Invisalign® is a modern alternative to metal braces and is a great option for those who don’t like the look or feel of traditional methods. Invisalign® works by using a series of custom-made aligner trays that you wear over your teeth. Created using a special plastic material known as SmartTrack®, these aligners are virtually invisible when worn. Depending on how your teeth shift and adapt to the aligners, you will visit the orthodontist periodically to change out your tray for a new one, slowly straightening your teeth over time.
