Get Straight Teeth!

Designed as an alternative to traditional braces, Invisalign® can inconspicuously straighten crooked and unevenly spaced teeth. Invisalign eliminates bulky metal brackets and wires by using a system of clear plastic aligners instead. Each set of aligners is custom-made to fit the patient’s teeth comfortably while gently guiding the teeth into their ideal position. Cosmetic dentist Dr. Trevelin DMD, recommends Invisalign for patients who want to discreetly improve the appearance of their smile and the function of their bite.

The Benefits of Invisalign

Invisalign not only offers the advantages of traditional braces but brings in additional perks:

Discreet Treatment: Custom-made clear plastic aligners make the treatment virtually unnoticeable.

Comfort and Convenience: Aligners are removable, allowing for easy teeth cleaning and no dietary restrictions.

Fewer Dental Visits: Issues such as broken wires or irritations common with metal brackets are a non-concern. Furthermore, in many scenarios, Invisalign can achieve results faster than traditional braces.

Optimized Oral Hygiene: Removing aligners during meals and oral care ensures an almost unchanged oral hygiene routine. Remember to brush post meals and prior to reinserting the aligners!

Predictable Outcomes: During your initial consultation, we provide a predicted treatment duration and a preview of your future smile.

Candidates for Invisalign

Those with misaligned, crowded teeth or with orthodontic issues like:

- Crowded teeth due to limited jaw space.
- Gaps arising from missing teeth or gum issues.
- Disproportionate jaw growth causing underbites or overbites.
- Misaligned jaws leading to crossbites.

Dr. Tais will evaluate your specific needs during the initial consultation to determine if Invisalign is right for you.

In the hands of an experienced cosmetic dentist, Invisalign removable teeth aligners can have a myriad of advantages over traditional braces. For instance, they are generally considered much more comfortable than traditional braces, which are composed of wires and brackets. They can also be removed, which allows patients to eat, drink, and perform daily oral hygiene routines more easily. In addition, Invisalign’s clear and transparent material can benefit patients who do not want others to know they are undergoing orthodontic treatment. The aligners also require much less maintenance and fewer trips to the dentist than traditional braces. With that said, not every patient is a candidate for Invisalign - and some complex cases require braces, then Invisalign. And some rare cases, Patients require braces after Invisalign.


“Do-it-yourself” clear aligners have circulated the internet for many years. In some cases, they are alleged to straighten the teeth much more quickly than is possible with a professional orthodontic treatment, and they are often marketed at a very low price. It is important to note that many of these DIY teeth straightening systems do not require patients to see a dentist or orthodontist in-person for monitoring of the treatment in a fully equipped dental office.

We believe that it is absolutely essential for orthodontic treatments that promise to straighten the teeth and correct other common conditions to be regularly monitored, in-person, by a qualified dental professional to mitigate risks and diminish the possibility of complications or unsatisfactory results. Invisalign® requires this type of monitoring and can only be performed by qualified providers. For the safest possible treatment and the best chance of achieving the desired outcome, we strongly suggest you seek the help of an experienced provider such as Dr. Taís Trevelin (Lowry). Be sure never to wash your aligners with extremely hot water, as doing so can mar their shape.
