Invisalign Teen


Clear Aligners for Teens from Your Newport Coast Orthodontist

At Starnes Orthodontics, we provide the communities of Newport Beach, Costa Mesa, and Newport Coast with high quality, individualized orthodontic treatment to help our patients achieve the healthy and attractive smiles they deserve! As a Newport Beach orthodontist with years of experience improving smiles, Dr. Starnes gives teenagers the opportunity to get the smiles of their dreams using Invisalign Teen clear aligners.

Invisalign Teen is ideal for the teenager who could benefit from orthodontic treatment but doesn’t want to wear highly visible metal braces that are bonded to teeth for the duration of the treatment process. With Invisalign Teen, you can achieve your best smile possible using clear aligners so you can capture all your teenage memories with complete confidence! Since the aligners are removable and virtually invisible, you can straighten your teeth very conveniently, without most people even noticing. And you can continue enjoying all your favorite foods while brushing and flossing normally to maintain good oral health.

Newport Beach Invisalign® Treatment for Teens

Invisalign Teen is the perfect teeth-straightening system that fits seamlessly into the busy lifestyles of teens. With a Blue Dot Wear Indicator on each aligner to show how long it’s been worn, six free replacement aligners in case some are lost or broken, and special Eruption Tabs to hold space for unerupted teeth, Invisalign Teen addresses all the issues teenagers face when improving their smiles with orthodontic treatment!

How Invisalign Teen® Works

  • Wear each set of aligners for about two weeks.
  • Remove the aligners when eating, drinking, brushing and flossing.
  • Visit your Newport Beach orthodontist every 4 to 6 weeks so our orthodontist can check your progress.
  • Total treatment time averages 6 to 15 months.
  • Average number of aligner sets used in treatment is between 18 and 30.

Who Can Wear Invisalign Teen®?

Invisalign Teen can be used to treat a wide range of orthodontic conditions including:

  • Overly crowded teeth
  • Widely spaced teeth
  • Crossbites

  • Improving your smile very discreetly due to the transparency of the aligners
  • Experiencing more comfort during treatment with no metal wires or brackets present that can poke and irritate the inside of your mouth
