How does Invisalign work?

Invisalign will straighten your smile with clear aligners that gently and gradually shift your teeth into place.

Your aligners are custom-made to perfectly fit your smile! We’ll create a unique treatment plan that’ll map out the exact movements of your teeth.

Invisalign provides more predictable results, thanks to years of research and the millions of smiles that have been transformed.

Who is Invisalign treatment for?

Invisalign treatment is a great solution for both adults and teens.

With Invisalign, there’s no need to feel self-conscious when smiling because:

Invisalign is virtually invisible.

It’ll be difficult for anyone to tell that you’re wearing aligners.

The clear design allows you to get treatment on the down-low while living your life.

You can take photos and attend special events confidently. Show that beautiful smile off!

And great news, parents:

Invisalign has created clear aligners that are specifically for teenagers. Their trays have colored dots that will fade in time as they’re worn, which will help you monitor their progress throughout their smile journey.

What is Invisalign made of?

The aligners are made of soft SmartTrack Material… This text opens a new tab …, which provides a comfortable fit.

They’ll be easier to wear regularly, meaning faster treatment time.

Invisalign produces a higher success rate than other clear aligner brands.

Each tray is removable, giving you the freedom to eat and drink whatever you want. Just be sure to clean your teeth before putting your Invisalign back in.

What can Invisalign treat?

It can fix nearly all common teeth straightening and bite issues, including:

  • Overbite or underbite
  • Crossbite
  • Gap teeth
  • Open bite
  • Crowded Teeth

Many people use Invisalign for cosmetic reasons, as well.

How long will Invisalign treatment take?

Treatment time depends on your unique plan, but it typically takes between 12 and 18 months. Simpler cases may take as little as 6 months to complete.

Invisalign treatment tends to be faster than braces because the trays provide force to the teeth as a whole rather than moving each tooth individually.

Will my dental insurance cover Invisalign?

Most insurance plans will cover a portion of the cost. You may be able to use your insurance coverage, arrange a monthly payment plan, or pay with tax-free dollars from your FSA or HSA.
