This series of clear aligners are designed to straighten your teeth faster and more discreetly than metal brackets and wires.

For you, it's a win-win - you'll receive the very best care from the Durham dentists you know and trust!
How Does Invisalign Treatment Work?The Invisalign system uses a series of removable plastic trays that are built for easy care and comfort. The clear aligners are custom-fit to your teeth and have a similar feel to a mouth guard. Each set of these clear braces are worn for about 2 weeks before being swapped out for the next set. Prior to beginning treatment, our Invisalign dentists will take a full assessment of your jaw and oral structures to ensure that the system is right for you. If you are a great candidate, our team will layout a treatment plan that is customized to your unique case. Benefits of Invisalign treatment include:
- Discreet orthodontic treatment. Invisalign is the best invisible braces system for a reason - it's discreet and it works! These nearly invisible aligners are crystal-clear so that your natural smile can shine through.
- Improved oral health. Invisalign clear teeth aligners are designed to be removed throughout the day. This means that you can brush and floss just like you did prior to orthodontic treatment.
- No dietary restrictions. Since invisible aligners are meant to be taken out during meal times, patients do not face any dietary restrictions. Enjoy all of your favorite foods during treatment!
- Faster results. While treatment times vary from patient to patient, you can expect to see straighter teeth in as early as one month. On average, Invisalign treatment takes just 12 to 18 months to complete.
