Dr. Tanya Vlacancich may recommend straightening your smile with clear aligners. Unlike traditional braces, clear aligner therapy does not use brackets or wires to straighten your smile. Instead, custom-made aligners gradually move your teeth into their optimal positions to improve your smile and oral health long-term. We invite you to call us at 718-747-0020 to schedule a consultation with our dentist and find out more about clear aligner therapy in College Point and Whitestone, New York.
Our practice provides several types of clear aligner therapy, including:
Clear aligners are a great option for patients who want to avoid bulky and unsightly metal braces. This orthodontic option is especially popular among teenagers and adults who are looking for virtually invisible treatments. When you visit our office for your initial consultation, our dentist will examine your mouth and discuss your smile goals with you to determine if clear aligners are the best treatment for you.
Clear aligners are made from smooth, thin plastic and are custom designed and computer generated to fit your smile perfectly. Not only are they very discreet, but they are also very comfortable. Your aligners are removable, allowing you to eat all of your favorite foods as well as brush and floss with ease. You will switch to a new set of aligners every few weeks as your treatment progresses. Each new set of aligners will make small changes to the alignment of your teeth, gently guiding them into their proper positions to give you a straight, healthy, beautiful smile.
As your aligners are made from clear plastic, they will need to be cleaned regularly. If you do not clean your aligners frequently, they may cause your teeth to appear yellow, gray or stained.
