San Francisco Invisalign Dentist Transforms Smiles Discreetly

Many people want to improve the appearance of their smiles. It is very common that dental patients want to straighten their smiles, or close gaps between their teeth. One of the most popular treatments used to achieve these results is Invisalign treatment.

Our San Francisco Invisalign dentists have helped numerous people achieve their dream smiles with Invisalign. So let’s learn more about how this treatment works!

Invisalign orthodontic treatment does not utilize metal brackets and wires (like conventional orthodontic treatment). Rather, Invisalign straightens teeth using clear plastic aligners. These aligners fit over the patient’s teeth, applying pressure to the teeth so that they will move into better alignment.

In order to keep moving your teeth, you will switch to a new aligner every two week or so. Every aligner moves your teeth a little more, so that, over time, your smile is perfected.

Invisalign is also different from traditional orthodontics because these aligners are totally removable. In fact, you will take them out multiple times a day to eat, to drink substances other than water, and to clean your teeth and gums. Many people report that it is much easier to keep their smiles clean using Invisalign rather than metal braces.

When your Invisalign aligners are in place over your teeth, they will allow your natural teeth to show through. Consequently, Invisalign is a much more discreet orthodontic option than metal braces.

As you can see, there are many advantages to using Invisalign treatment. If you want to straighten your teeth, close gaps in your smile, or improve bite alignment, Invisalign may be a good treatment option for you.
