You may think it’s too late or too intensive of a procedure to straighten a crooked or misaligned smile, but you would be wrong!

Dr. Michael Amir and Dr. Larry Hamer at SC Dental Group in Sherman Oaks, CA, are here to answer any questions you may have about Invisalign and help give you the smile you deserve.
What is Invisalign?
Invisalign is a set of clear aligner trays that discreetly straighten your smile with no extra work by you! To start your Invisalign treatment, your Sherman Oaks, CA, dentists will fit you for custom aligners that you will wear all day unless you’re eating, drinking, or brushing and flossing. That means they will be on for about 22 hours a day. Since Invisalign is clear, no one will even know you’re wearing them unless you want them to know!
Each aligner is designed to subtly begin to push your teeth into the correct position to give you the smile that you desire. Every few weeks, you will switch out your aligner for a new one, and each aligner is designed to fit where your teeth have been pushed to. The process can take anywhere from 9 to 15 months, and a few times throughout this process, you will have a checkup with your dentists to be sure that you are progressing as expected. Your dentists will take this time to address any issues and check that your treatment is going according to schedule.
