Our experienced dentist may recommend Invisalign® treatment to straighten your teeth and help you achieve a more beautiful smile. This discreet orthodontic option works to align your teeth while also maintaining your natural appearance during treatment. Best of all, Invisalign treatment can straighten your teeth at any age! Contact Carlston Dental Group today at 310-838-0844 to make an appointment with Dr. Dean Carlston and learn if Invisalign clear aligners in Los Angeles, California, are right for you.
Invisalign clear aligners are an excellent choice for patients who are searching for a more discreet orthodontic treatment option for straightening their smile. Unlike traditional braces, which use metal brackets and wires, Invisalign treatment uses a series of custom-made, computer-generated plastic aligners to straighten your teeth. Each set of aligners makes small adjustments to the alignment of your teeth, and as you switch to a new set of aligners every few weeks, your teeth will gradually and gently move into the optimal positions.
Invisalign clear aligners can treat all the same orthodontic issues as braces, including crowded teeth, crooked teeth, gapped and spaced teeth, and bad bites. Benefits of Invisalign clear aligner treatment include:
- Increased self-esteem during and after treatment
- Smile enhancement
- Reduction of potential TMJ issues
- Improved quality of life
- A more comfortable orthodontic treatment
- A nearly invisible orthodontic treatment
- Teeth can be straightened and facial bone developed nonsurgically at any age
Invisalign clear aligners are often a great choice for patients who are interested in a virtually invisible treatment, such as adults who want to maintain a more natural and professional appearance or teenagers who want to avoid having braces block their smile.
Your aligners are removable, allowing you to eat, drink, brush and floss normally. We do recommend that you clean your aligners regularly to prevent them from causing your teeth to appear dirty or stained. You should also wear your aligners as often as possible in order to keep your treatment on track. You will meet with our dentist regularly throughout your treatment so we can ensure your smile is progressing as planned. After your treatment is completed, our dentist will provide you with a Vivera® retainer to ensure that your treatment results can last a lifetime.
