If you are an adult who has spent a lifetime living with crooked or misaligned teeth, you may have resigned yourself to this. Perhaps covering up your smile is now an ingrained habit. Or maybe you avoid smiling altogether to avoid revealing your teeth.

There is good news! You no longer have to spend two years or more with a mouth full of metal wires and brackets to get a straight smile. Invisalign and ClearCorrect are two invisible braces options available at our Fontana, CA dental office. Both discreetly straighten misaligned, crooked, gapped, or overlapped teeth, making them ideal for the adult lifestyle.

How Clear Braces Work

Both Invisalign and ClearCorrect invisible braces work with a series of clear plastic aligner trays. These are custom-made for you so you can reach your smile goals. You will wear the aligners each day, swapping them out for a new set every few weeks according to the schedule set by your Winning Smiles dentist.

After a time period that is shorter than traditional orthodontics—usually anywhere from six to 18 months—your teeth should be beautifully aligned.

Benefits of Clear Braces

The most significant advantage to clear braces, of course, is that they are virtually invisible. Most people won’t even notice you are undergoing orthodontic treatment.

Because the aligners are removable, you can eat all of your favorite foods and practice good oral hygiene. It is crucial that you brush your teeth after eating and clean the aligners regularly.

One possible drawback of clear braces is that it is on you to wear the aligners for a minimum of 22 hours each day. If you don’t, you will likely not reach your smile goals.

Another disadvantage is that it can be easy to lose the aligners. Some people have reported placing them in a napkin while eating, then inadvertently throwing them away with the napkin.
