What is Invisalign?
Invisalign uses a series of custom-made retainers, called aligners, to gradually straighten your teeth. Invisalign aligners are completely clear, smooth, and removable. This means no irritation from metal braces, no off-limits foods, and no interference with your life! Every patient is different, but treatment typically takes around 9 to 15 months for most adults. Teens can expect to wear Invisalign as long as they would traditional braces.
Your treatment begins with x-rays, pictures, and impressions, which Invisalign uses to produce a comprehensive 3D image of your smile and bite. Dr. Corsa will use this 3D image to develop your personalized treatment plan, including an estimated length of treatment time. Using this 3D image, you’ll even see a virtual representation of the movement of your teeth in each phase of aligners.
After we study every facet of your smile and develop a treatment plan, a series of custom-made aligners is created just for you. Your first aligner is a slightly straighter version of your smile starting out. You’ll wear the aligners throughout the day, removing them to eat, brush, and floss. The aligners will completely cover your teeth, and we bet no one will be able to tell you’re wearing them!
After approximately one to two weeks, you’ll receive a new set of aligners to wear. Each subsequent set is a slightly straighter version of the last set, allowing your teeth to gradually and gently shift into your final, perfect smile. Invisalign treatment plans can include between 10-50 aligners, based on your current smile and bite. You’ll meet with Dr. Corsa approximately every six to ten weeks to check on your progress with Invisalign. Of course, you can always call us if you have any questions in the meantime!
Once you’ve completed the initial series of aligners, Dr. Corsa will determine if an additional series of aligners is necessary to perfect your smile. Once you finish, it’s time to celebrate that brand new smile! Dr. Corsa will help you with how and how often to wear your retainers, so you can keep that beautiful smile in place.

Is Invisalign right for me?
Invisalign is an attractive option for straightening your smile without the look or limitations of traditional metal braces. Today, most smiles and bites can be treated with Invisalign clear aligners, but Dr. Corsa will determine your eligibility for Invisalign and develop a custom treatment plan for you at a free consultation. Why do we love Invisalign? There are three big reasons:
- 1. Easy to Wear
Invisalign in San JoseInvisalign works best if you’re able to wear the aligners 20-22 hours per day. However, you only need to take out the clear, smooth aligners to eat, brush, and floss! The aligners are clear and completely smooth, making them comfortable and virtually undetectable.
- 2. Removable
Can’t imagine a movie without buttery popcorn? Life just wouldn’t be the same without caramel apples? Because Invisalign aligners are removable, no foods are off limits! You can also temporarily remove the aligners to play a woodwind instrument or replace the aligners with a traditional mouth guard to participate in team sports, both of which can be difficult activities with traditional braces.
- 3. Virtually Invisible
Sure, Invisalign aligners are removable, so you could take them out for big events or important photos. But because Invisalign aligners are virtually invisible, you simply won’t need to. The treatment lets you straighten your smile so inconspicuously, you might have to show your friends before-and-after pictures to convince them you’re an Invisalign patient!
