Do you have crooked teeth that make you feel embarrassed to show your smile in public? Do you constantly worry about how your misaligned teeth look to others?

Traditionally, fixing crooked teeth consisted of inserting metal in your mouth, resulting in a bulky appearance that caused people to feel even more self-conscious. Now, treating crooked teeth does not have to involve all that metal and bulk.

Invisalign has flourished in the cosmetic dental world as a wonderful way to straighten teeth.

Also known as invisible braces, Invisalign straightens crooked teeth in a discreet manner using clear and removable aligners.

Adults prefer Invisalign to traditional braces because they have the comfort of receiving their dental treatment without the embarrassing metal. With Invisalign, adults can enjoy their cosmetic dental treatment without all the fuss.

Everyday, more and more adults seek teeth straightening treatment. In fact, adults in the U.S. make up about 30 percent of orthodontic treatment.


About the Procedure


To get started with Invisalign, your cosmetic dentist will supply you with a bunch of clear aligners that you will be instructed to replace every two weeks. Every time you switch one set of aligners for the next in the bunch, your teeth will shift until they completely straighten.

On average, Invisalign takes about nine to fifteen months to complete. However, you may require more or less time depending on your case.

Your cosmetic dentist will also remind you to take out your aligners when eating, drinking, brushing and flossing.

Consult with your cosmetic dentist every six weeks in order to ensure that your Invisalign treatment is going well.

The Invisalign procedure is painless, efficient and fairly quick. With Invisalign, you can achieve a beautiful and healthy smile in just a few months—without anyone seeing a glimmer of metal!
