Having a straight smile can be a fantastic boost to your self-esteem and confidence. However, getting braces to straighten your smile can be a blow to both self-esteem and confidence. If you would like to avoid traditional braces, we provide an excellent alternative that operates almost invisibly.

Invisalign® aligners are plastic braces designed to be invisible. They straighten your teeth and align your bite without drawing attention to themselves. They are made of thermoformed plastic for durability and customization, and you will use a series of these trays to correct your smile.

Using a custom designed plan of treatment, Dr. Gerald Fujii will make your Invisalign® trays. Each tray is designed to be used for a few weeks, and each has a specific purpose and timing in the alignment of your teeth. They use precise pressure to gently guide your teeth to their ideal alignments.

One of the greatest things about Invisalign® is its convenience. Traditional metal braces are permanently attached to your teeth and make eating and hygiene difficult. Invisalign®, on the other hand, is completely removable, making eating and hygiene as easy as if you didn’t have braces.

If you are dissatisfied with a crooked smile and would like to learn more about Invisalign® or any of our other dental services, please call Portland Dental PC in Portland, Oregon, today. Our dentist, Dr. Gerald Fujii, would be happy to assist you.
