People who live in San Jose, California, know how important it is to have a gorgeous smile. Your smile is the first thing people will notice about you, and when you’re confident in your smile, you put your best self forward.
Moreover, people who smile more have been known to be happier and more successful. If you have struggled with crooked teeth, one solution for you may be Invisalign clear teeth aligners.
Besides affecting how your self-confidence and how your smile looks, other serious issues can arise when you have crooked teeth or malocclusion –
You can fix these problems with traditional orthodontia, but some people can benefit from Invisalign clear aligners.
Invisalign clear aligners work the same way traditional metal braces do by using gentle but consistent force to move your teeth to a straighter position. However, unlike metal braces, Invisalign is discreet and comfortable, with a shorter treatment time than traditional braces.
You will often see Invisalign referred to as clear braces. However, Invisalign clear aligners use zero metal.
Invisalign clear aligners look similar to the mouthguards that athletes wear. Yet, Invisalign is much thinner. Also, you can remove your Invisalign to eat and clean your teeth, which gives them a huge advantage over metal braces.
First, you’ll visit your dentist to see if Invisalign is a good fit for you. Once it’s determined that Invisalign can straighten your teeth, your dental care team will take a detailed image of your teeth and mouth. The images are sent to a lab where your aligners are made.
Lab techs will create a detailed map of your teeth, so you’ll actually be able to see how your teeth will look before you ever wear your aligners.
