Certified, Preferred Provider of Invisalign near Carlsbad, CA

Straighten Your Teeth Discreetly & In Less Time

Invisalign uses a series of clear, custom-crafted, removable aligners to strengthen your teeth so you can forgo the wires and brackets that braces involve. People choose Invisalign over braces for discretion, comfort, ease, and improved dental health. Keeping your teeth and gums healthy can be difficult if you don’t have straight teeth, but our treatment with Invisalign near Carlsbad, CA can help!

Invisalign Vs. Braces

Unlike braces, the clear Invisalign aligners are virtually invisible, so no one can tell that you’re straightening your teeth. Because there are no wires or brackets involved, no chafing occurs against the inside of your mouth. The smooth plastic material of Invisalign ensures maximum comfort throughout your treatment while allowing you total freedom to enjoy your daily activities. There is no need to change your eating habits, wear a specialized mouth guard for sports, or relearn how to play wind instruments. Unlike braces, Invisalign doesn’t have nooks and crannies that trap dangerous bacteria in your mouth or require special brushing or flossing techniques to keep your teeth healthy. Just remove your aligners while you eat, play, brush and floss and replace them when you’re finished.

How Does Invisalign Work?

During your Invisalign consultation, we will take an impression of your teeth with combined digital x-rays that plot small movements to your teeth. You will wear a set of clear plastic trays on your teeth for 20-22 hours per day for the next two weeks. After two weeks, you will wear a new set that will shift your teeth, little by little, until you have a smile you can beam proudly. The dental health benefits of a straight smile are endless, as is the confidence boost! Straight teeth are easier to brush and floss and are less prone to wear and tear. Invisalign is the clear alternative to braces, and McElroy Smiles By Design is a certified Invisalign provider.
