Many adults who want straighter teeth shy away from wearing uncomfortable, unattractive metal braces. How can you achieve a more attractive smile quickly and without enduring a mouth lined with metal? Invisalign™ clear braces!

What Are Invisalign™ Braces?

Invisalign™ is a modern approach to straightening teeth using custom-made aligners. These aligners are smooth, comfortable, and virtually invisible. They are made from plastic and worn right over your teeth.

When you wear the aligners, they gradually and gently shift teeth into the proper position. These movements are based on movements your dentist has planned for you. These aligners require no metal brackets or wires.

Each aligner is worn for approximately two weeks until you are ready to switch to your next one. Each case of aligners varies in time. It depends on how many aligners are needed in your treatment course.

Depending on your treatment plan, you will wear your aligners full-time for 12-24 months. No longer than you would wear traditional metal braces. Some patients actually achieve their ideal smile in less than a year!

You can remove your aligners to brush your teeth, eat, or for an important occasion. Dr. Aponte will check you regularly. Our goal is for you to achieve a great smile with little interference to your daily life.
