Invisible Braces Marietta, GA

Many adults spend their entire lives covering their mouths when they laugh, smile or talk. They feel stuck because they do not want to wear adult metal braces for years or they are concerned that other corrective teeth straightening procedures could be too invasive or too expensive.

Marietta cosmetic dentist Dr. Michael Mulkey offers convenient, discreet and comfortable orthodontic treatment with invisible braces. We offer both Invisalign® and Six Month Smiles and will make the appropriate recommendation for your unique dental health needs and cosmetic goals. Invisible braces make it possible for you to receive orthodontic treatment that will improve your oral health and enhance your smile without the inconveniences and hassles associated with metal braces.

Why Should You Straighten Your Teeth?

Dr. Mulkey or Dr. Hildreth will determine if you are a candidate for this type of orthodontic treatment and then create a personalized plan to achieve your cosmetic goals.

Straightening crooked teeth not only improves the aesthetics of your smile, but also helps to prevent additional dental problems. Crooked and misaligned teeth can make it difficult for patients to thoroughly brush and floss all surfaces, raising the risk for tooth decay and eventual damage. They can also be a contributing factor to an imbalanced bite, which can lead to TMJ and other complex dental problems over time.

How Does Invisalign Work?

Invisalign uses changeable clear retainers that will gradually reposition your teeth according to your unique treatment plan created by Dr. Mulkey or Dr. Hildreth using their CAD/CAM software.

The first step is to take digital impressions which are used to design your custom aligners. The number of aligners necessary, and the corresponding length of your treatment, will be dependent on your desired result and the severity of your dental concerns.

Your custom aligners will typically be changed every couple of weeks, slowly revealing a straighter smile. The final aligner will serve as a retainer to be worn daily, helping to keep your new smile looking good for the long run.
