Gap teeth as a desirable trait dates back at least to Chaucer’s The Canterbury Tales, and they are a hallmark of such modern luminaries as David Letterman, Condoleezza Rice, Madonna, Anna Paquin and Elton John.

But not everyone with gap teeth is comfortable revealing this minor, yet highly visible, condition. If you’re searching for a way to close the gaps and open your smile, you may want to consider Invisalign.

Featuring a series of clear, custom-made, plastic aligners that fit comfortably over your teeth, Invisalign gently realigns your teeth, shifting them to the desired position and eliminating the gaps. A consultation with an Invisalign provider such as Dr. Rod Strober at Country Club Dentistry can help you determine if Invisalign is the right solution for correcting your individual gap teeth.

An Invisalign Premiere Provider, Dr. Strober has successfully treated more than 250 orthodontic cases—including gap teeth—with Invisalign.

Unlike braces, Invisalign does not require frequent office visits for tightening. You change your aligners every two weeks, and Dr. Strober will monitor your progress with visits approximately every six weeks; most Invisalign wearers achieve the desired results within 12 months of daily use of 20 to 22 hours per day.

Invisalign aligners are also easy to clean and removable for eating, drinking and practicing dental hygiene. There are no limits on the foods and beverages you can enjoy, and the aligners are virtually invisible as they gradually bring your new, confident smile into focus.

If you live in the Rancho Mirage areas and would like to schedule a consultation to learn if Invisalign is right for you, please contact the experienced team at Country Club Dentistry.
