Canoga Park dentist
If you are looking for a dental practice that will provide you with complete dental and orthodontic care, we urge you to contact us at White Smiles Dental Group. When you want to get braces for either yourself or your child, you should come in to see our Canoga Park dentist; our expert orthodontist is Dr. Shawn Rabizadeh.
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.

Dentist in Winnetka
Did you ever wish that you could achieve a straight smile without wearing traditional metal braces? Well, you can with treatment by Invisalign. At our White Smiles Dental Group our dentist in Winnetka, just one of whom is Dr. David Rabizadeh, can provide treatment using Invisalign invisible braces.
When patients come to our dental practice wanting to have their smile straightened with Invisalign, our dentist in Winnetka will first need to assess whether or not their bite situation can be corrected with this treatment method. Invisalign uses clear plastic aligners to slowly move teeth into position. Once our dentist determines that you are a good candidate for the procedure, CAD/CAM computer technology will be used so that you can have your own individualized series of clear plastic aligners created. Depending on the bite problem being fixed, your series of aligners will have anywhere between 15 and 45 aligners in it. Each aligner is worn for two weeks and will slowly move your teeth into position for the next aligner. When the last aligner of the series has been worn, you will have your beautiful new smile. Our patients thoroughly enjoy being treated with Invisalign because they never need to be embarrassed by the fact that they are wearing metal wires and brackets on their teeth. In fact, our patients are able to attend work and social gatherings without anyone even knowing that they are wearing these aligners. Invisalign aligners are virtually invisible while they are being worn. For this reason, many people refer to Invisalign as invisible braces. Treatment with Invisalign takes about the same amount of time as treatment with traditional metal braces. Our patients also enjoy being able to eat whatever they want during the treatment period. This is because the aligners are removed from the mouth during meals.
