How does it work?

Invisalign straightens teeth with a series of custom-made clear aligners. Each plastic aligner is worn for a period of time (two weeks), allowing for a gradual, comfortable straightening of the teeth. Our dentists and orthodontists use Invisalign technology to address most common issues with the smile and bite, such as crowding, “gaps,” overbite, and misalignment.
