Perhaps you've heard of Invisalign braces, a newer alternative to unsightly and painful braces, proven to give you that perfect smile you've always wanted. If you're looking for a Westlake Village dentist to fit you with an Invisalign aligner, look no further than the office of Dr. Philip Shindler, a dentist with a proven track record of successful Invisalign corrections.
How Invisalign Works
Invisalign aligners are custom-made, clear dental devices that fit over your teeth. Unlike braces, even the so-called “invisible” braces used by most adults, Invisalign devices are barely noticeable. You wear the Invisalign aligners all the time, except when you eat, drink, brush, or floss.
Roughly once every two weeks, you head back to your Westlake Village dentist for a new device. Each device in the series moves your teeth a little closer to that perfect smile you're aiming for. The total treatment time for most patients is about a year – less than the time required by most braces. Furthermore, because the Invisalign braces are custom-fitted to your teeth, most people find them more comfortable and less obtrusive than braces. With no metal bands, rubber bands, or wires irritating your mouth, Invisalign braces take the discomfort out of adjusting your teeth.

Can Invisalign Change Your Smile?
Check with a qualified Westlake Village dentist to see if Invisalign braces are right for you. Most teenagers and adults can use Invisalign to treat adjustments to their smiles. Another application of the Invisalign devices is to treat more difficult issues, such as underbites, overbites, and crossbites. A dentist such as Dr. Shindler can tell you if Invisalign is a viable option for your smile or your more complex dental issue.
Adjusted to Your Lifestyle
If you have a first date, a special event, or plan to indulge in a yummy but sticky snack, you can always take your Invisalign device out for a few hours. This option to take the Invisalign device out from time to time gives Invisalign braces yet one more advantage over other braces.
Unless they look closely, very few people will even realize you're wearing the Invisalign. Whether you're adult who wants to improve their smile while still looking like an adult at work, or a teen who doesn't want to go through the embarrassment of braces, Invisalign allows you to change your smile while keeping your lifestyle. If you run meetings or speak to groups, you can still do so without worrying that they'll be focused on the device in your mouth instead of the words coming out of your mouth. After your course of treatment has ended, you'll have a stunning smile: you'll feel more confident than ever knowing that every time you smile, you're showing off those straight teeth.
Now you can have the smile you always wanted, without having to be embarrassed about those wires or bands. Invisalign braces now give you the option to have the perfect smile without others even realizing you are wearing braces.
