The invisible way to straighten your teeth, without braces.
Invisalign invisible braces can give you the beautiful straight teeth you’ve always wanted and hardly anyone will even know you’re doing it. It works through a series of clear, comfortable, and removable aligners that no one can tell you are wearing. So you can smile more during your treatment and after. And with over 70% of US dentists now certified to treat with Invisalign invisible braces, it has been proven effective in practices nationwide. Dr. Gray was one of the first general dentists in the country to be trained and certified in the use of these invisible aligners.
One patient of San Diego cosmetic dentist Dr. Gray had an experience proving how invisible the Invisalign clear braces really are:
In most cases, Invisalign is 30-40% faster than traditional braces, getting you a straight, beautiful smile you’ve been hoping for, in less time.
Dr. Gray was one of the first general dentists to be trained and certified in the use of these invisible aligners, and has had tremendous experience enhancing the smiles of his patients. Perhaps yours can be next.
Not everyone is a candidate for Invisalign, but luckily about 80% of adults can benefit from it.
The typical Invisalign patient is an adult, who either wore braces as a child and has had some changes since then, or someone who has always wanted straight teeth and just never had the opportunity. Invisalign invisible braces are perfect for most adults, as they are removable and you have the flexibility to decide to Invisallign invisible braceswear them or not, in a social or business setting.
A recent Invisalign patient said this: “Dr. Gray, I am so pleased with my results. I just can’t tell you. This whole process has been amazing. From where my teeth started to where they are now is incredible. I’m very happy. My neighbor has been in regular braces for 5 years, and you accomplished what I wanted in just over a year. Thanks so much.” –Becky K.
What Is Invisalign?
- Invisalign is the nearly invisible way to straighten your teeth without braces.
- Using space-age computer CAD-CAM technology, Invisalign creates a series of clear, comfortable aligners (pictured to the right) that gently and quickly straighten your teeth without metal wires or brackets.
- Over the past 5 years, Invisalign has proven to be an extremely effective and efficient way to help adults achieve the straight, beautiful smile they’ve always wanted. (See John’s letter below)
How Does Invisalign Work?
- You wear each set of computer-generated comfortable aligners for about 2 weeks, removing them for meals and to brush. To get the best results, you’ll want to wear your aligners about 20-22 hours/day.
- About every 2 weeks you will switch to the next aligner in the series, as your teeth are gently moved towards the final position.
- You normally will come to the office for a check up and to pick up your next set of aligners about every 4-6 weeks, making this convenient for most patients’ busy schedule.
- Total treatment time will vary based on your teeth, but on average Invisalign treatment is 30-40% faster than traditional braces and best of all, it’s nearly invisible. Most patients time of treatment averages between 6-14 months. Some are quicker, some may be slightly longer.
- Side Benefit – Many of our patients have reported a 5-7 lb. weight loss as the result of decreased snacking throughout the day.
