A Positive Alternative to Braces If you have always wanted a straighter, more balanced smile but do not want the hassle of traditional braces, there is an excellent solution: Invisalign®, which is available for patients in our Grand Rapids, Michigan office. Instead of brackets and wires, the Invisalign® system uses a series of clear plastic trays to move the teeth into alignment gradually. Having your smile straightened with Invisalign® is discrete, comfortable, and effective – an excellent way to attain the beautiful smile you deserve.
What is Invisalign®?
Invisalign® is an effective solution for minor orthodontic problems (such as crookedness, crowding, and gaps between the teeth). The Invisalign® system uses a series of clear plastic trays, or aligners, similar to teeth whitening trays. The aligners are custom-crafted by specially trained Invisalign® technicians, who use advanced computer technology to map out the patient’s entire treatment from start to finish. The imaging software depicts the teeth’s final position, and each set of aligners is crafted to move the teeth closer to that position.

Benefits of Invisalign®
We have found that numerous benefits of Invisalign® attract patients seeking to straighten their teeth. Invisalign® aligners are virtually invisible – so inconspicuous that people are unlikely to notice that you are wearing them. They are also removable, so you can still enjoy all your favorite foods and brush and floss with ease. The aligners are custom-crafted and they fit comfortably, causing little disruption to the patient’s everyday life. The results produced by Invisalign® become especially striking when patients undergo treatment in conjunction with other cosmetic dentistry procedures, such as teeth whitening, for a total smile makeover. To learn more about the benefits of Invisalign®, schedule a consultation at our conveniently located Grand Rapids office.
