Clear Align Dentist Invisible Braces for a Smile You Will Love

Get The Smile You Deserve Today at W Dentistry in Lubbock

Are you looking for a dentist’s office near you that offers clear aligner (invisible) “braces?” If so, W Dentistry is the place to go.

Clear aligners are made from smooth, thin plastic custom-designed to fit your smile. They are removable, allowing you to eat all of your favorite foods and floss and brush with ease. To get a straight smile, you will need to switch out to a new set of aligners every few weeks during your treatment process. Each new set of aligners will make small changes to the structure of your teeth and align them to their desired position, creating a healthy, straight, and beautiful smile. To maintain your clean, beautiful smile, the set of aligners will need to be cleaned regularly so they do not become discolored.

Why Should I Consider Clear Align Braces?

If you require braces, clear aligners may be a great alternative to the traditional metal bracket option. The discreet appearance is the most significant benefit, meaning there are no changes to your overall natural appearance. The comfort of clear aligners is also unmatched since no metal brackets or wires are pressing against the sides of your lips and cheeks. The clear aligner trays are made of smooth, clear plastic that does not have sharp edges, and they fit your smile exactly to provide comfort for your gums and teeth. Easy maintenance is another benefit of clear aligner braces because the trays are removable, and you can practice your at-home dental hygiene routine without worry. You also do not need to have a restrictive diet with clear aligners because you’re able to remove your trays before every snack and meal. We will discuss nutrition and hygiene tips with you to ensure you have the healthiest orthodontic experience in your clear aligners.

Are Clear Align Braces Better than Traditional Metal Braces?

The best choice between traditional metal braces and clear aligners depends on your orthodontic and lifestyle needs. Traditional metal braces are often used for more complex teeth misalignment, whereas clear aligns are used for minor to moderate misalignments. Traditional metal braces work by using metal brackets glued to each tooth, moving teeth into position with the help of wires and sometimes rubber bands. Clear aligners are designed to pinpoint pressure to the areas that need repositioning. If you’re in good overall oral health and have a slightly crooked smile or uneven bite, you might want to consider clear aligners! Typically the treatment plan timeline for clear aligners is anywhere from six to eighteen months if you wear your trays consistently, and you will need to wear a clear retainer at night after completion of your treatment.

FAQ's About General Dentistry

Below are some of the most frequently asked questions patients have about dentistry and oral health issues. If you have any other questions, or would like to schedule an appointment, we would love to hear from you.
Why do regular dental visits matter?
Regular dental visits are important because they can help spot tooth decay or gum disease early on, when treatment is likely to be simpler and more affordable. They also help prevent many problems from developing in the first place. Visiting your dentist regularly is also important because some diseases or medical conditions have symptoms that might appear in the mouth.
What can I expect on my first visit?
During your first dental appointment, we will begin by gathering all of the necessary information to determine your dental health. We'll take X-rays and examine your mouth for any problems that might need treatment. After cleaning you up, it's time to discuss all your dental solution options.
What insurance companies are you contracted with?
Although we do not contract with any insurance providers, we are able to accept most dental insurance on an indemnity basis. We will check with your insurance company to determine your out-of-pocket cost, and then get the claim started for you.

Because we accept dental insurance on an indemnity basis, you will need to pay for your services before we can begin any dental work. We accept cash, credit or one of our convenient financing options. Your insurance company will then reimburse you within a few weeks.
