Like many adults that desire a straighter smile, you probably considered braces but simply resorted not to undergo orthodontic treatment. Bulky braces can be inconvenient, not to mention that the metal wires are anything but discreet.
If this is the case, you should consider Invisalign. Not only is the Invisalign treatment virtually invisible, it is also convenient. Millions of adults are turning to these clear, custom-made, removable aligners as an alternative to bulky, metal braces- straightening your smile without anyone even noticing that you are wearing them!
How Invisalign Works:
Like any dental procedure, you'll first visit our San Jose office for a consultation with one of our dental experts. If Invisalign is right for you, we'll determine your Invisalign treatment plan. Using advanced 3D computer technology, a series of Invisalign aligners will be custom-crafted to perfectly fit your teeth at each phase of your treatment. Every few weeks, switch out your old aligners for new aligners to gradually and comfortably shift the teeth to their desired position. Whether your teeth are crowded, crooked, have spaces between them or have shifted since wearing braces, you'll have a reason to smile at the end of your Invisalign treatment.
For most patients, the Invisalign treatment can be completed in less than one year. Keep in mind that the length of treatment will vary for each patient, so it's important to speak with The Dental Dimensions about how your expectations and goals fit into Invisalign.
Change Your Smile. Not Your Life.
Invisalign aligners are clear and less noticeable than metal, wire braces. Whether you're at work, prom or spending time with friends, you'll always feel confident with Invisalign.
Invisalign aligners are removable which gives you the flexibility to remove your aligners for special occasions or just to eat dinner.
Hard, metal braces can irritate your gums. Invisalign trays are made of soft plastic. They are comfortable to wear and the risk of cutting your oral tissues is less likely.
Wire braces make reaching the entire tooth and gum with your toothbrush and floss a challenging task. With Invisalign, you can remove your aligners to brush and floss normally, reducing your risk of tooth decay and gum disease.
