San Carlos dentist offers Invisalign to straighten teeth discreetly
Palo Alto area patients who are struggling with an imperfect smile may want to speak to Dr. Shivani Gupta about solutions for straightening their teeth. When the idea of straightening, the smile is considered, many patients believe their only option is the traditional metal bracket and wire braces. Luckily, there are alternatives such as Invisalign.
Invisalign is a method of straightening teeth without brackets and wires. Invisalign focuses on improving the alignment of the smile with crystal clear aligners. These trays are custom-made for patients in a series, and each tray is worn for approximately two weeks before moving to the next one. Over the course of treatment, teeth are gently repositioned for better function and beauty.
Many patients choose Invisalign because it is:
- Easy to use
- Simple to clean
Patients love the idea behind using Invisalign as a way of enhancing their smile while not feeling self-conscious about their appearance in the meantime. The trays are made of transparent plastic and are worn day and night to address misalignment in the bite and dental arch. They are practically indistinguishable from the natural smile while patients go about their day. Patients can remove their trays to eat, drink, brush, and floss. The best candidates for treatment are those with mild to moderate misalignment of the dental arch and bite.
