Invisalign® for Metairie: Get Perfectly Straight Teeth Without Braces

Invisalign Logo

For decades, the only way to fix crooked or gapped teeth was with bulky metal braces. For patients, this meant years of poking wires, difficult to clean teeth, and restricted foods. Fortunately, dentistry has now developed a more aesthetically minded alternative that is perfect for patients who want a straighter smile without the hassle of traditional braces: Invisalign. If you’re looking to get straighter teeth in the easiest and most subtle way possible, Invisalign clear braces from Nelson Dental Care are your answer.

What is Invisalign? How Does It Work?

They simply slip over the teeth similar to a mouthguard, and each one in the series is shaped slightly differently to bring the teeth closer to their ideal position. Once a patient has worn all of their trays, they should have a perfectly straight smile.
