What is Invisalign?

Offering a subtle alternative to braces, Invisalign is an orthodontic treatment system that uses a series of clear, plastic aligners to correct crooked teeth and align your bite. This modern alternative to braces can improve your smile without the discomfort and aesthetic concerns of traditional braces.

Patients at Viva Smile prefer Invisalign because, unlike traditional braces, most people don’t notice Invisalign aligners during normal interactions.

Invisalign also gives you the flexibility to remove your aligners so you can enjoy your favorite foods, brush your teeth and floss, or leave them at home for a special occasion. However, to ensure you receive the most effective treatment, you should wear your Invisalign trays for at least 20 hours a day.

What are the benefits of Invisalign?

Viva Smile offers Invisalign to help patients achieve the smile they desire. In addition to providing a subtle appearance, Invisalign has several other benefits.

Benefits of Invisalign

  • Durable and clear aligners
  • Easy wear and removal
  • Faster than metal braces
  • No pain and irritation
  • Fewer and shorter dental visits
  • Effective and accurate results

Because Invisalign aligners are made of plastic rather than metal, they don't cause any of the typical irritation, cuts and scrapes that result from wearing traditional braces.

How does Invisalign work?

Viva Smile uses Invisalign to treat dental conditions like crowded teeth, overbites, underbites, crossbites, crooked teeth, and gaps in your teeth.

When you arrive for your appointment at Viva Smile, your dentist evaluates your mouth to assess your overall dental condition and determine the best treatment for your teeth.

Upon deciding that Invisalign is the right option for you, your dentist creates a treatment plan specific to your needs. They begin by taking digital scans and x-rays of your teeth to create the right fit for your aligners. You will receive your trays two weeks later and come in for your first appointment. The team will explain the Invisalign journey and place composite attachments on your teeth to speed up the treatment process.

After this, they’ll book appointments every 6 to 8 weeks to replace your Invisalign trays and continue shifting your teeth into alignment. Once you complete your treatment plan, Dr. Gohar or Dr. Karen will fit your teeth for a retainer to help you maintain the results of your straightened teeth.

To find out if Invisalign is the right option for you, book a complimentary consultation at Viva Smile in Van Nuys or Granada Hills today. Our Platinum Invisalign Providers in Los Angeles, California will get you the best results in the quickest time.
