What you need to know about Invisalign treatment in San Jose
Hollywood is a beacon of glamour, glitz, fashion, and bright, perfect smiles. Getting the perfect Hollywood smile would require several trips to a cosmetic dentist and a few years’ worth of dental bills to pay. Honestly, most Hollywood stars and starlets undergo treatment for dental caps and crowns to give the appearance of straight teeth.
For those who cannot afford the high costs of cosmetic dental procedures, there is the less expensive and more effective dental option – Invisalign.
Invisalign is a teeth straightening treatment that uses a progressive aligner (trays) system to move and straighten the teeth over the course of months and years. Unlike braces, Invisalign doesn’t use metal wires and brackets to move the teeth slowly into proper placement, it uses clear fitted trays, which have been digitally mapped and crafted to fit a patient’s teeth perfectly.
The Invisalign process begins with an initial visit to the StarBrite office where Dr. Munira will digitally measure the patient’s bite. These measurements are sent to the Invisalign laboratories where the measurements will be used to create the progressive aligners. Once the aligners are complete, the patient will wear them continuously for a period of two weeks each. There is an average of 12 aligners used in the treatment, depending on the extent of the alignment need.
Invisalign is designed to be easy, painless, and much more comfortable than braces. Invisalign is only available to teenagers and adults – patients whose permanent teeth have already grown into place.
