If you love the idea of a straighter smile, but not the idea of braces, Invisalign might be the perfect solution for you! Invisalign uses a series of clear aligners to shift your teeth gently into alignment. Even better, East Austin patients generally finish up their treatment within a year – about half the time many patients wear traditional braces. At Enamel Dentistry Saltillo, we make dental care fresh, fun, and completely focused on you! We offer the latest dental technology, a fun atmosphere, a fabulous comfort menu, and an abundance of good vibes that will leave you grinning from ear to ear. Sip some beer or wine, check out a little Netflix, and we’ll get to work on helping you get the straight smile you’ve always wanted. Schedule your appointment with Dr. Gulati, our Invisalign dentist, today!
Ok, keeping it real here: we get why some patients don’t want to get traditional metal braces. Braces can be uncomfortable, bulky, and very visible. Then there are other issues, like staining, hidden cavities, avoiding certain foods, longer amounts of time spent on oral hygiene… They can be a bit of a pain in the tooth! Fortunately, Invisalign is very effective for many types of alignment issues – without the hassles that come with metal braces. The clear aligners are nearly invisible and completely removable. Pop them out to eat, drink, brush, and floss – then pop ‘em back in after. Oral hygiene is easier, you can continue to eat your favorite foods, and you have a discreet treatment that’s barely noticeable. Plus, a new straight smile! Sounds pretty awesome, right?
Although it’s easy to focus on the cosmetic side of straightening your teeth, there are also health benefits. Teeth that are crowded or have gaps are more difficult to brush and floss, which means they’re at a higher risk of cavities and gum disease. By using Invisalign, you get the best of both worlds – health and cosmetic benefits! One thing that’s important to know is that although the aligners are removable, you do need to wear them for most of the day to be effective. Your aligners will be custom created for your mouth using iTero digital impressions, so they’ll fit like a glove. You’ll wear one set for about two weeks, then switch to the next set in the series. After about a year, you’ll have a brand-new smile!
Invisalign is a great option for most East Austin patients, but there are some alignment issues that it may not be suitable for. Schedule an appointment with Dr. Gulati, and he’ll take a look! If you’re not a good candidate, he’ll be happy to tell you about other options. And if you’re interested in any other types of cosmetic treatments, we also offer whitening, veneers, bonding, and complete cosmetic makeovers. Make your smile healthier and look its best!
