Invisalign

Straighten your teeth without any one knowing with Invisalign

  • Invisalign is nearly invisible.
  • Invisalign is removable.You can eat and drink anything you want during your treatment, and you won’t have to worry about embarrassing food particles getting caught in your braces. You can also brush and floss normally to maintain good oral hygiene.
  • Invisalign is comfortable.Thereare no metal brackets or wires to cause mouth irritations. Also, because you don’t have braces to be tightened, you spend less time in the doctor’s office getting adjustments.

How Does Invisalign Work?

During your initial consultation, Dr. Amruta will examine and measure your teeth to determine if you are a good candidate for Invisalign.

If you are a good candidate for Invisalign, numerous pictures will be taken of your teeth and mouth. The Invisalign system utilizes 3-D computer imaging. From the pictures that are taken of your teeth and mouth, you will be able to view your 3-D virtual treatment plan from beginning to end.Watch as your smile is transformed, and view how your teeth will look at the end of the process, before you even begin.

A series of custom-made aligners are then produced for your mouth. Aligners are clear plastic molds of your teeth that are virtually invisible when worn.

Aligners are like contact lenses for your teeth. Most people will wear an aligner on their top teeth and an aligner on their bottom teeth. The aligners are designed to incrementally move your teeth by applying pressure to different teeth. After you have worn this set (of upper and lower aligners) for approximately two weeks, you will receive a new set of aligners to wear for the next two weeks. You will continue replacing your aligners with the next in the series until your teeth have moved to their final position. During this process, you will see Dr. Siman or an orthodontist approximately every 6 weeks, (usually after you have worn 3 sets of aligners) to make sure your treatment is progressing to schedule. Because everyone’s teeth are different, the length of treatment and cost will vary from person to person.

Gapped Teeth Solutions

Beauty comes in all sorts of shapes and sizes, but one feature that all beautiful people share is a gorgeous smile – and if you suffer from gapped teeth, you may feel like your natural grin doesn’t quite measure up. Of course, celebrities like Madonna, Lauren Hutton and True Blood’s Anna Paquin have proven that gapped teeth can be endearingly lovely too, but if you would prefer a perfect, gap-free smile, you’ll be happy to hear that you have several options to choose from. Here are a few of the most common solutions to the problem of gapped teeth:

  • Braces: That’s right – traditional metal braces are one of the best methods for straightening teeth. Since gapped teeth result when there is too much room in between each tooth, braces work by gradually moving the teeth themselves closer together over time. While braces offer an effective, time-tested tactic for perfecting teeth, they also have several drawbacks. Most notably, they can be uncomfortable – especially after they’ve been tightened – and they are highly conspicuous, which may be of special concern to adults who consider the look of metal braces too “juvenile.”
  • Invisalign: If you’re considering braces but you don’t want metal in your mouth, consider trying these “invisible braces” instead. While the Invisalign system works in much the same fashion as regular braces, they rely on a flexible, see-through aligner instead of metal brackets and wires. In addition to being virtually undetectable when worn, Invisalign aligners are also removable for additional comfort and easier cleaning.
  • Porcelain veneers: This is the perhaps the most sophisticated option for fixing gapped teeth. While braces and Invisalign both rely on straightening and moving your natural teeth, veneers instead work by removing a bit of existing tooth enamel and placing a thin porcelain structure that mimics the feel and appearance of natural teeth over the top. This will give you a realistic – yet perfectly straight and gap-free – smile, without months of tightening and adjustments.
  • Lumineers: Like veneers, these are placed over your natural teeth for instant results; however, they are much thinner than traditional veneers, and don’t require removal of natural tooth structure. Lumineers are also reversible, and can be installed in just two visits
