Who doesn’t want that perfect smile? Many are not sure that they want to endure the discomfort and appearance of metal braces to get it though. Due to advancements in dental technology, there are other choices now available. Dr. Don Mungcal and the skilled staff at Downtown Dental invite you to learn about the Invisalign system, a clear braces alternative to traditional metal braces.
Invisalign provides comfort and superior results to patients with mild to moderate orthodontic needs. The treatment is easy to complete because it is all handled in our Los Angeles office, with no outside referrals or consultations. With all of our care, we provide effective services that our patients trust and expect, while saving them time and inconvenience. Via computer technology, clear aligners are created based on the individual’s dental structure. The personalized set of aligners is provided to the patient, along with the plan to follow in between dental visits. Working through a progression of aligners according to this plan results in gradual change to the alignment of the teeth. Follow-up visits are normally required only every four to six weeks, just to verify everything is progressing according to plan.
Patients are able to experience satisfaction with their appearance during treatment. This can be particularly important for patients in professional lines of work who are often in the public eye. Because they are clear, the Invisalign appliances are virtually unnoticeable, achieving results and reinforcing patient confidence. Results may be faster with Invisalign than with traditional metal braces as well, offering yet another benefit.
Invisalign patients are able to maintain better oral health because the aligners are removable. The aligners can be removed for eating or drinking, as well for brushing and flossing. If the smile could also use some brightening, we offer whitening options that may be done simultaneously! Patients find the cost of treatment is appealing also, offering many more benefits while still having a comparable price to metal braces.
If you are experiencing crowded teeth, a bite that doesn’t line up, or uneven spacing of your teeth, schedule a consultation with us to determine if the Invisalign system is the solution for you. Our patients receive personalized, fast, efficient, and experienced care in our office that is both easily accessible and comfortable. For people who live or work in and around Los Angeles, Downtown Dental is your trusted Invisalign provider.
