This patient is 60 years old and he’s got Invisalign to correct an underbite that is causing excessive wear to his front teeth.

Using Invisalign, we are correcting the “end to end” bite, and pulling the front teeth into the proper position.

He’s only 6 months into treatment, but already halfway through.

For this, we work with a lab here in San Diego that has been doing dentistry here in San Diego for 15 years, but for the past 10 years, he’s been certified by the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, which is one of the most prestigious certifications you can get.
