Invisalign Braces

Do you want to straighten your smile, but feel reluctant to wear traditional metal braces? We offer Invisalign®, an innovative treatment system that uses a series of clear, custom-fitted plastic aligners to gradually guide your teeth into proper alignment. Cosmetic dentist Dr. Goldberg has several years of experience coordinating Invisalign® treatment for his patients, earning him the prestigious Preferred Provider distinction.

Tired of that ugly smile?

Invisalign is the best alternative to braces.

AFRAID OF METAL BRACES?

Invisalign Replaces Traditional Braces

Invisalign® also offers a number of distinct advantages over fixed metal braces, including:

  • Discreet treatment. The clear aligners are nearly invisible, so no one will notice that you’re straightening your teeth.
  • Increased comfort. Patients with Invisalign® experience none of the discomfort associated with traditional orthodontics. The smooth plastic aligners will not irritate or sting your inner cheeks and gums.
  • No diet restrictions. The list of forbidden foods for patients wearing fixed metal braces includes sticky foods, crunchy foods, and many other everyday edibles. Since Invisalign® trays can be removed during mealtimes, you can enjoy all your favorite foods as usual.
  • Easy brushing and flossing. With Invisalign®, you can remove your aligners to brush and floss your teeth as you normally would. Patients wearing traditional braces have a much more difficult time working around metal wires and brackets.

With Invisalign®, you will feel in control of your teeth-straightening treatment and dental care—without the need for regular visits to an orthodontist.

THE MOST COMMON QUESTION

How Does Invisalign Work?

Invisalign® can treat many of the same conditions typically treated with traditional orthodontics, including crossbite, overbite, underbite, wide spacing, and crowding. The duration of treatment is usually about the same as traditional braces. Although metal braces are recommended mainly for teens and younger adults, Invisalign® is often preferred by our adult patients who are interested in straightening their teeth.

At your initial appointment, we will answer your questions about treatment, and gather data such as photographs, impressions, and bite registration. We send this data to Align Technologies, the makers of the Invisalign® system.

Utilizing advanced computer-assisted design technology, the technicians at Align can create your custom treatment plan. They will also create a 3D video model of how your smile will look at the end of treatment. When you come in for your secondary appointment, you and Dr. Goldberg will review the video together. At this point, if you both approve of the proposed treatment, the process can begin.

Because Dr. Goldberg and the team truly want you to have an exceptional experience with Invisalign®, we offer free teeth whitening to our Invisalign® patients at the end of treatment. Your brightened teeth will highlight your straighter, more beautiful smile.

STILL WONDERING?

Find Out if Invisalign is Right for You

Invisalign® can be an incredible investment in your smile. Straighter teeth don’t just look good; they also foster better oral health than crooked, overlapped, or crowded teeth, because they are easier to brush and floss. Improperly aligned teeth foster the development of gum disease, which can lead to increased risk for more serious, systemic complications like heart disease.

A properly balanced bite can also decrease your risk of developing temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorder, an all-too-common condition that causes millions of Americans facial pain, migraine headaches, and other agonizing symptoms.
