Many patients that we see at Carrollton Smiles with smile imperfections like teeth overcrowding, over and underbites, and crooked teeth also enjoy very active lifestyles. When they ask about convenient ways to restore their smiles, our licensed general dentist, Dr. Sirisha Bhandaru, mentions Invisalign as one possible solution.
Over the years, she’s fitted numerous patients in the Carrollton, TX, area with Invisalign, and most are surprised how comfortable, unnoticeable, and convenient the clear plastic aligner trays are. And, the natural smile-restoring results that Invisalign produces say it all!

Would I Benefit From Invisalign?
Do you or a family member currently feel self-conscious about smiling because of:
Excessive tooth gapping?
An over or underbite?
In addition to keeping you from smiling and reducing your self-confidence, are these issues also causing chewing and speaking discomfort? If so, you are a candidate for Invisalign therapy. Please note that if your smile imperfection is of a more serious nature, Dr. Bhandaru will probably recommend another form of orthodontia care to ensure the outcomes you deserve.
Invisalign Therapy Features
Time-after-time at Carrollton Smiles our happy Invisalign patients have told us that they most enjoy these product features while restoring their smiles like new again:
Traditional fixed braces can sometimes cause mouth and gum discomfort when rubbing against sensitive tissues. Invisalign plastic aligner trays are designed with a patient’s ultimate wear comfort in mind. There are also no bands to be tightened every few months, which eliminates brushing and chewing discomfort that’s typically present for several days afterwards.
Invisalign trays are meant to be worn 20 to 22 hours a day, including while you’re asleep. When it’s time to eat, or brush and floss your teeth, you conveniently remove the aligners beforehand. That means you can still enjoy many hard or chewy foods, like popcorn, nuts, and other goodies. Overall, you’ll experience few lifestyle changes with Invisalign!
It’s a Confidence Booster
Studies have found that one of the first things strangers notice about us is our smile. At school, work or play, Invisalign’s clear trays are virtually unnoticeable to others. In fact, you can confidently go about your normal activities all day long with Invisalign in place. And, as your teeth straighten, you will be excited to show off your new smile to everyone!
It Costs the Same as Fixed Braces
Again, we see some patients at Carrollton Smiles that need fixed braces due to a more serious oral malocclusion. But for most patients, from teens to seniors, Invisalign is a refreshing alternative to traditional braces. Overall, a course of Invisalign treatment costs about the same as fixed braces. More and more insurance plans are now offering removeable braces coverage, including Invisalign, so contact our office for details.
