At Gilreath Dental Associates, we offer Invisalign® orthodontic treatment for our patients. Dr. Gilreath IV is an Invisalign® Preferred Provider, which means that he has advanced skills and experience with the Invisalign process. He’s one of the top providers of Invisalign® in Cobb County.

What is Invisalign?
Invisalign® technology uses a series of clear trays to move your teeth. Each tray fits precisely over your teeth and gradually move your teeth. The trays are changed every two weeks. The Invisalign® process starts with a consultation. We will listen to your treatment desires and goals and evaluate your smile and bite. We can then design an Invisalign® treatment based on your wants and needs.
What are the benefits of using Invisalign®?
Invisalign® offers many benefits over traditional metal braces. First and most obviously is the fact that the clear aligners used to move the teeth are virtually invisible. This means that you can wear them throughout the day without anyone noticing. This is a real plus for patients who work with customers or other people throughout the day. Next, since the trays are removable by the patient, your mouth and teeth stay healthier. Studies show that patients who use Invisalign orthodontics actually have an improvement in plaque accumulation. You can remove the trays when you eat and when you brush and floss your teeth. This means your gums stay healthier and your breath stays fresher. It also means you won’t have white spotting on your teeth that occurs in about 80-90% of traditional orthodontic cases.
Am I a good candidate for using Invisalign®?
At Gilreath Dental Associates, we provide Invisalign® treatment to patients who need to:
- Correct crowded and crooked teeth.
- Close gaps and spaces between teeth.
- Correct bad bites.
- Correct smiles that show too much gum in the front.

- To enhance their smile.

Invisalign® Teen for Developing Mouths
We offer our teenage patients Invisalign® Teen, an excellent orthodontic service designed specifically for teenagers by Invisalign®. For many teenage patients, Invisalign® Teen is a great choice and offers significant advantages over traditional braces:
- Invisalign® treatment is typically pain free.
- There are no metal bands, brackets or wires making them virtually “invisible”.
- Because the aligners are removed for eating and brushing and flossing, the patient can avoid the tooth staining that often occurs during traditional braces, due to poor brushing habits.
Here’s a secret about Dr. Gilreath’s Invisalign…
Many people think that the INVISALIGN process and results are the same, no matter what dentist provides the service. This is really not the case at all. Invisalign is a clinical procedure and the results that patients get from the INVISALIGN procedure is based solely on the talents, knowledge and experience of the dentist providing the treatment. Dr. Gilreath is one of the most accomplished Invisalign providers in the area. He takes his Invisalign cases to the highest level of success possible. He has presented cases to other dentists and orthodontists who wish to improve their Invisalign skills. Dr. Gilreath is also one of the few dentists in the United States to have his own personal technician at Invisalign. This is reserved for those technicians who do a large volume of Invisalign and who provide the highest level of treatment. Take a look at this video produced by Dr. Gilreath.
We use the Itero Scanner for Invisalign in Marietta
Dr. Gilreath has invested in an Itero Scanner to make your Invisalign experience in Marietta a more comfortable and more accurate. This is the state-of-the-art way to do Invisalign. Our practice is one of less than 1% of all practices in North America that uses a digital oral scanner which takes a digital scan of your teeth instead of using the gooey molds. This benefits our patients in a number of ways:
- Comfort. The scanning process is simple. It’s just a matter of opening and having the camera scan your teeth. Sit back and relax. No gagging or bad tasting impressions.
- Speed. The scan takes just a few minutes and once completed, it is immediately sent to Invisalign. It arrives via internet to their office before you even leave ours! This removes about 2 weeks from the process.
- Accuracy. The Itero Scanner is the most accurate way to do Invisalign. In fact, it is so much more accurate, that using it actually means that your Invisalign treatment more accurate and result in a more beautiful smile.
