Invisalign straightens your teeth with a series of clear, virtually invisible, custom-molded aligners.
Invisalign uses breakthrough technology that lets you have the smile you've always wanted without the hassle of braces.
The clear alternative to metal braces
By using a series of clear, removable aligners, Invisalign straightens your teeth with fast results. The course of treatment involves changing aligners approximately every two weeks, moving your teeth into straighter positions step-by-step, until you have a more beautiful smile. And unlike braces, these clear aligners can be removed while you eat and brush your teeth as usual.
Less treatment time
An average Invisalign course of treatment takes about a year. You'll see us every 6 to 8 weeks for adjustments and to check progress. At regular intervals, you'll receive a new set of custom-molded clear aligners to continue the straightening process. The total number of clear aligners is specific to you, determined by us for your course of treatment.
Clear and comfortable
Since Invisalign is practically invisible, there's no unwarranted attention to your mouth. In fact, very few people will notice at all - unless you tell them. They're comfortable to wear and easy to remove when you eat, brush, and floss.
