Farmington Hills patients improve their smiles with invisible aligners


family dental care in Farmington Hills When you are a teenager, braces are considered a rite of passage. Often, kids will have friends and classmates also wearing braces which makes it part of their normal day to day life. Many adults have the desire to improve their smiles, but have hesitations about the aesthetic impact of wearing metal brackets and wires for several years.

At the office of Dr. Richard S. Bernstein, DDS, we offer an alternative. Rather than having to wear traditional braces, patients can choose the Invisalign system. Invisalign uses invisible aligner trays that can gently move teeth into proper alignment without a major impact on your appearance.

How do invisible aligners work?

Invisalign uses a series of aligner trays that are swapped out every two weeks. The trays are custom fabricated based on the current alignment of your teeth and work to gradually move the teeth into their proper position. After each two-week period, the patient will swap out their trays for the next set in the series.

There are many benefits of Invisalign, including:

  • The clear trays are barely visible when being worn, making them discreet.
  • The trays are removable which makes it easy to enjoy foods and properly clean the teeth and gums.
  • The trays are comfortable. They are made of a thin, smooth plastic.

How to get started with Invisalign

Patients who are interested in Invisalign should start by scheduling a consultation with Dr. Bernstein. During this appointment, he can evaluate the positioning of your teeth and determine if Invisalign can improve your alignment. From there, digital impressions are taken to map out your custom aligners.

It’s important to have a smile that you are proud to share with the world. If you want to learn more about improving your smile with clear aligner trays, call us today at 248.636.2100.
