Step 1

Book Your First

We'll start by checking your smile to find out if Invisalign may be right for you. Next, we will use a digital scanner to produce a 3D image of your smile within minutes, and show you what it may look like after Invisalign treatment.

Develop a Custom
Treatment Plan

Based on the choices made in your first appointment, an Invisalign treatment plan will be mapped out for you, with timelines. Your plan will include the movement of your teeth that will occur with each set of aligners.

Start Your Custom
Treatment Plan

We will create a series of custom Invisalign clear aligners just for you. You'll wear them each day, removing them to drink, eat, brush and floss. As your treatment continues, your teeth will gradually begin to shift with your aligners.
