Bangor Family Dentistry is proud to announce that we are now able to offer Invisalign® teeth straightening to our patients. Invisalign® is a tooth straightening method using a custom-made series of aligner trays created specifically for your teeth. The aligner trays are made of virtually invisible plastic that are smooth and comfortable. You wear them over your teeth in much the same way as a mouthguard or a nightguard.
The aligners are designed to gradually and gently shift your teeth into place, based on the exact movements Dr. Carreira plans for you. With Invisalign® there are no metal brackets to attach to your teeth and no wires to adjust or tighten. About every two weeks, you advance to a new aligner tray and continue to progress from tray to tray until your treatment is complete. Over time you will have a great smile with minimal intrusion on your daily life. The best part about the Invisalign® tooth straightening process is that most people won't even know you're doing it.
Dr. Carreira recently completed an extensive Invisalign® training program to learn the Invisalign® process and is now a certified provider of the Invisalign® tooth straightening system. He will assess the condition of your teeth and design a custom alignment program that meets you specific goals. Whether you have only a minor alignment as your goal or you need all your teeth straightened, Dr. Carreira is able to customize an Invisalign® plan for you.
