You want the fantastic results braces to provide, but you don’t want to make the cosmetic commitment. Luckily, there are strong alternatives to having run-of-the-mill braces applied to your mouth.

Invisalign has been a leading solution for over two decades to tooth correction and making your smile pop. Invisalign primarily acts as a set of clear braces that gradually will improve the alignment of your bite, the straightness of your teeth, and other minor adjustments to give your smile that shining gleam.


4 Easy Steps to a New Smile with Invisalign


  1. Visit your doctor and have them take a look at your teeth with the iTero Element® scanner. Your Invisalign Doctor can take a fast and precise 3D digital scan of your teeth and map out a custom treatment plan just for you. 
  2. Start wearing your aligners. When you pick up your first custom aligners, your doctor will examine your smile, ensuring our high standards are met.
  3. Regular doctor check-ins. Your doctor will guide you to schedule face-to-face check-ups every few weeks to check your progress and pick up the next batch of aligners.
  4. Keep your new smile with the Vivera® retainer. This retainer is custom made and 30% stronger than other retainers

Why has Invisalign Become So Popular?

Invisalign has quicker, more consistent results than traditional sets of braces. Additionally, they are less invasive when applied to your teeth.

Eating Habit Versatility: Regardless of what you eat and when your Invisalign treatment allows you to eat whatever you want. This isn’t true for the majority of traditional braces solutions.

Great Value: While they may cost a bit more upfront, Invisalign is a great value in the improvements they make to your dental routine. Stains and cavities are common for traditional braces to cause. Since caring for your teeth is a bit more difficult with metal on top, you’ll not be able to get to those hard-to-reach areas. Invisalign avoids that extra time and patience you need to just successfully brush your teeth.

Almost Invisible On Your Teeth: The primary reason that most are instantly intrigued by Invisalign is the cosmetic benefits. Nobody knowing your teeth is slowly getting better and better is a great feeling to have, and will allow your treatment to be much less noticeable.

Added Dental Structural Strength: You don’t have to worry about clear braces breaking. Flexible, consistent, and durable in their application, you won’t have emergencies pop up when traditional braces break. 

In addition to these added benefits, they’re simple and easy to get applied to your teeth today. Give us a call to learn more.


How long will Invisalign treatment take?


Depending on the complexity of your case, you could complete your treatment in as little as 6 months.2 But you’ll start seeing results in a matter of weeks.

iTero Element® scanner


The iTero Element Scanner makes doctor visits go by much faster. The iTero Element streamlines dentists workflow with enhanced precision. And its 21.5” touch widescreen and high-definition color imaging makes it easier for you to see what’s going on inside your mouth.  


How does the iTero Element® scanner work?


The iTero scanner digitally captures the structure of the teeth and gums using the latest optical technology. The scanner is a compact, hand-held wand. Once your orthodontist begins the scanning process, it can be stopped and started as many times as necessary.


Your mouth is scanned with a radiation-free laser, and in as little as two to three minutes, the laser renders a digitally perfect, 3D impression of your teeth and soft tissue structures. Through digital software, you’ll then be able to follow the progress of the scans, including a 3D model of your teeth on our computer screen. The iTero scanner can be used for any orthodontic treatment, including Invisalign®.

Long Beach Crown Services

We want what's best for your teeth. While crowns are a drastic measure necessary in some instances, we apply the exact right amount of attention to avoid using crowns if possible.

Porcelain is the only material that can effectively mimic the appearance of natural teeth. Since metal was once required for the crown's base due to the insufficiency of the technologies used to create high-quality porcelain restorations, porcelain is now fused directly to the metal.
Our porcelain crowns avoid using metal completely.

Minimizing Invasiveness of Procedures

Procedures that heal your teeth and put them in the best position to be used effectively do not necessarily need crowns or filling. You have a ton of options at your disposal, and unless you currently have a crown on that tooth, you should get a second opinion if your dentist has advised you that you need a crown.

There are less invasive ways to restore teeth now. It's not necessary to choose between a filling and a crown. We can offer you a beautiful smile without having to reduce your teeth to powder.
