Do you have a straight, beautiful smile? If you suffer from an overbite, underbite, or tooth gaps you may have been self-conscious about your smile all your life.
If you want to avoid “metal mouth” or “brace face,” Invisalign may be the solution. Instead of rubber bands and wires, you’ll use clear alignment trays designed to slip over your teeth as you wear them through the day. The trays guide your teeth back into place. You might feel a little soreness, but you should never feel any pain.
A custom solution
We use digital technology to make an exact map of your mouth. Thanks to the magic of digital smile design, we can even draw inspiration from photos of how you want your smile to look, make adjustments for your face and bone structure, and show you what the end result will look like before we even start building your alignment trays.
That’s why you can’t buy generic trays. Every mouth is different. Your mouth is unique.
Once you get your trays you’ll wear each for a set period of time before moving on to the next one. You’ll need to wear them 23 hours a day to make sure they can guide the teeth into place. You only have to take them out to clean them, and to eat certain foods.
Because we customize each alignment tray to match your mouth, they each snap neatly into place. You’ll never have to fear they’ll fall out due to normal activities, including talking, eating, and sleeping.
More than a cosmetic solution
While some people dismiss crooked or crowded teeth as a mere cosmetic issue, nothing could be further from the truth. Teeth which aren’t straight are in danger. They’re much harder to clean and floss,which means they’re more susceptible to cavities.
By straightening your teeth you aren’t only investing in your career-confidence or your romantic life. You’re investing in the health of your mouth, and in the natural teeth you want to keep for many years to come.
Is Invisalign for everyone?
Most teens and adults can wear Invisalign with ease. But sometimes traditional braces are more appropriate.
You’ll need to come in for an initial evaluation, so we can discuss whether Invisalign is right for you.
How expensive is Invisalign?
Good news: you can enjoy the discreet, gentle,and powerful Invisalign solution for about the same amount you’d pay for traditional braces. These days, most insurance companies cover Invisalign, and treat the procedure as they would any other orthodontic solution.
We have a few other payment options for you to consider, if you want or need them.
