If your teeth are crooked, crowded, or gapped, our dentist may recommend orthodontic treatment.  Orthodontic care focuses on correcting irregularities in the teeth, especially in the alignment of the teeth and how they fit together.  Smiles Unlimited is pleased to offer two orthodontic treatments, Invisalign® and Fastbraces®.

To help you understand these revolutionary orthodontic treatments, we have provided a series of links and some general information on this page.  We welcome you to call our office to learn more about our orthodontic treatments and schedule a free consultation with Dr. Rakhi Jani to better understand your treatment options.

Invisalign®

Invisalign® treatments are designed as a discreet alternative to traditional braces.  We invite you to call us today to schedule your orthodontics consultation with Dr. Rakhi Jani to learn more about Invisalign® in Livermore, California, and discover if it is the right option for you.

Invisalign® is a great choice for patients looking for a more discreet treatment option. It’s a particularly good option for adult patients, and for those who are interested in virtually invisible orthodontic straightening treatments.

Generally, Invisalign is used to treat orthodontic issues that are usually treated with traditional metal braces. Our orthodontist may recommend Invisalign to correct issues such as:

• Crowded teeth
• Crooked teeth
• Gapped and spaced teeth
• Certain problems with the bite, such as an overbite, open bite, underbite, or crossbite

The Invisalign treatment uses a series of computer-generated aligners to straighten your smile. These aligners are very comfortable, because they are custom-made from smooth, thin plastic. The aligners are also removable, which allows you to easily remove them to eat, brush, and floss. Each set of aligners is designed to make small changes to your teeth, and is switched out about every two weeks. Your teeth will be gradually guided to their proper positions. You will have regular visits with our orthodontist to ensure that your smile is progressing as planned.

Fastbraces®

Fastbraces® are an orthodontic treatment to straighten your teeth in a much shorter amount of time than traditional braces.  Call our office today to learn if Fastbraces® in Livermore, California, are the right choice for you and to make your appointment with Dr. Rakhi Jani.

Fastbraces® are a safe, fast, and affordable alternative to traditional braces. Fastbraces can straighten your teeth in an average of 12 months, rather than the 18-30 months of traditional metal brackets. Some treatments are even faster!

Traditional braces straighten your teeth by moving the crowns of your teeth, and then repositioning the roots of the teeth. Fastbraces uses a triangular bracket design, a heat-activated wire, and several cutting-edge orthodontic techniques to straighten your teeth quicker. Fastbraces works on moving the roots and the crowns of your teeth simultaneously, shortening your treatment time. Fastbraces are available in both metal and ceramic brackets; ceramic brackets are an excellent option for a more discreet treatment.
