Unlike traditional braces, Invisalign doesn’t rely on metal wires and silver brackets. Instead, your treatment consists of a series of clear, customized plastic aligners. Each one is designed to represent a slightly different stage of your smile as teeth are moved. By switching aligners every week, smiles reach their ideal position at a gentle and gradual pace.
Brief, routine check-ups with Culver City Orthodontics are also needed so we can gauge your progress and ensure that everything is going smoothly. Invisalign is often a great treatment for patients suffering from overcrowded teeth, gapped teeth, crooked teeth, or an improper bite.
This allows our office to deliver a unique, customized teeth-straightening solution that’s more precise and keeps your teen moving forward. Culver City Orthodontics is a Diamond Invisalign award winning office!
Damon braces use a slide mechanism to hold the archwire, reducing the amount of pressure exerted on the teeth and allowing the teeth to move more freely, quickly, and comfortably. Thanks to these innovative braces, achieving your perfect smile can be faster and easier than you ever thought possible!
Damon braces use a specialized slide in place of elastics to help the wire guide teeth into place. These slides help reduce the amount of pressure being placed on the tooth. As a result, treatment with Damon Braces is often faster and requires fewer adjustments than traditional braces.
Damon Clear is part of the innovative Damon System, which combines tieless braces with high technology archwires that are clinically proven to move teeth fast and comfortably with truly spectacular smile and facial results.
Damon Clear combines the best of traditional clear braces and invisible aligners to deliver a discrete treatment experience with results that go beyond straight teeth.
our orthodontists care about keeping your amazing smile long after you leave the office. After moving your teeth into the correct position, a retainer is necessary to maintain your result. Retainers need to be worn full time for a certain amount of time specified by the doctor, followed by night-time wear.
We offer 3 different types of retainers to accommodate your custom needs:
1. A Bonded Retainer -(sometimes referred to as a permanent or "glued-in" retainer) glued to the tongue side of your front teeth and you wear it indefinitely after treatment. With this type of retainer, we recommend nightly wear of a clear retainer that fits over the bonded retainer.
2. The Hawley Retainer - a removable retainer that consists of a metal wire and a custom color acrylic portion
3. A Clear Retainer - a removable retainer that is custom fit to your teeth
Our doctors and team members will be happy to discuss the various options with you so you can make the best choice for your smile!
