Having crooked teeth not only affects your appearance and self-confidence but can also lead to misalignment of your jaw during eating and sleeping. You may think orthodontic treatment is only for teenagers, but you can improve your teeth at any age. If you want a straight, beautiful teeth, finding the right cosmetic dentist in Mt. Pleasant, SC is a great place to start. Dr. Kevin Hogan offers many orthodontic and cosmetic procedures and he can help you decide whether traditional braces or Invisalign® clear braces are right for you.


How Invisalign® Works


The metal brackets and wires of traditional braces use small adjustments over time to straighten the teeth for improved appearance and functionality. The Invisalign® alternative uses a set of graduated clear trays that fit over the teeth and are switched out over time to bring the teeth to the proper position. These clear aligners are much less noticeable than traditional braces and include many other benefits for the right candidates. When you schedule a consultation with Dr. Hogan, he will determine which cosmetic and orthodontic procedures are the best fit for your unique situation.
