Enjoy clear braces for teeth straightening in Palo Alto area practice
While patients often think of braces as unsightly metal brackets and wires covering the teeth for months—sometimes years—this isn’t the only way to achieve teeth straightening. Now, patients can ask their dentist in the Palo Alto, CA area about another option, such as clear braces. Clear braces for straightening the smile may sound like a dream come true, and it is a popular way for patients to achieve the smile of their dreams!
What are clear braces?
Clear braces use an aligner tray therapy to achieve the same results as traditional orthodontic work. Dr. Shivani Gupta of Peninsula Dental Implant Center provides a specific brand known as Invisalign. Invisalign orthodontics have been used for years to help children, teenagers, and adults straighten their teeth without feeling self-conscious about wearing metal appliances over their smiles. With Invisalign, patients can discreetly improve their smile by using clear plastic trays that snap over the teeth and dental arch. The gentle movement of the teeth occurs over several months as patients progress through their treatment.
How does Invisalign work?
Invisalign uses a series of customized trays that patients wear at least 20 hours a day to reposition their teeth slowly. The number of trays in a patient’s series will depend on the severity of misalignment. During an initial consultation appointment with Dr. Shivani Gupta, patients will first be evaluated to assess if they are good candidates for Invisalign. Then, 3D digital impressions are taken and sent to the Invisalign laboratories to form several trays. When the trays are completed, patients return to the dental office to pick them up and learn how to use them. Patients wear each tray, in order, for two weeks at a time as they progress through treatment. By the time the final tray is worn, patients will have obtained their brand-new smile—and self-confidence!
What is the cost of Invisalign?
Many patients will find that the cost of this treatment is in line and comparable to that of traditional braces, making them the “clear choice” for many of our patients. Patients can work with our front office team to determine if their dental insurance plan can cover Invisalign. Any remaining out-of-pocket expenses can be financed as needed at our facility. We want to make sure that Invisalign is affordable and attainable for all budgets to ensure everyone gets the opportunity to achieve their dream smiles!
