As part of our commitment to providing patients the best dental experience in Oklahoma, we recommend considering sedation dentistry to diminish pain and making your dental visit peaceful and productive.

Patients have come to equate Dr. Michael K. Kirk and the Grand Dental Studio with superior dental care in a luxurious, relaxing environment. In Oklahoma City no dental practice offers as much personalized care with the added comforts of our full relaxation menu or a stroll through our Zen garden. Whatever your dental health care goals, isn’t it time you started looking forward to visiting your dentist? At Grand Dental Studio, we think it is. Invisalign clear braces and all our cosmetic dentistry options, offered in our spa like environment will leave you with a picture perfect smile. If you’ve been considering braces but are worried about the esthetics and the hassle, call to schedule an Invisalign consultation today.
Why Dr. Kirk
As a member of the American and Oklahoma Academies of Cosmetic Dentistry, Dr. Kirk is dedicated to learning up-to-date cosmetic dentistry treatments that he can bring home to his OKC patients. Over the past 15 years, Dr. Kirk has been dedicated to continuing education in all facets of dental care and his cosmetic dentistry training and experience is top-tier. If his years of education and experience aren’t enough to convince you, Dr. Kirk also prides himself on building strong relationships with every patient and says the best part of dentistry is getting to know his patients and working with them to achieve their oral health care goals. In his state-of-the-art, relaxing practice, Dr. Kirk offers the best cosmetic dentistry in OKC.
While many people choose to live with crooked teeth thinking the only adverse effect is esthetic, it’s important to note that there are additional health concerns to consider as well. A crooked or misaligned bite places uneven pressure on your teeth and jaw making you more susceptible to damaging the teeth that take extra wear and tear, and an increased potential to develop TMJ disorder. No matter what your age or lifestyle, it is important to have an aligned bite that will help you maintain dental health for life.
Invisalign clear braces offer a teeth straightening option without the hassle of traditional braces. When you want to create a better smile, it seems irrational to make your smile worse before it gets better. Traditional braces are bulky, painful, and a metallic smile doesn’t help anyone to look or feel their best. Traditional braces also limit the types of food you can eat, and require extensive oral hygiene.
Invisalign is a great option if you want to share your best smile from the first day of treatment. The clear, custom alignment trays gently shift your teeth, and no one will even notice. The alignment trays are switched out for new ones every few weeks until your teeth are straight. No orthodontic visits for tightening wires. In addition to fewer dental visits most patients report experiencing less discomfort with Invisalign when compared to traditional braces. Because Invisalign is removable, you don’t have to give up any of your favorite foods while you correct your bite. Simply remove your correcting tray during meals, and replace after.

How Does Invisalign Work?
- Invisalign uses a series of removable, custom, clear plastic aligners to incrementally reposition your teeth.
- The Invisalign method requires a series of dental impressions to be taken to first determine the optimal position of your teeth. These impressions and photographs can be taken during your initial consultation.
- Dr. Kirk will create a 3D digital projection of how your teeth could be realigned in stages. This projection forms the basis for developing a series of custom fabricated clear aligners which can accomplish that movement.
- Invisalign aligners are manufactured at the Invisalign dental labs using stat-of-the-art computer-aided design/computer-aided manufacturing (CAD/CAM) technology.
- The finished aligners are then sent to Dr. Kirk, who will dispense them in groups of one or two at a time during regular progress monitoring appointments (about once every four to six weeks).
- Each aligner must be worn in its specific order for about two weeks, for at least 20 hours per day. Your teeth will be moved in increments of about .25 millimeters to .33 millimeters at a time.
- Your aligners will be easily removable for eating, drinking, brushing, flossing, or for special occasions.
- A typical Invisalign treatment requires 20 to 30 aligners for both the upper and lower teeth, with most treatments taking no longer that a year. However, treatment times do vary from patient to patient.
Remember, our $500 off Invisalign clear braces is a limited time offer, so schedule an Invisalign consultation with Dr. Kirk today. Grand Dental Studio is the leading orthodontics destination of Oklahoma City, now proudly restoring smiles daily throughout OKC, Midwest City, Deer Creek, Yukon, Edmond, Moore, Nichols Hills, and neighboring areas.

Feeling insecure about your smile can really take havoc over your life. You may not feel comfortable meeting new people, joining your friends in a laugh, or find it difficult to eat or speak. Though it may not seem like a big deal, having gapped or misaligned teeth can be detrimental for your oral health, and our very experienced doctors take it very seriously. By offering Invisalign to our patients, we believe it is a key component in making sure you have a smile you can be proud of!
One of the key benefits to Invisalign is the fact they offer better oral health than traditional braces. Instead of having a mouth full of uncomfortable, pesky metal, Invisalign’s clear trays allow you to easily remove and reapply the retainers for when you need to eat, drink, brush, or floss. And because the straightening aligners are nearly invisible on your teeth, you will not experience the embarrassment some may feel when they smile or talk.
Because Valentine’s Day is coming up, everyone at Grand Dental Studio has decided to offer a $500 off special for Invisalign. We know we would be nowhere without our amazing patients, and this is our way of showing (and spreading) the love.
Interested in learning more about our Invisalign special or some of our other cosmetic, restorative, or general dentistry services? Call us today at Grand Dental Studio to schedule your appointment. Our Oklahoma City dental office is conveniently located for patients who live or work in the greater OKC area.

If you are a person who suffers from gapped, misaligned teeth or have an off bite, you may think there is no help. You do not want to go through the embarrassment of traditional metal braces, and you are worried of the pain associated with straightening your teeth. You are in luck, because at Grand Dental Studio, our very experienced and talented dentists will be able to give you the smile you have always wanted with Invisalign Clear Braces!
Unlike traditional braces, Invisalign gives you the discretion you want by being barely, if at all, visible on your teeth. Being FDA approved, there is no doubt Invisalign is a great option for anyone who wants to have their teeth corrected. The entire process involves a series of aligners that are made just for you so it fits your mouth perfectly. Being able to gently straighten your teeth, each aligner you receive will be a new stage in your straightening process, so no aligner is alike.
You should wear each aligner for two weeks, 22 hours a day in order to the most advantageous results. The whole process should take between 12-18 months, and at the end, you’re left with nothing but a beautiful, even smile you can be proud of!
