The alignment of teeth is important not only to your appearance (it's one of the first things people notice!) but also to your oral health and your overall sense of confidence. If you have a few teeth that just aren't where they are supposed to be, or your oral health is suffering due to overcrowding, we can help.

Braces used to mean something far different than they do today. As more people are learning about the innovative advances in orthodontic care, we have seen an increased interest in correcting cosmetic and bite issues. We are happy to help you feel better about your smile with Invisalign treatment.

Invisalign has become a very common way for men, women, and teens to achieve healthier, more attractive smiles. Not so long ago, to straighten teeth meant you had to wear metal brackets and wires 24/7 for a minimum of twelve months. Invisalign has no brackets or wires. This system, however, has been proven extremely effective for the needs of many people.

The Invisalign system is based on the orthodontic principle that continual force moves teeth. Force, however, is applied through clear plastic aligners rather than brackets and wires. Aligners are made from detailed imaging and state-of-the-art animation achieved with the latest software. Before your course of treatment begins, you will be able to see each step of the process that will lead you to your best smile. 
Transforming your smile is easier than you may imagine. The most complex aspect of cosmetic dentistry is not necessarily the treatment you select but determining what you wish to achieve through the artistic remodeling of teeth. During your consultation with Dr. Mathew, you may identify concerns you didn't realize you had! For instance, you may know that you want your smile to look better, but you may not know that, to look better, you want the size or shape of a few teeth changed. You may know that you want a brighter smile but may not know that there is such a thing as too white. If the brightness of your smile does not complement your natural facial complexion and coloring, the result could look unnatural.

There is immense benefit in collaborating with your experienced cosmetic dentist about the treatment or treatments that will achieve your most natural, most beautiful look.

Why patients choose Invisalign

If you have not yet met someone who has straightened their teeth with Invisalign, you may not be aware of the numerous benefits of this treatment: 
  • Due to the discreet nature of Invisalign aligners, it is virtually impossible to tell you are undergoing orthodontic treatment! This is especially ideal for adults who do not want their professional image affected by braces.
  • Removable aligners allow you to continue your normal eating habits and oral hygiene routine, no brackets or wires to brush around.
  • Because teeth can be brushed and flossed daily without interference, oral health is much easier to maintain throughout the course of treatment.
  • The gentle force of Invisalign is maintained by switching aligners every two weeks rather than by tightening wires. This means less discomfort and fewer visits to the dentist.
  • Many people complete their Invisalign treatment in 9 to 15 months!

Planning for Invisalign

For most people, there isn't much to think about to determine if Invisalign is an appealing option for straightening crooked teeth. The cost of treatment is comparable, in most cases, to conventional braces. Additionally, many insurance plans that provide coverage for orthodontic care include Invisalign in the scope of care. If you are unsure if your insurance would cover Invisalign, we are happy to assist you in obtaining answers. Additionally, our patients may discuss the option of financing their Invisalign treatment with low payments.

"I have always been very nervous about dental appointments, but Dr. Mathew and her team were so gentle and caring, that by the end of my appointment I was laughing and having fun. I told my friends, I never had so much fun at a Dental appointment before and they wanted to see who this Dentist is. So I brought my friend with me on my next visit and he got to see how Dr. Mathew and her team go the extra mile to make it a caring and fun filled atmosphere. "
