A smile is not only the first thing someone may notice, but it can also make or break a first impression. Whether your smile is misaligned, crowded, or otherwise, invisible aligners may be the ideal solution to improve your appearance without the hassle of traditional metal braces.
For a long time, braces were the only option to correct misaligned teeth. These are often painful, required multiple visits, prohibited consumption of certain foods, and they stick out like a sore thumb. We have fielded questions from many concerned age groups on the appearance of braces and how it adversely affected their confidence.
The most attractive quality of clear aligners is that they are, well, clear! You can be straightening your smile and no one will ever know because of these nearly-invisible devices.
If you were to have braces, we would have supplied you with a list of food to avoid. However, clear aligners are removable, so you can take them off before meals without disrupting your diet. You will need to wear them for at least 20-22 hours per day for best results.

In some cases, we may even be able to ship them to you so you do not need to come to the office at all.
