How does Invisalign Work?
The virtually invisible aligners, which are made of a thermoplastic material uniquely developed for the Invisalign treatment plan, look similar to teeth-whitening trays. A series of Invisalign aligners are custom-made for you, to move your teeth in the sequence determined by your doctor. Each set of aligners is worn for about two weeks before moving onto the next set of aligners in your treatment plan. Invisalign also allows you to view your own virtual treatment plan when you start so you can see how your straight teeth will look when your treatment is complete.
How often do I need to wear my aligners?
It is recommended that you wear your aligners for 20-22 hours per day and only remove them for eating or drinking, brushing and flossing.
Will wearing Invisalign aligners affect my speech?
Invisalign aligners may temporarily affect the speech of some people, and you may have a slight lisp for a day or two. However, as you get used to having aligners in your mouth, any lisp caused by the aligners should disappear.
How much does Invisalign cost?
Cost is always a concern, and only your doctor can determine the exact price of treatment. In most cases, Invisalign treatment is comparable to the cost of traditional braces. In the U.S., the cost of Invisalign treatment ranges from $3,500 to $8,000, with the national average at about $5,000. We offer NO INTEREST financing through CareCredit and Citibank. Our financial coordinator will be more than happy to help you fit the investment into your lifestyle.
Does insurance cover Invisalign?
Because medical benefits differ from policy to policy, you should review your personal coverage plan and check with your insurance provider. In general, if a patient has orthodontic coverage, Invisalign should be covered to the same extent as conventional braces.
Does Invisalign really work?
Yes. Over 1.5 million patients with a wide variety of dental challenges have been treated with Invisalign. Invisalign was developed with orthodontists and used in dental practices worldwide. Dr. Patel has treated many of her patients with Invisalign and has had excellent results. Patients love it.
We’d like to invite you in for an initial consultation with Dr. Nimisha Patel. Our first appointment is always complimentary, so you can learn more about Invisalign with no obligation. You can setup an appoinment by either calling us or online via 'Request An Appointment' form.

Couldn't have asked for a better experience!
"To say I dislike going to the dentist is an understatement. I was referred to Radiant Dental by a co-worker and was truly please and impressed by everything. They are so courteous and professional. Dr. Patel has great chairside manner and doesn't make you feel like she's only in it to get your money. So glad I found a dentist I feel like I can trust and with great office staff and assistants as well. Thanks for everything!"
