Get a Straight Smile

Without the Hassles

Having a straight smile is not only aesthetically pleasing, but also provides many health benefits as well. Crooked or misaligned teeth are often corrected through the help of orthodontics. And while we do offer traditional braces, many patients do not like having a mouth full of metal brackets and wires for many years. Thanks to advancements in dental technology, Dr. Amir HagShenas is proud to offer patients effective alternatives to traditional braces in the form of Invisalign® clear aligners and FASTBRACES® technology. Invisalign and FASTBRACES remove many of the hassles of traditional braces and often provide results in a much shorter treatment time.

Invisalign® Clear Braces

Invisalign has revolutionized orthodontics by making tooth alignment possible with virtually invisible removable aligners. Invisalign aligners must be worn for 20-22 hours a day but can be removed to allow for improved teeth cleaning and to eat without restriction. Dr. HagShenas will take virtual images of your mouth and teeth and design a series of Invisalign aligners that gradually and gently shift your teeth into proper alignment. Every week or two patients will change their Invisalign aligners for a new set until they achieve optimum results. Typically, Invisalign can achieve straight teeth faster and more comfortably than traditional braces without the embarrassment of a mouth full of metal.

How Invisalign® treatment works

FASTBRACES® Offer Speedy Results

FASTBRACES is a quick approach to tooth alignment that utilizes patented triangular brackets and flexible wires. For many FASTBRACES patients, results can be seen in just over three months instead of years. The quickness of the FASTBRACES treatment results is due to the triangular brackets that adjust the tooth root and crown at the same time instead of individually like with traditional braces. The quickness of the FASTBRACES treatment leads to less appointments and often a lower overall cost.
