Do you want straighter teeth but do not like the thought of brackets, wires and bands? We are proud to offer Invisalign, the convenient, discreet alternative to traditional metal braces. Invisalign is the clear choice to correct the alignment of your teeth. We all want straight teeth but not everyone knows about Invisalign which is essentially “teeth straightening without braces.”
Using a series of clear aligners, Invisalign straightens and moves your teeth and is virtually invisible! These aligners are comfortable and easy to use. They provide gentle pressure that will gradually straighten your smile.
Invisalign is extremely effective and can help you correct:
Using Invisalign can correct as many dental flaws as traditional metal braces, yet they are a much more convenient treatment option.
Invisalign aligners have many benefits, including:
- The ability to remove your straightening device whenever you wish
- Freedom to enjoy all of your favorite foods without fear of anything getting stuck or broken
- Less frequent office visits (usually only one visit every 4 to 6 weeks)
- Nearly invisible treatment as your beautiful, straight smile is created
- The ability to brush and floss normally to better prevent oral health issues
- Smooth, comfortable molded plastic that will not irritate your gums, cheeks and lips as traditional brackets would

How Does Invisalign Straighten Teeth?
Invisalign adjusts and straightens your teeth with a series of custom aligners designed specifically for your teeth and your teeth only. These aligners are clear, comfortable, invisible plastic trays that you wear over your teeth. They are designed with cutting edge modern technology and produced with BPA-free clear molded plastic.
Dr. Prince will plan out the improvement of your teeth with stages of progressive aligners that you change out every few weeks. Invisalign gently positions your teeth into place with precise adjustments throughout the treatment plan.
Better Than Clear Braces
Nearly invisible, Invisalign dental aligners are the clear choice over braces. Not only are they effective, but no one even notices that you are adjusting your teeth! Invisalign is better than clear braces because the aligners do not irritate your cheeks and you can remove them whenever you want, like when you eat food. Your day-to-day routine is largely unaffected.
The Invisalign Treatment Process
Dr. Prince is an experienced Invisalign Preferred Provider who has received specialized training. Meet with her for an initial consultation to evaluate your needs and determine how Invisalign can help you.
3-D Imaging Technology
To make the treatment effective, we take x-rays, photographs and dental impressions of your teeth to create a digital 3-D image. We then map out a precise plan to gradually move your teeth; we can show you in advance how each series of aligners will correct your teeth.
Wearing and Changing out your Custom Aligners
Each case differs according to the treatment needed. We normally start you with 2–3 sets of aligners with a new set starting every 2 weeks. Every 4–6 weeks you come in for a checkup to monitor your progress with the treatment and get new sets of aligners. Each stage in the series brings you closer to the smile you’ve always wanted!
Getting the Perfect Smile
If you can wear your aligner for at least 20 hours a day, an average adult can finish treatment in about 1 year. Treatment for teens generally move along the same timeline as braces, but because the aligners are clear you will be able to see the improvement sooner.
Not only is Invisalign comfortable and convenient, the treatment produces remarkable results and a great smile. With Invisalign, straight teeth can be achieved without the use of metal brackets and wiring; they are comfortable and convenient.
