Adults seeking a straighter, more attractive smile now have a clear alternative to traditional metal braces: Invisalign. This revolutionary method of teeth straightening makes it simpler than ever to achieve the smile you’ve always wanted.
At Smiles4OC in Costa Mesa, California, Drs. Thomas Rolfes, Christina Do, and Timothy Rolfes are dental professionals who can provide safe, effective, and affordable invisible braces that can discretely straighten your smile.
Our precise method involves utilizing a series of clear plastic aligners that are comfortable to wear and graduated in their strength. With as few as ten aligners, we can gently move your teeth with low pressure according to a personalized plan.
You’ll wear these aligners day and night, every day, removing them only to eat and brush your teeth. Their discreet design ensures that others won’t notice that you’re straightening your teeth, allowing you to speak and smile naturally.
Invisalign may not be suitable for severely crowded or misaligned teeth; conversely, traditional orthodontics may be better for children and young teens whose mouths are still developing.
If you’re looking for a clear alternative to braces, inquire with our team to discover if Invisalign is the right choice for you. The best candidates usually have mild to moderate teeth misalignments or bites.
During your first visit, we evaluate your suitability for Invisalign treatment. Once we confirm you’re a good candidate, we will take a 3D digital scan of your mouth. We then send the scan to the Invisalign lab, where they will create personalized aligners explicitly tailored to your unique dental needs using advanced computer imaging technology.
In approximately three weeks, we’ll provide your initial aligner trays and simple instructions for using the upcoming aligner sets. We’ll conduct periodic check-ins, usually every six weeks, employing advanced ClinCheck® computer technology to track your progress. This cutting-edge system offers an exact 3-D representation of the changes in your teeth resulting from the controlled and precisely timed forces exerted by the aligners.
Achieving the beautiful, straight smile you’ve always wanted is a reality and achievable surprisingly quickly! The transformation is so impressive that you won’t believe the difference when comparing your before and after photos. Our patients frequently express their satisfaction with the outcome achieved through proper compliance and are eager to share their smiles with others. With Invisalign, patients who once felt self-conscious about their teeth can feel confident about the appearance of their smile.
Metal brackets and wires glued to the teeth are often uncomfortable and unsightly. Invisalign offers a discreet solution for adults who want to look their best throughout treatment.
Not only does it remain undetectable, but it also requires fewer appointments, ensures better oral health, and is comparable in cost with traditional braces. If you are considering solutions for realigning your smile, we suggest speaking to a professional to consider the advantages and disadvantages of this revolutionary option versus more traditional means.
