We know that plenty of people dream about having straighter teeth but don’t want to go through the process of wearing traditional metal braces. Thanks to Invisalign, you can correct misalignment while still remaining confident in your smile all throughout treatment.
How Invisalign Works
Invisalign treatment involves wearing a series of aligners. Each of these is designed to move your teeth a specified amount, getting you closer and closer to your desired end results. The aligners resemble whitening trays or retainers, and they’re custom-made based on your treatment plan. You’ll wear the aligners for 20 to 22 hours a day, and then swap them out for the next set every two weeks. The great part of moving through your series of aligners is that you’ll be able to see clearly how much progress you’ve made and how your smile is improving.
What Invisalign Can Fix
- Crowding — Move overlapping teeth back to their proper positions.
- Spacing — Close up gaps to bring teeth back next to each other.
- Overbites — Shift teeth so upper teeth don’t excessively protrude over lower teeth.
- Underbites — Correct teeth so lower, front teeth don’t jut out and cover upper teeth.
- Crossbites — Line up the upper and lower teeth properly so they meet in the middle.

Invisalign aligners are made from clear, BPA-free plastic, and they’re designed to fit snugly around your teeth. Chances are that people won’t even be able to you’re wearing them when you have them in.
You can take the aligners in and out, which means you don’t have to change how or what you eat. It also means that you can continue to brush and floss them like normal, without having to worry about special maintenance to keep your teeth clean.
More Gentle Material
Since the aligners are made from smooth plastic, they’re more gentle on your teeth, gums, and cheeks compared to the metal brackets and wires of conventional braces.
