The best part about Invisalign® aligners is that they are virtually invisible- so the only thing people will notice is your beautiful smile!
Invisalign is a more modern approach to orthodontic treatment. Rather than using brackets and wires to move the teeth, Invisalign uses a series of clear plastic aligners that gently reposition your teeth over time. Invisalign is virtually invisible, comfortable, and convenient, making it increasingly popular with patients of all ages.
The Invisalign process begins with a visit to our office for a consultation. If Dr. Pardo decides Invisalign is a good fit for your needs, we will use our iTero scanner to take digital impressions of your teeth. These impressions are captured in seconds, eliminating the need for trays and messy impression material. Dr. Pardo uses these impressions to create a 3D model of your smile, which helps her plan your treatment and gives you a preview of what your smile will look like once your treatment is complete.
You’ll wear your aligners for two weeks at a time, or as directed, before switching to the next set. After your last set of aligners, you’ll receive a set of retainers to help you maintain your results.
We offer the following Invisalign options:

Frequently Asked Questions About Invisalign
How expensive is Invisalign?
The cost of Invisalign depends on the length of your treatment and the number of aligners needed.
Does Invisalign change your face shape?
Yes, any orthodontic treatment will change the shape of your face, including Invisalign. These changes are only for the better, though—they result in a more balanced, symmetrical facial appearance and profile.
Can I not wear Invisalign for a day?
You can, but patients who make a habit of taking out their aligners and leaving them out for extended periods of time will end up extending their treatment time. Invisalign aligners only work when you wear them!
Is Invisalign worth getting?
Yes, Invisalign is worth getting. Not only will you feel better about yourself once your teeth and bite are corrected, you’ll also enjoy better dental health.
Can you eat with Invisalign in?
No, you should never eat with Invisalign in. The advantage of Invisalign over braces is that you can remove your aligners and eat anything you want!
