It’s a Great Time to Try Invisalign


3 Reasons to Choose Invisalign

Have you been thinking about a smile redesign lately? We all think about transforming our smiles now and then; after all, a bright, healthy smile with perfectly aligned teeth does wonders for our confidence.

Now’s the time to stop thinking about it; let’s make a beautiful smile your reality!

At San Mateo Center for Cosmetic Dentistry, we understand your reluctance. There are so many options for teeth straightening, including traditional metal braces, and it’s a big decision. How do you know which is best for you?

We’d like to help you evaluate your options. We offer Invisalign clear aligners at our office, and so we’re very familiar with this teeth-straightening method. Here are a few things to consider.

Clear Aligners are More Comfortable

Invisalign clear aligners are a smooth plastic that is custom-molded to your mouth. The trays fit snugly to apply gentle pressure and straighten teeth over time.

Compare this to traditional braces, where metal brackets and wires are affixed to your teeth, often causing abrasions inside your cheeks or along your gums and tongue.

Clear Aligners are Nearly Invisible

Methods have greatly improved over the years, and if you’ve shied away from teeth straightening because you wince at the very thought of metal braces, take heart!

Invisalign trays are custom made for a perfect fit, and they are nearly transparent. You can easily remove the aligners for special occasions or photos, a work/school presentation, and during meals.

Clear Aligners are Cleaner

Because the trays are so easily removed, cleaning is a breeze! Not only can you keep the aligners sparkling clean, it’s also much, much easier to brush, floss, and deep clean your teeth — especially those hard-to-reach places.

Next Steps

While there are some instances where metal braces will be more effective (such as severe overcrowding), Invisalign is a great choice for comfort, convenience and ease. There are no unsightly brackets, no abrasions, no food getting stuck in the wires.

During the course of treatment, you’ll receive a series of aligners that you switch out every two weeks. Each aligner is manufactured with exact calculations to gradually shift your teeth into place. You’ll also have the professional experience of our dental care team to monitor your progress, answer your questions, and ensure that the aligners are doing their job comfortably.
