Invisalign

An alternative to traditional braces, Invisalign clear aligners are virtually invisible, comfortable to wear, removable for easy cleaning, and they do not restrict what patients can eat.

Made with 3-D computer imaging, you can view your own virtual Invisalign treatment plan before starting, so you can see how your straight teeth will look when your treatment is complete.

How does Invisalign work?

You wear a set of aligners for about two weeks, removing them only to eat, drink, brush, and floss. As you replace each aligner with the next in the series, your teeth will move—little by little, week by week—until they have straightened to their final positions. You'll visit Smiles by White about once every ten weeks to ensure that your treatment is progressing as planned. Total treatment time varies based on complexity of treatment and can be anywhere from 4 to 30 months. Typically, Invisalign takes the same amount of time as traditional braces, with an average treatment length of 18 months for a routine orthodontic case.

If you have been told by other dentists that you are not a candidate for Invisalign, get a second opinion from Smiles by White. As an Elite Premier Invisalign Provider, Dr. John white effectively treats a wide variety of cases, including crowding, spacing, crossbite, overbite, and underbite.
