Are misaligned teeth causing you to hide your smile? Does the thought of wearing braces make you feel uncomfortable or embarrassed?

Invisalign® clear aligners are a modern orthodontic alternative. They can comfortably and discreetly align your bite.

Dr. Gerald Lande in Carmel, IN, can create a customized Invisalign treatment plan to straighten your smile and enhance your confidence.

You Don't Need to See an Orthodontist To Straighten Your Smile With Invisalign

Another advantage of Invisalign over other orthodontic options is that you don't need to find an orthodontist for treatment. You can come to our Carmel dental practice for all your Invisalign treatment needs.

Even if it turns out that Invisalign isn't the best treatment for you, you may be able to benefit from several other orthodontic options Dr. Lande offers.



SureSmile® is another brand of clear aligners that can discreetly straighten your teeth without brackets and wires.

Exploring Candidacy Do You Make a Good Invisalign Candidate?

Most patients who want to straighten their smiles make good candidates for Invisalign. During your consultation, Dr. Lande will review your oral health history and cosmetic goals to determine whether Invisalign or another orthodontic treatment is best for you.

Good Invisalign candidates are:

In Good Oral Health

You should be in good oral health and free of any gum disease or tooth decay before starting any orthodontic program, including Invisalign. Dr. Lande can gently treat any outstanding oral health issues right here at our office.

Committed To Treatment

Invisalign aligners must be worn for at least 22 hours a day to produce the best results. Patients need to be committed to this timeline and stick to wearing their aligners as directed, only removing them to eat and brush.

Dealing With Mild to Moderate Misalignment

Invisalign works best for patients with minor to moderate misalignment issues. Patients with severe misalignment may need traditional braces. However, you can begin your treatment with braces and transition to Invisalign to discreetly finish your treatment.

Paying for Treatment We Accept Most Dental Insurance Plans


Many dental insurance plans partially cover the cost of orthodontics. Our friendly staff will be happy to review your plan to ensure you are maximizing your benefits.

The Invisalign Treatment Timeline

Invisalign uses custom-made aligners to gradually move your teeth into alignment. You will wear your aligners for at least 22 hours each day and switch to a new aligner set about every two weeks. Dr. Lande will go into further detail during your Invisalign consultation so you will know exactly what to expect during your treatment.

Invisalign typically takes 12–18 months to achieve optimal results. During your treatment, you'll wear your clear aligner trays for at least 22 hours a day.

Digital Impressions

During your initial consultation, our dentist will take digital impressions of your teeth. Unlike messy putty impressions, digital impressions are quicker, more comfortable, and provide more detailed images to create your aligners.

Aligner Fabrication

Your digital impressions, along with Dr. Lande's treatment plan, will be sent to a trusted Invisalign lab so trained technicians can create your custom clear aligners.

Wearing Your Aligners

You should wear your aligners for at least 22 hours a day, only removing them to eat, drink, and clean your teeth. Each set should be worn for around two weeks before moving on to your next set. 

Dental Checkups

You will visit our office every few weeks throughout your Invisalign treatment so Dr. Lande can ensure your teeth are moving properly and that you are on track with your treatment timeline.

Enjoy Your New Smile

Once treatment is complete, you can enjoy a straighter, healthier smile. Dr. Lande will fit you for a retainer that you can wear while you sleep to maintain the results of your treatment.

Maintain Your Results You Can Have a Straighter, Healthier Smile for Life

With proper care, you can enjoy the benefits of your straight, beautiful smile for years to come.

Practice Good Oral Hygiene

Continue to brush twice daily and floss once daily following clear aligner treatment. This will prevent plaque and bacteria buildup that can lead to tooth decay, gum disease, and tooth loss, affecting the appearance and health of your smile.

Attend Regular Checkups

Continue to visit our Carmel practice every six months for routine dental cleanings. Dr. Lande can help you prevent any oral health issues and ensure your smile still looks its best.

Wear Your Retainer

Once your Invisalign treatment is over, it can be tempting to forgo wearing your retainer at night. However, the retainer will help keep your teeth in their newly adjusted position, which lets you prevent the need for time-consuming revision orthodontic work.
