Does the thought of metal braces make you reluctant to seek orthodontic treatment? At Cosmetic Dentistry of Hayward, your personal preferences and lifestyle needs matter to us when it comes to orthodontics. Whether you are a teen who is socially conscientious or a working adult with time constraints, we have a smile straightening solution that can work for you. Invisalign is the treatment of choice for many of our patients in Hayward; this system provides fast results using highly discreet and convenient orthodontic therapy.

Dr. Atul Patel is a qualified Invisalign® Preferred Provider, which means that he holds advanced skills and extensive experience with the Invisalign process. Although the results of Invisalign are much like traditional braces, the process offers a more favorable alternative for many patients. This revolutionary orthodontic system uses a series of clear BPA-free plastic custom-molded aligner trays to make gentle corrections to the teeth over time. There is no need to come in for uncomfortable wire tightening and adjustments. Our Invisalign patients simply switch out their custom aligner trays every two weeks until desired results are achieved. Your total treatment time is directly based on your specific smile correction needs, but Invisalign generally produces faster results than traditional braces.

Invisalign Teen

Both adults and teens can take advantage of the Invisalign benefits. Our teenage patients especially appreciate the provisions of convenience and discretion that Invisalign® offers. Wearing these clear trays means that your orthodontic treatment will often be unnoticeable to others. They are also removable for brushing, flossing and eating. This supports easier and better oral hygiene during orthodontics, which can be challenging for many teens during traditional braces treatments. Lastly, we know your teen's schedule has high demands. With Invisalign® Teen, you will not need to work in frequent tightening or adjustment appointments.

Increased comfort, enhanced aesthetics and improved convenience are what highlight the Invisalign system. Whether you are a teen or adult, Dr. Patel can offer a way to straighten your smile with minimal disruption to your current lifestyle. We encourage patients who have an overbite, underbite, crossbite, crowded teeth or gaps between teeth to call us for an Invisalign consultation.

To further accommodate our patients, we offer extended office hours and a variety of financing options. Contact our office today to schedule an appointment with a Preferred Invisalign® or Invisalign® Teen Provider in Hayward.
