What are Invisaligns?

Invisalign is a modern orthodontic treatment that utilizes clear aligners to straighten teeth gradually. These aligners are custom-made for each patient using advanced 3D imaging technology. Invisalign aligners are virtually invisible and can be easily removed for eating, brushing, and flossing, offering a level of convenience and comfort not typically associated with traditional braces.
Why Consider Invisalign Alternatives

Comparison between Invisalign and Smile Direct

When considering orthodontic treatment options, it's essential to weigh the differences between Invisalign and Smile Direct Club. While both aim to straighten teeth, there are notable distinctions in their approaches and outcomes.



Smile Direct Club

Treatment Complexity 

Capable of addressing a wide range of orthodontic issues, including crowding, spacing gaps, crossbite, and overbite.Primarily focusing on mild to moderate cases, it may not be suitable for individuals with complex issues.


Personalized treatment plans and professional oversight may lead to more predictable outcomes.While results are achievable, effectiveness may vary, particularly in cases requiring precise adjustments.

Treatment Time 

Treatment duration varies based on the complexity of the case, typically ranging from several months to a few years.Treatment duration may be shorter compared to Invisalign, but results may not be as comprehensive or precise.


Aligners are custom-made for each patient and are designed for a comfortable fit, minimizing irritation and discomfort.Comfort levels may vary, and some individuals may experience discomfort during treatment.


Aligners are removable, allowing for easier eating, brushing, and flossing, as well as the option to remove them for special occasions.Aligners are also removable but may not offer the same level of flexibility or convenience.


Generally more expensive compared to Smile Direct Club due to professional supervision and personalized treatment plans.Typically more affordable compared to Invisalign, making it a more budget-friendly option for some individuals.

Aligner Material

Made from SmartTrack® material, providing a comfortable fit and precise tooth movements for optimal results.Made from BPA-free plastic, designed to be comfortable and durable, but may not offer the same precision as SmartTrack® material.


The differences between Invisalign and conventional braces are significant. To start, both the Invisalign system and braces can treat a wide variety of complex cases, but the similarities stop there. Invisalign is a discreet system that is not noticeable when worn. The aligners are both flexible and comfortable because they can be removed as needed and they are made from a comfortable flexible material that doesn’t hurt your mouth, unlike braces. Furthermore, they don’t require painful wires or brackets. This is a convenient system that allows you to remove the aligners during different activities and easily put them back in.

Invisalign is a comfortable and effective system used to straighten teeth. Its proprietary smart track material makes the clear aligners comfortable to wear and effective at gently yet gradually straightening teeth. You may wear new aligners weekly to speed up the treatment process, decreasing the amount of time it takes to straighten your teeth to half the time that traditional braces take. Braces can be cumbersome and painful because they require wires and brackets. This is why they must be worn at all times, unlike the Invisalign system.

Problems that Invisalign Addresses

Invisalign is renowned for its ability to address various orthodontic issues effectively. Here's how it tackles some common dental problems:


Crowding is a common dental issue where there isn't enough space in the jaw for all the teeth to fit properly. This can lead to teeth overlapping or becoming misaligned, which not only affects the appearance of the smile but also makes oral hygiene more challenging. Invisalign offers an effective solution to crowding by gradually shifting the teeth into proper alignment. Using custom-made clear aligners, Invisalign creates space in the jaw and aligns the teeth without the need for traditional braces and metal wires. This approach not only improves the aesthetic appearance of the smile but also enhances oral health by making it easier to clean and maintain the teeth.

Spacing Gaps

Spacing gaps, also known as diastema, are characterized by noticeable gaps between teeth, which can detract from the overall appearance of the smile. Invisalign treatment addresses spacing gaps by gently moving the teeth closer together, resulting in a more uniform and aesthetically pleasing smile. The custom-designed clear aligners exert controlled pressure on the teeth, gradually closing the gaps and achieving optimal alignment. By closing spacing gaps, Invisalign not only enhances the cosmetic appearance of the smile but also improves bite function and oral health.


Crossbite occurs when the upper and lower teeth do not align correctly when biting down, leading to misalignment of the dental arches. This malocclusion can result in uneven wear of the teeth, jaw discomfort, and difficulties with chewing and speaking. Invisalign effectively corrects crossbite by gradually adjusting the position of the teeth, ensuring proper alignment and bite function. Through custom-designed treatment plans, Invisalign aligners apply precise pressure to reposition the teeth, achieving optimal alignment of the dental arches. By addressing crossbite, Invisalign not only improves the aesthetic appearance of the smile but also enhances overall oral health and function.


An overbite occurs when the upper front teeth overlap significantly with the lower front teeth, leading to an imbalanced bite and potential jaw issues. Invisalign offers a solution to overbite by gradually moving the upper teeth back and/or the lower teeth forward to achieve proper bite alignment. By customizing treatment plans to address the specific needs of each patient, Invisalign aligners exert controlled pressure on the teeth, gradually correcting the overbite and achieving optimal alignment. This not only enhances the aesthetic appearance of the smile but also improves bite function, jaw alignment, and overall oral health.

A set of aligners are worn for about 2 weeks, removing them only to eat, drink, brush, and floss.
As you replace each aligner with the next in the series, your teeth will move – little by little, week by week – until they have straightened to the final position the orthodontist has prescribed.
You will visit us approximately once every 6 weeks to ensure that your treatment is progressing as planned.
Total treatment time averages 11 months with the average number of aligners worn during treatment between 18 and 30. This of course will vary from case to case.
