Why you should straighten your teeth
82% of American adults agree that the first thing they notice about others is not muscle size nor makeup – but their smile.
A straight smile conveys beauty, health, intelligence, confidence, and other attributes we all desire!
With Invisalign, you can straighten your teeth without metal, brackets, or wire!
It’s the clear, non-embarrassing orthodontic solution.
Who is a candidate for Invisalign?
Invisalign straightens all types of teeth, including:
- Overly crowded teeth
- Gapped teeth
- Crooked teeth
- Open bites
- Baby and permanent teeth
- Generally straighter teeth
To confirm if Invisalign is right for you, book a consultation with your nearest Invisalign provider.

How does Invisalign work?
Invisalign aligners are thin, transparent, and custom made to fit comfortably over your teeth.
The treatment begins with a 3D digital scan (no goopy impressions!).
This digital impression allows your Invisalign provider to:
- Confirm if you’re a candidate
- Estimate how long treatment will take
- Estimate how many aligners you’ll need
- Tell you how much Invisalign will cost
- Show you a preview of what your smile will look like after treatment
Next, your Invisalign aligners will be made.
You’ll change aligners every two weeks to keep moving your teeth and must wear them for at least 20 hours per day for optimal results.
Treatment usually takes one year with ideal patient cooperation. That’s roughly 18 to 36 aligners.
The average cost is around $5,000, which is comparable to traditional metal braces.
Invisalign vs. braces
Invisalign is removable. You can take it out to brush, floss, eat, and drink.
Braces are permanent until your orthodontist says so.
Aligners are easy to clean.
With braces, you have to brush and floss around wires and brackets.
Hardly anyone will notice you’re wearing aligners.
Braces are bulky and hard to disguise.
You can eat whatever you want with aligners.
There are dietary restrictions with braces, like no popcorn, gum, candies, or chips.
Play sports without worry with Invisalign.
With braces, you’ll need to protect your mouth to prevent mouth sores and bleeding.
