How Invisalign clear aligners can transform your smile
If you are in Dublin, California, and are looking to straighten your teeth, you will be pleased to learn about Invisalign clear aligners offered at StarBrite Dental. Invisalign is an innovative treatment for correcting malocclusion and mild misalignment issues. The clear aligners use gentle but consistent force to move your teeth to a straighter position. You can achieve the same results as you would with traditional metal braces, but that’s where the similarity ends.
Invisalign treatment is sometimes referred to as clear braces or invisible teeth straightening. However, no metal wires or brackets are involved at all — your “braces” are actually aligners that are virtually invisible. Similar in appearance to a sports mouthguard, these aligners are much thinner and more discreet.
What orthodontic issues can Invisalign fix?
Invisalign clear aligners are a great fix for many orthodontic issues, such as:
- Gaps between teeth
- Crooked teeth
- Crowded teeth
- Open bite
The Invisalign process
The process for Invisalign is incredibly straightforward and efficient. After determining you are a good candidate and to fit you for clear aligners, we will take detailed 3D images of your teeth to be sent to a laboratory that creates your customized aligners.
Lab technicians use advanced computer software to create a virtual map of your teeth at the beginning of your treatment. This map is expanded to a step-by-step animation that shows how your teeth will move as treatment progresses. So, before you even wear your first set of Invisalign clear aligners, you can see your entire smile transformation on a computer screen right in your dentist’s office!
How long does treatment take?
You will wear your Invisalign aligners every day for at least 20 to 22 hours and only remove them for meals and when cleaning your teeth. The treatment period will take between 6 to 18 months, depending on the severity of your misalignment.
