Dentist Oakland Change Your Smile, Not Your Routine

Oakland Area Dentist Offers Invisalign for Patients Seeking Discreet Orthodontic Treatment


At Franklin Dental Care, patients can enjoy treatment for a variety of dental issues. Visiting a dentist isn’t just all about examinations and fillings. It can also include aesthetic services to improve the appearance of the smile. Cosmetic dentistry is one specialty of our practice, and our dentists, Drs. Norman Yung, Kwang Kim, Lawrence Wu, and Adam Wu, encourage patients to find out what can be done for enhancement.


Patients who are unhappy with their misaligned smile may have been told by their dentist in the Oakland area that the only way to treat it is with orthodontics. Metal brackets and wires are often a turn-off for many teenagers and adults who want to realign their teeth. Instead, the team of Franklin Dental Care may suggest patients consider the advantages of an alternative treatment called Invisalign.


What is Invisalign? Our dentists describe Invisalign as aligner tray therapy. Instead of using brackets and wires, this method utilizes clear aligner trays that are worn over the dental arch to gently reposition the teeth. Invisalign is just as effective as many other orthodontic methods, and typically provides results in a shorter period of time. Most patients with mild to moderate misalignment of the smile are appropriate candidates for treatment, and can discuss the importance of compliance with their dental team. Trays are to be worn at all times, day and night, and only removed for cleaning of the smile and eating. For treatment, patients may have a number of trays that need to be worn, and each one is worn for two weeks at a time. At the end of treatment, patients will have a beautifully aligned smile!


Drs. Norman Yung, Kwang Kim, Lawrence Wu, and Adam Wu of Franklin Dental Care provide Oakland area patients with a wide range of cosmetic treatments including orthodontic alternatives such as Invisalign.
