Invisalign: The Clear Alternative to Adult Braces

Getting braces as an adult can be a bit awkward. You want a straight, beautiful smile, but you don’t want to show up to the next office meeting appearing as you stepped out of junior high yearbook, with a mouth full of metal. Thankfully, today, there’s a better option. Invisalign clear teeth aligners can give the same stunning results as braces, but without the metal mouth. In the next few paragraphs, we’re going to break down everything you need to know about Invisalign and how it is a worthy alternative to adult braces.

What Is Invisalign?

Invisalign is a series of clear, plastic aligners that can be worn over your teeth. Each set of Invisalign aligners is worn for about two weeks until it’s replaced with a new set, that’s closer to the smile you want. After just two to three months of using the aligners, many people start to see a difference in their teeth. The course of treatment will vary from person to person, but the average Invisalign treatment lasts 12 months. They’re custom-made for your mouth and can be removed during eating, brushing, flossing, sports, or whenever it’s necessary. Invisalign can treat generally non-straight teeth, overbite, underbite, crossbite, and more. Head over to and take the smile assessment to see if Invisalign is right for your mouth.

What Is The Cost Of Invisalign?

Payment plans are available, but the cost of Invisalign is similar to metal braces. It will vary from person to person, depending on the length of treatment and insurance coverage. Most insurances do cover a significant portion of the Invisalign cost, but there are a few that will only cover traditional braces. Feel free to contact us to discuss payment options.
