INVISALIGN dentist - Staten Island


INVISALIGN is an orthodontic system using clear aligners that are custom molded for each individual patient. The process uses a series of removable clear aligners that are custom-molded to fit you. They are almost invisible and very comfortable, and they will gradually straighten your teeth into a smile you’ll be proud of. We’ve had sports figures wear them while they were competing, actors wear them on film and on Broadway, and TV news anchors wear them while they were reporting. The Invisalign system typically takes less than a year to produce amazing results and works well for both teens and adults.

How long does INVISALIGN take?

The process of Invisalign can take as long as traditional braces. The treatment plan can take anywhere from about 12 months for adults to normally no more than 18 months.

What are the advantages of Invisalign?

Invisalign allows you to eat whatever food you want to enjoy
Invisalign allows you to remove the device whenever you want
Invisalign consists of smooth comfortable plastic aligners unlike sharp metal
Invisalign allows you more time in your schedule since you only need an office appointment with the dentist every 4 to 6 weeks.

Because Invisalign offers you comfort, convenience and virtual invisibility during treatment, nothing comes between your lifestyle and having an incredible smile. With Invisalign, you can be as active as you like, remove your aligners for special events, and feel more confident everywhere you go. Invisalign is clear and practically invisible, so nothing gets in the way of your new smile. It’s unobtrusive in business meetings or social gatherings with no metal wires or bands to irritate your mouth, and many people won’t even notice you’re wearing aligners.
