If you want a straighter smile that truly reflects who you are, but don’t want those annoying, clunky metal braces, Invisalign is perfect for you. Designed to be virtually invisible, Invisalign clear aligners are an excellent way to fix any alignment or bite issues you may have, without those ugly traditional braces.
These clear tooth aligners focus on your specific needs, correcting teeth area by area without using metal brackets glued to your teeth. Invisalign aligners are made of very flexible plastic, so your smile transforms brilliantly, and with less pain than traditional braces cause.
That’s what makes Invisalign the best alternative to braces on the market today and why we're a Gold+ Invisalign Provider.
What Is Invisalign?
Invisalign is a revolutionary treatment option that is finally giving patients an alternative to traditional braces. If you have been avoiding fixing your alignment issues because you dreaded getting ugly and painful braces, don't worry, there is another option.
Rather than using brackets, wires, and rubber bands, this solution utilizes straighteners made of clear, flexible plastic. They are just as effective but nearly invisible and a lot less painful to wear.
Plus, you don't have to make changes to your diet or lifestyle. It's finally easy to treat alignment and bite issues thanks to these innovations.
Who Is Invisalign For?
Invisalign clear aligners are an option for almost anyone looking to perfect their smile. Invisalign was created with comfort and convenience in mind. They fix most alignment and bite issues you may have and come in various sizes to fit patients of all ages, from young children to teens and adults. Appointment times are shorter, the time between appointments is longer and there are virtually no emergency visits!
- Early or Phase I Treatment: Invisalign now offers ‘Invisalign First’ to be used to address early treatment needs without the discomfort and inconvenience of bands, brackets, and wires.
- Teens: Invisalign offers revolutionary tooth aligners specifically for teens! Think your teeth are too complicated? Think again. With treatment times up to 2X faster, you live on your terms. With Invisalign, you can improve your smile without interrupting your life.
- Adults: Invisalign can fix simple to complex cases and was created with comfort in mind. We get it. Life is busy, so live life the way you want because Invisalign is also removable (braces are not). And, Invisalign is more affordable than you may think. Insurance, tax-free dollars, and monthly payments can make your dream smile an affordable reality.
If you want to know whether Invisalign is right for you (or your teen, pre-teen or young child), complete an Invisalign assessment! We’ll go over your treatment options, and decide what’s best for you and/or your child, together.
Why Choose Invisalign?
These virtually invisible aligners have so many advantages to them. Besides allowing your teeth to straighten without a smile full of clunky, painful metal, Invisalign clear aligners also treat almost any tooth alignment or bite issues you may have.
Visa CAD/CAM computer technologies, aligners are custom manufactured for your mouth and teeth; which means they fit perfectly. No more brackets irritating your gums and lips, or wires constantly poking you.
They are also removable, which means you can still eat, brush, and floss normally while you’re perfecting your smile.
How Much Does Invisalign Cost?
Though Invisalign treatments will vary in price for everyone, they are comparable to the cost you’ll pay for traditional braces. Typically, traditional braces cost between $3,000-$7,500, while Invisalign ranges from $4,000-$8,000. However, these payments can be broken down into much more affordable monthly plans too.
Most dental insurance providers also cover Invisalign treatment, which can reduce out-of-pocket costs by up to 60%. To determine a firm cost, we would first need to do an assessment, since your particular smile, and needs, are unique, and therefore, so is every treatment fee and budget.
If you’re ready to take the first steps in transforming your smile, start the process with our Invisalign Assessment and we'll gladly meet with you, assess your particular needs and happily give you a detailed cost breakdown for the best treatment to fit your specific needs.

How Invisalign Works
Invisalign uses flexible, clear plastic aligner trays that focus on your alignment and bite concerns and needs, to swiftly correct any issues you have. In addition, the innovative align trays are custom fabricated to your teeth to ensure a perfect fit every step of the way.
As you progress through each new aligner tray your teeth will continue to become straighter until your treatment is complete.
With Invisalign clear aligners it usually takes 8-12 months to fix most alignment issues, but every individual is different and complex issues may take a bit longer to fix.
Your specific individual needs will determine how long your particular treatment may take.
