In our office, we use Invisalign, it’s invisible braces. You take aligners, which are clear plastic, they slide over your teeth, and they incrementally change your teeth. Instead of going to the orthodontist and having the wires changed, you change the aligners every couple of weeks. Depending on the amount of movement that's required would depend on what the length of the treatment time is. For some minor corrections, it could be three months. Other cases may take a year or more. It all depends on what the patient’s goal is.
The great thing about Invisalign is you can remove it and brush and floss your teeth normally, so your mouth never feels like, "Oh, I got all this stuff clung on my braces." If the tooth is not attractive to the patient anyway, putting it in a straight position may not be enough to make it look good. In which case, we might be more inclined to use a Veneer. We're going to change the appearance of the tooth anyway. With Invisalign and veneers, we can come up with a combination that's going to work to get your smile just how you want it to be.

Benefits of Invisalign Clear Orthodontics
Speed – Metal braces can take anywhere from two to three years to straighten your teeth. Invisalign can do the same job in half that time.
Comfort – Metal braces are hard and sharp. Invisalign uses clear, smooth plastic to construct your custom orthodontic aligners, leaving your mouth feeling and looking great.
Convenience – You can’t take metal braces off to brush your teeth or eat. This can upset your whole routine and limit your diet. With Invisalign, you take out your aligners for meals and hygiene, so you don’t waste time and can eat what you want.
