Many people want perfect teeth, but most people’s teeth are slightly discolored or crooked. However, if you have crooked teeth and have never wanted to deal with traditional metal braces, we have the solution. Invisalign is a clear, retainer-type insert that you put over your teeth every day to straighten them. Come and see our Encino dentist to learn if it’s the right treatment for you.
What Are the Benefits of Invisalign?
Invisalign treatment consists of a custom-made aligner that is placed over your teeth. It can be made to fit only your top or bottom row of teeth, or it can be made for your entire mouth. When you come in for this treatment, we’ll create a digital mold of your teeth to create the perfect fit for your mouth. The plastic mold is ready soon after, and you simply pop it on your teeth and go.
Numerous benefits come from this method of straightening teeth. One of the main positives is that they are easily removable. You can take them out for everything from eating to brushing and flossing. Because of this, you don’t have to give up your favorite snacks or worry about the special tools for brushing with braces.
Another benefit is that they’re clear. If you wanted a treatment that’s less noticeable than traditional braces, talk to our dentists about Invisalign. While not completely invisible, Invisalign is very hard to notice unless you’re looking for them.
Our procedure is completely pain-free — before, after, and during. You might experience slight discomfort later because your teeth are shifting, but not much.
Does Invisalign Cost More Than Traditional Braces?
Invisalign generally has a similar fee structure in comparison to metal braces. Pricing can vary depending upon other factors such as region, and dentist skill. At Encino Family Dental, we'll break down the pricing if you are a candidate for clear aligners.
Does Insurance Cover Clear Braces?
Insurance plans with orthodontic coverage should cover your Invisalign treatments as well. Each dental insurance plan is unique, so coverages will vary across providers. Our dental office will be more than happy to check what your exact coverage is.
Some severe cases of crooked teeth do require traditional braces, so talk to Dr. Yassa to learn if Invisalign is the right choice for you.
