Houston, TX Invisalign Certified Dentist
Dr. Castro offers Invisalign...The Invisible Orthodontics!
The easy way to improve your smile.
Invisalign is proven technology designed to give you the smile you've always wanted, without the pain and anxiety associated with metal braces.
Invisible, Comfortable And Removable!
To help you get a more beautiful smile, Invisalign uses a series of clear, removable aligners to gradually move your teeth. Each set of aligners is worn for two weeks. You remove them only to eat, drink, brush and floss. As you replace each set of aligners with the next in the series, your teeth will gradually move until they reach the position the doctor has prescribed for you. Treatment time is usually less than a year and frequently is as little as five months.
Less treatment time.
Invisalign is almost always faster than traditional othodontics (braces) because a computer, doctor and technician determine the quickest and smoothest way to move your teeth to the desired position. At regular intervals, you'll receive new custom-molded clear aligners to continue the straightening process. The total number of aligners is specific to you as determined for your course of treatment.
Clear. And comfortable.
Since Invisalign is practically invisible, there's no unwarranted attention to your mouth. In fact, very few people will notice at all - unless you tell them. They're comfortable to wear and they can be easily removed when you eat, brush, and floss.
Is Invisalign for Me?
Invisalign can be used to treat the vast majority of common problems for adults and teens. Whether your smile needs minor improvements or more extensive adjustments, Invisalign can certainly help. It's successful in treating overly crowded or widely spaced teeth. It can also relieve more complex issues, including overbites, underbites and even crossbites.
Made to fit your lifestyle, not change it.
Because Invisalign uses clear plastic aligners to position and straighten teeth, you can keep your active lifestyle during treatment. Unlike braces, Invisalign aligners have no metal bands or wires to irritate your mouth. So go ahead and be as active as you like. Since Invisalign is removable, you can just take the clear aligners out for special events. You can even indulge in a sticky, gooey snack.
Look your best during and after treatment.
Of course you want to look great at work, at school and with your friends. You still can no matter how old you are. Because Invisalign is clear and nearly invisible, most people will never know you're straightening your teeth. And when your course of treatment has ended, you will feel more confident, whether in front of people or not. You'll have a stunning smile!
