Your smile is the first thing that someone notices when you first meet; unfortunately, not everyone has the confidence to greet a friend or even a family member with a wide toothy grin.

Some folks have to deal with yellow or stained teeth while others have chipped teeth that they are ashamed of. Of course, your Westlake Dentists  Dr. David Hakimi, and Dr. Armon Eben can whiten your teeth with an in-office whitening system, and fix your chipped or broken teeth with veneersor implants, but if you are afraid to flash your pearly whites because of crooked teeth, that is a whole different story.

Decades ago, adults who never wore braces as kids were loathe to even schedule an appointment with an orthodontist because that meant wearing traditional metal brackets during the day, headgear at night and a retainer. Traditional metal and wire braces were not only uncomfortable, but also very unattractive.

It is never too late for an adult to get braces as long as the periodontal environment, root length and bone support can cope with dental movement. In fact, most Dentists in Westlake say that many of their patients are in their 60’s and 70’s.

These days you can wear clear brackets and clear wire braces, or better yet, make an appointment with the best Dentist in Westlake Village for Invisalign®

Invisalign® is a removable and comfortable aligner that you wear for 22 hours each day, and best of all, the only people who will know you are wearing Invisalign are you and your Westlake Dentist.

Invisalign® is a great alternative to traditional braces and is perfect for teens and adults. Invisalign® is the invisible way to get rid of your crooked teeth without having to wear uncomfortable braces.

Westlake Smile Design uses Invisalign®. These clear aligners are removable without the need for brackets and wires. After wearing your new Invisalign® aligners for 14 days where you only remove for flossing, brushing, drinking, and eating, you will see your Dentist in Westlake for your next Invisalign® series. As your teeth continue to move, you will notice a difference. Your teeth will gradually become straighter until they have moved into their final position. After your initial two appointments, you will visit your Westlake Dentist every six weeks just to make sure that your treatment is on the right track. Your total Invisalign® treatment takes from nine to 15 months, but of course, patient’s treatments may vary. You can expect to see your Westlake Dentist an average of between 18 and 30 times during your Invisalign® teeth straightening therapy.

If you would like more information about Invisalign®, schedule an appointment with Westlake Smile Design. Your Westlake Dentist will be able to give you an exam to determine whether the Invisalign® teeth straightening system is right for you.
