    Why Invisalign? The Advantages of Invisible Braces

    Invisalign® – An Invisible Solution

    When deciding whether Invisalign® is right for you and your family, the first question that comes to mind is why? Invisalign®, the invisible braces of choice have more than 20 years of research with a total of 2.7 million patients seen worldwide. With a proven track record and up to 50% faster treatments, you can enjoy a comfortable, better fitting aligner with results you can see!

    If you’re located in the St. Petersburg, FL or Seffner, FL area, Dr. Weber from Kurt K. Weber, D.D.S., P.A. is one of the first wave of Invisalign certified general dentists since 2002 and continues to be a preferred provider in his area.

Both provide effective treatments for complex case that Dr. Weber will oversee personally, making small precise adjustments as needed.

    Health Benefits

    The benefits of Invisalign® along with straighter teeth can greatly increase your oral and overall health. Though having a better, more confident smile is often the reason most patients start treatment plans. They will also enjoy the benefits of healthier teeth and gums as they go hand in hand.

    Crowding or spacing between the teeth can lead to swollen and red gums. When your teeth are properly aligned, the gums become more secure around the tooth and develop a stronger defense against gum disease and other periodontal problems. With Invisalign®, you will gradually and gently align your teeth with invisible buttons and trays without the unsightly look of traditional metal braces. Typically, you will change out your Invisalign® aligners with new ones once every 2 weeks.


    Overall Health


    Having good oral health can lead to a good overall health. The bacteria that causes tooth decay and gum disease can cause sores in the mouth, tender gums, bad breath and lead to more serious conditions such as, heart disease, diabetes or stroke.  Because daily oral hygiene is important to your health, Invisalign® aligners are removable. Thus, making brushing your teeth and flossing easier.

    Properly aligned teeth will alleviate wear and tear on tooth enamel, jaw problems and improper bites such as, overbites, underbites, deep bites and open bites. Straight teeth can also correct speech, difficulties with chewing and increase your confidence with a beautiful smile. All these issues can be effectively treated with Invisalign®.


    Invisalign® vs Metal Braces

    With Invisalign® aligner trays, you can enjoy all their benefits. They’re invisible and removable. There is no discomfort from wires, no difficulty eating or problems with food getting caught in your braces. Here’s a quick comparison chart below.

    Additional Benefits

    • Added layer of protection whether you’re hiking or playing sports
    • Protection from wear and tear such as, grinding your teeth when you’re sleeping
    • You can use the aligner trays to whiten your teeth


    Clearly, Invisalign® has many pros to benefit from, but be sure to call or visit our St. Petersburg or Seffner office to schedule an appoint to see our dentist or ask our staff any questions. In some cases, Invisalign® may not always be the best solution for you. If so, Dr. Weber will determine the most effective treatment to give you “A Beautiful Smile for You!”

    What does Invisalign cost?

    A Testimony from Our Patient:

    Before I started Invisalign at Dr. Weber’s St. Petersburg office I had been out of braces for 2 years. Unfortunately, my teeth started to move again, even though I was given a metal retainer. During my time in braces I had considerable wear and tear on my teeth due to grinding my teeth at night.

    When I started my Invisalign case I was surprised on how little pain I had between my aligning trays. I was in treatment for 9 months and now wear a clear retainer at night which prevents me from grinding down my teeth after Dr. Weber had restored them. It’s been almost 10 years now and I often forget to wear my retainer but, my teeth have yet to move!
