The latest version of Invisalign provides the same great results in approximately half the time. The upgraded aligners use a new material that can move teeth into position faster than ever before. Instead of wearing each aligner for two weeks, as in the past, many patients can wear their new and improved aligner trays for just one week before moving on to the next in the series. We will go over this exciting development with you during your initial consultation so that you are well informed about the new reduced treatment time.Contact us to learn more!
Invisalign is an innovative orthodontic technique that uses a series of clear aligner trays to gradually shift teeth into the proper position. The virtually invisible teeth aligners are removable and customized to suit the needs and goals of the patient. As a result, this treatment is one of the most popular orthodontic options available. At Coleman Advanced Dentistry, we are a #1 Elite Provider for Invisalign, and our experienced cosmetic dentists can determine if this method can help you achieve your desired outcome.
Designed for greater comfort and more discreet treatment than traditional braces, Invisalign and Invisalign Teen offer adults and teens a convenient way to straighten their teeth. The world’s leading clear aligner system uses a series of custom-designed, removable trays to gently move the teeth into the desired position for improved function and beauty.
The aligners apply light pressure to crooked teeth, shifting them into the ideal alignment without using metal wires or brackets. Like traditional braces, Invisalign can address a wide range of dental concerns, including overbites, underbites, crossbites, tooth misalignment, gaps between teeth, crowded teeth, and more.
This advanced orthodontic solution offers numerous advantages over metal braces. Your aligner trays have no metal parts that can irritate sensitive tissues, including the gums, lips, and tongue. Additionally, you may need fewer appointments than with traditional braces. Many teenagers and adults prefer Invisalign because of its discreet appearance compared to the highly visible and often unappealing metal braces.
The clear aligners are removable, so if you have a special occasion, just remove them and place them in your mouth when done, unlike metal or ceramic braces that are there to stay. Every patient is unique, and we will evaluate your needs and goals to determine if Invisalign or another orthodontic technique can provide the outcome you desire.
During your initial consultation, our dentists will take 3D images of your teeth and oral structures. We will send the information directly to an Invisalign lab, where they will produce custom-fit aligners for you to wear.
Each clear aligner should be worn for about one to two weeks before you move on to the next tray in the series. You can move your aligners to eat, drink, brush, and floss. However, you should wear them at all other times to optimize their benefits.
The time it takes to complete your treatment will depend on several factors, including the severity of misalignment, how consistent you are with wearing the aligners, and other considerations. Depending on your unique treatment plan, the clear aligner process can take between 6 and 18 months to complete.
We will go over the expected timeline with you during your initial visit so you can be well-informed about the length of the procedure. If you have any questions, we are always happy to address them. We want you to have all the information you need for the fastest and most comfortable treatment possible.
The price of Invisalign generally ranges from $3,500 to $8,000, comparable to traditional metal braces. This wide range is because Invisalign offers many options, known as Express, Limited, and Full Treatment, and each has a different associated cost. The final expense will also depend on the number of aligners you need, the complexity of your orthodontic concerns, and various other considerations. We will review your treatment plan’s cost with you during your initial consultation.
If you have dental insurance that offers a reduced cost for braces, Invisalign will likely be included. If you plan to pay out of pocket, we work with dental financing companies that can help.

Invisalign simplifies things for the patient, but the procedure still requires dental professionals with a great deal of experience and training in orthodontic treatment for optimal results. Our dentists have been named #1 Elite Providers by Invisalign due to their extensive experience, skill, and expertise with this technique.
While all Invisalign providers are trained in this method, only a small percentage are designated Elite Providers. Look for this classification when considering which dentist to choose for your treatment. We are happy to address additional questions about Invisalign and the Elite Provider status during your initial consultation.
Invisalign can be an excellent option for many people, but it’s not for everyone. If our experienced dentists determine this treatment is not right for you, we can discuss other options to help you achieve your smile goals. If you have minor misalignment that’s primarily cosmetic in nature, porcelain veneers or cosmetic bonding can often conceal these issues and give you the stunning smile you’ve always wanted. If you have more significant gaps, crowding, or other concerns, we will recommend an alternative orthodontic approach.
In addition to Invisalign, we offer Invisalign Teen, designed for the needs of young people under 18. Invisalign Teen works the same way as Invisalign, with clear aligner trays used to shift the position of teeth. Many adolescents prefer clear aligners because of their greater comfort and less noticeable appearance. We can determine if this method is right for your child during the initial consultation.
