Services Dr. Alatsis Offers

Dr. Alatsis’ dental clinic offers several oral health services to Gig Harbor and Tacoma patients.

Braces: The purpose of braces is to help straighten and align misshapen or crooked teeth. Both young children and adults can benefit from wearing braces. Plus, Dr. Alatsis offers ceramic aligners designed to blend in with the rest of your natural teeth.

Invisalign: Invisalign treatments provide an alternative to traditional braces. Invisalign is a clear teeth aligner that is barely noticeable in your mouth. Typically, Invisalign works better for adults or people without severe tooth misplacement. Patients should wear Invisalign retainers for at least 22 hours each day for the duration of their treatment.

Teeth Whitening: Gig Harbor Orthodontics also offers teeth whitening services for its patients. Teeth whitening is a cosmetic service that enhances the visual appeal of a patient’s smile. Over time, teeth stain and decay for a multitude of reasons. Teeth whitening treatments can eliminate this discoloration and give patients more confidence in their smiles.
