Invisalign Clear Braces San Mateo

Forget everything you’ve heard about teeth straightening. Because now there’s breakthrough technology that lets you get the smile you always wanted without bands, brackets or wires.

How does invisalign work?

Using the latest advances in the 3-D computer technology, invisalign translates your doctor’s instructions into a series of nearly undetectable aligners. You wear each set of aligners for about two weeks, moving your teeth gradually week by week, millimeter by millimeter until you’ve achieved the desired result.

Is invisalign effective?

San Mateo Dentist Dr. Alan Cheung’s experience will ensure the best results possible with invisalign. It works for a wide range of people whose teeth are too crowded or have spaces between them, as well as for those whose teeth may have shifted after having worn braces in their youth.

How often will I have to wear my aligners?

Invisalign only works while you’re wearing the aligners. It’s recommended that you wear your aligners full-time, day and night, except to eat, brush and floss your teeth – or as directed by Dr. Cheung.

How long does invisalign take?

The duration of treatment depends on the severity of your case, which determines the number of aligners you need. However, the average is about 12 months, but only your doctor can determine the length of your treatment.

Is Invisalign for Me?

Invisalign can be used to treat the vast majority of common problems for adults and teens.
Whether your smile needs minor improvements or more extensive adjustments, Invisalign can certainly help. It’s successful in treating overly crowded or widely spaced teeth. It can also relieve more complex issues, including overbites, underbites and even crossbites. In fact, Invisalign Certified Dentist, Dr. Alan Cheung can use Invisalign clear aligners in all or part of just about any treatment plan.
