Invisalign

Straighten teeth with near-invisible aligners

Invisalign® uses a series of custom-made, clear removable aligners to straighten your teeth without metal wires or brackets. So whether your teeth are crowded, too far apart or have shifted, you'll have a new reason to smile.

Atherton Dental - Invisalign

How does Invisalign work?

Upon an initial examination at our office, we will determine if Invisalign is right for you. We will then write a treatment plan and take an impression of your teeth, which are submitted to Invisalign. Using advanced 3-D modeling technology, Invisialign carefully translates our instructions into a series of precisely customized aligners. Invisalign also allows you to view your own virtual treatment plan at our office, so you can see how your straight teeth will look when your treatment is complete.

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 you've achieved the intended result of straighter teeth. You'll visit our office about once every 6 weeks to ensure that your treatment is progressing as planned. Total treatment time averages 9-15 months, depending on the severity of your case.

No braces, nothing to hold you back

Because there are no metal wires and brackets, Invisalign is comfortable. And because it is removable, eating, brushing and flossing are no problem. You can still enjoy your favorite foods and smile without holding back. With Invisalign, there's nothing to hide.
