Invisalign® the Best Option for Teeth

Invisalign® is by far the best solution for mild to moderate crooked teeth. All you have to do is read the reviews and you’ll quickly learn that one of the oldest removable tooth straightening systems is also the most reliable.

Don’t DIY Clear Braces

While you may be attracted to the DIY versions that you find online, those clear braces could actually do more harm than good. In addition, they could cause permanent damage.

Sending in a picture of your teeth and an impression isn’t the best way to order customized clear plastic braces. Furthermore, your progress isn’t monitored by a cosmetic dentist in Laguna Hills.

As a result, this could have harmful effects, especially if you weren’t a good candidate for removable braces in the first place.

What is Invisalign®?

According to Saddleback Dentistry, Invisalign® uses a serious of clear plastic aligners that are custom made to gradually move your teeth into the desired position.

Depending on your situation you will be prescribed a number of aligners that you’ll replace every seven to 14 days. This is dependent on your Invisalign® blueprint.

During your treatment time you’ll wear your clear plastic braces for 22 hours every day.  The only time you’ll remove them is when you eat a meal and brush and floss your teeth. It is imperative that you stay the course. If you don’t, your treatment time might be impeded.

Treatment time for Invisalign® can take as little as six weeks. However, most patients see final results in 12 to 18 months. This is much quicker than conventional wires and brackets. Standard braces can take up to 24 months.

Is Everyone a Good Candidate?

While most people with mild to moderate crooked teeth are great candidates for Invisalign®, patients with severe over or under bites or wide spaces between teeth may fare better with conventional braces.

In addition, people who have pegged teeth or teeth that are too short may not be suitable for clear braces either.

What is Invisalign® Good For?

  • Crowding
  • Spacing
  • Mild to Moderate Bite Problems
  • Underbites
  • Overbites
  • Crossbites
  • Openbites
  • Small Spaces Between Teeth
  • Rotated Teeth

Professional Teeth Whitening for Results

Professional teeth whitening in Laguna Hills is the best defense against stains and is much safer than products you find at your local pharmacy.

A white and bright smile is one of the first things people notice when you walk into a room.

Saddleback Dentistry agrees that a smile that is dull, brown, yellow or lifeless won’t do you any favors and that is where professional teeth whitening comes in.

Why Professional is Best

Dr. Dean Garcia from Saddleback Dentistry has seen the results of too much over the counter whitening products. Unfortunately some people use far too much product too often. At best, this causes sensitivity, at worse; it could damage the enamel on your teeth.

Whitening strips, polishes, rinses and one size fits all whitening trays are more dangerous than they look and should be left on the shelf.

Professional teeth whitening products contain a higher amount of active bleaching ingredient. However, the process is monitored providing you with the safest experience possible.

What is Professional Teeth Whitening?

Dr. Ryan Conkle explains that professional teeth whitening is a process that is monitored from the beginning. Best of all, those trays that you wear are actually custom made to fit your teeth.

Your custom fitted trays are worn for about 2 to four hours every night for up to six weeks. While you may feel a bit of tooth sensitivity, it will be nothing like what you would experience with over the counter one size fits all tooth whitening trays.

Is it Right for Everyone?

While this is a great solution for most people, it isn’t right for everyone. For example, if you have restored teeth, such as tooth colored fillings, dental crowns, dental implants or dental bridges, teeth whitening will not work. Teeth that are gray or brown colored may not have good results either.

If you have interior or intrinsic staining, talk to your cosmetic dentist in Southern California as you may be more suited to porcelain veneers, cosmetic dental bonding, dental implants or other types of dental restorations.

If you already have restorations that aren’t looking as good as they used to, schedule an appointment for a cosmetic dentistry evaluation in Laguna Hills.
