How Dinisa Found Her Perfect Smile with Invisalign and Harmony Dental

After treatment, our patient is happy and smiling

Having a beautiful and confident smile is important for most people.

However, sometimes gaps between teeth and other cosmetic issues can make people self-conscious about their appearance.

This was the case for our patient, Dinisa, who came to Harmony Dental seeking a solution for her smile.


Dinisa was concerned about the appearance of her smile due to multiple gaps between her front teeth.

These gaps affected her aesthetic appearance and created disharmony in her overall smile.

Dinisa had undergone traditional braces in her younger years to address the same issue, but over time her teeth had shifted, leading to the gaps reappearing.

This is a common issue observed by Dr. Da Costa as teeth shift over time, especially if patients don’t follow through with retention treatment after removing the braces.

As a result, Dinisa was seeking an effective and discreet solution to address her dental concerns and achieve a confident and attractive smile.

Personalized treatment plan

After discussing Dinisa’s concerns and goals, we concluded that Invisalign would be the best option.

Invisalign is a clear aligner system that straightens teeth without relying on traditional metal braces.

This option was selected because it allowed Dinisa to achieve her desired result without compromising her professional image.

Invisalign provides a discreet way to improve the alignment of teeth without drawing unwanted attention.


After deciding to use Invisalign as the patient’s orthodontic treatment, we took digital impressions of her teeth to create a 3D model of her mouth.

Using this model, we could simulate the expected treatment outcome, giving the patient a visual representation of the final result.

We then discussed the treatment timeline and the expected outcomes with the patient, ensuring she felt comfortable with the proposed plan.

  • Digital impressions of the patient’s teeth
  • 3D model to simulate the expected treatment outcome
  • Discuss the treatment timeline and the expected outcomes

These steps are essential to ensure that the patient fully understands what to expect from the treatment process and is on board with the plan before moving forward.

Treatment and process

This process involved using clear, removable aligners that gradually shift the teeth into their desired positions.

Dinisa wore these aligners and changed them every two weeks to continue the gradual process of moving her teeth.

Over time, the gaps in Dinisa’s teeth were progressively closed, and her teeth were aligned to achieve a straight, even smile.

During the Invisalign treatment process, Dinisa visited our dental office periodically to ensure everything was progressing.

We also provided Dinisa with detailed instructions on caring for her aligners and maintaining good oral hygiene, including regular brushing and flossing.

This ongoing care and monitoring were crucial to ensure that the treatment progressed as planned and that Dinisa achieved the best possible results from her Invisalign treatment.

Overall, the Invisalign process involved careful planning, ongoing monitoring, and dedicated patient care in achieving an even smile that has lasting benefits for oral health and self-confidence.

Final outcome

After a few months of treatment, Dinisa achieved her desired results.

Her gaps were closed, and her teeth were aligned, resulting in a beautiful and confident smile.

Dinisa was delighted with the results and grateful for the personalized treatment tailored to her wishes.
