What To Expect When You Start Treatment With Clear Aligners

Problems with the spacing and general alignment of your teeth can make you feel deeply unsatisfied with your smile. The problem can actually do more than just affect your confidence in the way you look – you can have difficulties with your bite because of crooked teeth, and it can be more difficult to prevent cavities. At our Santa Monica, CA dental practice, you can learn how treatment with Invisalign aligners, or with ClearCorrect appliances, will allow you to make valuable improvements to the alignment of your teeth! This is a modern alternative to traditional orthodontic work that can make your adjustment discreet, and easy to incorporate into your daily life.

Clear Aligners Can Make It Easier To Correct Problems With Crooked Teeth

When a person has teeth that look crowded, too far apart, or generally out of their proper places, you can be reluctant to show your teeth when you smile, and less comfortable with your appearance in general. While people who have crooked teeth are often eager to do something about the matter, life with metal braces may be less than appealing to them. If you have held off on inquiring about orthodontic work because you expected to receive metal braces, you can find that the clear aligners we offer can provide results with minimal discomfort.

We Use Advanced Digital Technology To Plan Your Procedure

Our practice is proud to make orthodontic treatment easier and more pleasant for our patients. That commitment to a better experience begins when you come in for your initial appointment. Instead of using physical impressions of your teeth to design your appliances, we rely on an iTero digital scanner to take all of the measurements that are required. This is a more comfortable alternative to taking physical impressions, and the digital approach can take remarkably accurate information!

Covering Up Alignment Flaws With Veneers

If you have relatively minor issues with poor alignment, you may be able to rely on cosmetic dental work, rather than go through an adjustment. Your dentist may be able to hide gaps, overlaps, and other flaws by placing porcelain veneers on your smile! When your veneers are set on your teeth, they can make your teeth appear straight, while also improving their color, their condition, and their shape. With this approach, you can see the results you want in less time than it would take to go through an orthodontic adjustment.
