El Dorado Hills Invisalign®
No one wants to hide their smile due to deformed teeth. Traditional braces, Invisalign®, and dental veneers are three procedures used to realign your teeth. Invisalign® uses a sequence of custom made plastic aligners to straighten your teeth allowing a comfortable alternative to metal braces. These aligners act like invisible braces allowing your teeth to be straightened comfortably and discreetly. A huge number of patients report total satisfaction with the Invisalign® treatment and the stunning results.
Why Choose Invisalign®
Invisalign® is one of the most popular orthodontic procedures to fix crooked teeth. Smile Time Dental is a certified Invisalign® provider and can create a sequence of 18 to 30 aligners. Each aligner is used for 2 weeks at a time and then replaced with a new aligner. Each aligner will shift your teeth gradually your teeth will steadily progress and by the final aligner you will have the smile you always wanted.
- Discreet and nearly invisible
- Can be taken off to eat or brush your teeth
- Smooth against your lips and teeth
You will never have to hide your smile because Invisalign® is practically invisible. If you are self conscious of the look of braces Invisalign® is a discrete alternative. The entire process is usually 9 to 15 months long determined by the location of your teeth in your mouth.
Is Invisalign® Right For Me
Invisalign® is a great solution for people that want to straighten their teeth without the typical problems of braces. Sometimes Invisalign® is not the right fit for everyone.
If you have a more serious case that involves some of the below conditions your dentist may not recommend Invisalign® for your situation:
- Odd tooth shape having round or short teeth may not be able to align properly in Invisalign®
- Gapped or crowded teeth Invisalign® does not put enough force to straighten overcrowded or misaligned teeth
- Dental bridge due to bridges being connected to your teeth it is difficult for the aligners to shift your teeth
- Misaligned jaws Invisalign® are not made to help improve your jaw position or bite into alignment
If you are a good candidate for Invisalign® this regimen can gradually and gently shift your teeth so they become perfectly spaced and aligned in your mouth. More adults than teenagers have Invisalign® due to the discipline of caring and wearing their aligners and their teeth are already grown in. Invisalign® is acclaimed for being effective and comfortable.
