Invisalign and ClearCorrect
Invisalign® and ClearCorrect are clear aligners that have many advantages over traditional metal wires, brackets and braces.
Often called “invisible braces” or “clear braces”, they are comfortable, removable and discreet. Every aligner is customized for each person to target the specific issues whether it is shifting teeth, straightening teeth, or enhancing alignment.
Invisalign® is a teeth-straightening system that uses clear braces that are personalized for each patient’s mouth using 3D computer-imaging technology. They’re a clear, less intrusive alternative to traditional metal braces.
Invisalign® works two weeks at a time, as a new mold is made for your teeth to slowly shift teeth into their proper places. Once teeth reach their intended shift in alignment, a new set of aligners is created and used. The process is repeated until patients achieve their desired look. On average, Invisalign® takes about a year, but it can take more or less time depending on the individual’s mouth.
If you’re considering Invisalign® to correct your smile, come in for a consultation. The imaging technology at our San Francisco office allows patients to see how their smile will look once the treatment has been completed.
ClearCorrect was developed in 2006 and since that time has helped hundreds of thousands of patients achieve the results they want. By using a series of customized clear aligners your teeth are gradually moved to the desired position. Although every person and smile is different, results usually take 12-18 months.
Our Office takes pride in bringing ClearCorrect technology to the San Francisco area.
