Arden patients learn about methods of straightening teeth

Patients in or around the Arden area are encouraged to speak to us about the methods available for straightening teeth. Dr. Christopher Port and the team at the Asheville Smile Center can help patients educate themselves on the many ways of addressing malocclusion. One of these ways is with Invisalign therapy.

Invisalign is a great alternative to traditional metal bracket and wire braces. Dr. Christopher Port speaks with many patients, both teenagers and adults, who are interested in straightening their teeth but who are not interested in conventional orthodontics. They may feel as though the brackets and wires will detract from their appearance and make them feel self-conscious or embarrassed. This is when solutions such as Invisalign are considered. Invisalign orthodontics uses clear aligner trays that are worn over the dental arch. They snap into place and can gently reposition the teeth in a way that doesn't require metal. Invisalign gently pushes teeth into desirable locations in a few months in a discreet, comfortable manner.

Dr. Christopher Port and the team of the Asheville Smile Center may suggest to Arden area patients Invisalign as a solution for misaligned teeth. Patients are welcome to contact us and book a consultation visit with one of our dedicated team members to ask questions about this particular treatment and learn how it can enhance the natural smile.

Invisalign works by covering the teeth in a tight fashion with trays that move the teeth into alignment. The aligner trays are made of quality, clear medical-grade plastic that is hard to distinguish when worn. This discreet treatment can make all the difference in patients' self-esteem throughout the process of improving the smile.

If you live in or around the area of Arden, contact the Asheville Smile Center today to schedule your appointment. We look forward to meeting you and your family and discussing the advantages of cosmetic and restorative dentistry!
