Today we are going to be answering some of questions that our dental team most frequently fields regarding Invisalign. Keep reading to get more information!

Q: How noticeable are Invisalign aligners?

A: Once your aligners are in place, they really do blend in with your natural smile. Invisalign aligners are made of clear plastic resin, so people will be able to see your natural teeth through the aligners. Most people do take a day or two to adjust to speaking and smiling with their aligners in, but once this phase is over, aligners are very natural and intuitive to wear.

Q: Do Invisalign aligners get dirty and gross?

A: Invisalign treatment is much more hygienic than traditional braces. Our dental team will provide you with specifically instructions on how to care for your aligners. Keep in mind that you actually take the aligners out to eat, drink, and clean your smile, so you can refresh them throughout the day. Plus, you actually switch out your aligner for a new one every few weeks, so the aligners never get that worn down.

Beginning Invisalign treatment is a big and exciting decision! Our Toluca Lake dentists are happy to provide you with all of the additional information and guidance that you need in order to perfect your smile with the best treatments for you.
