Give Yourself (or a Loved One) the Gift of Invisalign®
In the spirit of the holiday season, you can give yourself, or someone you love, something to really smile about — beautifully straight teeth without a mouthful of metal. That’s Invsialign®.

The holidays are a time of giving, and the advent of a new year is a time to make some improvements. Wouldn’t it be a great idea to cover both objectives by giving yourself or someone in your family the gift of beautifully straight teeth with Invisalign®?

At any given time in the United States, about 4 million people are wearing braces, and you might be surprised to learn that one-quarter of these people are adults.

No matter what age, Dr. Juliet Ebrahimian and the team here at Silverlake Smiles believe that straight teeth are always a great idea. While we offer a range of orthodontic options, Invisalign offers some great advantages that thrill both kids and adults.

A clear path to straight teeth

The first reason why Invisalign is so popular for straightening teeth — 16 million smiles and counting — is due to the clear aligners. Traditionally, we used metal brackets and wires, which are effective for straightening teeth, but are also quite obvious.

With the Invisalign aligners, you barely notice the clear plastic aligners, which fit snugly over your teeth, allowing you (or your child) to smile and talk with confidence.

Whether you’re concerned about appearances in the boardroom or in homeroom, the clear aligners do the job discreetly.

A removable option

Not only are Invisalign aligners barely noticeable, they’re also removable. This means you can pop them out for eating and for cleaning your teeth. With metal braces, keeping your teeth clean is challenging, but with Invisalgn, your teeth can stay white and bright.

As well, you can remove the Invisalign aligner for special occasions, though we strongly recommend that you limit this and wear your aligners for the recommended 20-22 hours per day. 

A comfortable road to straight teeth

Another reason why our clients love Invisalign is that the aligners are comfortable to wear. With Invisalign, you don’t have to worry about metal digging into the soft tissues in your mouth.

Not just a cosmetic option

While Invisalign checks a few boxes on the aesthetic and comfort sides of teeth straightening, you also want to know that the system does the job well, and we assure you it does. We can use Invisalign for most of the common misalignment issues, including:

  • Overbite
  • Underbite
  • Cross bite
  • Open bite
  • Crowded teeth
  • Gaps in teeth

Even if you don’t have a specific malocclusion, but you just want straighter teeth, Invisalign is an effective option. 

Invisalign works just as quickly as traditional braces

Invisalign works at about the same pace as metal braces, which is to say that we can straighten teeth in 6-24 months. Under normal circumstances, you swap out your aligners every two weeks. In some cases, we can also speed up the straightening by having you swap aligners every week.

As you can see, Invisalign offers many benefits, making the road to straighter teeth a more pleasant journey. To learn more, please contact our Los Angeles office, which serves the Silverlake and surrounding areas, including Los Feliz, Atwater Village, Frogtown, and Echo Park.
