Step 1

Book Your First

Your dentist will begin by examining your smile to determine whether Invisalign is right for you. Next, we will use a digital scanner to create a 3D image of your smile and show you what it could look like with Invisalign treatment.

Develop a Custom
Treatment Plan

Based on your assessment and your smile goals, we will map out a personalized Invisalign treatment plan including timelines. Your plan will include the exact movement of your teeth which will occur with each set of aligners.

Start Your Custom
Treatment Plan

We will produce a series of custom Invisalign clear aligners just for you. By simply wearing your aligners for 20-22 hours each day, removing them to eat, drink, brush and floss, they will gradually begin to correct the positions of your teeth.
