How Invisalign from your dentist in Washington DC can give you a great smile

InvisalignIf you are thinking about Invisalign, it’s only natural to wonder if it’s the right orthodontic treatment for you. The truth is, Invisalign appliances may look delicate, but they are strong enough to correct the same tooth and jaw alignment problems as conventional brackets and wires without any of the discomfort! Read below to learn more, and contact Dr. Leslie E. Bonner at The Bonner Dental Network in downtown Washington DC for help in achieving the beautiful straight smile you’ve been waiting for.

More about Invisalign

Invisalign is revolutionary due to its innovative system of smooth, comfortable plastic trays, known as aligners that have no sharp metal parts to poke and irritate your gums, cheeks, and lips. Thanks to Invisalign, all you will experience is comfortable, user-friendly treatment!

However, comfort is just one reason why Invisalign is right for you. When you choose Invisalign, you will also experience:

  • Quick Results: Invisalign treatment typically is complete within 9 to 15 months
  • Discreet Treatment: Invisalign aligners are clear plastic, so no one will notice you are straightening your teeth
  • Easy Maintenance: You can remove the aligners to brush and floss your teeth and keep your smile healthy

Invisalign is also right for you if you worry about not being able to eat the foods you love during orthodontic treatment. Invisalign makes it easy to enjoy eating whatever you want, without worrying about getting food caught in your braces. You simply remove the aligners to eat and drink whatever foods and beverages you enjoy.

Furthermore, everyone knows that a straight smile is easier to keep clean and healthy. A straight smile helps prevent wear-and-tear to your teeth and avoid temporomandibular joint problems. Now, thanks to Invisalign, achieving a straight, beautiful smile is easier than ever.

You wish you had gotten your smile straightened when you were a child, but you just didn't have the opportunity. Now, as an adult invisalignprofessional, you would feel more confident with a healthy, well-aligned smile. But, who wants a mouth full of obvious metal braces? At the Bonner Dental Network in Washington, DC, you can receive today's most innovative orthodontic treatment: Invisalign clear aligners. They're comfortable, thin, and so discreet.

What are Invisalign aligners?

They are custom-made appliances which resemble teeth whitening trays. Fitted snugly to top and bottom teeth, these smooth aligners move crooked teeth into healthier and more attractive positions. During their 9 to 18 month treatments, patients advance through 18 to 30 aligner pairs, removing them for oral hygiene, for meals and for special occasions such as job interviews or weddings.

However, there's no real need to remove Invisalign aligners for appearance's sake. Frankly, they are so discreet, only you and Dr. Leslie Bonner will know you're wearing them. That's why the innovative Invisalign system is so popular in Washington, DC and around the world.

Treatment with Invisalign

It starts with a complete oral examination, including a three-dimensional scan. The Invisalign lab uses Dr. Bonner's treatment plan and your scan to individually and precisely craft each aligner pair.

When you begin wearing your appliances (20 to 22 hours a day is optimal), you'll find them easy to care for (just wash in warm water and replace) and comfortable. The smooth design causes none of the oral abrasions or soreness typical of conventional braces. Also, your dentist will not restrict your diet in any way. Just eat your usual healthy diet.

As your treatment progresses, your teeth will shift gradually. Invisalign treats a variety of smile alignment issues, including:

  • Overjet
  • Overbite
  • Underbite
  • Crossbite
  • Open bite
  • Gaps
  • Crowding
  • Tooth rotation
  • Tooth tipping

Finally, you will visit The Bonner Dental Network every four to six weeks for easy progress checks. Appointments are short, and there are no painful adjustments. Just pick up your next aligner pairs.

Cosmetic dentistry is a priceless facet of general dentistry, allowing you to rejuvenate your smile with only a few dental procedures. FindingDental Implants, Invisalign, Cosmetic Dentistry the right procedure for you could be as easy as asking your dentist about cosmetic dentistry and what it can do for your smile. Find out more about some common procedures with Dr. Leslie Bonner at The Bonner Dental Network at one of two Washington, DC locations.

What is cosmetic dentistry? 
Cosmetic dentistry focuses on improving the look of your smile. Some procedures kill two birds with one stone, improving both the aesthetics and functionality of your smile while others simply give you a smile you will love. Dentists can choose to undergo additional training in cosmetic dentistry procedures to further their education on the subject or gather the most up-to-date information.

Invisalign 
Invisalign is a form of orthodontic treatment which, unlike traditional braces, offers a quick and discreet way to improve your smile. The process treats the same issues as traditional braces, but uses clear aligner trays rather than metal brackets and wires, allowing you to straighten your smile and correct your bite issues. Patients remove Invisalign’s trays to eat and brush their teeth, making this method of orthodontic care the most convenient and effortless on the market.

Dental Implants 
Dental implants replace a missing tooth. Unlike other tooth replacement options like dental bridges, implants also replace a missing tooth’s root. This is crucial in providing the bone with the stimulation it requires to avoid atrophy and remain healthy. Dental implants require several dental appointments to complete but last a lifetime with the proper care. Implants are touted as the most efficient and permanent tooth replacement procedure available.

Whether you want to completely renew or simply tweak a small part of your smile, cosmetic dentistry can help you. For more information on Invisalign, dental implants, or cosmetic dentistry in general, please contact Dr. Leslie Bonner at The Bonner Dental Network with locations on 17th street and 20th street in Washington, DC.

You are never too old to fix crooked teeth and to get the smile you want.invisalign

You never had braces growing up so it seems like it’s far too late as an adult to consider fixing your smile, right? Well, our Washington, DC cosmetic dentist, Dr. Leslie Bonner, would like to challenge this thought process. While the idea of wearing a mouth full of metal doesn’t sound ideal for any teen or adult, you don’t actually need metal braces in order to get that straighter smile. In fact, Invisalign makes it possible to get that dream smile without other people even being able to tell that you have braces.

It may seem hard to believe, but it is possible to fix gapping, crooked or misaligned smiles without other people noticing. Instead of bonding metal brackets to your teeth and connecting them through a system of wires, Invisalign uses clear, customized aligners that will fit over your teeth to move them into the proper position.

Invisalign is a great option for anyone in Washington DC who is looking to fix:

  • Overbites
  • Underbites
  • Spacing between teeth
  • Crookedness
  • Crowding
  • Crossbites
  • Open bites

Invisalign is able to tackle everything from mild to moderate dental malocclusions. Both older teens and adults can benefit from choosing this orthodontic system over others and here’s why:

  • It’s more comfortable than regular metal braces, which can irritate and cut up soft tissue. Each aligner is also made to fit over your teeth, so you’ll get an ideal fit every time.
  • The aligners are also removable. While you will still want to wear them for about 20 to 22 hour each day they can be removed before meals and before brushing and flossing. This is a major advantage over traditional braces, which require you to change your diet and your oral care routine to accommodate your braces.
  • The aligners are made from clear thermoplastic so those around you won’t notice them. This is a major advantage for older teens who are in high school or college, as well as adults.
  • Aligners are easy to clean and care for compared to traditional braces.
  • You can often get a straighter smile in less time with Invisalign than with traditional braces.

The Bonner Dental Network in Washington, DC is dedicated to giving patients of all ages the smiles they have always wanted. Whether you want to learn more about Invisalign or other orthodontic treatments we offer, give our office a call today.
