Made from clear plastic, these virtually invisible aligners offer discreet treatment to straightening your smile. A straighter smile is more attractive, but it is also healthier. It’s difficult to effectively clean between crooked teeth; therefore by straightening your teeth you can get the most out of your oral hygiene routine. Dr. Claudia Denes in Fresno, CA offers Invisalign® for both adults and teenagers who are dedicated to enhancing their smile appearance.

If you’re ready to have a beautiful smile, call 559-297-1294 today. Dr. Denes will examine your teeth and fit your for your first pair of aligners to begin your treatment.

Noticeable Results, Unnoticeable Treatment

Patients are often hesitant to seek out adult braces because they don’t want wires and brackets ruining their appearance. However, with Invisalign®, we use clear, BPA-free plastic to create your adult braces. Most people will be unaware you are even wearing them.

Dr. Denes will take an impression of your smile to send to an off-site Invisalign® lab. After a few weeks, you will receive multiple pairs of aligners that are custom-made to fit comfortably over your teeth.

As an added benefit, the clear aligners are removable for eating and easy cleaning. But because of this, you will need to fully commit to wearing them consistently in order for treatment to be effective. Each tray should be worn up to 22 hours a day for two consecutive weeks before graduating to the next tray in the series. When trays are removed, we recommend placing them in their case to prevent losing or damaging them.

No Lengthy Treatment

Because traditional braces are often required to be worn for multiple years, this prevents many adults away from seeking orthodontic treatment. With Invisalign®, treatment can generally be completed in nine to 12 months. The length of your treatment greatly depends on the position of your teeth. At your consultation, Dr. Denes will provide a personalized treatment plan for you, fully explaining how long she intends for you to wear the adult braces.

Every two weeks, you will switch your aligners to the next tray in the series. Simply pop out the old pair and insert the new aligners over your teeth. When you wear your removable braces, your teeth will gradually shift into proper position. Each time you change sets you’re advancing to the next stage in your treatment plan.

Easy Clean Up

When patients hear “orthodontic treatment,” they begin to picture dietary restrictions, uncomfortable wires and brackets, and a lengthy maintenance routine. However, Invisalign® aligners are removable, which means there are no food restrictions. You should remove your aligners for meals, and when you drink any beverage other than water.

Dr. Denes will instruct you to remove your aligners every morning and night. During this time, you should brush and floss your teeth like normal. Between meals, you can brush your aligners and run them under clean water to remove bacteria.

Achieve a Straighter Smile

Adult braces enhance the appearance of your smile, as well as give you a healthier smile. You can pair this cosmetic treatment with professional teeth whitening to give yourself a completely new and more radiant smile.
