A Tucson Dentist That Offers Invisalign

Invisalign Clear Aligners

Invisalign clear aligners are virtually invisible. In fact, you’ll be surprised to find out how many people won’t even notice you’re going through treatment. That means not having to feel self-conscious about how you look.

With it’s smooth, comfortable aligners, there are no irritating brackets or wires to worry about and no food restrictions that will change your eating habits. Plus with fewer doctor visits, Invisalign fits conveniently into your busy lifestyle.

This treatment not only straightens your teeth, it allows you to continue to brush and floss normally since the aligners are removable. As you know, having straight teeth can not only affect your oral health, it can impact your professional and social life as well.

We will start by mapping out a detailed treatment plan with your goals in mind. An exciting part of the Invisalign technology is seeing your digital 3D representation of how your teeth will move during treatment and the flexibility to make changes with the doctor before the case begins.

Call us to schedule a complimentary consultation so that you will have the smile you’ve always wanted.

Is Invisalign treatment for me?

This will help us discuss the aesthetic goals, and we'll be able to provide recommendations that fit your dental situation. Chances are you're a good candidate if you have healthy teeth and gums.

Once you've been evaluated, our team will give you a digital treatment plan that can help map out a step-by-step transformation of your teeth. Once we've come to a plan for you, your aligners will be created.
