Starting Your Invisalign Journey

There are many benefits to aligning your teeth with Invisalign®. Invisalign gives you the ability to straighten your teeth in Weston, Florida, without the need for traditional brackets and wires, better known as braces. Unlike metal braces, this type of teeth straightening is very popular among both teens and adults because the straightening devices (aligners) are more comfortable, hardly visible and less restricting to your lifestyle. Your Weston dentist, Dr. John M. Garcia has aligned thousands of patients smiles in as little as 6 months. The process to get started is easy!

Getting Started

  1. See your Invisalign Smile with Smileview

Smileview with Invisalign lets you see your potential smile after treatment within seconds. Simply snap a selfie, upload it to the Smileview and voila! Within seconds you see the results and then you can ask your Weston dentist, Dr. Garcia, about the treatment duration, possibilities and even schedule your complimentary Invisalign consultation.

  1. Book an In-Person Consultation

To get an accurate assessment of your smile and the treatment needed, Dr. John M. Garcia DDS will evaluate your smile at our Weston dental office. This appointment is complimentary, fast and easy. We will start by taking smile photos and uploading them into our dental practice software. Then we capture a quick digital 3D scan with our iTero element.

Dr. Garcia will ask what you want to change about your smile, what you like and dislike, and from there will formulate a treatment plan.

  1. Your Invisalign Aligners

If you choose to start your Invisalign journey, our Weston office will submit your 3D scans to Invisalign and give them the thumbs up to create your treatment aligners. Once they arrive at our Weston office you will come in and receive your first few sets. This is a key step in your success.

Your Weston dentist will ensure your aligners fit well, answer your questions, and let you know what to expect. When you pick up your first custom aligners, Dr. Garcia will examine your smile, ensuring you are set to go!

  1. Regular Dentist Check-ins

You’ll likely schedule face-to-face check-ups at our Weston dental office every 6-8 weeks to check your progress and pick up the next batch of aligners. Unlike online mail-order aligners, if you have questions mid-treatment or need Dr. Garcia to check your treatment progress, we are here for you.

 

Transforming Your Smile Right from Your First Fitting

Your Invisalign aligners are virtually transparent and easy to take out, so you can keep brushing and eating as you normally would—total freedom to live your life uninterrupted. Depending on your case, you could complete your treatment in as little as 6 months with your Weston dentist. But you’ll start seeing results in a matter of weeks.
