Invisalign® near San Marcos, CA

A Discreet Option To Get Your Ideal Smile



invisalign in encinitas ca

McElroy Smiles By Design is proud to be a certified & preferred provider of Invisalign® near San Marcos, CA. This revolutionary orthodontic treatment straightens your smile without wires and brackets. Instead, Invisalign employs a series of clear, custom-crafted, removable plastic appliances called aligners. Each aligner is precisely designed by the Invisalign lab to represent a different stage of your smile as the teeth are moved closer towards their proper alignment.

After impressions are taken and our office has received your customized set of aligners, your responsibility as a patient is simple – all you need to do is wear each aligner for a certain amount of time (around two weeks, in most cases) and then switch to the next one in the series. We also ask that you attend brief, routine check-ups at our practice. Checking in allows our Invisalign certified dentist to check your progress and ensure that your treatment is moving your teeth correctly.

What Are The Benefits of Invisalign?

Comfort — Orthodontic brackets and wires tend to be uncomfortable and can result in oral irritation and pain. Invisalign consists of only clear, smooth plastic that’s been customized for your unique mouth, making it seamless and enjoyable to wear.

Maintain Your Lifestyle — While braces require you to change your eating habits, wear specialized mouthguards during sports, or relearn how to play some musical instruments, Invisalign allows you total freedom to enjoy your daily activities. Simply remove your aligners while you eat or play, and pop them back on again when you’re finished. In fact, it’s perfectly fine to take your aligner out for up to an hour or two, so you can enjoy any fun event to the fullest!

Discreet —  Invisalign aligners are virtually unnoticeable when worn. This lets you maintain your natural look and self-confidence while you undergo orthodontic treatment.

Better Dental Health — Unlike braces, Invisalign doesn’t have extra nooks and crannies that trap food particles and bacteria. Invisalign doesn’t require any special brushing or flossing techniques to keep your teeth healthy, either. Just take your aligners out to brush and floss as normal.

Quick Treatment Times — Traditional braces can require multiple years to be fully effective. Alternatively, Invisalign treatment usually completes in a much speedier time frame – only 8 to 18 months!

McElroy Smiles By Design also offers ClearCorrect Braces as an alternative to Invisalign for patients who are interested in exploring all their teeth straightening options. Much like Invisalign, ClearCorrect utilizes a series of clear removable aligners to straighten your teeth, and it carries all the same benefits as Invisalign.Dr. McElroy will be happy to discuss ClearCorrect as a potential alternative to Invisalign during your initial exam and consultation.
