Custom-made to straighten your teeth, Invisalign® clear aligners are nearly invisible. Each aligner is made of a proprietary, multi-layer SmartTrack material, which gently shifts your teeth into place over time, moving them slightly both horizontally and vertically and even rotating them if necessary. The aligners are engineered so that as you change to the next set of aligners (typically every two weeks), your teeth gradually move into their correct position.More information

The Dental Services We Provide at South Texas Smiles
Professional Teeth Cleaning
We recommend that you visit us at South Texas Smiles at least twice a year for a regular check-up and professional teeth cleaning. A professional cleaning will remove plaque and tartar that brushing and flossing at home just can't handle. Professionally eliminating this build-up of plaque and tartar helps to prevent bad breath, tooth decay, and periodontal disease. The best dental care we can provide is preventative care. Regular check-ups and professional teeth cleaning prevent small problems from becoming more complex and difficult to treat. Call South Texas Smiles in San Antonio, Texas today at 210-614-3898 to begin the dental care regimen that saves you time, money, and stress.
Over time, your teeth's natural whiteness can fade or become discolored as the result of diet, personal habits, or simply getting older. However, the teeth whitening procedures we offer here at South Texas Smiles can restore the brilliance of your smile. Depending on your needs and preferences, the dental team at South Texas Smiles will help you choose whether to receive this treatment in our office or apply it yourself in the comfort and convenience of your own home.
Corrective Dental Services
You may be unhappy about the spacing or misalignment of your teeth, but you would like to know more about the options available. We encourage you to call us at 210-614-3898 and talk to our friendly, highly trained staff about our corrective dental procedures -- from reliably effective and affordable metal braces to the latest innovative orthodontic methods like Invisalign® clear aligners.

You are able to maintain your professional appearance and enjoy the dramatic improvement of properly aligned teeth without feeling self-conscious.

Innovative Dental Care Technology
We utilize the most advanced technology and state-of-the-art equipment here at South Texas Smiles in order to provide our patients with the highest quality of dental care. Our dental team uses the iTero Element scanner to produce high-resolution 3D images of your upper and lower dental structures. The iTero's virtual model of your teeth is created without the time and discomfort required by the use of traditional x-ray photos and the dreaded dental impression goo necessary for making a physical model. In only seconds, your dental team will be able to show you a model of your teeth's current condition as well as a side-by-side simulation of your smile with its ideal spacing and alignment. The unprecedented resolution capable with the iTero Element allows the hygienists and dentist here at South Texas Smiles to provide you with a higher quality of oral health care by identifying dental problems such as early decay or microscopic fractures in a fraction of the time required by old-fashioned methods. This means that your dentist can give you a diagnosis with greater accuracy while also decreasing the amount of time for your examination.
