Clear aligners are a popular orthodontic treatment among teenagers and adults. Unlike traditional braces, clear aligners are made from transparent plastic, allowing you to achieve a straighter smile while maintaining a completely natural and professional look! We invite you to call Bayview Dental Care at 718-273-8686 to learn more about clear aligner orthodontics in Staten Island, New York, and to schedule your appointment with Dr. Marcia Greene!
Clear aligners are a great option for patients who want to avoid bulky and unsightly metal brackets and wires. Clear aligners can be used to treat the same orthodontic issues as braces, including:
- Crooked teeth
- Crowded teeth
- Teeth with gaps and spaces between them
- Bad bites (overbites, underbites, crossbites, open bites, etc.)
Your clear aligners are custom-designed and computer generated to ensure precise, comfortable appliances. You will switch to a new set of aligners every few weeks, with each new aligner making small changes to the alignment of your teeth in order to gradually move them into the proper positions. You will visit our dentist regularly throughout your treatment to ensure that your smile is progressing as planned.
Your aligners are removable, which allows you to eat, brush, and floss with ease. We recommend that you clean your aligners regularly. Because they are made of clear plastic, they can cause your teeth to appear stained, gray, or dirty if not cleaned frequently.
If you have any questions about clear aligner orthodontics, and to schedule a consultation with our skilled dentist, please contact our office today. We look forward to meeting you soon!
