Invisalign: Straighter Teeth without Braces

Are crooked or uneven teeth stopping you from smiling? As an adult, wearing braces to straighten teeth can be embarrassing and awkward. That’s why we offer Invisalign as part of our cosmetic dentistry services. Invisalign is a popular, discreet alternative to braces that has been helping people achieve straighter teeth for over a decade. This approach to teeth straightening is virtually invisible with minimal interference to your current lifestyle.


Discreetly & Comfortably Straighten Your Teeth with Invisalign

Invisalign is one of our most popular and frequently requested cosmetic dentistry services. In addition to its cosmetic benefits, Invisalign is effective for over-crowding, cross bites, overbites, and gap teeth. Not only do these misalignments seem unattractive and hurt patient confidence, but they also can lead to oral health problems later in life. The good news is that it is never too late to straighten your teeth. Since the clear aligners are practically invisible, they discreetly straighten teeth without any awkward metal wires or brackets. This means only you will know that you are wearing Invisalign, so you can confidently attend business meetings, dinner dates and family functions without worrying about the embarrassment or discomfort of metal braces.

Treatment begins with a personal consultation. Our dentist will discuss your straightening goals and oral health concerns. Next, our dentist will take X-rays and impressions of your teeth, create a 3-D image of your bite and then map out a custom treatment plan. Based on your impressions and individual treatment plan, a series of custom liners will be made just for you. Aligners are smooth, comfortable, and BPA-free. Patients typically wear one clear aligner for 14-day period, and then switch to a new aligner. Each aligner progressively straightens the teeth, advancing you to the next stage of treatment. For best results, we recommend wearing aligners for 20 to 22 hours per day, including while sleeping at night. Aligners can be removed while eating or drinking and also when brushing and flossing teeth.

While every patient is unique, most treatments last for approximately one year. For teens, the length of treatment may be closer to two years, which is comparable to the length of time that braces would be worn. While most individuals are good candidates for treatment, metal braces may better serve individuals with complex bite misalignments or severely misaligned teeth. Our dentist will discuss your different treatment options and make specific recommendations during your initial consultation.

Invisalign is popular because it is easy, effective and discreet. The clear aligners are also more comfortable than metal braces – you won’t need to worry about metal braces poking or otherwise irritating the inside of your mouth. And since the aligners can easily be removed for eating and drinking, you can still enjoy all your favorite foods, including foods that are sticky and chewy.
