Are you afraid to show your smile due to crooked teeth? Looking for a discrete way to straighten your smile that doesn't involve braces?

Invisalign® clear aligners are a comfortable and simplified orthodontic treatment for many misalignment issues.

Gulch Dental Studio in Nashville, TN, can help you straighten your teeth and get you back to smiling with confidence.

What Is Invisalign?


Invisalign is a series of clear plastic aligners molded to fit your teeth in a way that applies constant but gentle pressure, causing your teeth to straighten. They are an orthodontic landmark and a great alternative to metal brackets and wires for those with minor to moderate alignment issues. Our practice is known throughout Nashville as the best place for a cosmetic upgrade to your smile, and we are here to help you experience the benefits of Invisalign treatment.

How Clear Aligners Work

Like braces, Invisalign is designed to move your teeth a little at a time. After digital impressions are taken by your dentist, you will receive a series of plastic aligners to adjust your teeth and gradually shift them into the proper position. It is recommended that you wear your aligners 22 hours each day, removing them only to eat or drink liquids other than water. Each set of aligners is worn about two weeks before moving onto the next set.

The Process of Invisalign Treatment

Each patient's smile is unique, so each treatment plan will be personalized to their needs.
Each patient's smile is unique, so each treatment plan will be personalized to their needs.

Assessment and Imaging

Your dentist will evaluate your overall oral health, then take a series of X-rays, photographs, and impressions of your teeth. 

Planning Treatment

Based on your examination and imaging, your dentist can design a custom orthodontic treatment plan. They will then work with the aligner software to develop your clear aligners.

Receive Your Aligners

Once the aligners are created, you will wear them in stages based on your dentist's recommendation. Because your teeth will be shifting differently with each aligner set, you will periodically visit our office so your dentist can see how you are progressing.

Enjoy Your New Smile

Once you reach the end of the series of aligners, no more aligners are needed. However, just like with braces, you will need to wear a retainer to keep your teeth in place.

A wonderful experience for my first visit. Clean, beautiful office. Friendly reception and great service. I had them note that I wanted a gentle hygienist after having a couple bad past experiences. Then once my appointment came around, my hygienist and doctor verbally confirmed that with me during my cleaning! It’s so comforting having such great bedside manner from your healthcare providers.

Pros and Cons of Invisalign Aligners



The completely clear plastic makes Invisalign virtually undetectable while wearing the aligners.


Being removable makes Invisalign easy to clean and gives you the freedom to eat anything you like.


Invisalign is a quick and effective tool to achieve a straight smile. With proper use, you could see your new smile in as little as six months.


Patients are often thrilled to learn that Invisalign is comparable in price to traditional orthodontic treatment.


Easily Lost

Since the aligners are removable, they can easily be lost or misplaced. This is generally a concern for parents who have teenagers using Invisalign. However, Invisalign First (previously Invisalign Teen) comes with replacement aligners for this reason. No matter what, be sure to take care whenever removing your aligners so you know where they are at all times.


Clear aligners can become stained by certain foods and drinks. This is why it is so important to be sure your mouth is rinsed and cleaned before reinserting your aligners.

Only for Mild to Moderate Cases

Invisalign is effective for most misalignment cases, but for more severe cases, they may not be enough. That is why talking with your dentist is always the first step in developing a treatment plan to straighten your teeth.

Cost of Invisalign

Since each person's dental care plan is unique, the cost of treatment will vary for each patient. Typically, Invisalign is around the same price as traditional metal braces, and many basic insurance plans will contribute to the cost of this treatment.

Not Sure if Invisalign Is Right for You? Request a Consultation Today

Invisalign is a discreet option for many orthodontic concerns. However, not everyone is a good candidate for this orthodontic alternative. During your initial consultation at our Nashville practice, your dentist will examine your mouth and discuss your history and goals to help you determine if Invisalign is right for you. 

Get started today by requesting a consultation online or by calling our practice in Nashville, TN, today.

Invisalign Candidacy

While Invisalign is a great treatment for a variety of orthodontic concerns, not everyone is a good candidate. You may be a good candidate if:
  • Your concerns are mild to moderate: More severe orthodontic issues are best treated with traditional treatments like braces.
  • You're committed to treatment: Invisalign is most effective when worn for 20 to 22 hours a day. You must be committed to wearing your trays for the best results. 
  • You're in good oral health: If you have issues like gum disease or tooth decay, these should be addressed before your treatment begins.

Frequently Asked Questions  About Invisalign

Don't I need to visit an orthodontist for Invisalign?

No. Though an orthodontist specializes in orthodontic concerns, our dentists are trained in using Invisalign to straighten smiles. The benefit of seeing a dentist over an orthodontist is that you can undergo treatment for a wide variety of needs at our Nashville office, including routine check-ups and cleanings. This means all your dental care can be handled under one roof, rather than by visiting both a dentist and an orthodontist.

Q. How long does Invisalign treatment take?

A. This will depend on your orthodontic concerns. Some mild issues can be corrected in as little as six months, while more moderate issues can require 12 to 18 months.

Q. Can my child undergo Invisalign treatment?

A. This will vary from child to child. A good candidate for Invisalign will be responsible enough to wear their clear aligners for 20 to 22 hours a day and maintain the trays. 

Ready for an Even More Youthful Appearance?

A straighter smile is just one step towards an overall younger look. That is why our Nashville, TN office proudly offers BOTOX® Cosmetic. Reducing laugh lines and crows' feet can complement your newly straightened smile for powerful rejuvenation. Reach out to our office to find out how we can help you achieve a more youthful appearance.
