Invisalign is a clear orthodontic aligner system that can correct orthodontic problems such as crooked teeth, overcrowding, gaps, and bite problems. It works by wearing thermoplastic aligners that are fabricated from impressions taken of your teeth. 

By wearing these aligners for 22 hours per day, the aligners exert gentle pressure on the teeth to gradually shift them into the proper alignment. 

If we need to perform more complex tooth movements, we can bond Invisalign attachments to your teeth which are buttons made of composite resin which are placed on certain teeth and come in varying sizes and shapes according to desired teeth movement. 

The attachments anchor the aligners and help exert extra pressure on specific teeth to encourage them to move in more complex ways. To correct misaligned bites, we pair the attachments with elastics which shift the jaws forward or backward.

Benefits of Invisalign

Transparent - The aligners are clear, so they blend in with your natural teeth, making them hard to spot unless someone is looking for them. Even attachments are tooth-colored and can’t be seen when wearing your aligners. 

This is a sharp contrast to the old days of wearing hunks of metal over teeth to straighten them. Patients who are concerned about the aesthetics of their smile prefer to straighten their teeth with invisible Invisalign aligners.

More Hygienic - Since the aligners are removable, you will be able to take them out to brush and floss your teeth. A big issue with traditional braces treatment is that the bonded brackets and wires obscure the tooth surfaces and make it very difficult to clean thoroughly clean the teeth. This can lead to discoloration and cavities when the braces were removed. You don’t need to worry about that with Invisalign, because your regular oral hygiene routine will remain undisturbed.

Convenient - The removability of the aligners also means you can eat whatever you want so long as you take the aligners out first. While braces require patients to limit their diets to prevent oral health problems and damage to their braces, often needing to avoid their favorite foods, Invisalign allows you to live your life without restrictions. Since you also don’t need to get your braces tightened with Invisalign, you don’t need to attend as many routine appointments.

Comfortable - Braces exert more forceful pressure and the feeling of metal against the teeth can be uncomfortable, especially if you accidentally damage or break your braces. This can lead to oral injuries such as cuts to the inside of the mouth or damage to your teeth. 

With Invisalign’s patented SmartTrack aligner technology, your teeth will remain cushioned with soft thermoplastic that exerts much gentler pressure.

Who Is a Good Candidate for Invisalign?

A good candidate for Invisalign is someone who has minor to moderate orthodontic problems and is in good oral health. As long as you don’t have a severely misaligned bite, large gaps, need teeth rotated past 20 degrees, or need to be lowered or raised into the gums, then Invisalign is suitable to treat most orthodontic problems discreetly and comfortably.

Take-Home Teeth Whitening

Whiten your teeth in the comfort of your own home! Take-home whitening kits provide more subtle, gradual results over the course of about a week.

We’ll start off by taking impressions of your teeth, using either dental putty or digital images with an intraoral scanner. These impressions will help us create a set of reusable custom whitening trays made just for you.

After the process is complete, we’ll provide you with your custom trays, whitening product, and instructions for proper use. Simply follow your dentist’s instructions, and you’ll get professional-grade results right in your own home.

In-Office Teeth Whitening

In-office whitening is a treatment process done by your dentist that provides speedy results. After just one round of whitening, your smile can brighten up to 10 shades in about an hour. This treatment is perfect if you want to whiten your teeth for an upcoming special occasion.

To protect your mouth during the treatment, your dentist will apply a special protective gel to your gums, while using retractors to keep your cheeks away from your teeth and the whitening treatment. Your dentist will then apply a powerful whitener to your teeth and activate it with a UV light. After an hour, the treatment is rinsed away to reveal your bright, white smile. To achieve your desired level of whiteness, this process may be repeated several times over multiple appointments.

Dental Bonding, Shaping & Contouring

Dental bonding uses a special tooth-colored dental resin that is applied directly to your tooth during treatment to match the shade of your smile. By carefully shaping and sculpting the resin, your dentist will correct the shape of your tooth and restore your smile’s overall look and functionality. Each tooth treatment takes only about 30-60 minutes, and the process is completely non-invasive.

Shaping & contouring is also called enameloplasty. This cosmetic process is often used alongside bonding. To shape and contour, a thin layer of enamel is removed from uneven, chipped, or pointy teeth to grant you a more even, appealing smile.


Veneers are thin, tooth-colored porcelain shells that are attached to the front of teeth to treat small gaps between teeth, severe staining, misshapen or uneven teeth, and much more. Durable and long-lasting, veneers can completely transform your smile. Veneers are permanent and cannot be removed, because they require the removal of some of your natural enamel, which is an irreversible process.


Similar to veneers, Lumineers attach to the front of your tooth to improve its appearance. Lumineers are typically less than half of the thickness of a standard veneer, which is only about as thick as a contact lens. The unique porcelain material used for Lumineers is very thin, yet still durable.

Because of their thin nature, Lumineers can often be placed without removing any of your natural enamel, which allows them to be removed. However, since they are thinner, they are not right for all patients and their needs.

Botox & Fillers

Botox, or botulinum toxin, is a cosmetic treatment that is typically used to reduce the appearance of fine lines and smooth wrinkles on the skin. It can also be used to treat symptoms of TMD (temporomandibular joint disorders). Because dentists are incredibly familiar with the mouth and facial muscles, they are ideal administers of Botox for patients seeking relief from TMJ pain or a more youthful look to accompany their smile.

Fillers are used to enhance parts of the face, such as the lips and cheeks, to rejuvenate aging facial features and better compliment the smile. Patients struggling with sagging cheeks or thinning lips can greatly benefit from fillers to achieve a look that makes them feel more like themselves.

Cosmetic Dental Makeovers

If you’re unsure if any of the aforementioned treatments are the right fit for you, or if you think you may need multiple treatments to restore your smile, ask your dentist about a cosmetic dental makeover.

A cosmetic dental makeover is a highly customized, multi-treatment plan that’s specifically tailored to treat all issues you may have with your smile. Because each patient is unique, all processes are a little different. All involve multiple cosmetic and restorative dental procedures. The goal for every patient is to have them feeling proud of their brand new smile after all procedures are complete.

What dental issues can cosmetic dentistry solve?

Whatever issue you’re facing that relates to the appearance of your teeth, cosmetic dentistry can solve. Teeth whitening treatments are used to whiten stained or yellowing teeth and can help you look younger. Misshapen and uneven teeth, or teeth with minor tooth damage can be repaired through bonding shaping, and contouring. Dental crowns are occasionally used for cosmetic purposes, too. Every issue mentioned can be fixed with veneers or Lumineers. These versatile cosmetic treatments can also correct gaps between teeth, more severe tooth staining, and slightly crooked or crowded teeth.

Am I a good candidate for cosmetic dental treatments?

If your teeth and gums are healthy and you’re free of any major orthodontic issues, you may be a good candidate for cosmetic dentistry.

On the other hand, cosmetic treatment may not be the right fit for you if you struggle with oral health problems like gum disease or cavities, or if you have major issues with the alignment of your teeth or jaw. Restorative care or orthodontic treatment can resolve these problems before you decide to explore cosmetic dental treatment. In many cases, restorative care and orthodontics can give you a healthier and more beautiful smile.

Can I get more than one cosmetic dental procedure done at the same time?

arrow icon

Absolutely! It’s common to have multiple cosmetic dental procedures done at the same time. Dental bonding and enameloplasty, for example, are often done in the same appointment. If you’re looking to find out if you can have multiple cosmetic procedures done at once, ask your dentist for more information.

Is cosmetic dentistry covered by dental insurance?

arrow icon

Unfortunately, it is not common for cosmetic dentistry to be covered by dental insurance. Insurance providers often list cosmetic treatments as elective and unnecessary to the health of your smile. For most cosmetic cases, you will need to pay for treatment out-of-pocket. In some instances, your insurance may cover a small amount of costs for treatments like cosmetic crowns or veneers, but this is not common. If you’re looking for more details on your dental insurance coverage, contact your insurer. Be sure to also contact our practice to see if we can assist you with discounts or payment plans to help you cover treatment.
