Invisalign clear aligners provide an effective way to straighten your teeth while remaining virtually invisible. Wearing the comfortable, customized aligners will gradually shift your teeth into their correct position. Correcting teeth alignment is imperative, not just cosmetically, but for overall health. Invisalign offers the best of both worlds: comfortable, efficient straightening with an essentially invisible appearance.

Dr. Dickens and the whole team were awesome! They made me feel welcome and explained what was going on throughout the process. It was a normal 6-month check-in but I had X-rays. They explained problem areas and ways to reverse any damage. They're dependable and friendly.
