Can you shift from traditional braces to Invisalign?

There are some patients that have successfully changed from traditional metal braces to Invisalign clear braces. We would be happy to give you a consultation and partner with you to help you get the prettiest smile you can.

Do Invisalign braces hurt?

At La Costa Dental Excellence, we do everything we can to make your visits with us pain-free. And typically, Invisalign braces wearers experience less pain than traditional braces wearers. However, when you get your new set of trays, you may experience some slight discomfort as the trays gradually adjust your teeth to create your new, gorgeous smile.

Is Invisalign really as convenient and awesome as it seems?

Our answer to you is yes! This system really is incredible! It works effectively, usually in less time than if you were wearing traditional braces, with less embarrassment because they’re invisible, and with far less pain than traditional braces. We really can’t say enough good things about Invisalign braces.

What is the cost of Invisalign?

Many people are concerned that the cost of Invisalign may be prohibitive. During our consultation, we will be happy to discuss the cost of Invisalign and you may be surprised that Invisalign actually can fit into your budget.
