Curious about Invisalign?


Invisalign Los Angeles - SmileView App

Have you ever wanted a fabulous smile with lovely straight teeth, but didn’t want to get traditional metal braces? Traditional metal braces are painful – the metal wires and brackets can cut your gums and the inside of your mouth. When the wires are tightened, it can be painful! Let’s face it–metal braces are unattractive, and they seem to take a long time to give you a straight, beautiful smile.

Instead of using metal brackets and wires to straighten and realign teeth, Los Angeles dentist Dr. Mungcal at Downtown Dental recommends using Invisalign. Invisalign is an advanced technique in which clear aligner trays are used to move the teeth slowly yet effectively to a desired position. It is a different medium in orthodontics, which allows patients to experience a straighter smile without the embarrassment, pain, and inconvenience of traditional metal braces.

Why Invisalign?

Many patients prefer to avoid the look and feel of traditional braces, with their wires and brackets that can cause discomfort and self-consciousness.
Not only are Invisalign aligners removable, they are made of strong, clear plastic that can barely be seen in the smile.
These custom-fit aligners are comfortable, easy to clean, and allow the patient to fully brush and floss teeth without wires and brackets in the way.
They can be taken off for special engagements such as dates, graduations, weddings, and any other special occasion. Invisalign treatments also require fewer visits to your Los Angeles dentist, often six to eight weeks between appointments.
The advantages of Invisalign over traditional metal braces are quite amazing.
While you are getting beautiful, straight teeth, you can smile, laugh, and have your photo taken with confidence. Nobody knows you are wearing braces but you!
During your initial Invisalign consultation, several photos of your mouth will be taken and displayed on a screen. Los Angeles dentist Dr. Mungcal can co-diagnose with you and give you the information you need to make an informed decision about the proper treatment you want and need. You have the opportunity to tell us what you are not happy about with your teeth, and at the same time, we can give our professional advice as far as what we can improve, what we recommend, and what we estimate the length of treatment might be.
The Los Angeles dental team at Downtown Dental is a preferred provider of Invisalign treatments. Our Los Angeles patients come to us because we are very experienced using the Invisalign orthodontic treatment, and we attend courses regularly to keep the team up to date with ongoing changes to the technology. Los Angeles dentist Dr. Mungcal has been completing treatments for over twenty years, using aligners for tooth re-positioning.
