Invisalign in Lakewood, CA

Everyone wants a beautiful smile, but not everyone is willing to get metal braces. We put off having the smiles we want because we feel too old for traditional braces. Or we simply don’t want to draw unwanted attention to our imperfections. But Dr. Nancy William along with Dr. Abraam Girgis of Lakewood Smiles Dentistry offers a way to keep your confidence and get that perfect smile.

What is Invisalign?

Invisalign is a series of removable and nearly invisible aligners that gradually straighten your teeth – like traditional braces, but without the metal. Since the system is removable, you can brush and floss as usual to keep up with your oral hygiene. Plus, there’s no painful metal to scratch your mouth and no wires or rubber bands to worry about. Aligners are replaced every two weeks and gradually shift the teeth to a perfectly straight position. And in most cases, the whole process usually takes about one year – less than that of traditional braces. Over 3 million people have achieved their perfect smiles with Invisalign. And in one appointment at Lakewood Smiles Dentistry, Dr. William or Dr. Girgis can tell you if you’re a good candidate for the treatment.

Benefits of Invisalign

There are many reasons why most people choose Invisalign over traditional braces. Here are just a few:

Better looking

Many people are embarrassed to have metal braces, and they certainly draw attention to your teeth. With Invisalign, you can live your life more confidently while you work on your smile. Most people can’t even tell you’re wearing aligners.

Better hygiene

Invisalign aligners can be removed when necessary, unlike metal braces. This means you can take them out while you eat, and when flossing and brushing your teeth. This leads to better oral care habits and better overall health.

More comfortable

Metal braces have sharp edges, precarious wires and tight rubber bands that can cause scratches and pain in and around the mouth. With Invisalign, you don’t have to worry. Aligners are made of smooth plastic to keep you comfortable.
