The decision to straighten your teeth affects not only the appearance of your smile, but your lifestyle as well.

Invisible braces are an orthodontic treatment that uses removable alignment trays to straighten teeth. Your dentist in Coral Gables, FL will fit you with custom-designed alignment trays that slowly shift your teeth into the desired position. Every few weeks, you will receive a new set of trays until your teeth are perfectly aligned. The trays are barely visible in your mouth – your friends, family and coworkers may not even notice they are there. The smooth plastic surface will not scratch or damage the inside of your mouth and you can remove the trays for eating, cleaning, and special occasions. Schedule a dental consultation with Dr. Velazquez to find out if invisible braces are right for you!
Invisalign® is a custom-made aligner that is interchanged roughly every two weeks for a period of six to eighteen months, or longer depending on the severity of misalignment. Similar to a mouth or dental retainer (which is designed to keep teeth from shifting out of place), an Invisalign® aligner is used for orthodontic treatment as a technique to move and properly align teeth for a beautiful smile. This clear aligner is usually computer generated from a mold (or impression) of the patient’s teeth—taken by Dr. Velazquez and the fitting is unique to each patient only.
