One of these options is Invisalign®, a cutting-edge dental-alignment technology that offers you a way to straighten your teeth quickly without having to wear metal braces, brackets and wires — conveniently and discreetly!

I decided to have braces because I realized the importance of a healthy smile and I knew that it also brings a great first impression. Having a nice smile sets the stage perfect…As soon as I walked in the door here they treated me like I was with their child, they treated me like they knew me their entire life… I would recommend this practice to everyone I know, because if you want to be treated like a human being versus just a dental procedure, you want to come here because they’re going to treat you like their family.
WHAT IS INVISALIGN®?
Invisalign® is a revolutionary orthodontic treatment consisting of customized, computer-generated, clear plastic dental aligners used to straighten teeth.
Computer modeling allows us to predict how your teeth will move as they are realigned so we may generate a series of BPA-free clear plastic trays. These trays are created from digital impressions we take in our office to ensure that your aligners are custom-fit and comfortable.
Who Is a Good Candidate for Invisalign®?
Everyone! Since Invisalign® is highly customizable, it is an appropriate treatment for updating your smile whether your issues are simple or complex. If you’re in the Greater Miami area and want to know for sure if you’re the right candidate for Invisalign® treatment, call us today to schedule a consultation with Dr. Garcia or Dr. Sanchez-Garcia.
Invisalign® can be used for patients of any age, from teens to adults, so it’s never too late to get the smile you want! We’d love to talk to you about your smile’s potential.
Here are a few examples of smile conditions that can successfully be treated using Invisalign®:
- Gapped teeth
- Open bite
Want to improve the appearance of your smile and don’t want to wait? You don’t have to! Call us today at Miami Designer Smiles to set up your appointment.
We also recommend correcting problems with your bite before those problems change into problems with your jaw joints. Painful conditions such as temporomandibular joint disorder can develop as a result of these bite problems.
Benefits of Invisalign®
Are you wondering what the benefits of Invisalign® are compared to traditional metal braces? We’ve listed some for you here:
Customization. Since we take impressions of your teeth digitally, they’re highly detailed and will be used to construct custom aligners to help address your specific orthodontic issues.
Comfortable. Invisalign® clear aligners are made of a comfortable plastic material and have smooth edges that don’t irritate the teeth or gums.
Invisible. Your aligners are clear, so they’ll be unnoticeable by other people, which allows you to feel confident in your appearance.
Removable. You can remove your Invisalign® clear aligners when you eat, drink, brush, floss or attend special occasions or social events.
Effective Results. Invisalign® clear aligners work quickly; you will begin noticing improvements early on in your treatment.
Can Invisalign® Clear Aligners Be Combined with Other Cosmetic Dentistry Treatments?
The answer is yes! Invisalign® can be combined with many other cosmetic dental restorations in order to help you achieve your smile goals. In most cases, we recommend that your Invisalign® treatment be completed before other restorative procedures are performed.

The Invisalign® Process
The Invisalign® process is easy! After you consult with Miami Designer Smiles, we will take digital impressions to develop a 3D model of your mouth. We will also explain your treatment, how Invisalign® alignment technology works, how long it will take, and what your smile will look like after your treatment.
After your clear aligners are ready, you should expect to wear them at least 20 hours each day to achieve optimal results. We recommend removing them only to eat, drink and perform your oral hygiene routine (brushing at least twice a day and flossing at least once per day).
In most cases, you will wear your trays for two weeks and switch to the next on a pre-determined schedule as your teeth gradually move into a straighter position until your treatment plan is complete. In some instances, you may wear your trays longer, depending on your treatment plan.
Treatment time is generally six months to a year and consists of 16 to 20 aligner trays, depending on your smile needs.
