Do you wish for straighter teeth but feel that, as an adult, you have missed the boat for getting braces? You are not alone. Many people want to straighten their smile, but feel that getting braces doesn’t fit in with their professional lifestyle. Fortunately, there are several options for discreetly and quickly aligning crooked or crowded teeth. Our doctors proudly offer both Invisalign® and ClearCorrect™ clear aligners.

Clear aligners have become incredibly popular in the last few years as demand for a more cosmetic straightening option has risen. They are especially popular among adults who, for a variety of reasons, may not feel traditional metal braces are appropriate. Depending on your case, clear aligners may even get the job done faster.

Invisalign and ClearCorrect both use a series of custom clear aligners to gradually modify your smile. After your first appointment, where treatment is planned using cutting-edge technology, every couple of weeks you will come in for a new aligner. They can be removed for eating and cleaning, and are virtually imperceptible while they are being worn. For adults, treatment typically lasts around a year.
