Advantages of Invisalign

Invisalign clear aligners are the most discreet way to get a straight smile. These state-of-the-art plastic aligners get switched out every few weeks to gently bring your teeth into the correct position. Here are some reasons our patients love Invisalign:

  •  •  Sleek and comfortable design
  •  •  Noticeable results in as little as 6 weeks
  •  •  Fewer appointments
  •  •  Fewer dietary restrictions

Advantages of Braces

Braces are a tried-and-true orthodontic treatment that can address most types of bite malocclusions. New advances in orthodontic technology have made modern braces more sleek and comfortable than ever before! Here are some reasons our patients love braces:

  •  • Quicker treatment time
  •  • Can address many types of bite misalignments
  •  • Works around the clock to fix your smile

Which is Cheaper: Braces or Invisalign?

Without examining your bite, it’s hard to estimate how much braces or Invisalign will cost for you. 

There are many different factors that affect the cost of orthodontic treatment, such as the length of treatment time, the severity of the misalignment, and how much your insurance will cover.
