The Clear Path to Straighter Teeth & a More Confident Smile
Dr. Clara Song is a Certified Invisalign Provider
No other teeth straightening option offers the level of comfort, convenience, and confidence that you’ll find with Invisalign clear aligners: the fast and invisible way to straighten your teeth.
Invisalign is a great alternative to traditional braces. Not only is it a quick and effective way to straighten teeth but it utilizes a series of aligners or removable braces that are made of smooth plastic instead of noticeable wires and brackets.
Advantages of Invisalign Braces:
- Removable aligners - take them out whenever you want
- No food restrictions during treatment
- Brush and floss teeth like normal
- Virtual invisibility (no one will know you're wearing them)
- Non-damaging to teeth and enamel
- Pricing similar to traditional braces
- Customized to fit and move your teeth with no discomfort
- Most modern and effective way to achieve a healthy beautiful smile for teens and adults
Invisalign can help to:
- Straighten crooked teeth
- Realign the jaw
- Correct the bite
- Correct crowded teeth
Invisalign aligners are removable, nearly invisible, and custom-fit to your mouth, which is why this innovative approach to teeth straightening offers so many unique benefits. Simply put: Invisalign is a wire-free, more comfortable, and less hassle-prone teeth straightening experience for a large number of patients.
How Much Does Invisalign Cost? Are They Covered by Insurance?
The cost of Invisalign treatment can vary depending on your specific needs. It is comparable to the cost of traditional braces and may be covered by your dental insurance. If you do not have insurance or Invisalign is not covered by your insurance, we offer flexible and affordable payment plans to make Invisalign an affordable option for you.
You can also set up to $2,500 of your pretax dollars aside through your FSA and use those funds to help cover the cost of Invisalign treatment. Then apply for FSA reimbursement.
Are Invisalign Braces Comfortable?
Invisalign clear braces are a flexible way to straighten your teeth while you live your life. Not only are the aligner trays smooth and comfortable to wear, they are also completely removable. With Invisalign, you can continue doing all the things you normally would such as brushing and flossing and eating whatever you like.
What is the Treatment Process?
The first step is scheduling a consultation to see if you are a good candidate for Invisalign clear braces.
Once you have been identified as a good candidate for Invisalign, Dr. Song will take x-rays and impressions of your teeth which will be used to create a digital 3-D image of them. With these images, Dr. Song maps out a customized treatment plan including the exact movements of your teeth and the approximate length of treatment.
Next a series of custom-made, clear aligners are made specifically for you. These aligners are made out of a smooth, comfortable, BPA-free plastic that won't irritate your checks or gums like traditional braces. Approximately every two weeks you will begin wearing a new set of aligners as your teeth gently and gradually begin to shift into place. To monitor your progress, you will also have regular check-ups with Dr. Song about every 6 weeks.
For best results and quicker treatment, it is recommended that you wear your aligners 20-22 hours per day throughout the entire treatment.
How Long Does Treatment Take?
While every case is unique to each patient, treatment typically takes approximately a year for adults. For teens, the length of treatments is comparable to that of braces.
