Dr. Nguyen is a certified Invisalign® Provider

You may consider Invisalign® to get the beautiful smile you've always wanted — without braces. A complimentary consultation with Dr. Nguyen can determine if Invisalign® is right for you.

What is it?

Invisalign® is a popular alternative to straighten teeth without braces. Invisalign® uses a series of clear, removable aligners to gradually straighten teeth, without metal, braces, or wires.


How does Invisalign® work?

Invisalign® uses 3-D computer imaging technology to formulate a complete treatment plan from which a series of custom-made, clear aligners are produced. Each aligner moves teeth incrementally and is worn for about two weeks, then replaced by the next in the series until the final position is achieved. 

What are the benefits of Invisalign® ?

Invisalign® is clear and removable, and more subtle than metal braces. Unlike with metal braces, you can eat and drink without restrictions and brush and floss normally to maintain good oral hygiene. Invisalign® is more comfortable, since there are no metal brackets or wires that may cause mouth irritation. No metal braces and wires means you spend less time at the dental office getting adjustments. Invisalign® allows you to view your own virtual treatment plan before you start—so you can see how your straight teeth will look when your treatment is completed.


Step 1: Consultation and Treatment plan.

Straighten Teeth with Invisalign After your complimentary consultation, you and Dr. Nguyen will develop a treatment plan specifically designed to fit your needs. Then bite impressions of your teeth are taken, which Invisalign® will use to custom-make a series of clear, removable aligners that will gradually move your teeth into a wonderful new smile.


Step 2: Your aligners are created.

Clear Braces Your aligners are created via precision computer mapping and design and then are shipped to your doctor.


Step 3: Wear your aligners.

Invisible Braces You'll receive your aligners at each visit with Dr. Nguyen, switching to a new aligner every two weeks as your teeth move little by little. Wear each set of aligners day and night for a two week period, removing them only to eat, brush and floss. Your visit with Dr. Nguyen will usually be every 6 weeks. Each case is a little different, but on average, treatment lasts about a year.
