• Invisalign®

  • Invisalign's® invisible, removable, and comfortable aligners will give you the beautiful straight teeth you've always wanted. And best of all, no one can tell you're wearing them. Invisalign® is great for adults and teenagers.

    What is Invisalign®?

    • Invisalign® is the invisible way to straighten your teeth without braces.
    • Invisalign® uses a series of clear, removable aligners to straighten your teeth without metal wires or brackets.
    • Invisalign® has been proven effective in clinical research and in orthodontic practices nationwide.

    How Does Invisalign® Work?

    • You wear each set of aligners for about 2 weeks, removing them only to eat, drink, brush, and floss.
    • As you replace each aligner with the next in the series, your teeth will move little by little, week by week - until they have straightened to the their final position.
    • You'll visit us about once every 6 weeks to ensure that your treatment is progressing as planned.
    • Total treatment time averages 9 - 15 months and the average number of aligners during treatment is between 18 - 30, but both will vary from case to case.

    How Are Aligners Made? You'd Be Amazed...

    • The aligners are made through a combination of our expertise and 3-D computer imaging technology.
  • Discrete

    Now you can change your smile gradually without making a loud statement to the world. Invisalign is practically invisible so it won’t get in the way of your look and style.  


    Unlike metal braces that have wires and brackets that can poke and irritate your tongue and the inside of your mouth, Invisalign smoothly moves your teeth gradually towards the look you want.


    With Invisalign you are not forced to brush and floss around brackets and wires or only eat certain types of food. Having clear aligners doesn’t disrupt your normal life the way metal braces tend to affect daily habits.
