A member of the American Dental Association and the California Dental Association, Dr. Monica Boniadi has practiced general and cosmetic dentistry for more than 22 years. Monica Boniadi, DDS, owns and manages the Laser & Cosmetic Dental Institute of Orange County, where she offers cosmetic dental options such as Invisalign.
A convenient and affordable alternative to traditional metal braces, Invisalign technology shifts teeth with custom-made clear aligners. The dentist starts by utilizing a digital scanning system to create three-dimensional images of the patient’s teeth, then creates a custom plan that details the anticipated movement of the teeth and the duration of treatment.
The patient typically wears the aligners, which are made of SmartTrack® material and are virtually invisible, for 20 to 22 hours a day and changes them weekly. The smooth, comfortable aligner trays can be removed for special occasions and to eat or brush, and they can be easily cleaned with a brush and lukewarm water.
