Invisalign and Whitening For a Beautiful Smile
Whiter Teeth For a
More Vibrant Smile
Whitening procedures have effectively restored the smile of people with stained, dull, or discolored teeth.The darker tissue of your teeth, the dentin, can become exposed as the outer layer of enamel is worn away by the effects of aging or things like caffeine and tobacco.
Food particles are naturally attracted to a tooth's enamel by a certain protein. Products like coffee and tea, berries and soy sauce are notorious for staining teeth. Over time, teeth actually become more absorbent and vulnerable to staining from food and other substances.
More and more people today are choosing tooth-whitening procedures to reverse the effects of aging and abuse from food and tobacco stains.
Some commercially available “whitening toothpastes” can be somewhat effective at removing stains and making teeth a few shades brighter. However, many of these products have abrasive substances that can actually wear away your tooth's enamel.
Professional whitening is considered to be the most effective and safest method; done properly, tooth whitening can last as long as five years.
Without Visible Metal Braces
Another cosmetic concern people often have with their smile is they would like straighter teeth, but they don't want to wear visible metal braces.
Invisalign's invisible, removable, and comfortable aligners will give you the beautiful straight teeth you've always wanted. And best of all, no one can tell you're wearing them. Invisalign is great for adults and teenagers.
What is Invisalign?
Invisalign is the invisible way to straighten your teeth without braces.
Invisalign uses a series of clear, removable aligners to straighten your teeth without metal wires or brackets
Invisalign has been proven effective in clinical research and in orthodontic practices nationwide.
How Does Invisalign Work?
You wear each set of aligners for about two weeks, removing them only to eat, drink, brush, and floss.
As you replace each aligner with the next in the series, your teeth will move little by little, week by week until they have straightened to their final position
You'll visit us about once every six weeks to ensure that your treatment is progressing as planned.
Total treatment time averages 9-15 months and the average number of aligners during treatment is between 18-30, but both will vary from case to case.
