Clear Braces For Straighter Teeth and Wider Smiles

Invisalign is the most advanced transparent aligner system in the world, and both men and women prefer it over more conventional techniques for achieving the perfect smile that they have been dreaming of. We are pleased to provide Invisalign in Santa Barbara to our patients at Riviera Smiles so they may have teeth that are straighter and more aligned.

What is Invisalign?

Contrary to braces, Invisalign aligners employ a transparent tray that has been custom-made to match your teeth’s ideal alignment. Over the course of your treatment, you will get a number of clear aligners, each of which is intended to realign your teeth a little bit more closely to their optimum position.

Over conventional braces, Invisalign transparent aligners provide a variety of advantages:

  • Transparent: Nobody will be able to tell that you’re wearing them!
  • Removable: Makes it simpler to maintain good oral hygiene as well as eat and drink foods you like without damaging the aligners.
  • Less Discomfort: No metal brackets or wires provide comfort by preventing cuts or discomfort around your mouth.
  • Convenient: Less in-person visits to the dentist’s office and somewhat quicker treatment times.

Why do people choose Invisalign?

Invisalign offers more comfort compared to conventional braces

Inconveniences associated with braces include wires sticking out, brackets scratching your mouth, and food becoming caught in strange places. With your Invisalign in Santa Barbara, none of these concerns are necessary since the removability of the transparent aligners provide the impression that you are wearing nothing at all.

Your teeth may be straightened more accurately using Invisalign

An effective tool for planning and picturing your ultimate smile is the ClinCheck program. Using the program, your dentist can exactly create the smile of your dreams.

Is Invisalign faster than conventional braces?

Compared to conventional braces, Invisalign may move teeth more quickly, possibly saving you months of treatment time. The Invisalign 3D ClinCheck program is used by our dentists to plan how your teeth will move during treatment. Contrary to braces, which allow teeth to move freely, transparent aligners allow dentists to stop unneeded tooth movement and reposition teeth more quickly into the ultimate position they want. As a result, if you choose Invisalign over conventional braces, your treatment might be completed significantly quicker, getting you that perfect smile in no time.

What is the price of Invisalign in Santa Barbara?

Invisalign in Santa Barbara ranges in price from $2,500 to $7,000. However, to get a precise price quote tailored to your dental issues and required treatments you will need to meet with our experts for a thorough examination.


What is the Invisalign process?

Your expert will do a complete physical assessment on you before drawing up a treatment plan that details the anticipated motions of your teeth. The aligners are designed to gradually move your teeth into the desired position. Your dentist will then assess your development at each stage and make any necessary modifications. As your plan develops, you switch aligners for each step which is normally every few weeks.

What happens if you just use your aligners at night?

Patients who only use their Invisalign aligners at night won’t get the desired outcomes from their treatment. In order to successfully move the teeth into the ideal position, at least 20 to 22 hours must be spent each day with your aligners. That said, it’s very important to remember to put them back in after you’ve taken them out for short periods of time.

What effects will Invisalign have on my daily life?

Once someone becomes acclimated to wearing aligners, most patients report that they hardly ever notice them. You may take them out to eat and maintain your dental hygiene routine. The aligners usually won’t have much of an influence on your daily life, despite the fact that you will need to see your dentist more often than normal. In actuality, this is only one of the numerous reasons why patients opt for Invisalign in Santa Barbara.

How do I clean my teeth and take care of them?

To put it simply, adhere to the oral hygiene regimen you were advised by your expert. In most cases, it entails:

  • Utilizing a manual or electric toothbrush with gentle bristles to clean your teeth after each meal.
  • Using fluoride-containing toothpaste to maintain the strength of your teeth.
  • Flossing every day.
  • Additionally, heed any additional home-care advice your dentist may have given you regarding the aligners themselves.
