The Invisalign® 5-Step Process

Knowing what to expect when you choose to get Invisalign® treatment with Center Plaza Dentistry will help you decide if it’s right for you and your lifestyle.

1. Initial Invisalign® Appointment

At your first appointment, Drs. Jaimeson Hofkes and Dr. Vivian Yin will discuss with you your cosmetic dentistry goals and review your oral history and digital x-rays. Some people may not be suitable for this type of teeth alignment process so we may review other options with you and make recommendations based on your needs. If you’re an ideal candidate for Invisalign® treatment, then we’ll discuss the treatment and estimated length of treatment.

2. Molding Process

The next step is the digital molding process. This may happen during your first appointment with the dentist or later depending on your schedule. Digital scans of your mouth, photographs, and digital x-rays will be taken to create an accurate model of your mouth and teeth. These are sent to the Invisalign® laboratory for your custom aligner trays to be made from.

3. Fitting the First Trays

When your Invisalign® trays arrive from the lab, and it's time for you to return for pick-up, we’ll call you to schedule an appointment. Our doctors may fit small attachments on your teeth in order to keep the trays in place. These buttons are clear, almost invisible, and pointless to install. We’ll confirm fitment and your aftercare program explained, you’re free to go.

4. Follow Up Appointments

A few weeks after your first tray is fitted, it’s time to return to Center Plaza Dentistry to check tooth movement and confirm tray fit. A series of trays make up the process. You’ll swap out these trays approx. every two weeks and you’ll return to Center Plaza Dentistry periodically to confirm tooth movement progress.

5. Straighter Teeth!

After the treatment, your teeth will have straightened out along a pre-determined path. Depending on the severity of your misalignment to begin with, the time may take longer or shorter. If worn as prescribed, you’re guaranteed to have a straighter smile over time.

    –Maite M.

He’s worked with us on crowns and implants and has left us completely satisfied.”

    –Carlos A.

  • “When my friend initially recommended Center Plaza, I hesitated since it was a 40-minute drive, but I decided to give them a try and it was so worth the drive. Their office is so clean and pretty and I’m impressed with Dr. Hofkes and his team. They make you feel so welcome and comfortable.”

    –Gerri M.

  • “I genuinely look forward to my visits, and Dr. Yin, Dr. Hofkes and their team are some of my favorite people ever. Comfort is one of their top priorities.

    –Alli O.

  • “Honestly the best dentist experience I’ve ever experienced! I had such a painless experience that I actually enjoy my visits to the dentist now. Big thanks to Dr. Hofkes for taking care and following up with me! I’ll see you guys on my next visit.”

    –Justin C.

  • “I moved to California last May, and was anxious about finding a new dentist. Luckily, I landed with Dr. Hofkes. He and his staff are wonderful, and he even came in early one day to handle a dental emergency for me. Typically I don’t leave reviews online, but in this case a positive review is warranted and well-deserved.”

    –Mark R.

  • “My wife is having another crown done today. The professionalism of this doctor and their staff continues to be very consistent and impressive. They’re very caring and are a patient-first oriented dental practice.”

While there are other options out there for straightening your teeth, no others offer the level of convenience, comfort, and visual aesthetic during treatment that Invisalign does. No matter what your stage in life, we offer a treatment that will have little impact on your day-to-day life during treatment with fabulous results after treatment completes.

In many circumstances orthodontic aligners aren't necessary. When you visit us for your complimentary consultation we will provide you with an accurate, honest diagnoses. If you don't actually need orthodontic treatment we won't try and push you into getting it.

The length of treatment depends on the severity of your case and can only be determined by your doctor; however, the average case takes about 12 months for adults, slightly less time for young adults and teens. The length of time necessary for a teen patient may vary and can be determined by your doctor.

Invisalign results last just as well as traditional braces as long as you wear your retainers regularly as your we recommend.

Of course, there are. The doctors won't lecture or judge you for your dental problems. Every patient is unique, and we understand that sometimes circumstances can lead to dental problems a patient might find embarrassing.
