Let’s start with two quick questions. Do you want to straighten your teeth without the use of traditional braces? And do you want the most qualified Invisalign orthodontist to care for your orthodontic needs? Congratulations, you are definitely in the right place. Dr. Atoosa Nikaeen has been offering patients in the Los Angeles, Beverly Hills, and Santa Monica areas Invisalign treatments for years. In fact, we have helped straighten out smiles since Align Technology first pioneered invisible orthodontics and introduced the technology in 1999! Dr. Nikaeen has sharpened her expertise in the Invisalign process through many years of experience. For several years, She has been a Premier Provider of Invisalign. Now, she became an Elite provider of this highly advanced invisible braces technology.



This revolutionary orthodontic treatment uses clear aligners that fit over your teeth. Each set of trays is customized to move your teeth gradually into position. Over time, your teeth will align as the treatment progresses. Most patients see full results in 12-24 months. But, you can also select to accelerate your treatment and complete the invisible braces treatment in half of the standard treatment months! Invisalign aligners offer more comfort and can be taken out whenever you need. A fact that many Santa Monica, Los Angeles, and Beverly Hills Invisalign patients love.


First, Dr. Nikeen will make a 3-D rendering of your smile to assist in manufacturing your custom aligners. Every one to two weeks, you will switch out your aligners for a new pair. Each time your aligners are switched, your smile gradually moves to align with your treatment plan. Beverly Hills, Santa Monica, and Los Angeles Invisalign patients appreciate that the aligners are nearly invisible. Additionally, they love the convenience of taking them out to brush their teeth and eat. They can also be taken out for other occasions, like taking selfies. Still, keep in mind the aligners should be worn 22 hours per day for maximum effect.

How Invisalign works

But how does Invisalign work to correct your dental problems? The transparent invisible aligners are made with the help of digital technology. This modern method allows them to fit snugly around your teeth with the greatest possible precision. By gently pressing your teeth, the trays pull each tooth into the desired position. With all your teeth aligned, the treatment creates a straight and charming smile. At the same time, it effectively eliminates overbite, gaps, or crowded teeth problems. However, even the best Invisalign in Santa Monica cannot correct every dental problem you might have. Still, working wonders in teeth and bite correction is Dr. Nikaeen’s specialty. So the odds are that this treatment can be for you.


If your teeth are slightly out of line and there is little crowding or spacing, you may be a good candidate for Invisalign. Beverly Hills, Santa Monica, and Los Angeles patients may benefit more from braces if they have:

  • Severe crowding or spacing issues
  • A serious overbite, underbite, or cross-bite

Dr. Nikaeen will work closely with you to find your ideal treatment plan.


Is Invisalign worth it? Absolutely! Our patients report they appreciate the chance to get their teeth aligned without worrying about how they would look while undergoing the treatment. Also, they feel no discomfort when eating. After all, there are no metal parts and wires in their mouths for food debris to clog up. All they have to do is to remove the aligners before eating, then brush and floss their teeth after eating and put the trays back on. Due to its unparalleled ease of use, our patients agree that it is well worth the effort.

As you are well aware, a picture is worth a thousand words. Photos illustrating Invisalign before and after transformations can give you the best idea. These photos show the problems that can be solved and the impressive results available through wearing these high-end aligners. You may find visual evidence on our website of patients who have already received their improved smiles and quality of life.


You may start enjoying and witnessing results as early as 2-3 months from when you first begin wearing the Invisalign aligners. However, the full treatment varies from 6 to 24 months, depending on the complexity of your dental concerns. On average, it takes about a year for adults to get the desired results. Also, keep in mind that upon completing your course, we recommend wearing an invisible aligners. Doing this can prevent your teeth from moving back into the wrong position. But you shouldn’t be worried, since Invisalign retainers are invisible and easy to use.


Dr. Nikaeen has maintained continuing education courses with Align technology and treated hundreds of patients with Invisalign. That is hundreds of smiles brightened through this treatment alone! Other offices that hold this category of provider typically have multiple locations. Dr. Nikaeen has managed to accomplish this feat through her sole practice in West Los Angeles. Still, she regularly serves patients in Santa Monica, Beverly Hills, and beyond.


Dr. Nikaeen can accomplish results other doctors can’t due to the state-of-the-art technology she employs with her orthodontic techniques. She has treated surgical cases and the most complex bites using the best Invisalign Santa Monica has ever seen. Furthermore, she has corrected cases started by other doctors. Read all her five-star reviews on Yelp and Demandforce to see what her patients are saying.


While many family dentists offer Invisalign, they are not trained specialists. Any dentist can take a training course to receive authorization to offer Invisalign and create treatment plans. However, only specialists like Dr. Nikaeen spent an additional two years, in her case at Columbia University, to become a specialist in the art of teeth movement. Come in for a consultation, and Dr. Nikaeen will use her knowledge of physiology and the mechanics of teeth movement to compose the ideal treatment plan for you.

Invisalign technology is reserved for those with the skills and expertise necessary to create a precise teeth-straightening regimen. Dr. Nikaeen and her compassionate team are highly skilled at using this technology, and we are a proud provider of options, including:

  • Invisalign
  • Invisalign Teen
  • Invisalign Express
  • Invisalign 5.

Invisalign Express for Minor Dental Problems

Invisalign Express is designed for people with less significant dental issues – patients with minor crowding or spacing or mild bite problems. Many patients come to Dr. Nikaeen’s office with the belief that their teeth can only be fixed through a full, lengthy, complex teeth straightening process. During your consultation at our LA office, Dr. Nikaeen will examine your teeth and see if Invisalign Express would match your needs. Invisalign Express works the same way as the standard Invisalign system, using clear, comfortable trays that will have to be changed every two weeks. However, the Express method only requires five to ten uniquely designed trays.

Invisalign Express 10

Invisalign express 10 is a treatment specifically designed to make the high-end teeth alignment more affordable and hassle-free for patients with minor dental problems. It provides for the treatment with a fixed set of 10 aligners that are changed every 2 weeks. Thus, Invisalign express 10 results can be achieved in 20 weeks, and this is a perfect option for patients with a smaller degree of crowded and gap teeth. While the plan is more budget-friendly and short-term, it’s before and after results, as well as other benefits, are the same as those of the full course of Invisalign treatment.

Invisalign Express 5

Invisalign express 5 is a short-term plan focused on minor dental issues, which can be corrected with the minimum treatment. The plan covers 5 changes of clear aligners made every 2 weeks, while the full course takes about 10 weeks. Great Invisalign express 5 results are usually observed in patients requiring a small amount of movement, for example after previous treatment with braces. The convincing results are proven by before and after photos, while the cost is more attractive and affordable. As for the rest, the plan is in no way inferior to a regular full-featured treatment, providing the same comfort and effectiveness.

Cost of Invisalign Express

Invisalign express prices are far more reasonable compared to traditional plans since the short-term treatment requires a smaller number of aligners. Also, the treatment plans usually consume less dentist’s time and effort, which decreases fees. Depending on the circumstances, Invisalign express cost might be about 30% lower than the standard treatment. However, the express plans are applicable only in certain situations, and you should heed your dentist’s advice as to whether the plans meet your needs. Otherwise, you will save some money, but fail to achieve the desired result.
