Alternative to Braces

Invisalign (www.invisalign.com) is a great way for adults to get their smile looking good without having to put braces on. It is “wireless”! The treatment time can be as long as 18 months or as little as 6 months. How it works is that a series of clear trays are made to move the teeth. These trays are switched out every 2 weeks. Then you return to us every 6-8 weeks and time spend between 15 to 30 minutes in the office. After your smile is where we want it, we make a retainer to hold the teeth in position. We’ve treated many people with Invisalign and with great results. Adult teeth can be stubborn at times and additional treatment with clear braces may be needed to finalize your smile, but for the most part Invisalign alone can turn crooked teeth to the smile you’ve always wanted. In addition to getting your teeth straight, you will automatically be enrolled into our lifetime tooth whitening program to keep your teeth nice and white at no extra charge.

Invisible Braces

I had a young lady come into the office today for a consultation regarding braces. She had went elsewhere for a consultation and was shopping around for treatment cost. She wanted her bottom teeth straight. Her teeth were shifting as a result of missing teeth. The quote she received for her treatment was $5500. She said the other dentist told her that in order to align the bottom teeth, the top teeth had to be done as well. I examined and interviewed her thoroughly. She was interested only in treating the bottom teeth. I gave her the option of treating what she wanted for $3700 and for $500 more she could have invisible braces. Her treatment time to align her teeth would only be 9 months. She is really excited about her treatment and is schedule to start soon.
