Invisalign® could be the answer if you have been dealing with your crooked smile for you entire life. Dr. Jeffrey Gilmore and Dr. Verena Phillips are experienced and have the continued education to provide you with a straight smile without conventional wires and brackets.

The Clearer Advantage is Invisalign®

Although not every person who has crooked teeth is a good candidate for invisible braces. The clear braces system is successful for people who don’t have a severe under or over bite. As a result, teeth that are slightly tipped or tilted or teeth that have small gaps are perfect for Invisalign®.

Invisalign® utilizes a system of clear aligners that are custom made to fit your teeth. Unlike traditional braces, they are removable. This is a huge advantage as wires and brackets can remain on teeth for up to two years. With clear aligners, you can see amazing results in as little as six months. Most Invisalign® users are at the end of their treatment between 9 and 18 months.

Invisalign® is More Comfortable

Because braces are permanently attached to your teeth, they push and pull to reach the desired result. This can be painful and could last for the entire treatment time. Invisalign® is comfortable and made from dental grade pliable soft plastic. Because they are clear, no one will ever know you are having your teeth straightened.

Unlike wires and brackets, which are not comfortable during mealtime, clear braces are removed when you eat, drink, brush, and floss. You will wear your braces for 20 to 22 hours every seven to fourteen days with a new set.

Your Invisalign® dentist in Glenview will prescribe 11 to 31 sets of aligners for you to wear during your treatment. Consequently, you will only need to see Dr. Gilmor or Dr. Phillips every six weeks. Conventional braces require adjustments every 2 weeks.
