Invisalign braces are a transparent alternative to bracesInvisalign braces are the best way to straighten teeth and improve your smile. As a leading Invisalign provider, Salt Lake City dentist Allan Thomas can answer your questions and help you determine whether Invisalign treatment is right for you. Sometimes called “clear braces”, Invisalign uses clear, plastic aligners that fit over your teeth to gently straighten your smile. Unlike braces, which are bonded to your teeth and remain permanent until your treatment is over, Invisalign clear braces are completely removable at any point. Take Invisalign out to play sports, brush your teeth, or have dinner. With Invisalign braces, you do not have to worry about poking wires or uncomfortable metal brackets, like you do with traditional braces. That’s because Invisalign is made of an advanced thermoplastic material that fits smoothly over your teeth.
