Metal braces can be uncomfortable and they really don’t do much to help your smile while they are in. Contact our Dentists who are experts in the Invisalign product today!

Some of the benefits of Invisalign includes:

  • Clear and nearly invisible
  • No pain, no wires
  • Removable: You can brush and floss normally
  • Incredible results

Invisalign®

Invisalign® straightens teeth to give you the confidence of a great smile. Using a series of clear, virtually invisible aligners, Invisalign treatments gently and gradually moves your teeth based on the plan prescribed by your Invisalign dentist. There are no wires or brackets so you’ll have confidence in your smile during and after treatment. In fact, most people won’t even know you’re wearing Invisalign. Invisalign aligners are removable, so you can eat whatever you want and easily brush and floss as you normally would.
You’ll visit your Westlake Village Invisalign dentist dentist every 6-9 weeks on average, and typically Invisalign treatment takes less than a year. If you're ready to begin your Invisalign treatments and get the smile you've always wanted, contact our Westlake Village dental office to set up your initial consultation!

How Invisalign works?

Your Invisalign Dentist will make removable braces (called aligners) made from smooth plastic, especially for you and your orthodontic needs. The aligners guide the teeth into their correct position as planned. About every 2-3 weeks you change to the next aligner in the series. They can be removed when you are eating and for cleaning your teeth normally. This is a big difference from conventional braces that can make eating some foods difficult or impossible. Many patients with conventional braces also find they must spend extra time every day to keep their teeth clean with the wires and brackets, but this is eliminated with Invisalign.

How does Invisalign Work?

The virtually invisible aligners are made of a thermoplastic material uniquely developed for Invisalign. The aligners are custom-made for you to move your teeth in the sequence determined by your Westlake Village Invisalign dentist. Each set of aligners is worn for about two to three weeks before moving onto the next set of aligners in your treatment plan.

How much does Invisalign cost?

Cost is always a concern, and only your doctor can determine the exact price of treatment. In most cases, Invisalign treatment costs are comparable to the cost of traditional braces. In the U.S., the cost of Invisalign treatment ranges from $4,000 to $7,000, with the national average at about $5,500.

Does insurance cover Invisalign?

Because dental benefits differ from policy to policy, when you come in for you complimentary consultation, we will contact your insurance on your behalf and determine your coverage plan. In general, if a patient has orthodontic coverage, Invisalign should be covered to the same extent as conventional braces.

Does Invisalign really work?

Yes. Over 1.5 million patients with a wide variety of dental challenges have been treated with Invisalign. Invisalign was developed with orthodontists and used in dental practices worldwide.

Why Invisalign?

The best part of Invisalign is that they are virtually invisible, so no one will know you are straightening your teeth. If you are an adult, you will save the embarrassment of looking like a teenager as with conventional braces. Using Invisalign you can continue to live your life normally as there are no wires to tighten or brackets to move. Invisalign is comfortable to wear, does not affect your speech the way traditional braces can, and allows you to keep great oral hygiene. Contact your Westlake Village Invisalign dentist to get started!

How does Invisalign Teen Works?

Using an impression of your teeth, our Invisalign dentists in Westlake Village will use 3D technology to create a map of where teeth are, where they need to be, and how they will get there.

The aligners are changed out about every two weeks.

FAQs

Below are some of the most frequently asked questions patients have about Invisalign. If you have any other questions, or would like to schedule an appointment for Invisalign, feel free to contact us.

  What is Invisalign®?

A: Invisalign is a clear, removable aligner used as an orthodontic device to straighten your teeth without using metal braces. It is invisible, and as a result, nobody will notice you have them on. It can be removed to eat, drink, brush and floss.

  How Does Invisalign® Work?

A: Your Invisalign dentist will give you a set of clear aligner braces specially designed for you, using 3-D computer imaging technology. Every 2-3 weeks, a new set of customized aligners replaces the older ones until your teeth are correctly aligned to their final position.

  How Are Aligners Made?

A: The removable aligners are made with 3-D computer imaging technology, and a sophisticated manufacturing process.

  How much does Invisalign® cost?

A: Cost varies from patient to patient. For that reason, it is hard to say without a personal evaluation. Cost is typically very similar to traditional braces.
However, our dental office in Westlake village offers financing options including CareCredit, SpringStone, and CitiHealth. We also offer interest free payments and can often times break down payments to LESS THAN $100 per month. We can really make it affordable for almost everyone.

  How do I get started with my Invisalign treatment?

A: Our Invisalign dentists will have an initial evaluation appointment to discuss your goals about your desired smile. Once you are ready to start, a full set of digital x-rays is taken, along with photographs and some dental impressions.
Your dentist will digitally create a customized Invisalign treatment based on your discussions, after which it will take approximately 4 to 6 weeks for Invisalign to manufacture and ship your aligners to our office.

  Does Invisalign hurt?

A: You will experience minor discomfort on the first few days of wearing your new Invisalign aligners. It is normal to feel some irritation.

  How does Invisalign effectively move teeth?

A: It works the same as braces. Invisalign® Aligners move teeth by applying a controlled force. The good thing about Invisalign® is the timing of the force, which is a very well controlled force. Depending on your orthodontic treatment, only several teeth are moved simultaneously. This results in an efficient force delivery system.

  How long does this treatment take?

A: If the patient properly wears the aligners for at least 21 hours a day, the treatment will usually take approximately 6 to 18 months for most patients, depending on the case. The more complex the case, the longer it will take. On your first consultation, our Invisalign dentists will tell you approximately how long your treatment will take.

  Does Invisalign have eating restrictions?

A: No. You can eat and drink whatever you like during the treatment. With Invisalign, you should remove your clear aligners whenever you eat and drink. This is one of the benefits of Invisalign vs. Braces; you can eat all your favorite foods. The only recommendation our Invisalign dentist gives you is to brush and floss your teeth when you re-insert your aligners for good dental hygiene and fresh breath.

Invisalign Cost

Cost is always a concern, and only your doctor can determine the exact price of treatment. In most cases, Invisalign treatment is comparable to the cost of traditional braces. In the U.S., the cost of Invisalign treatment ranges from $4,000 to $7,000, with the national average at about $5,500.

CareCredit, Springstone, and CitiHealth

Our office offers financing from CareCredit, Springstone, and CitiHealth. Some of these options are interest free, and others will allow you to break down the payments to LESS THAN $100 per month. So we can really make it affordable for almost anyone.
