Invisalign
 

If you are a working professional who just want your teeth to be straightened without the hassle and the embarrassment of wearing metal braces, Invisalign is the solution for you.  
Many of Dr. Chen’s patients have worn braces as a teenager, but due to the growth of wisdom teeth,  neglect or the loss of their retainers, minor crowding of teeth results.  Often, an adult working professional prefers to be more discreet about getting braces, and Dr. Chen is always happy to offer the solution of Invisalign to help her patients achieve the smile they want.

 

What is Invisalign®?

The Invisalign® system is the virtually invisible way to straighten your teeth and achieve the dazzling smile you've always dreamed of. Using advanced 3-D computer-imaging technology; Invisalign depicts your complete treatment plan, from the initial position of your teeth to the final desired position. Then a series of removable clear aligners are custom-made for your teeth – and your teeth only – to move them little by little. Each aligner is worn for about two weeks before being replaced by the next in the series, until the final position of your teeth is achieved. Your Invisalign treatment time will be determined by Dr. Chen based on your specific needs.

What are the primary benefits of Invisalign?

Invisalign aligners are practically clear. No one may even notice that you’re wearing these virtually invisible “braces,” making Invisalign a seamless fit with your lifestyle and day-to-day interactions with others.

Invisalign is removable. Unlike braces, you have the flexibility to eat and drink what you want during treatment by simply removing the aligners. And you can also remove the aligners to brush and floss as you normally would for fresh breath and good oral hygiene.

Unlike braces, there are no metal brackets or wires with the Invisalign system that could cause irritation to your mouth. Plus since your office visits during treatment don’t involve metal or wire adjustments, you’ll likely spend less time in the doctor's chair.

And finally, Invisalign allows you to view your virtual results and treatment plan before you start so you can see how your straight teeth will look when your treatment is complete.
