Is there such a thing as a perfect smile? What would it even look like? The truth is that the perfect smile is the one you’re happy with, that brings you the confidence to laugh, smile wide, and enjoy life. Unfortunately for many people, tooth spacing and alignment issues make smiles more of a curse than a blessing.
Did you know that, according to a recent AAP survey, 80% of consumers report that they are not happy with their own smiles? To make matters worse, many orthodontic procedures like braces and retainers make patients even more self-conscious, to the point where they aren’t even taking steps to improve their oral health.
That’s why Invisalign is such a great procedure: virtually invisible to the naked eye, Invisalign helps patients improve their smiles every day while giving them the confidence to show them to the world.
How Does Invisalign Work?

Unlike traditional braces, Invisalign is easy to install, comfortable, and pleasing to the eye. Clear plastic trays are molded to fit your teeth perfectly based on digital imaging of your teeth and jaw. Based on this digital model, multiple molds are created for each stage of the treatment process to slowly and gently guide your teeth into the right positions.
During an initial consultation with your dentist or orthodontist, they will be able to determine whether you are a candidate for the treatment. Invisalign is particularly effect for patients with moderate tooth crowding in the front of the mouth. For adults, the typical treatment plan lasts about a year. Children can expect a treatment length comparable to braces.
Like braces, Invisalign can be a costly procedure, with Invisalign costing about 25% more on average. However, with a long-term treatment plan that is partially covered by insurance, it is easier to afford the smile of dreams than you might think.
