YOU'LL SEE THE DIFFERENCE -- NOT THE BRACES.
Sure, there are other options out there for straightening your teeth, but none offers the level of comfort, convenience and confidence that you'll find with Invisalign®. And no matter what stage you're at in life, you'll appreciate how this cutting-edge approach to treatment has minimal interference in how you live, but has a significant positive impact on how you look and feel about yourself.
HOW INVISALIGN WORKS
Invisalign takes a modern approach to straightening teeth, using a custom-made series of aligners created for you and only you. These aligner trays are made of smooth, comfortable and virtually invisible plastic that you simply wear over your teeth. Wearing the aligners will gradually and gently shift your teeth into place, based on the exact movements your dentist or orthodontist plans out for you.
Best of all, there are no metal brackets to attach and no wires to tighten.
You simply pop in a new set of aligners approximately every two weeks, until your treatment is complete and you achieve the confident smile that you've always wanted.
The best part about the whole process is that most people won't even know you're straightening your teeth.
INVISALIGN VS. BRACES (IT'S NO CONTEST!)
Invisalign's clear aligners are virtually invisible. Braces require brackets and wires.
Invisalign features smooth, comfortable plastic aligners. Braces have wires that can poke and irritate your mouth.
Invisalign's aligners are removalbe for easy cleaning. Braces, obviously, aren't, making brushing and flossing a significant chore.
Invisalign allows you to eat whatever you want. Braces restrict what foods you can eat.
With Invisalign, people will notice your new smile, not metal braces.
