Having a beautifully straight smile is a goal for many patients, but the thought of wearing noticeable metal braces to achieve it can be too much of a hurdle. After all, you want to show off a professional, polished image – not one that makes you feel like you’re back in junior high. Here in West Hollywood, Dr. Oshin is happy to offer a more sophisticated and seamless alternative – Invisalign. Contact our practice today to schedule a consultation, or if you have any questions for our dedicated staff. We also welcome patients from Beverly Hills, Sherman Oaks, and all over The Valley.
How does Invisalign work?
With Invisalign, patients don’t need to wear brackets or wires – instead, we provide a series of clear, customized aligners, each one designed to represent a different stage of your smile’s progress. You simply need to wear each one for a certain amount of time before switching to the next in the series. Patients also need to attend brief, routine check-ups with Dr. Oshin so he can view your progress. That’s it!
Invisalign treatment offers patients several amazing benefits, especially compared to traditional braces. These include:
- The Invisalign aligners are custom-made for your unique smile and crafted from completely clear plastic. This makes them so subtle when worn that most people won’t even notice they’re there, allowing you to maintain your self-confidence.
- The aligners are removable, which means patients can still eat their favorite foods and practice oral hygiene like normal.
- Do you have an event coming up where you’d like to look your very best! It’s perfectly fine to take the aligner out for an hour or so and enjoy yourself to the fullest.
- While traditional orthodontic care can require multiple years to be fully effective, most Invisalign cases are complete in 8-18 months.
