Dr. Don Mungcal and his team are committed to the health, function, and beauty of patients’ smiles. Whether you are seeking general dentistry or cosmetic work, we can help! One of our highly desired treatments is Invisalign, an alternative to traditional braces. There are many benefits to Invisalign over conventional orthodontics for our patients to consider.

Invisalign explained

Many patients are interested in finding out how Invisalign works. Instead of using brackets and wires as traditional braces require, Invisalign uses aligner trays. Trays are made of clear, medical-grade plastic and are worn day and night to reposition the teeth. An entire series of trays is made from start to finish, and each tray is worn for two weeks at a time before progressing to the next aligner. The trays are removed for eating, drinking, brushing, and flossing. When patients comply with their treatment, they can completely change their smile, usually within a year or less, depending on the severity of their misalignment. Mild to moderate misalignment can be addressed with this method, as well as poor bite alignment.

What are the benefits of Invisalign?

Many patients in the area of Los Angeles, CA consider Invisalign because of its many benefits.

  • Patients who consider Invisalign are often interested in a discreet treatment. The trays are clear and hard to distinguish from the natural teeth, making them highly desirable for both teenagers and adults.
  • Invisalign uses amazing technology to create the trays from digitized impressions. The entire series is created from the start, so patients do not have to return to the dental office every two weeks to obtain their new trays.
  • Patients find out how easy it is to use Invisalign, as well as how simple it can be to take care of them. By being able to remove the trays for brushing and flossing, many patients experience better oral health throughout the process, as they do not have to work around brackets and wires that are not removable.
  • Invisalign provides fast results. Patients with mild to moderate misalignment can achieve their new look within six to twelve months in most situations with proper compliance.
  • Patients find Invisalign trays to be incredibly comfortable. They are made of smooth plastic and fit precisely over the teeth without adding unwanted bulk. The smooth plastic is easier on the surrounding soft tissues, while many patients with metal brackets and wires experience poking and soreness around their brackets.
  • Invisalign is an affordable option for many of our patients, often comparable in cost to traditional braces.
  • Dr. Don Mungcal and the team at Downtown Dental are here to assist Los Angeles, CA
  • Patients love the fact that they can continue to visit their primary dentist for their orthodontic treatment instead of starting over with another professional they do not already know and trust. Patients only come in about every six weeks throughout treatment to monitor their progress, but do not have to undergo adjustments of brackets and wires as patients do with an orthodontist.
  • Our practice understands that some dental work can be costly for a family’s budget. We offer convenient financing plans for patients who need to space out payments to make their treatments more affordable. We work with individuals and their dental insurance companies to get them the best rate and to help them better understand the coverage they have with their insurance plan. We want patients to have the opportunity to improve their smiles without being hindered by cost.

"I am a legit Patient at this practice. The Doctor is amazing - educated, skilled and patient. Allison, my Dental Hygienist, is really friendly, knowledgeable and proactive about her patients' oral health. In my experience, the office staff at Downtown Dental is always professional, friendly, and thoughtful about my time. Plus, they offer reasonable financing! If you're honest about your budget (for people like me who don't have dental insurance), they can often work with you to stay within budget. I also learned that they use the best equipment in their field and staff gets training often on new dental techniques. If you are someone who works, resides or likes to visit Downtown - this is an especially excellent place to see the dentist periodically.

Downtown Dental is a fantastic Dental practice in the heart of the city. They are located near LA's Cultural hub of museums, concert halls and the like (The Broad, MOCA + more ). But don't let all that (magic) discourage you from making your appointment, because traffic is usually very smooth on Grand and getting in and out of their secure and validated parking lot (in their building) is a breeze. They also have 2 e-car charging stations if that's how you roll. If you work in DTLA, like many, you can even get a lunchtime cleaning!

Sidebar: The office is located inside a gorgeous apartment building, full of high end furnishings, accentuated with stunning street art. You may have even passed by & seen the Subway flags at street level- the dental office is right upstairs. It's worth a try, especially if you want great oral health, love art, culture and the city!"
"Still the best I've ever been to! The entire staff is more than knowledgeable & helpful!

Don't waste your time going to other places, this dentist & his team are your best bet!

They are courteous, flexible, and above all: PROFESSIONAL."
"What an amazing staff and dental team!!

I had four front crowns and 2 root canals done all in about 3 hours! It was pain free! Dr Mungcal was fast and I didn't feel a thing! People compliment my teeth all the time! ...Little do they know they're fake! Very grateful!!! I am in Invisalign now and love how it stopped me from clenching and grinding my teeth! My teeth and gums are healthy because of all the amazing dental work they have done and continue to do!! Oh ...And they offered nitrous which made the whole experience awesome! Go here if you want dental work done right!!"
"Downtown dental made my cavity experience as painless as possible, and the technology they use is so up to date and accurate.

The staff are also very friendly and know the best habits for having a healthy mouth.
So glad I started going here!"
"Absolutely the best dental office! In all reality I used to hate going to the dentist I would cancel my appointments at my old Drs office all the time !! But the Hygienists and the staff in general are so welcoming and make you wanna keep coming back. They are always ready to deliver and Allison did an amazing job on my teeth cleaning thank you for that"
"This review is long overdue. I've been a patient at downtown dental since 2005 and have had nothing but positive experiences. I've had quite a bit of dental work and when I had a cracked crown recently, they scheduled me the next day and replaced it at no charge. They would have scheduled me that day but sadly, I'm no longer a patient as I've moved to NorCal. I felt like they really went out of the way to accommodate me and I appreciate that! Thanks guys!!"
"Great practice, the doctors and assistants are very professional, helpful and pleasant. They make dental appointments almost enjoyable...not something I thought possible!

Katie the hygienist is not only gentle, professional and very professional but also inspiring. She makes you want to have the best gums in Los Angeles.

Thank you guys!"
"The team at Downtown Dental are the best! They have done both an implant and Invisalign for me. They keep me informed about all the steps and always get me in and out quickly! I love that they can do everything right in their own offices too."
"My story is: I chipped a took eating cereal! Who does that!?! (The cereal was crunchy I'll admit). I went to Downtown Dental and Dr. Mungcal evaluated my situation and realized my bite needed to be adjusted. I grind my teeth at night also so the combination of it all was wearing my teeth down. He recommended invisalign to align my bite. I was hesitant because it's pricey was SO WORTH IT!!! 8 months later, my bite is fixed and aligned and my teeth are straighter which is a bonus! I am only 34 and I want to keep my teeth healthy and strong for a long time! Dr. Mungcal and the entire staff are amazing and took GREAT care of me. You can rest assured you will be taken care of by them!"
"Came to downtown dental with my husband for his first dental implant. He was very nervous on getting this procedure done.. From his experience he said the staff were super friendly made him feel very welcomed..the dentist made his procedure quick and painless my husband didn't even need his medication for the swelling or pain ... Highly recommend... We Will be coming here from now on for our dental needs."
