Dr. Montano and Dr. Cardall are Certified Invisalign® Providers in Bakersfield, CA.
Get the beautiful straight teeth you’ve always wanted — without braces. Invisalign® is a discreet alternative to braces that is popular with many patients. Unlike many orthodontists, we offer Invisalign® at the same price as braces. A complimentary consultation with Dr. Montano or Dr. Cardall, Bakersfield’s only “Top 1%” provider, 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. More than 70% of orthodontists in the US and Canada are certified to treat with Invisalign®.
Why would I want Invisalign®?
Not only are the aligners invisible, they are removable, so you can eat and drink what you want while in treatment. Plus, brushing and flossing are no problem. They are also comfortable, with no metal to cause mouth abrasions during treatment. Plus, no metal and wires usually means you spend less time in your doctor’s office getting adjustments. Invisalign® also allows you to view your own virtual treatment plan when you start so you can see how your straight teeth will look when your treatment is complete.
How does Invisalign® 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. Montano has prescribed. You’ll visit Drs. Montano and Cardall about once every 6 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.
