Get Invisalign Treatment from a Preferred Provider

By: Dr. Hilliard Blank

The days of metal braces are numbered. Modern treatments for teeth straightening that are less restrictive and more discreet are gaining popularity across the country. The foremost of these treatments is Invisalign. Invisalign is a cutting-edge product that allows anyone to improve the quality of their smile without the discomfort and embarrassment of traditional metal braces.

Through a series of custom-designed aligners, your teeth can be gradually repositioned for a more symmetrical smile. The aligners are made from a smooth, durable plastic that is transparent and almost invisible to the casual observer. They can be put in and removed with the ease of a mouth guard. Over the course of your Invisalign treatment, our office will provide you with a series of aligners that shift your teeth in two-week phases. Over months, your teeth adjust to the aligners, making a more beautiful smile and reducing any long-term problems with the shape of your bite.

People prefer Invisalign over traditional braces because it is discreet, comfortable, and more empowering than metal brackets.
 

The drawbacks of metal braces:

  •  Many foods can break or damage important parts
  •  Risks of injury to the lips and gums around the sharp metal pieces
  •  Increased difficulty of brushing and flossing
  •  Self-consciousness of metal smile

    With the clear plastic aligners of Invisalign, you can eat anything you want because the aligners are easily removed for cleaning, and no one has to know about your corrective treatment.

At our office, we’ve been providing Invisalign treatments to the Lincoln Park and Lakeview areas for years now. We’re a 2013 Invisalign Preferred Provider for Chicago residents. We will see you through the entire process, customizing your aligners and your treatment to your unique bite. Having straight teeth has more benefits than just appearances. Crooked teeth can cause significant problems over time if neglected: your jaw can shift, decay can accumulate in unreachable places, and problems with chewing may become more common. Everyone can benefit from orthodontics and it’s never too late to straighten your teeth. Check out our page on Invisalign to learn more about the process and what we can offer for you. From November 11th to November 25th, we’ll be offering a special discount for $600 off your Invisalign treatment. Schedule your consultation today!
