Soon you won’t want to stop smiling – we now offer Invisalign!

Maybe you didn’t get braces as a kid. Or maybe your teeth have shifted as you’ve gotten older. Maybe you finally decided to get some crooked teeth straightened. We’re excited to say, regardless of your situation, we can help you get the smile you’ve always wanted!

Invisalign® is one of our new products that will help form the smile you always dreamed of.

Both adults and teens can use the Invisalign® treatment, which can fix most common teeth-straightening and bite issues. Invisalign® can be used to straighten teeth that have shifted since previously wearing braces, or they can be used from the beginning in place of braces.

After an initial consultation, we capture the form of your teeth and have the perfect custom aligner crafted to fit your teeth. Over a period of time – which varies with each patient – your teeth will gently realign to form the perfect smile. Teeth should be straight, with the top row fitting slightly over your bottom row of teeth.

The length of your treatment depends on several factors – including you. You can’t control how complex your case is, but you can control how often you wear your aligners. They should be worn about 22 hours a day, taking them out to eat, drink, floss and brush your teeth. But, unlike braces, you won’t have to change the way you brush and floss or what you eat.

The aligners are made from a clear substance, so while wearing them many people may not even notice. On average, treatment takes 12-18 months, though it varies with each patient and in many cases, people start noticing changes within just a few weeks.

Plus, most insurance plans cover Invisalign® the same as they would braces.

If you feel Invisalign® would be a good fit for you, as always, contact us to schedule a consultation. We’ll get you one the road to the perfect smile you always dreamed of!
