Our Toluca Lake cosmetic dentist office gets many questions from patients about the merits and particularities of Invisalign treatment. Our dental team knows that the more information that you, the patient, have, the better decision you are able to make for your own dental future.

Read through this question and answer session from our dentist. We hope that this helps you feel more confident pursuing Invisalign treatment, if it is right for you.

Q: How old do I need to be in order to undergo Invisalign treatment?

A: Before you can straighten your teeth with Invisalign, you need to have all of your adult permanent teeth in place. Beyond that, Invisalign is suitable for patients of many ages—our dental team can give you a better idea of whether you are a good candidate.

Q: How long does Invisalign treatment take to deliver full results?

A: Invisalign treatment generally takes around a year to complete. The exact timeline for your treatment will depend on the state of your smile when we begin Invisalign. The easiest way to find out how long your treatment would probably take is to come in for a consultation with our dental team.

Q: How do I know what my smile will look like after Invisalign?
A: One great thing about Invisalign technology is that we can show you a mock up of your post-treatment smile before we even get started. This helps ensure that you will love your teeth when we are all done!
