Eat Whatever You Like!

Invisalign® for Teens is perfect for those who are actively engaged in sports, passionate about playing specific musical instruments, or simply want to avoid the spotlight that metal braces can bring at events like homecoming or in the yearbook.
As a teenager, you should have the freedom to pursue your interests and hobbies without worrying about how braces might affect your confidence at social gatherings. With Invisalign's clear, comfortable technology and the expert guidance of Dr. Rodrigo Viecilli, teenagers can embrace their true selves and take pride in their smiles like never before.
Perfect for Busy Schedules
Compared to the demanding schedule of traditional metal braces, Invisalign® typically demands fewer visits. With your Invisalign® aligners supplied in advance, each appointment consumes less "chair time."
On average, an Invisalign® for Teens patient will rendezvous with Dr. Rodrigo Viecilli approximately once every eight weeks, culminating in an overall treatment duration ranging from 9 to 15 months. It's the convenience you've been longing for in your orthodontic journey!
Invisalign® Vs. Braces
Invisalign® has emerged as a popular choice for those who dream of achieving a perfect smile without the inconvenience of traditional braces. It is designed to address a wide range of orthodontic concerns and often promise a slightly swifter treatment journey.
However, when it comes to cases that require tooth extraction or gap closure, Metal braces often have an edge because of the sturdy support provided by their brackets and wires. But this doesn't mean that Invisalign® can't work for extraction cases at all. Dr. Viecilli has had numerous successful outcomes; it just demands exceptional patient cooperation. As a result, we generally recommend this approach for adult patients.
While adults make up a significant portion of our patients, we are thrilled to offer Invisalign® Teen or regular Invisalign for your whole family – a discreet solution that's becoming increasingly popular among teenagers. Invisalign® Teen allows you to confidently realign your teeth without drawing attention to your ongoing orthodontic treatment.
Cost of Invisalign® in Austin
The cost of Invisalign® treatment is established in collaboration with the Invisalign® company, and it can vary based on the specific dental issues you're looking to address. At Limestone Hills Orthodontics, we recognize that each patient has unique requirements.
The price range typically falls between $500 and $8000, depending on the scope of treatment needed to achieve your desired smile. Various factors influence the cost of Invisalign®, and in many instances, it is on par with the expenses associated with traditional braces.
Moreover, it's worth noting that Invisalign® is often covered by most dental insurance plans in Texas. Dr. Rodrigo Viecilli will conduct a comprehensive evaluation to assess your specific concerns and map out a realistic plan to attain your perfect smile.
To make Invisalign® more affordable for your family, we offer flexible financing options. The Limestone Hills Orthodontics team is readily available to address any inquiries regarding financing, payment arrangements, and assistance with insurance claims. Your path to a radiant smile is within reach!
Invisalign Vs. Generic Aligners
Most Invisalign patents fell several years ago, which opened the door for many companies to use the same technologies. Dr. Viecilli has done extensive research to compare which features of aligners work best for each case and often recommends generic aligners, which can save up to $1000 in treatment costs.
Dr. Viecilli sees no clinical difference in the performance of the generic aligners. You get to save money because Dr. Viecilli often personally handles the positioning and planning of the treatment, a task typically done by a technician when using Invisalign.
When it comes to choosing between Invisalign® and generic aligners, extensive training in physics and biomechanics is what generates the best results, not the type of appliance. At our clinic, most patients pick generic aligners, save money, get straight teeth and can even use their “profit” to go out on vacation!
We offer both options in our practice. You can make a well-informed decision and always change to Invisalign if you'd like if you are willing to pay for the branding! We've never had a single patient do this, but some patients prefer the branded Invisalign aligners with all guarantees Dr. Viecilli provides.

Do I have to wear Invisalign Aligners 24/7?
Ensuring the success of your Invisalign® treatment means wearing your aligners diligently, ideally for a minimum of 22 hours daily, allowing them to work their magic in straightening your teeth. However, the beauty of Invisalign® at Limestone Hills Orthodontics lies in its flexibility – you can remove your aligners for those special moments and occasions.
Free Switch to Braces
At Limestone Hills Orthodontics, we understand that aligners are a more expensive form of treatment and sometimes teenagers may not cooperate as much as they think they could for treatment to be successful.
For this reason, to guarantee that every patient leaves the practice with successful results, we offer a FREE switch to metal braces for any patient that is not obtaining the desired results with Invisalign or generic aligners.
Invisalign® for Teens is an orthodontic treatment that utilizes clear, removable aligners to straighten teeth. These aligners are custom-made for each teenager and gradually shift teeth into their proper positions over time.
Invisalign® for Teens is suitable for many teenagers with a variety of orthodontic issues, but eligibility depends on individual circumstances. A consultation with an orthodontist can determine if Invisalign® is the right choice.
The average treatment duration is approximately 9 to 15 months, but this can vary depending on the complexity of the case. Dr. Rodrigo Viecilli will provide a personalized treatment timeline during the consultation.
Yes, Invisalign® for Teens is effective in correcting a wide range of orthodontic issues, including crowded teeth, spacing irregularities, and bite problems. The treatment plan will be tailored to address specific concerns. The key is cooperation, not the appliance.
Yes, one of the advantages of Invisalign® is that the aligners are removable, allowing teenagers to take them out for eating, special events, sports, and playing musical instruments. However, it's important to wear them for at least 22 hours a day for optimal results. That means you can only remove it for eating.
You can clean your aligners by gently brushing them with a soft toothbrush and lukewarm water. Avoid using hot water or abrasive cleaners, as they can damage the aligners. Special cleaning crystals or solutions are also available for added convenience. We provide those for sale at cost at the practice to keep your aligners shiny and clear and even slowly whiten your teeth!
Invisalign® treatment is often covered partially by dental insurance plans (to the extent braces are covered, usually), but coverage varies. Our office can help verify your insurance benefits for free and discuss payment options, including flexible financing plans.
If you lose or damage your aligners, contact our office immediately. We can provide guidance on what steps to take next, which may include ordering replacement aligners to ensure your treatment progresses smoothly. We don’t charge for extra aligners, only for rush shipping. Often, you can switch to the next aligner or back to your oldest aligner and wait without significant cost in shipping.
Much like with traditional braces, Dr. Rodrigo Viecilli will recommend that Invisalign® patients wear a retainer nightly after their treatment is completed. This step is crucial in maintaining your newly achieved alignment and preserving your newfound confident smile. We will discuss a protocol on how to best and how often wear your retainers at the end of treatment.
