We see many patients in our Tampa office who really want a better smile, but just don’t want to go through the ordeal of wearing metal braces. The good news is that today there are much easier teeth straightening options that are less invasive, more affordable, and provide faster results.
Traditional Orthodontic Treatment is Not the Only Option
When it comes to wearing braces, a lot of us think of traditional orthodontic treatment, which involves metal braces and a lot of wires. Today, metal braces are not the only option when it comes to correcting teeth alignment. A new generation of braces for teeth straightening uses more comfortable and aesthetically pleasing materials. Clear dental aligners offer another alternative for fixing teeth alignment.
There are many differences between braces and aligners, but both involve applying pressure to the teeth over time to correct teeth alignment. Teeth alignment through traditional orthodontic treatment with metal braces can take years to complete. Dental aligners are a more desirable option for patients who are candidates because treatment does not take nearly as long. Dental aligners are also clear and less noticeable, as well as more comfortable to wear.
Weninger Dentistry helps Tampa patients achieve their best smiles with affordable and effective treatment options. Our teeth straightening approaches have been successful for a wide range of patients, providing desired results without the discomfort and expense of more traditional methods.

These aligner trays are made of smooth, comfortable and nearly invisible plastic that is worn over your teeth. Your teeth gradually and gently shift into place as you wear the dental aligners, which are replaced approximately every two weeks, until your treatment is complete.
