Invisalign® is a subtle and effective alternative to traditional metal braces, using clear, form-fitting aligners instead of the bracket-and-wire system. If you’re hoping to achieve a more beautiful smile and a more confident you, we’d love to welcome you in for a consultation! Dr. Gashparova has been recognized as the premier provider of Invisalign clear braces in Alhambra, CA and loves helping patients discover this image-friendly treatment.
One of the biggest concerns patients have about traditional braces is the negative impact it may have on their sense of self-esteem. The prospect of having a “metal mouth” for months or even years can be very discouraging, especially for professional adults. Thankfully, Invisalign uses a series of clear, comfortable aligners instead that are very hard to notice when worn.
Invisalign treatment consists of a series of alignment trays. The patient wears each aligner as directed (usually for a few weeks) before switching to the next one in the set. Over time, the teeth will move gradually to reflect each new aligner. In addition to the cosmetic benefits, these aligners can be temporarily removed from the mouth for important occasions. An overwhelming number of patients express complete satisfaction with both the treatment process and the beautiful results!
Total treatment time averages 9-15 months but will vary from case to case. We want to see patients about once every 6 weeks to ensure that treatment is progressing as planned.
Invisalign® effectively corrects a wide variety of dental problems, including overcrowding, gaps between teeth, deep bites, crossbites, rotated teeth, and more.
Invisalign® treatment can begin once a child has all of their permanent teeth in place. Adults can also use Invisalign® aligners as long as they aren’t struggling with advanced gum/periodontal disease. It is important to get that health problem under control first so that the jawbone is stable and won’t experience more damage from the aligners.
Invisalign® may cost anywhere from $3000 to $6500. We offer payment plans to make this investment more affordable. Let us know if you’re interested in learning more!
Typically, a dental insurance policy that covers orthodontics will cover treatment with Invisalign®. Our dental office offers free pre-determinations for Invisalign® coverage – all you have to do is call in with your insurance information.
