Invisalign Invisible Braces
See How Invisalign Works

If you're ready for a smile that transforms your appearance, Invisalign invisible braces may be your answer. Although there are many choices out there, no other works as effortlessly as the Invisalign system.

Invisalign straightens your teeth using a series of clear, removable teeth aligners that are custom made for you. These teeth aligners are virtually undetectable, so people won't know that you’re actually straightening your teeth. Made of a comfortable and invisible plastic, these aligners slip over your teeth and gently and gradually shift your teeth into place. No metal and no wire!

Your treatment begins with Dr. Heidari taking x-rays, pictures and impressions of your teeth, which Invisalign will use to create a digital 3-D image of them. It is from these images that Dr. Heidari will lay out a precise treatment plan outlining the exact movements of your teeth.

Once your treatment plan is established, a series of custom-made aligners are then created specifically for you. They are made of a smooth, comfortable BPH-free plastic that won't irritate your gums and cheeks like traditional wire braces do.

You wear each set of aligners for about 2 weeks, removing them only to eat, drink, brush, and floss. As you replace each aligner with the next in the series, your teeth will move - little by little, week by week - until they have straightened to the final position. You'll visit your dentist about once every 6 weeks to ensure that your treatment is progressing as planned.

Total treatment time averages 9-15 months and the average number of aligners worn during treatment is between 18 and 30, but both will vary from case to case.
