Get the smile you’re looking for without the metal!
It's simple to get started!
How does it work?
Invisalign uses a custom designed set of aligner trays created just for you. We are able to design the custom fit using our iTero digital 3D scanner. During your first visit and free consultation we can scan your mouth and provide an instant visual high-resolution, interactive 3D simulated timeline of the progress you can expect from your custom aligners. Should you decide to move forward with Invisalign, we will take the 3D scan and create a custom plan and series of aligners that will be worn in a specific order over the course of many weeks.
The aligner trays are made of clear, nearly-invisible plastic that can be worn without anyone noticing. They are made to be worn full time and only taken out to eat and brush. After a period, usually one to two weeks, your teeth will shift to the position intended by the tray and you’ll move to the next tray for the next period of time. There is no metal, no wires, and no adjustments necessary.
We’ll help you to get the smile you deserve without interruptions to your life!
Common conditions we can treat

How does Invisalign compare to braces?
Invisalign works similarly to conventional braces but gives you way more freedom. You get the same smile you desire without having to wear the invasive gear. You don’t have to worry about what people think, what you eat, how they look, and best of all they can be taken out at any time. Visits to our office will only be once every 6-8 weeks, so they won’t interfere with your day-to-day routine or schedule.
There are many things you can’t do with braces.
- You can’t chew gum.
- You can’t eat hard and sticky foods or other foods that might get stuck in them like popcorn.
- You can’t easily floss or brush your teeth.
- You can’t remove them.
There are just a few simple rules to follow with your Invisalign treatment.
- Take your aligners out to eat and drink, and brush before putting back in
- Wear your aligners 20 to 22 hours a day for best results
- Clean your aligners daily
That’s about it!
