Invisalign ® braces are clear plastic shells that are worn over the teeth to give you the straight smile traditional braces would have given you, but without the associated brackets and wires. Invisalign ® clear braces can correct the mild to moderate spacing and crowding problems that you may have.
Many people would like to have the beautiful, straight teeth that braces would provide. Unfortunately, the idea of having the metal brackets and wires that are used with traditional braces keep many individuals from getting the straight teeth they want.
With a series of specially designed removable plastic shells, called aligners, Invisalign ® can shift your teeth into the straight positions that you've always wanted. Unlike traditional braces, there is no metal permanently bonded to your teeth. Also, since Invisalign ® clear braces are removable, you don't have to make any changes in your diet.
Benefiting from Invisalign ® braces begins with scheduling an initial consultation with Dr. Sands in Beverly Hills, California. During your initial consultation, you can discuss with Dr. Sands what results you would like to see from Invisalign ®. Dr. Sands will determine if Invisalign ® is the right procedure for you and make an impression of your teeth if it is.
The impression is then sent to Align Technology with specific instructions for what changes are to be made to your teeth. Then a 3D computer is used to create a series of aligners that will gradually shift your teeth into position.
When cosmetic dentist Dr. Sands receives the aligners, he will invite you back to his cosmetic dentistry office, where you will be outfitted with your aligners. Each Invisalign ® aligner has been designed so that it is worn for a couple weeks, and then replaced by the next aligner in the series.
Invisalign ® aligners are worn throughout the day, and can be removed while you are eating. Because they are made out of clear plastic, they are virtually invisible to everyone. Also, Invisalign ® provides you with proven results without having to commit to years of having metal in your mouth.
