Get a perfect smile, effortlessly, in Glendale CA with clear aligners
Bright Smiles Dental Studio has developed loyal patients through the years with a focus on smile makeovers that use the latest technology. One of the most exciting developments in dental technologies has come courtesy of removable alternatives to braces to straighten teeth. You can get a perfect smile with Glendale CA Clear Aligners, designed and monitored by Dr. Carlos Garcia and the dental studio team.
Elements of a “perfect smile”
Dentistry is really a combination of science and art. Our smile makeovers generally address all the key features that can either help or hinder the attractiveness of your teeth and gums. Patients may come to us with very stained, chipped, and crooked and crowded teeth. Our role is to safely treat discoloration, stains, and misalignment, and we have everything from in-office and at-home whitening to bonding and veneers to address cosmetic texture, color, and spacing issues.
Misalignment is both a cosmetic and functional issue. A poor bite can not only affect how you feel about your smile and looks, but it can also affect chewing efficiency, and give rise to all sorts of problems – from headaches to neck pain.
Aligners keep getting better all the time
What started way back in the 1940s as an adjunct to conventional braces, clear aligners are now an entire category of powerful straightening — without all the drawbacks associated with traditional “metal mouth” orthodontic appliances. There are dozens of different types of clear aligners available to the public nowadays, and Dr. Garcia is skilled at selecting proven, comfortable, safe, and truly transparent aligner trays.
With trays that are customized to your specifications and needs, you can restore or finally achieve a perfect smile. Treating crowded, crooked, poorly spaced teeth is one of the most dramatic ways to improve your appearance. Because, even for those patients who otherwise have “perfect smiles” with bright, healthy teeth and gums, crooked teeth can make them look older and less vibrant than they actually are and can otherwise detract from beautiful smile features as well as other beautiful facial features.
Clear aligners achieve such perfection in a natural way; some cosmetic treatments when in less skilled hands (such as porcelain veneers or teeth bleaching) can cause the teeth to look “too white” or “too perfect,” to the point of being unnatural. Straight teeth look great on everyone, and there is no cause for concern that treatment will result in a smile that doesn’t look quite right.
An attractive process
The process of getting straighter teeth with aligners also emphasizes a natural appearance. Since aligner trays are made from a high-tech smooth, clear plastic you must look very closely in the mirror to notice them. That means others, too, can’t see your orthodontic appliance. Plus, since all you see are your teeth peeking through the transparent plastic, you get to enjoy the gradual improvements in the position of your teeth. Braces treatment has historically not allowed for this, because the metal wires and brackets get in the way of seeing your teeth when you smile. This characteristic helps to lift your spirits throughout treatment. You’ll want to maintain good oral hygiene and adhere to the instructions associated with aligner treatment because you’re motivated by the great results that you can actually see throughout the process!
Today’s clear aligner technology makes it even easier to stay on track with treatment, because:
- The trays easily slip right over your teeth, so you can take them off and on and remove them for easy brushing, flossing, and eating
- As a removable option, aligners only require a few short visits to Bright Smiles Dental Studio every six weeks or so (compare this to braces, which require that the dentist adjust and tighten the braces so treatment can progress, and a hygienist must clean your teeth and gums, too, as braces-wearers are decay- and disease-prone)
- Trays are designed to be low-maintenance – wear them for 22 hours a day to assure straightening stays on track, and rinse and brush them gently with a toothbrush every night so they stay fresh and clean
Sticky or hard foods aren’t off-limits with clear aligner trays that are designed like transparent replicas of your teeth. Likewise, the plastic is smooth – no hard surfaces or wires that can break and irritate your mouth.
As you can see, the process of getting a perfect smile can also be perfectly comfortable and easy. Bright Smiles Dental Studio’s advanced answers to conventional treatments fit patients’ preferences and busy lifestyles. Call (818) 290-8788 to schedule your clear aligners consultation.
