Sunnyvale Dentist Dr. Antonious is a Certified Invisalign® Provider
Consider Invisalign® to get the beautiful straight teeth you’ve always wanted — without braces. A complimentary consultation with Dr. Antonious can determine if Invisalign is right for you.
What is Invisalign®?
Invisalign® uses a series of invisible, removable, and comfortable aligners that no one can tell you’re wearing. So, you can smile more during treatment as well as after. Invisalign is made with 3-D computer imaging technology and has been proven effective.
How does it Work?
You wear each set of aligners for about 2 weeks, removing them only to eat, drink, brush, and floss. As you replace each aligner with the next in the series, your teeth will move — little by little, week by week — until they have straightened to the final position Dr. Antonious has prescribed. You’ll visit Dr. Antonious about once every 6 weeks to ensure that your treatment is progressing as planned. Total treatment time averages 9-15 months but this will vary from case to case.
The Clear Alternative to Metal Braces
By using a series of clear, removable aligners, Invisalign® straightens your teeth with results you’ll notice sooner than you think. The course of treatment involves changing aligners approximately every two to three weeks, moving your teeth into straighter position step by step, until you have a more beautiful smile. And unlike braces, these clear aligners can be removed while you eat and brush your teeth as usual.
Less Treatment Time
An average Invisalign® course of treatment takes about a year. You’ll see your Invisalign® Accredited Dentist every 6 to 8 weeks for adjustments and to check progress. At regular intervals, you’ll receive a new set of custom-molded clear aligners to continue the straightening process. The total number of clear aligners is specific to you, determined by your dentist for your course of treatment.
Clear And Comfortable
Since Invisalign® is practically invisible, there’s no unwarranted attention to your mouth. In fact, very few people will notice at all – unless you tell them. They’re comfortable to wear and remove easily when you eat, brush, and floss.

How Invisalign® can Improve the Health of your Mouth
Teeth that are crowded or too widely spaced can create unhealthy conditions, including swollen gums, redness and pocketing, all of which are signs of periodontal disease. As Invisalign® invisibly straightens your teeth, it can also do great things for the health of your mouth.
Clinical studies have shown that gum health may improve with the use of Invisalign® during orthodontic treatment. Properly aligned teeth can help gums “fit” tighter around each tooth, which may lead to better periodontal health. Unlike braces, with Invisalign®, you can brush and floss normally, which can help prevent tooth decay and periodontal disease.
Unlike traditional orthodontics or braces, Invisalign® has no metal bands or wires to trap food and plaque. Maintaining a good oral hygiene program will also reduce chances of plaque buildup, tooth decay and periodontal disease.
Improved Chewing and Speech
For some people, incorrectly positioned teeth and jaws can exacerbate speech difficulties and chewing problems. Correcting your bite by straightening your teeth can help improve both.
Lower Risk of Trauma and Abnormal Wear
Properly aligned teeth can be less stressful on supporting bone and jaw joints.
Is Invisalign® For Me?
Invisalign® can be used to treat the vast majority of common problems for adults and teens.
Whether your smile needs minor improvements or more extensive adjustments, Invisalign® can certainly help. It’s successful in treating overly crowded or widely spaced teeth. It can also relieve more complex issues, including overbites, underbites and even crossbites. In fact, an Invisalign® Accredited Dentist can use Invisalign® clear aligners in all or part of just about any treatment plan.

Made to fit your lifestyle, not change it.
Because Invisalign® uses clear plastic aligners to position and straighten teeth, you can keep your active lifestyle during treatment. Unlike braces, Invisalign® aligners have no metal bands or wires to irritate your mouth. So go ahead and be as active as you like. Since Invisalign® is removable, just take the clear aligners out for special events or if you’re going to indulge in a sticky, gooey snack.
Look your Best During and After Treatment
Of course you want to look great, at work, at school, with friends. Maybe you speak to groups or conduct meetings. You still can. Because Invisalign® is clear and nearly invisible, most people will never know you’re straightening your teeth – unless you tell them. And when your course of treatment has ended, you can feel more confident, whether in front of people or not. You’re going to have a stunning smile.
