Through the use of clear aligners, he and his team can give your teeth the space they need and have you well on your way to an improved smile in no time at all.

Invisalign uses clear aligners to gently move teeth in a way that creates the necessary space your mouth needs to form a healthy and proper aligned smile. Your cosmetic dentist in Sunnyvale will discuss your goals and provide a thorough treatment plan during an initial consultation. Once impressions are taken of your smile, they will be sent to a dental laboratory where technicians will work to create your custom-made aligners.
Timelines may vary among patients because everyone’s individual case is different. Depending on the complexity of your orthodontic problem, you may need to wear your aligners between 9 and 18 months, which is significantly less time than if you were to wear traditional metal braces.
