Invisalign aligners are clear, smooth plastic trays that fit snugly over your teeth. They reposition your teeth a little bit at a time and can be removed at any time. Each tray is custom-made to fit your unique smile. They are made of a thermoplastic material, which is comfortable and very durable.
Invisalign aligners apply controlled force to your teeth, causing them to shift slightly. The aligners use just the right amount of force in the right place at the right time, applying pressure to just the right places. Every two weeks, you switch to a new set of aligners, and your teeth gradually shift into place.
These aligners offer lots of benefits, such as:
