Your smile is the first thing people notice about you and leaves a lasting impression. Patients with crooked teeth often feel more self conscious and smile less often. Crooked teeth feel more uncomfortable, are harder to keep clean, and develop cavities more easily.
Everyone wants straight, beautiful teeth, but for some of our patients in the La Mesa area, the thought of wearing metal braces for two years stops them from seeking the dental help they need. At A Shop For Smiles, we are proud to offer Invisalign clear braces as an alternative to traditional braces. With our teeth straightening options, we can accommodate all of our patients and provide every one of our patients with the straight stunning smile they’ve always wanted.
What is Invisalign?
Invisalign is an alternative to conventional braces that uses a series of plastic aligners instead of metal or wires.
Patients who choose Invisalign enjoy many benefits including:
- The aligners are custom-made for each patient to fit over their teeth perfectly.
- Each set of Invisalign braces is made with a clear plastic that is virtually invisible. You will be able to straighten your teeth without anyone knowing that you’re wearing braces.
- The aligners are completely comfortable and, unlike regular braces, Invisalign braces are removable. Regular braces come with restrictions and special care requirements. Invisalign patients can brush their teeth normally and still enjoy all the foods they love.
- Invisalign requires fewer appointments and takes less time. Typically, traditional braces can take up to two years to straighten a patient’s teeth. With Invisalign, our patients in La Mesa and surrounding areas can enjoy all the benefits that come with beautiful, straight teeth in nine months to a year.
How does Invisalign Work?
Before your treatment, Dr. Hagstrom will have a thorough consultation with you to discuss your options and treatment plan. Once your aligners have been created, you will switch them out every two weeks while your teeth continue to straighten. Each aligner adjusts your teeth a little bit more until they are finally in their proper position. Our Invisalign process is fast, simple, and completely effective. Dr. Hagstrom has over 13 years of experience repositioning teeth using Invisalign and can provide you with results you’ll love.
