Smiling can elevate your mood, lower stress, and even improve your immune system. But, if crooked teeth make you want to hide your smile, then it’s time to take action. Traditionally, dental professionals recommended metal braces to fix their patients’ smiles. However, more modern solutions exist today (like Invisalign®!).

Dr. Mina Levi of California Dental Innovations is San Francisco’s most qualified and trusted dentist offering smile-alignment solutions. As a Master of the American Academy of Clear Aligners (AACA), Dr. Mina uses high-grade materials and contemporary smile-modeling technology to fix crooked teeth.

Metal-Free Alignment Solutions

It’s estimated that over half of all Americans are dissatisfied with their smiles. But, such a staggering statistic poses an interesting question–why aren’t more people electing to fix their teeth? The simple answer is that many people want to fix their teeth without drawing attention to their smiles. And, what’s more noticeable than a fresh set of metal braces?

That’s why Dr. Mina prioritizes discreet yet effective smile-correcting treatments. Let’s look at three, conservative ways that she can fix most mild to moderately misaligned grins.


Invisalign clear aligners allow teens and adults to correct crooked teeth without drawing attention to their smiles like metal braces do. Additionally, the aligners are removable, which means that patients can eat, drink, brush, and floss without any restrictions.

Dr. Mina carefully creates a personalized treatment plan for each of her Invisalign patients. Approximately every two weeks, Invisalign patients are given a new set of aligners according to their specific treatment plan. When worn for 20-22 hours daily, the aligners slowly and discreetly shift the teeth into proper alignment. In many cases, patients can get a picture-perfect smile in as little as 6-18 months with Invisalign.

Porcelain Veneers

Dental veneers are a great long-term and cost-effective smile solution. These ultra-thin, extremely durable porcelain shells cover slight imperfections, such as subtly crooked teeth, gaps, and misshapen teeth. 

Dr. Mina combines art and science to skillfully design custom veneers that match each patient’s unique appearance and personality. The end result is a beautifully straight smile that looks natural, renews your image, and boosts your confidence.

Dental Bonding

Dental bonding is more than just an effective way to treat and prevent cavities. Dr. Mina can use this strong, biocompatible material to fill gaps in the teeth and reshape minor tooth imperfections.  

By shaping, molding, and color-matching the bonding material to each patient’s preferred aesthetic, Dr. Mina can quickly deliver a dazzling, natural-looking smile. Additionally, Dr. Mina can use Icon® technology to cover grooves, stains, and white spots on the teeth for a brighter, more uniform smile.
