Dentist in Winnetka
If you weren’t fortunate enough to be born with perfectly straight teeth and an even bite chances are you wore traditional braces to try and adjust your smile. Traditional metal braces work well and are great for younger children who can personalize them with colored elastics. However, for many adults and older teens wire braces, or even the newer clear ceramic braces are too much of a hassle and uncomfortable to wear. For these patients our dentist in Winnetka at White Smiles Dental Group offers the Invisalign System as an alternative to braces.
The Invisalign System does not places metal or ceramic brackets and archwires of any kind on the teeth. Instead the system uses clear plastic trays called aligners to gentle move the teeth into their proper position. Our dentist in Winnetka will take impressions of the teeth along with 3-D imaging and send these to Invisalign to fabricate a customized series of aligners for each patient. Each aligner will be worn 24 hours a day for approximately two weeks and then be replaced by the next aligner in the series. Once all the aligners have been used the teeth will be in their proper position. There are between 13 – 48 aligners in the series depending on the individual case.
Even through Invisalign aligners are worn all day and night they are taken out for meals and teeth brushing. This is an advantage over braces in that the user can eat whatever they want and not worry about bending wires or loosening brackets. Removing the aligner also makes tooth brushing and flossing much more effective. Invisalign is virtually invisible so no one needs to know that the patient is wearing the aligners or undergoing an orthodontic treatment. The patient gets straight teeth; an even bite and a beautiful smile without the wire mouth look. Call our dentist in Winnetka for a consultation to see if Invisalign can help your smile.
If you want to have a beautifully straightened smile, you should come to see us at White Smiles Dental Group. At our dental practice, our expert orthodontist, Dr. Shawn Rabizadeh, can assess your individual bite problem and let you know which type of Winnetka braces will work best for you.
Today there are many different types of Winnetka braces available for our patients. Our dentist will want to assess your individual dental situation, talk to you about your needs and desires regarding orthodontic care, and then let you know which type of orthodontic treatment will work best for you. Today, traditional metal braces are still a popular braces choice. However, the metal braces of today are very different from the metal braces of years ago. Today’s metal braces have much smaller and smoother brackets so that not only are the braces more comfortable to wear, but they are much less intrusive to your smile. Ceramic braces are also an excellent treatment option as they can be either tooth-colored or clear. Ceramic braces are a great choice for patients who need to have more traditional orthodontic care due to their bite problem, but do not want to wear metal braces. For some of our patients, treatment with Invisalign invisible braces is the best solution. This orthodontic treatment uses clear plastic aligners to slowly move your teeth into their proper positions. These clear plastic aligners are virtually invisible while they are being worn, so patients are able to have truly discrete orthodontic care. If you are concerned that you will be embarrassed by being seen wearing metal wires and brackets on your teeth, orthodontic treatment with Invisalign may be the best treatment choice for you.

Today there are many different types of braces available to treat bite problems. Our dentist will want to meet with you and examine your individual bite situation and then let you know which type of orthodontic treatments will work best for you. Many times, there are several different types of orthodontic treatments available, and it often becomes a decision based on your personal preferences. Many of our patients, particularly our adult patients, prefer to have their teeth straightened using Invisalign. Invisalign uses clear plastic aligners instead of metal brackets and wires to straighten your teeth. This means that our patients are able to have complete orthodontic treatment without ever being worried about being embarrassed by being seen wearing metal braces on their teeth. We also offer many other different types of braces treatment. We offer traditional metal braces which are now much more comfortable and attractive than the metal braces of years ago. Today’s metal brackets are much smaller so they are also less noticeable on teeth. The brackets are also smoother so that they are much more comfortable for the patient. For those who want to have more discrete orthodontic care but do not want to wear clear plastic aligners, we offer ceramic braces. Ceramic braces can be either tooth-colored or transparent. Since these ceramic materials are not as strong as metal braces, treatment with ceramic braces can take a bit longer. Our Canoga Park dentist will discuss all different braces benefits with you.
