What is Invisalign?

Invisalign treatment uses a set of thin and transparent aligners to gently adjust mildly crowded and crooked teeth in place. Made out of strong, medical-grade plastic, Invisalign clear aligners are an aesthetically pleasing and comfortable alternative to braces for straightening your teeth and maintaining a spotless, professional appearance.

How Does Invisalign Work?

Get Invisalign in four easy steps.

  1. Consultation – The dentist will examine your teeth and work with you to create a treatment plan that meets your unique needs and alignment goals.
  2. Customized Treatment Plan – Using an iTero digital 3D scanner, your dentist will take impressions of your teeth and show you before and after images of your teeth so you can see the dramatic orthodontic correction that Invisalign can produce just for you.
  3. Adjustments – Your custom-made aligners will then be made in a lab. Once they come in, your dentist will adjust your aligners until you get the perfect fit.
  4. Show Off Your Smile – Wear your Invisalign clear aligners daily (take them out to eat, drink, and brush your teeth) and change out your trays every two weeks for the best results! Invisalign treatment makes it easy to get the straight, beautiful smile you want and feel confident while doing it!

How Long Does Invisalign Take?

If worn day and night, and only taken out while drinking, eating, and brushing your teeth, Invisalign clear aligners can straighten most people’s teeth in just 6-18 months.
