Sandy Springs cosmetic dentist Dr. Brenda Paulen is an Invisalign provider! Dr. Paulen was an early adopter of clear aligners and has been helping patients straighten their smiles with Invisalign since 2002.
She recommends Invisalign for patients with mild to moderate orthodontic concerns or those who are experiencing orthodontic relapse. Invisalign can be the perfect solution for adults, even those who have never worn braces before.
Invisalign can effectively treat a variety of dental health and cosmetic concerns including:
Crooked or misaligned teeth
Invisalign is often the perfect solution for teen and adult patients who prefer a more discreet orthodontic treatment option. The clear aligners are made to fit snugly over your teeth so that no one has to know you are wearing them. Worn for approximately 22 hours each day, they are also removable for enjoying your favorite foods and performing your daily oral hygiene routine.
Made from a unique hard-soft plastic that does not irritate the soft tissues and gums, most patients find that Invisalign is both convenient and comfortable. Learn more about the most popular cosmetic dentistry service we provide.

Real Results With Invisalign
Invisalign® What to Expect
Invisalign offers many benefits, including improved dental health. Straight teeth are important for a balanced bite and allow for more efficient brushing and flossing to prevent common problems like tooth decay and gum disease.
After a thorough examination, Dr. Paulen will create a personalized treatment plan using specialized computer software. A series of custom, clear, removable retainers will be worn for the specified treatment time. Patients can remove retainers daily for brushing and flossing to maintain good oral health throughout treatment.
How much does Invisalign cost?
Invisalign treatment cost will vary depending on the length of treatment and the number of aligners needed to achieve the desired result. On average, the cost of Invisalign treatment ranges from $3,500 to $8,000.
The national average is $5,000 per case. A minor treatment case, such as an adult with orthodontic relapse, may cost as little as $2,000. Dr. Paulen will evaluate your condition and let you know how much it will cost for you.
Are invisible braces covered by dental insurance?
Invisible braces may be covered in part by dental insurance with orthodontic benefits. Proud Smiles will help you with any billing and paperwork to maximize your dental insurance benefits. We also offer third-party financing and payment plans for patients concerned about the cost of Invisalign treatment.

Need A Retainer?
You don’t have to be an Invisalign user to benefit from Vivera retainers. Call our office to learn more today!
As with any dental procedure, there is a level of discomfort associated with treatment. Although, Invisalign treatment is gentle and should not cause significant pain. As your teeth gradually move into position, you may feel slight discomfort. This can be managed with over-the-counter medications but is not always necessary.
Yes! A retainer will greatly reduce the chances of developing orthodontic relapse, or the return of your crooked teeth. A retainer will help your teeth adjust and remain in their new straighter position. You risk undoing everything that your Invisalign treatment accomplished by not wearing a retainer and following all post-treatment instructions. The Vivera retainer program will include a new retainer every 6 months for 2 years. We recommend renewing this every 2 years to keep your retainers in good shape and to protect your investment in your smile.
Alternatively, for patients who grind their teeth or have been diagnosed with a TMJ disorder, Dr. Paulen may recommend a nightguard to prevent damage. This would substitute as a retainer and maintain your results from Invisalign treatment.
