Invisalign Clear Aligners

invisalign® clear aligners

While there are many options to straighten your teeth Invisalign is the only clear option that is free of brackets and wires. Invisalign allows you to work, eat, and participate in social situations worry free! All while giving you a perfect smile. Invisalign has many benefits for the wearer, such as comfort and flexibility, below we will look at 8 of the many benefits Invisalign has to offer.

Invisible Appearance
Invisalign trays are invisible! They are completely clear so they don’t detract from your face or smile. This is an especially great option for adults, teens, and young adults who want to live life without the brackets and wires associated with traditional braces.
Comfort
Invisalign trays are made of smooth plastic making Invisalign much more comfortable than traditional metal braces. There are no sharp/extruding edges or pieces of Invisalign and the trays are custom made to fit your teeth and mouth!
Improved Cleanliness
Invisalign trays are removable – when you are ready to brush and floss your teeth just remove the trays, clean your teeth, then pop them back in. The trays themselves can also be cleaned! To make sure there is no build up just remove the trays and rinse or brush them with your toothbrush. A clean mouth is a healthy mouth! It is important to have healthy teeth and gums while straightening your teeth so you will have to best smile possible at the end of treatment!
Saves Time
With Invisalign you will be able to spend less time at the orthodontist or dentist’s office as they only need to be maintained every 6 weeks on average. Other teeth straightening options can take much more time and many more appointments.
Safe and Removable
Is your child or teen in sports or band? Invisalign allows for a more comfortable experience without the scrapes other orthodontic options can cause. Invisalign trays are also removable which makes brushing your teeth, eating, and everyday life more convenient than other options.
Eat Whatever You Want
Food restrictions are one of the worst parts about teeth straightening with many orthodontic options. Some of your favorite foods are off limits, which can really ruin a special celebration, anything too hard, chewy, or sticky is off limits! These issues are not a problem for Invisalign. You can remove the trays and eat whatever you want!

BOTOX® for Migraines & Headaches

If you suffer from frequent tension headaches or migraines due to a TMJ disorder or bruxism (teeth grinding and clenching), Dr. Lori Ann Safar may recommend BOTOX® to help relax the muscles of your face and head and relieve your pain. Headaches and migraines often cause significant pain and stress, and interfere with your day-to-day activities and quality of life. We welcome you to contact Celebrity Smile at (858) 481-8688 to schedule your appointment with our caring dentist and find out if BOTOX treatment for migraine headaches in San Diego, California, is right for you.

BOTOX therapy may be recommended to prevent headaches in adults who suffer from chronic migraines 15 or more days each month, or who have headaches lasting four hours or longer each day.

When you receive BOTOX treatment for your chronic migraines, our dentist will inject BOTOX into the area around the pain fibers that cause headaches. The BOTOX will enter the nerve endings in the injection area and work to block the release of the chemicals involved in pain transmission, preventing the activation of the pain networks in the brain.

Please note that while BOTOX will prevent headaches from occurring, it may take several treatments to be effective.

If you have any questions about BOTOX for migraine headaches, and to schedule your consultation with our dentist, please call our office today. We are dedicated to helping you achieve a healthier, pain-free lifestyle!

Reduce Gummy Smile

If you have an excessively gummy smile, Dr. Lori Ann Safar can use BOTOX® to non-surgically remove excess gum tissue and enhance your beautiful smile! If your thin lips are a contributing factor, our dentist may recommend a dermal filler, such as Restylane® or JUVÉDERM® to augment your upper lip and provide further improvements. To schedule your consultation with our dentist and learn more about how BOTOX can reduce your gummy smile, call Celebrity Smile today at (858) 481-8688.

When you receive BOTOX to reduce your gummy smile, our dentist will begin by applying a topical anesthetic or ice to numb the area prior to injection. She will then inject a small amount of BOTOX into each side of your lip to weaken the ability of the hyperactive muscles in the area to contract. This entire process takes about 10 minutes. Over the next three to four days your smile will transform to show less gum. You can expect your results to laser for about four months.

Prior to your BOTOX procedure, Dr. Lori Ann Safar will meet with you to examine your mouth and discuss your concerns. If you are taking any medications that may cause bleeding (Vitamins A and E, aspirin or related products, such as Motrin, Ibuprofen, Naproxen, and Aleve), we recommend that you temporarily cease to use them for one full week prior to treatment.

Many patients still do not know that they can visit our office and get a crown installed for their tooth on the same day. The crown will fit over the tooth, acting as a barrier from trauma and adding structural integrity to the tooth when it has been weakened. They can be made of several different materials, including metal fused to porcelain, gold, or porcelain on its own. They encase the tooth, acting as a natural replacement for the crown of it. So, yes, same-day crowns are real, and they can be applied to your teeth with ease and precision.

Crowns are used to keep teeth safe and secure during their daily tasks, such as eating or speaking. They’re often recommended when the teeth have had dental work done, or when the enamel has been weakened by bacteria and decay. They can also be used for cosmetic reasons, brightening your smile and keeping the mouth from showing signs of aging or discoloration.
