Is It Right For Me?

Whether you’re getting ready for picture day or a first date, you’ll feel good knowing your treatment is discreet! This is why Invisalign has become increasingly popular amongst adults. From crowded teeth, to an underbite, Invisalign can help many different types of smiles! Helping more than 1.4 million teenagers, it’s no question why young people love Invisalign. Feeling confident is important, let your teen see the progress of their smile treatment and feel good about the changes while it’s happening!


How Does It Work?

Long gone are the days of uncomfortable teeth molds! When you are assessed for Invisalign, your teeth will be scanned using accurate 3D imaging technology. You need to wear your aligners for at least 20-22 hours each day. The only time you should take your trays out is for eating, brushing and flossing your teeth! Every few weeks you’ll be required to change your aligners in order to keep your smile progressing! Treatment normally lasts between 10-20 months, meaning you’ll be showing your new smile in no time!

Caring for Invisalign is almost as easy as the treatment. Gently brush the clear aligners with your toothbrush on all sides under lukewarm water and rinse them every night. To clean your case, use a mild soap and rinse thoroughly!
