Everyone wants to achieve perfect, uniform, and straight teeth. But teeth straightening traditionally involves wearing ugly metallic braces that cause considerable self-esteem issues and discomfort. No more — we offer Invisalign and clear aligners in San Diego to discreetly straighten your teeth without metallic braces!
Straighten Your Smile Without Ugly Braces
Forget the metallic mouth – there’s a new way for teeth straightening and it’s practically invisible. Clear aligners are the latest dental technology to take the orthodontic world by storm. Unlike traditional braces, which use brackets and wires to move teeth into place, clear aligners are made of a clear, flexible material that’s almost invisible when you wear them. You can straighten your teeth and achieve the perfect smile without worrying about ugly braces!
What are Clear Aligners?
Clear aligner therapy is an orthodontic treatment that uses clear, plastic trays to straighten teeth. Clear aligners gradually move your teeth into the desired position. Each aligner is made specifically for your teeth, and you’ll wear each for about two weeks before moving to the next. As you progress through the aligners, your teeth will slowly shift into place. Clear aligners in San Diego are almost invisible, making them popular for adults and teens who want to straighten their teeth.
“Thank you Dr. Mirkhan for being the reason my smile is beautiful! My Invisalign experience has been manageable because of your frequent, informative appointments and warm stuff. I’m eternally grateful! Thank you for your support and kindness.”Actual Patient
“Dr. Mirkhan, where to start here? From replacing nearly all of my fillings (my old dentist failed me miserably) to the individualized care I received during my teeth straightening (process much like Invisalign) Dr. Mirkhan was so knowledgeable and kind and patient. She can advise on anything from whitening to more serious gum grafting or dental surgical procedures. She does the cleaning herself and inspects each tooth individually. That gives me peace of mind knowing my dentist personally sees each tooth. At my previous dentist, I would only see the hygienist on cleaning days. Clearly the care here at Dr. Mirkhan's is of the highest standard, my teeth look and feel better than they ever have. My sensitivity has lessened, I've got a good regimen going to maintain their color and perfectly fitting retainers to keep my alignment perfect. I highly recommend Dr. Mirkhan and her dental team.”Former Patient
“[Dr. Mirkhan] has been spot on with all levels of treatment from filling, replacing, healing disease, teeth straightening and whitening. This is the care and concern I would expect from the highest level of service.”Actual Patient

Your Clear Aligner Options
Advanced Dentistry & Implant Center performs teeth straightening using two possible brands — Invisalign and ClearCorrect. Both are clear aligner systems that use a series of custom-made, comfortable, barely visible plastic aligners that gradually move your teeth into place, but our Scripps-affiliated dentist recommends the appropriate clear aligner system after a thorough evaluation.
Invisalign is the world’s leading brand for clear aligners. Invisalign aligners are thicker than ClearCorrect and can straighten teeth in 10 to 12 months. Invisalign aligners are produced using the cutting-edge SmartTrack thermoplastic material, one of the most sophisticated materials for clear aligners. Invisalign aligners are also 3D printed for optimal accuracy.
ClearCorrect is the second largest manufacturer of clear aligners in the US, with a 70% patient satisfaction rate. ClearCorrect is thinner than Invisalign, so it may feel more comfortable. However, ClearCorrect also takes an average of 13.5 months to show the full effects of teeth straightening in San Diego. ClearCorrect aligners are 3D printed and then cut manually.
