You have read about Invisalign—would you like to try it? You are in good company. Most people want straight, beautiful smiles, but no one has looked forward to wearing traditional braces for years. It’s no surprise that clear dental aligners like Invisalign have become a popular choice. The Invisalign teeth straightening system uses removable, clear trays that are minimally invisible when worn. This means you can straighten your smile without anyone knowing!

Invisalign is a dentist-directed treatment. This means you must get the treatment from an orthodontist or Invisalign dentist. We evaluate your dental health during the initial appointment to establish your candidacy for Invisalign. Once we give you the go-ahead for this treatment, we digitally scan your mouth to create a 3-D rendering of your mouth. Through this simulation, we can preview your treatment to see how and when each tooth will move to perfection.
