INVISALIGN CLEAR BRACES IN Whittier, CA

At Orthodontist of Whittier, we are committed to providing excellent care to every patient. Our board-certified accredited doctors and caring, compassionate team members are constantly educating themselves on the latest technology and treatment options. Doing this allows them to provide you with alternative options that will fit your unique needs – options like Invisalign clear aligners in Whittier.

What Are Invisalign Clear Aligners?

We start with a digital scan of your teeth, which allows us to create custom aligners and show you what your teeth will look like once your treatment is complete.

The clear aligners look like custom whitening trays and fit over your top and bottom teeth. You wear them at least 22 hours per day and get a new pair of aligners every few weeks. The aligners gently shift your teeth into their proper position. Each time you receive a new set of aligners, they’ll feel a bit tight. This is perfectly normal and necessary – it’s what is helping your teeth to shift.

Types of Invisalign Options in Whittier

Here are some of the options we provide our Whittier patients:

  • Invisalign for adults: Invisalign aligners are a great option for adults. You don’t have to worry about esthetics at work or spending more time on your dental home care. The aligners make it easy to clean your teeth, are esthetically pleasing, and can be removed when needed.
  • Invisalign for teens: If your teen is sensitive about getting orthodontic treatment, Invisalign might be the way to go. The aligners are far less obvious and more comfortable than metal braces. Plus, because they can be removed, you can be sure that your teen is practicing good oral health care, thereby reducing their risk of cavities.
  • Invisalign Express: Invisalign Express happens in five phases and is ideal for patients with minor alignment issues.

Why Should I Choose Invisalign in Whittier?

There are three main reasons to choose Invisalign over traditional braces:

  • The normalcy: Our patients love that they can remove their aligners to eat, as well as to brush and floss. You don’t have to worry about trying to clean around brackets and an archwire. You just remove the aligners, clean your teeth as per normal, place them back in, and you’re good to go.
  • The comfort: One complaint patients have regarding metal braces is that they aren’t smooth, and that can cause the soft tissues (tongue, lips, and cheeks) to feel sore. Invisalign in Whittier is incredibly comfortable. Once you’re used to them, you barely know they’re there.
  • The esthetics: Invisalign aligners are virtually invisible, especially when compared to traditional metal braces. And if you have a special occasion (wedding, prom, work presentation) coming up, you can temporarily remove the aligners.

Invisalign FAQs: What Do I Need to Know About Invisalign?

Here are some questions patients often ask about Invisalign in Whittier:

1. How Much Do Invisalign Clear Aligners Cost?

Invisalign costs about the same as traditional braces (between $2,500 and $6,000). Invisalign Express costs anywhere from $1,800 to $3,500. Ultimately, the cost will depend on the length of treatment and the number of Invisalign trays you’ll need to achieve your straight, aligned bite.

2. Does Insurance Cover Invisalign?

Many dental insurance companies pay for Invisalign the same way they pay for traditional braces – a portion of the total fee if the patient is under 18 and there is a medical necessity for the braces.

Whether your insurance pays a portion and you have a co-pay, or you have to pay 100% of the costs yourself, we will work with you to create an affordable payment plan. We have multiple third-party lenders and payment plans available for our patients.

3. How Will I Maintain My Straight Smile After Invisalign?

Maintaining your straight smile is just as important as attaining it in the first place. We provide our patients with Vivera retainers to wear after Invisalign. Vivera retainers are custom-made using the same state-of-the-art technology that’s used to create Invisalign aligners. Wear them every night, and you’ll be sure to keep your beautiful, straight smile.
