Invisalign® Braces With Gentle Dental

One solution that we recommend to patients who want straighter, healthier looking teeth is Invisalign® Braces! Our Invisalign® certified dentists can gradually correct cosmetically damaged smiles using clear Invisalign® liners, eliminating the need for invasive procedures and metal braces. Invisalign® is a revolutionary treatment for adolescents and adults with problems like crowded teeth, gaps in teeth, underbites, overbites, crossbites, crooked teeth, and more! Ask our team if Invisalign® Braces are right for you!

How Invisalign® Braces Work

Invisalign® Braces are invisible liners that are placed over your teeth, acting as a replacement for traditional metal braces. Unlike metal braces, Invisalign® can be removed when eating and brushing your teeth, making them much more comfortable and convenient! Invisalign® Braces can fix your smile in as little as 12 weeks – much, much faster than traditional braces. 

The Invisalign® Braces Process

Just like with many cosmetic dental procedures, the first step in getting Invisalign® Braces is having them be custom fit to your mouth. Once your Invisalign® aligners have been fitted, we recommend that you wear them for at least 22 hours per day, including sleeping. The more often you wear your aligners, the faster and more successful your results will be. As your teeth begin to shift into a perfect smile, we’ll see you for follow up appointments to make adjustments to your aligners. In as little as 12 weeks, your smile can look better than it ever has!


Oral Cancer Screening

Our dental team is the first line in defensive to address oral cancer. Oral cancer screening is a necessary and preventative step that is critical to one’s overall health.


While brushing and flossing are the two most important factors to prevent cavities, we offer dental sealants which protects your teeth from the harmful bacteria that cause cavities. Sealant is a completely painless procedure that only takes a few minutes.

Are Invisalign® Braces Right For Me?

If you think that Invisalign® may be right for you, you should consult with your dentist to make sure they’re a good fit for you. Most teenagers and adults with full-grown adult teeth are a good fit for Invisalign® aligners if they desire a straighter smile. Make sure to tell your dentist about any habits that may cause your aligners to stain like smoking and drinking habits!

Real Clients, Real Stories

This was my first cleaning in 3-4 years… and it was honestly way less stressful then I had hyped it up to be in my head. After calling around to different dental offices, Gentle Dental was one of the only options I found to accept my insurance so I called and made an appointment. I arrived and waited only 5 minutes to be called in. Christine did my cleaning and was so thorough and calming, she explained everything as she went and periodically checked in to make sure I was doing okay. After X-rays, an in depth evaluation, cleaning, and check in with Dr Sun, I was in and out in just a little over an hour. Quick and painless. Highly recommend Gentle Dental!
