Many of us want straighter teeth but can’t imagine spending months with a mouthful of metal! Schuman Center Dental Aesthetics helps you achieve a beautiful smile without braces using Invisalign® barely noticeable aligners.
CONVENIENT & DISCREET
Achieve the smile of your dreams discreetly
Invisalign aligners work the same way traditional braces do. They gently guide your teeth into their ideal positions, but without unsightly and uncomfortable wires and brackets.
Here’s how Invisalign works. From our office at Schuman Center Dental Aesthetics in Creve Coeur, MO, we perform 3D x-ray imaging to gather images of your teeth, overall bite, and gum issues. Then, we send the results to a lab that creates custom Invisalign aligners.
From there, you’ll switch to a new set of aligners every week or two. Each will shift your teeth into increasingly optimal alignment.
Unlike braces, you can take your aligners out when you eat, drink, brush, or floss. Though Dr. Schuman will recommend keeping the aligners in 20 to 22 hours a day, this flexibility can be extremely enticing to those who can’t imagine the 24/7 inconvenience of traditional braces.
