These days, it’s more important than ever for you to feel comfortable about your smile. However, for some people, that isn’t always a possibility because their teeth are crooked or misaligned. As a result, they may feel shy, embarrassed and uncomfortable showing off their personality and what makes them so special.
If this applies to you, it’s time to stop letting your teeth hold you back from having the self-esteem that you deserve. To take action today, schedule a meeting with Dr. Victor Lee.
Dr. Lee is an experienced Invisalign provider, successfully treating every type of malocclusion.
What exactly is Invisalign?
During your consultation, Dr. Lee may tell you that you are a good candidate for Invisalign. If you’ve heard the name before, but you weren’t really clear what Invisalign could do for you, you’ll be excited to discover that this type of treatment can straighten your teeth without brackets, bands or wires.
Your chompers will slowly shift your teeth into place over time by using custom aligners that are virtually invisible. The top and bottom trays are made of smooth plastic so that they fit comfortably. Every week, you switch out aligners.
In most cases, Invisalign is worn anywhere from 20 to 22 hours per day. You’ll remove them when you eat, brush and floss your teeth. One of the many great things about wearing the aligners is that they are easy to clean and don’t require you to accommodate any dietary restrictions!
How long will my treatment last?
On average, people who are being treated using Invisalign wear their trays for around 6-18 months. You’ll see your orthodontist in every 2-3 months.
At Burlingame Orthodontics, we understand that you are busy. We’ll work around your schedule so that coming in for appointments is convenient for you.
