What is Invisalign®?

Invisalign® has changed the face of orthodontics. Instead of wires attached to your teeth, your teeth can now be straightened invisibly.

    Invisalign® is clear. You can straighten your teeth without anyone knowing.
    Invisalign® is removable. Unlike braces, you can eat and drink what you want during treatment. You can also brush and floss normally to maintain good oral hygiene.
    Invisalign® is comfortable. No metal brackets or wires to cause mouth irritation, and less time in the dentist’s chair getting adjustments.

The Invisalign® process has been proven effective in clinical research and in orthodontic practices nationwide. However, only a certified dentist like ours can undertake this procedure.

Invisalign Clear Aligners in West Covina, CA

How Does Invisalign® Work?

    A set of aligners are worn for about two weeks, removing them only to eat, drink, brush, and floss.
    As you replace each aligner with the next in the series, your teeth will move – little by little, week by week – until they have straightened to the final position the dentist has prescribed.
    You will visit us approximately once every six weeks to ensure that your treatment is progressing as planned.
    Total treatment time averages 11 months, with the average number of aligners worn during treatment between 18 and 30. This, of course, will vary from case to case.

The aligners are made through a combination of our dentists’ expertise and 3-D computer imaging technology provided by the Invisalign® company.

Don’t hesitate to contact us to discuss any aspect of your dental health – we don’t charge for giving advice!

Six Month Smiles

Are your teeth crooked or crowded? Or do you have unwanted gaps or spaces between them? Previously the only way to straighten them was by having either regular metal braces or the Invisalign treatment, which can be costly and take up to two years (even three years in some instances).

Now the new revolutionary Six Month Smiles treatment can offer a solution to your crooked or misaligned teeth in as little as six months, using what can be thought of as a hybrid between traditional braces and the Invisalign clear braces system. This system is ideal for those that want fast results for a much lower cost while avoiding the large visible metal train tracks.

With the Six Month Smiles Braces:

    The wires used are a lot smaller and tooth-colored, making them barely visible.
    Treatment time is faster – six months on average compared to 2-3 years!
    Gentle repositioning of the teeth keeps discomfort levels down to the minimum.
    Treatment with the Six Month Smiles Braces is considerably cheaper than conventional braces or Invisalign treatment (by at least $1,000).
    The principle behind Six Month orthodontics is that we focus on correcting and moving the teeth that show when you smile. By focusing the treatment on the “look” of your smile, we can achieve must faster treatment times.
