World-Class Way to a Beautiful Smile
Your Invisalign® clear aligners are custom-made for you. The aligners are virtually invisible and fit snugly over your teeth.
Each aligner shifts your teeth slightly, moving them to achieve your ideal smile. Your aligners are engineered to use the right amount of force in the right place at the right time.
When you change to the next set of aligners (typically every two weeks) your teeth gradually move into position, following a custom treatment plan mapped out by Dr. Wanlass.
The Advantages Over Braces
While the results may appear the same—a confident, beautiful smile—when you stop and actually compare Invisalign to other teeth-straightening options, the advantages become quite apparent. Knowing the pros and cons of each option ahead of time will help you make a more confident decision.

Steps to Straight Teeth
The Initial Consultation. Dr. Wanlass will discuss your needs and evaluate whether Invisalign treatment is right for you.
Your Custom Treatment Plan. Using a digital scanner system, a fast, precise 3D digital image or your teeth will be created by Dr. Wanlass. A detailed treatment plan will be mapped out, including the exact movements of your teeth and how long your treatment will last. The exciting part of Invisalign is being able to see a 3D representation of how your teeth will move during treatment. You'll also be able to see a preview of your new smile!
Your Invisalign Clear Aligners. Your custom-made aligners will be made of proprietary SmartTrack® material. They're virtually invisable, so most people won't even notice you're wearing them.
Your Progress. As you wear each set of aligners, your teeth will gently and gradually shift into place. Depending on your treatment plan, Dr. Wanlass may recommend that you begin wearing a new set of aligners every week and schedule check-ups every six weeks or so.
Taking Care of Your New Smile. When your treatment is complete, Dr. Wanlsss will provide you with a custom made retainer, using the same state-of-the-art technoolgy used to make your Invisalign aligners. Wearing your retainer as instructed by Dr. Wanlass will make sure you protect your new smile and investment.
