Are you ready to make a change? Maybe transform your appearance with a new smile? The best cosmetic dentist in San Mateo provides many different services to help make-over your appearance, include teeth whitening, veneers, and implants. Our office also offers Invisalign clean braces, an effortless way to straighten teeth that is nearly invisible, comfortable, and customized just for you.
Unlike normal braces that are irritating metal bands and wires, Invisalign uses clear plastic aligners to straighten teeth. No more feeling awkward when you smile as you would with metal braces.
How Invisalign Works
Your first step to straighter teeth includes a consultation with Dr. Wong at his cosmetic dentistry office in San Mateo. He and his staff will use the iTero Element Scanner, a digital system that maps your teeth, to create a treatment plan just for you. With this 3-D scan, clear aligners are manufactured to those exact specifications for a better, more comfortable fit. Then, with a series of aligners that you switch out every few weeks, your teeth will gradually shift into place.
Before you leave, we’ll make sure your aligners are a snug, perfect fit and we’ll also answer any questions you may have. We’ll let you know how long each day you’ll need to wear your aligners and be sure you have clear expectations of how your new smile will look.
You’ll also be scheduled for regular check-ins at our office to monitor progress and pick up the next set.
The best part is that your personal care routine won’t change. You can easily remove your aligners when eating, drinking, brushing your teeth, or playing sports — and easily re-insert them again when you’re finished. They’re comfortable and nearly invisible, so you can enjoy your life as you watch your new smile take shape.
