Invisalign® Clear Aligners
"For as long as I can remember my teeth have been crooked. I remember waking up and saying today is the day!!! Invisalign clear aligners not only changed my smile but gave me the confidence in the way I look. I'm so thankful I took the step and invested in myself."
- Sara Potter
WHAT Are INVISALIGN clear aligners?
Invisalign is an attractive alternative to traditional metal braces. It is a series of clear, custom-fit removable mouth trays that apply a controlled amount of force to your teeth to slowly straighten them.
The system provides the same beautiful results as traditional braces, but is virtually invisible. Because Invisalign trays are removable, they can be taken out while eating, drinking, brushing and flossing.
"It was an easy process and the investment was well worth the confidence my new smile gave me!" — Jennifer Greer

HOW DOES INVISALIGN WORK?
Everything shifts as you age — your ears, nose, and even your teeth. When your teeth shift, it can cause crooked or crowded teeth. Invisalign is a great option for correcting unwanted teeth movement. This tried-and-true advanced straightening system applies a controlled amount of force to the teeth to gradually move them back into their proper position. Not only is it custom fit and cost-effective, it's also virtually invisible!
We begin Invisalign with a custom designed treatment plan displayed on a monitor as a digital video of your mouth showing how your bite and smile will look at the end of treatment. Once the plan is set in place, the process begins by taking molds of your teeth to design custom aligners. Each set of aligners is then worn for a period of one to two weeks to slowly shift the teeth. During treatment, you will visit the office every 8-10 weeks for monitoring, with an average treatment time of 6-15 months. Once treatment is complete, retainers are provided to maintain your new smile.
