How Does Invisalign Work?
If you are a candidate for Invisalign, you may be curious about how it works. Traditional braces use brackets and wires that are regularly adjusted to apply pressure and align teeth. Invisalign is different, and patients often find it more comfortable and easier to use.
Invisalign uses aligners instead of brackets and wires. These aligners are similar to mouth guards. They are custom designed to fit the contours of your teeth. They are made from a strong thermoplastic that is smooth, comfortable, and nearly invisible. At the beginning of your treatment, we will take a series of images that are used to create a digital model of your teeth. Your digital smile is gradually adjusted until the desired results are achieved. This is used to create your treatment plan and new aligners.
The aligners will be changed every two weeks. You will wear your aligners at all times, both day and night, except when you eat, drink, brush, or floss. Over time, the aligners will gently, gradually guide your teeth into their proper positions. You will have minimal interference with your normal daily activities, and no one will ever know you are straightening your teeth unless you tell them.
These clear aligners can be used for many different orthodontic issues, and most people with misaligned teeth and good dental health are candidates. If you are ready to transform your smile and create your own Invisalign before and after pictures, we can help. Contact us today to learn more or to schedule your appointment.

Now I Can Smile Again!
The dentist just made my front teeth/smile look like I had veneers implanted! She took away all my dark spots and heading without crowns and painful implants. It looks amazing! Thank You 🙂
The dentist was very kind + caring. I only had a few days left on my dental insurance + she helped to prioritize my care, fit me in so that I could get issues taken care of in a pinch. A+ experience.
