The aligners appear virtually invisible when placed over your smile.  Unlike metallic braces, Invisalign is made from a clear plastic that doesn’t show up in photographs and is not noticeable in conversation. There are no brackets or wires.  The plastic aligners are smooth and fit comfortably over your smile. Unlike with traditional braces, Invisalign aligners are removed during meals.  This means that you don’t have dietary restrictions while you straighten your teeth.  Just don’t forget to brush and floss after!
