If you are too embarrassed to spring for metal braces, ask your orthodontist about Invisalign® today! Our orthodontist, Dr. Rehana Khan with Santa Monica Orthodontics in Santa Monica, California, is thrilled to provide you with information on Invisalign, so you can adjust your smile the way you always needed it to be.

Basically, Invisalign is an orthodontic aligner made of very thin, clear materials that snap on and off your teeth easily. This aligner system is loved by many because they are very discreet and can be taken off as you eat or clean your teeth. They are usually used for patients who have mild to moderately crowded teeth or other bad bite alignment situations.

An added benefit to Invisalign is they are nearly invisible and customizable, so they can be fitted to your needs without the embarrassment of metal wires. About every two weeks, you trade your current aligner in for a new one that will gently guide your teeth into the ideal place. These aligners are metal-free, smooth, and very comfortable, making it easier to align your teeth than ever before.

If you have questions about your alignment or would like to adjust your smile discreetly, then please call us today at 310-393-3344 to make an appointment. We are happy to give you a consultation, so we can determine if Invisalign is right for you.
