Clear aligners may be the solution if you want a straight smile without a metal mouth. Invisalign® is a set of transparent (see-through) aligners that fit over your teeth. Unlike traditional metal braces, Invisalign® aligners are removable & replaced every two weeks for the entire course of your treatment. The restrictive brackets & wires of traditional metal braces can trap bits of food & make cleaning your teeth more difficult. If you don’t thoroughly clean your teeth while wearing metal braces, you may end up with stains when they’re removed.\n\nWith Invisalign®, there is no need for fixed wires & brackets, so you won’t have to worry about food stuck in your braces. Plus, you can smile confidently without hiding a mouthful of metal! Placing & removing Invisalign® aligners is seamless & convenient, & they can be easily removed before meals or social engagements. Even when you’re wearing them, they are discreet & blend in with your smile.Book an appointment

Invisalign® uses a series of clear aligners to straighten your teeth. Each clear aligner only shifts your teeth slightly, so you need to upgrade them every two weeks. You’ll wear around 20 to 30 sets of aligners before your treatment is finished. Some patients need to wear more sets & others need to wear fewer. It all depends on your specific case!\n\nIt is a powerful tool for treating minor to moderate orthodontic problems. If your problem is severe enough, we may not be able to treat your case with Invisalign® aligners. Traditional metal braces are a reliable alternative that can correct most bite issues. To find out which treatment is best for you, please call for a consultation today!
Invisalign offers transformative effects, discreetly straightening teeth, improving bite alignment, and enhancing smiles. With its comfortable and convenient approach, it can boost confidence and create a positive impact on overall dental well-being.Book an appointment
