Straight Teeth Shouldn’t
Be Out of Reach!

Straightening teeth can help with more than simply looking at one’s teeth. Patients also obtain additional health benefits from straightened teeth since they do not have as many areas for food to accumulate in them as crooked teeth. However, many patients dislike the visible and burdensome metal braces that they must wear to straighten their teeth.

Fortunately, we offer clear aligners to patients in Salinas, CA and the surrounding area as an effective solution to braces. Patients benefit from using transparent aligners while straightening their teeth in a discrete manner. Clear aligners are a cost-effective alternative to conventional braces. Clear aligners may be the best option for you if you experience any of the following:

Salinas Invisalign clear braces

INVISALIGN® CLEAR BRACES

You’ll be given a certain number of aligners made from a transparent plastic. These aligners are all designed based on an impression of your smile, and each one is designed to move your teeth just a little closer to their ideal position. You’ll wear these inconspicuous aligners for at least 22 hours each day, but you can take them out during meals, letting you enjoy whatever foods you want. In most cases, you’ll be able to enjoy a fully improved grin in just a year’s time!

SIX MONTH SMILES®

If all you want is to straighten your front teeth, there’s a fast solution available in the form of Six Month Smiles. Clear brackets and wires are used to apply pressure to the teeth (just like regular braces), but since it’s only focusing on a specific area, the treatment doesn’t take nearly as long. Also, Six Month Smiles only uses a very limited amount of force compared to metal braces, which helps keep any soreness to a minimum.
