  • Be yourself with Invisalign. Since it’s clear, you don’t have to hide your smile while going through treatment.
  • With Invisalign, it’s easy to make your smile picture perfect for that special occasion.

What is Invisalign?

The Invisalign system is the virtually invisible way to straighten your teeth and achieve the smile you’ve always wanted. Using advanced 3D computer imaging technology, Invisalign depicts your complete treatment plan, from the initial position of your teeth to the final desired position. Then a series of clear aligners are custom-made for your teeth — and your teeth only — to move them little by little. Each aligner is worn for about two weeks before being replaced by the next in the series until the final position of your teeth is achieved. Your Invisalign treatment time is based on your specific needs and will be determined by your doctor.

What are the primary benefits of Invisalign?

Invisalign aligners are clear. No one may even notice that you’re wearing braces, making Invisalign a seamless fit with your lifestyle and day-to-day interactions with others.

Invisalign is removable. Unlike braces, you have the flexibility to remove the aligners so that you can eat and drink what and when you want during treatment. You can also remove the aligners to brush and floss as you normally would for fresh breath and good oral hygiene.

Unlike traditional metal braces, Invisalign does not use metal brackets or wires that could cause irritation to your mouth. In addition, you’ll spend less time in the doctor’s chair and having to schedule appointments and more time out doing the things you love.

Lastly, Invisalign allows you to view your virtual results and treatment plan before you start your treatment, so you can preview how your straight teeth will look once your treatment is complete.

How many patients are being treated with Invisalign?

More than 1,000,000 patients worldwide have been treated with Invisalign. The number of Invisalign smiles grows daily. At your next appointment, we can answer any questions you might have, and get you started on the smile you’ve always wanted.

Invisalign Testimonials

William

At my age, to have the big metal train tracks in your mouth, I just figured, in person with people, I just wouldn't feel as comfortable as I would with something that was truly invisible. I really believe in the product. I'm kind of a walking, talking billboard for it.William, Investment Broker - age 31

Christa

I'm so glad I made the investment to go with aligners rather than metal braces. I've heard stories of people having food stuck in their metal braces, and I didn't want to go through that. It's so easy — all I have to do is remove my aligners when I eat.Christa, Property Manager - age 44

Ione

The reason I went with Invisalign is because I'm not a kid anymore. I didn't want to look like a kid with braces on, and have the hassle of keeping them clean. There is a lot of work to keeping your teeth in good health when you have traditional braces.Ione, Administrative Assistant - age 58

Gina

I always wanted to have straight teeth, but never thought my smile would look this great. Plus, no one even knew when I was wearing them. I couldn't be happier!Gina, Media Buyer - age 26

Daniel

I definitely smile a lot more. Even though I'm still in treatment, it has given me more confidence. It's given me something to look forward to. I feel good about myself. I feel good that I have taken the steps to get these braces.Daniel, Chauffeur - 38

Vivian

I am absolutely, positively thrilled. The fact that I was done with it in less than a year, and really had no inconveniences whatsoever, makes me wonder why I even hesitated.Vivian, Nurse - age 53

Teresa

Everybody comments on my new smile, even when I'm wearing the aligners. Plus, I can remove them at any time, so they don't affect my lifestyle.Teresa, Consultant - age 39

Breanna

What I like best about Invisalign is the fact that I can take them out and floss and brush my teeth and put them back in. So it's not like I'm working around all this metal in my mouth, trying to get the toothbrush and floss in there.Breanna, Waitress & Student - age 20

Martin

I wanted my teeth straighter, but I didn't want to be in pain. My aligners are so comfortable compared to the metal braces I had when I was a kid, that sometimes I forget I have them on.Martin, Financial Analyst - age 28

Alex

At first, I was skeptical about whether or not to use plastic aligners to straighten my teeth, but I am very glad I decided to make the investment. In just about nine months my teeth were straightened using the clear, comfortable, and easy-to-remove aligners. I'm a busy guy, and using Invisalign fit right into my lifestyle.Alex, Disneyland Entertainment - age 21

It is really hard to find a very caring and honest orthodontist you can trust with your smile ... until you meet Dr. Jerome! He is also highly skilled and professional, delivering the best treatment possible for his patients. I ABSOLUTELY recommend him for your orthodontic needs.Jane Smith - Poway
