Clear aligners give you a straighter, healthier smile in as little as 3-6 months.

For mild cases, you won’t find a faster or more comfortable solution to getting your smile perfectly aligned. There are no uncomfortable, unsightly wires, and you can remove your aligners whenever you need to.

Move Over, Malocclusion

Even if you don’t have severely misaligned teeth, crowded or crooked teeth can still harm your oral health.

Uneven stress on your teeth

Misaligned teeth can affect your bite, causing some teeth to wear out more quickly than others.

Increased oral health risks

Crowded or crooked teeth are harder to clean, putting you at higher risk of tooth decay, gum disease, and more.

Clear Aligners Aren’t Just For Straightening

Use them to whiten your smile.

Paired with whitening gel, clear aligners can make your smile sparkle.

Use them for cosmetic changes.

Clear aligners are great for a conservative smile makeover - no veneers or bonding.

Use them to breathe better.

Breathe easy when you sleep and exercise, all thanks to your clean aligners.

Learn More About Clear Aligners

That’s a bit like asking what the difference is between apples and fruits. Just like how apples are a type of fruit, Invisalign is a type – or more specifically, a brand – of clear aligner. You may have heard of other brands like ClearCorrect and MTM as well. When you come in for a consultation, we’ll evaluate your smile and recommend the best choice based on your needs and budget.

Clear aligners are a good choice for teens, adults, and even seniors, but typically aren’t a good choice for younger children who don’t have all their adult teeth yet. For children, we recommended a solution like HealthyStart or Myobrace, which are designed for developing mouths.

The price of your aligners will depend on how severe your case is. For example, if your teeth only need minor corrections, you won’t need as many sets of aligners as someone who’s looking to correct a more severe case, so your cost will be lower.

While clear aligners are best suited to more mild cases, they’re still capable of handling moderate cases of misalignment. When you visit us for your free consultation, Dr. Lawson will assess your smile and let you know if clear aligners are a good choice for you.

We recommend that you wear your aligners for 20-22 hours each day, including while you sleep. You’ll only remove them while you’re eating or brushing your teeth.

Nope! Since the aligners are removable, you’ll be free to enjoy all the food and drinks that you love. Just remember to wear your aligners again after you’re done!

Unfortunately, you won’t be able to use clear aligners if you have dental implants or bridges since the aligner trays can’t reposition the attached implant(s).

We generally don’t recommend clear aligners for anyone with veneers or dental bonding, as the pressure from the aligners can loosen veneers or cause damage to bonding material.

Recapture the magic in your smile.

A full smile opens the door to a fuller life.
