Invisalign and Invisalign Teen
Invisalign is the virtually invisible way to straighten your teeth without braces, using a series of clear, removable aligners to straighten your teeth without metal wires or brackets. You wear each set of clear aligners for about two 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 your orthodontist or dentist has prescribed. You’ll visit your orthodontist or dentist about once every six weeks to ensure that your treatment is progressing as planned.
Total treatment time averages 9-15 months and the average number of aligners worn during treatment is between 18 and 30, but both will vary from case to case. At Dental Care of Corona we are proud to be Elite providers for invisalign. Elite Preferred has achieved an extraordinary level of Invisalign case experience and generally represents the top 2% of all providers in the Nation.

Six Month Smiles
Traditional braces can take years. Six-month smiles can get the aesthetic, straightened look that many patients, including adults that need braces, desire in just 6 months!
This is done by mainly focusing on correcting just the teeth in the front and not making major changes to your bite. It is similar to traditional braces but much more aesthetic as we use a white wire and white brackets. It is the fastest way to get that perfect teeth look without doing veneers.
At Dental Care of Corona we use a soft-tissue laser to comfortably and efficiently perform a variety of dental procedures. The laser is the tool of choice to decontaminate gum pockets, re-contour gum lines, treat canker sores and fever blisters, remove suspicious lesions for biopsy, and more.
Laser dentistry is more comfortable than traditional dental surgery. Because the laser seals and sterilizes tissue as it goes, there’s minimal bleeding and no need for stitches. Procedure and recovery time are fast, and most patients resume their normal activities quickly following laser surgery. Many patients report that they feel virtually no discomfort during or after treatment with our soft-tissue laser. Soft tissue lasers are the sort of high tech dentistry you can expect at our office.
If you have missing teeth, it is crucial to replace them. Without all your teeth, chewing and eating can destabilize your bite and cause you discomfort. When teeth are missing, your mouth can shift and even cause your face to look older. Implants are a great way to replace your missing teeth.
An implant is a new tooth made of steel and porcelain that looks just like your natural tooth. Your implant is composed of two parts that mimic a tooth’s root and crown. The implant’s “root” is a titanium steel rod placed into the jaw bone to act as a root. Once the rod is in place, a porcelain crown is attached to replace the top part of your tooth. Implants may also be used to anchor dentures, especially lower dentures that tend to shift when you talk or chew. Plus, for patients with removable partial dentures, implants can replace missing teeth so that you have a more natural-looking smile.
