expensive as Invisalign or ceramic braces. However, your cost will be based on your insurance coverage, the correction that you need and how long you’ll wear the braces.
What’s the Difference Between Metal and Other Braces?
People can easily see metal braces compared to Invisalign. Ceramic braces could be less visible, but the treatment may take longer.
Self-Ligating Brackets: How Do They Work?
Self-ligating brackets hold the braces wire with a small, spring-loaded door instead of elastics. The treatment may be more comfortable and faster compared to metal braces.
How Much Are Self-Ligating Braces?
Self-ligating brackets are usually more expensive than conventional braces. Learn about your treatment options from our dentists in Northeast Garland during a free consultation.
