Invisalign in Brentwood, CA

Special offer: Invisalign $750 off for new patients!

We strive to make dentistry easy for our patients. Convenience, saving time, and excellent care are all concerns. At Platinum Smiles Family Dentistry, we strive for all three. Many of our patients express a desire to improve the appearance and function of their smiles and we are pleased to offer many convenient options to fit into their lifestyles.

Straightening teeth used to be one of those treatments that seemed daunting because of its complexity. Brackets and wires required a big commitment and regular maintenance. Many of our patients felt like traditional braces did not fit easily into their lives and created too much hassle.

In order to offer more convenient orthodontic treatment, Dr. Huma Bayat decided to provide Invisalign to her patients as an alternative to traditional orthodontics. While Invisalign is not a suitable treatment for every type of orthodontic situation, many common conditions can be treated, such as:

  • Gapped teeth
  • Overbite
  • Underbite
  • Open bite
  • Crowded teeth
  • Crossbite

Traditional orthodontics utilizes a combination of brackets and wires to move teeth gradually over time. The orthodontist makes small adjustments at each visit and monitors the progress of the patient. Because brackets have sharp edges, they can cause pain and irritation on the insides of your cheeks.

Traditional braces also pose challenges when trying to maintain good dental hygiene. Food can become packed into your braces and require lots of diligent work to remove it and avoid embarrassing situations.

With traditional braces, you may experience an emergency when a bracket comes loose or a wire breaks. Emergencies are inconvenient and cause stress. With Invisalign, you will not have to worry about broken brackets or wires.

Invisalign works more like a clear retainer. The clear aligners we provide you are completely smooth and comfortable. Because they are clear, removable, and interchangeable, you can take them out for eating, brushing, and flossing your teeth. They do not cause irritation on the insides of your cheeks and allow you to eat the foods you want. You do not have to stick with soft foods or avoid crunchy ones.

Invisalign still requires regular visits with Dr. Huma Bayat to ensure that your treatment is progressing normally. She will let you know how often to change your aligners and when a new appointment is required.

Many of our patients enjoy the flexibility that Invisalign provides. While you still need to wear your Invisalign aligners for at least 22 hours a day, no one will notice because they are completely clear and do not take away from your smile.
