We Are Certified Invisalign Providers Providing You with 3 Treatment Options
Invisalign allows patients to straighten their smiles without the discomfort and obvious appearance of traditional braces. Patients receive between 20 and 30 custom-made trays that gently shift the teeth into their proper position. Every two weeks, you will change out the aligner for the next in the series and watch as your smile transforms.
Invisalign Teen works in the same way but has an additional feature to help monitor daily use. The aligners are equipped with a light indicator that shifts colors once the tray has been worn for the recommended 22 hours of the day. It's a great way to encourage accountability in younger patients, and give parents peace of mind.
Invisalign Express is an accelerated system, condensing your orthodontic treatment into a three to six-month time frame. Invisalign Express is designed to rapidly straighten teeth using less than half the number of aligners in the traditional system. The best candidates have mild misalignment and only need to correct the rotation of their teeth.

Why Choose Invisalign Treatment? 3 Advantages of Clear Aligners
The main advantage of Invisalign over orthodontic braces is the discreet, clear material. Made from BPA-free plastic, the aligners are designed to fit securely over your teeth while remaining virtually invisible.
Your clear aligners are also removable, making it easy to brush, floss, and maintain good oral hygiene. You can continue to eat all the foods you love. Simply remove the trays during meal times!
Aligners are a much safer and comfortable option for patients who lead particular active lifestyles or play contact sports. With completely smooth surfaces, you avoid the irritation and discomfort of metal brackets.
Invisalign Can Also Improve Your Oral Health...
While Invisalign is designed to give you a more attractive smile, treatment may actually benefit your oral health. When teeth are spaced properly and rest at the proper angles, brushing and flossing are easier and more effective. Orthodontic treatment can also improve the balance of your bite, reducing unnecessary wear on the crowns of your teeth. Better occlusion can also prevent headaches and other painful conditions such as TMJ disorder.
Limitations to Candidacy
Typically, Invisalign is most successful in treating mild to moderate orthodontic issues. For more complex misalignment, our dentists may recommend braces.
The best way to determine your candidacy for Invisalign is to schedule a consultation at our Charlotte, NC, practice. Dr. Pinnix or Dr. Betancourt will examine your teeth and take digital impressions of your smile to determine if Invisalign will be an effective orthodontic treatment.
Your Invisalign Treatment
Some patients can see a noticeable difference in just a few months.

What Does Invisalign Cost?
Believe it or not, Invisalign is no more expensive than orthodontic treatment with braces. While the cost does vary from patient to patient, the price is usually dependent on the extent of misalignment, not the form of orthodontics.
If you have a dental insurance plan that includes orthodontic treatment, it can typically go towards covering Invisalign. However, if you are uninsured, or your plan does not include orthodontics, we are happy to offer financing through CareCredit® and Citi® Health.
