What is Invisalign®?

Invisalign is one of the most discreet methods for straightening your teeth into a beautiful, symmetrical smile. Invisalign uses a series of thin plastic aligners that are worn throughout the day and are changed out for a new set of aligners approximately every two weeks. Our Invisalign-certified dentists, Dr. Meltzer and Dr. Hsieh, will work closely with you to monitor the progress of your teeth and determine which aligners are needed.


What are the benefits of Invisalign?

The Invisalign plastic aligners are very thin and clear, making them virtually invisible on your teeth. Unlike traditional metal braces, you can correct your smile without anyone even noticing. The discreet appearance of Invisalign makes it a great option for adults who are embarrassed to wear braces, or for those wishing to maintain a professional appearance. Another benefit of Invisalign is that the aligners can be removed, which allows you to eat and brush your teeth as normal. The fact that Invisalign can be removed promotes better dental health compared to braces, which can impede a toothbrush, make flossing difficult, and get food particles stuck in them.
