Regardless of where you live, your smile is important. It is how you greet your friends and family, how you charm others, and how you gain professional confidence. A smile that makes you feel good about your appearance leads to better self-esteem and better relationships with your friends and family.
Often, adult patients in Los Angeles wish they had a straighter smile, but they do not want to undergo years of braces to correct the misalignment. Dr. Mungcal, of Downtown Dental, is using Invisalign for those patients to help them improve their smiles with a simple and easy process. Now instead of rough metal brackets and sharp wires, patients can wear clear aligner trays to shift their teeth gently into proper alignment.
With Invisalign, Downtown Dental patients can achieve their best smiles without the embarrassment and discomfort of traditional braces. The Invisalign treatment program uses a series of aligners, each worn for approximately two weeks at a time. With each new aligner, the teeth are shifted gently, and they move closer to their proper position. Each tray is customized for your unique circumstances. Some patients might have just one tooth that is out of place or crooked, and others need to have several teeth repositioned. Your alignment trays will work on your specific issues, to give you the smile you want.
In addition to the clear appearance of the trays, Invisalign also offers additional benefits. For example, the trays are more comfortable. You won’t have to worry about cutting your cheek on a bracket or having a wire that breaks. Additionally, the aligners are removable. This means you can eat what you want without having to avoid sticky or hard foods. You can also remove the aligners to brush your teeth to keep the trays clean and prevent bacterial overgrowth.
If you look in the mirror and wish your smile were straighter, or if you refrain from smiling to avoid the embarrassment of showing your misaligned teeth, call the team at Downtown Dental today to schedule a consultation and find out if Invisalign trays are right for you.
