Why do some people lack confidence in their smile? Discomfort can stem from issues with discoloration, visibly damaged enamel, or a general lack of facial symmetry because of a visible flaw. One common concern is with malocclusion. This refers to issues with teeth spacing that can make a person’s smile look awkward or uneven. At our Temecula, CA dentist’s office, we can recommend treatment with Invisalign to address malocclusion and give you more confidence in your appearance! Invisalign appliances are difficult to see, and easy to remove, making this an appealing alternative to traditional orthodontic treatment. In addition to fixing smile flaws, this procedure can help you address certain oral health issues connected to dental alignment.

Do Gaps And Overlaps Between Teeth Bother You?

Visible smile gaps and overlaps draw unwanted attention, throw off smile symmetry, and may even affect your oral health by making trouble for your bite function. Even minor gaps and overlaps create potential problems, which is why patients are often eager to learn how they can be addressed. Invisalign treatment is a discreet, long-term solution to this issue. By wearing a series of custom-made aligners, you will gradually move your teeth, shifting overlapping teeth into position and closing gaps that attract undesired notice.

Beginning Treatment With Invisalign Aligners

Before you start moving your teeth into alignment, you will come in for measurements of your teeth and oral structures. At this appointment, your dentist gathers the details needed to both plan your corrective work and design your personalized aligners. When they are ready, you will pick up your Invisalign appliances and begin the work of improving your smile! You should wear your aligners throughout each day, but feel free to take them out when you need to eat or clean your teeth. Wearing them consistently will help you stay on track with your target date for completing treatment.

What Else Can Be Done To Straighten Your Teeth?

Our practice offers other discreet orthodontic treatments. With gold braces and clear braces, we are able to pursue a traditional approach to correcting malocclusion while minimizing changes to the way you look. If you only have minor smile gaps and overlaps, we can recommend cosmetic dental services, like the placement of porcelain veneers, that hide flaws and give you your desired improvements in less time!
