Get a Straighter Smile without Metal Braces in Miami Beach, FL


Do you wish your teeth were straighter? There are many ways to improve the smile’s symmetry and you don’t necessarily have to go to an orthodontist in Miami Beach to get a straighter smile. At Bal Harbour Smiles we have seen great results and gotten great feedback from patients who have leveraged either the Six Month Smiles or Invisalign options offered by us.

For adults and teens who wish to straighten crooked teeth, but are hesitant to wear visible metal braces, Invisalign® offers an effective solution. Offered by Bal Harbour Smiles in Miami Beach, FL, Invisalign allows you to pursue your cosmetic goals efficiently and discreetly. With clear, plastic aligner trays, treatment is virtually inconspicuous, and results can be attained up to 50 percent faster than with traditional braces. Dr. Yudah Ari Benmergui and his team offer Invisalign, Invisalign Teen, and the new Express method for minor misalignments. By providing personalized care, we can help you achieve the beautiful, symmetrical smile you have always imagined.

About Invisalign

Designed to fit snuggly over your upper and lower teeth, custom Invisalign aligners are virtually undetectable to the eye. Invisalign is clinically proven to provide optimal results for many types of malocclusion, including complex cases. We can use Invisalign clear aligners to fix:

  • Gaps in teeth
  • Overcrowding
  • Overbite
  • Underbite
  • Crossbite

We can also reposition rotated teeth and overlapping teeth. During your consultation, Dr. Benmergui can review your dental needs and aesthetic goals and design a customized treatment plan for you.

Invisalign clear aligners are virtually invisible, so you never have to feel self-conscious about your smile during treatment.

Advantages of Invisalign

In comparison to traditional brackets and wires, Invisalign offers:

  • Comfort and convenience: Smooth, plastic Invisalign aligners are more comfortable than metal braces. There are no wires to irritate soft tissue and no worries about breakage. In addition, you can expect to see the dentist less often. Invisalign appointments are generally every six weeks as opposed to monthly for traditional braces.
  • Dietary freedom: As Invisalign aligners are removable, you can enjoy all of your favorite foods without restriction. As such, you do not have to be concerned about food particles collecting in or damaging brackets.
  • Hygiene: With removable trays, you can keep teeth and gums sparkling clean with your regular oral hygiene routine. You will never have to brush or floss around metal components.

While traditional braces can cause tooth discoloration and staining, Invisalign only improves the appearance of your smile, rather than retracts from it.

The Process

During your initial appointment, Dr. Benmergui can assess your smile and provide an expected timeline for results. Our office uses a 3-D digital scanner to create the images needed to design your custom aligners. For patients, this is highly preferable to a traditional physical mold, which can cause discomfort.

Once your custom trays have been fabricated, you can return to our office and proceed with treatment under the dentist’s supervision. You should wear each set of aligners for 20 to 22 hours each day, for approximately one to two weeks. You can then transition to the next set of trays, which will gradually shift your teeth into proper position.

The Invisalign method allows you to pursue your cosmetic goals efficiently and discreetly.

Treatment Options

At Bal Harbour Smiles, we offer treatment options to suit a variety of patients’ needs. For younger patients, Invisalign Teen provides specially designed aligners with built-in wear-time tracking. This program also allows for ready replacements for lost aligners. Invisalign Teen is an optimal method for self-conscious teens or those involved in contact sports. The aligners can be removed when it is time to wear a protective mouthguard for practice and games, so you never have to worry about dental injuries caused by metal braces.

We also offer Invisalign Express for patients who qualify. This cost-effective, five-stage treatment can address minor cosmetic dental concerns in three months or less.

About Invisalign


Customized clear aligners by Invisalign fit over the teeth and are barely noticeable. They do what metal braces do — move your teeth toward a more optimal position, but they do this without metal and without constant adjustments from an orthodontist. How? Your Invisalign plan includes varying aligners that take into account the current positioning of each tooth as well as the optimum one and through changing out your aligners every two weeks you’ll gradually move those teeth to a more symmetrical position.

Invisalign are removable for eating and for oral hygiene, offering some signficiant advantages over metal orthodontic appliances. Book an Invisalign consultation with our Miami Beach dentists and find out if this is the path to the straighter smile you’ve always wanted.

About Six Month Smiles


Six Month Smiles consist of tooth-colored braces, consisting of brackets and wires that straighten your most visible teeth, in about six months. Six Month Smiles do not correct bite problems and focus on the teeth most visible in your smile. We have had great feedback from patients who have been astonished at the great results in a fraction of the time braces can take and with much less noticeable oral appliances due to the fact that Six Month Smiles is designed for maximum impact with minimal notice.
