Do you want to straighten your smile, but are afraid of wearing metal brackets and wires for years? If so, it’s time to rethink orthodontic Invisalign treatment. There is a new way to straighten your smile without uncomfortable, unsightly brackets and wires. It’s called Invisalign! Dr. JC Duncan in Huntersville, North Carolina offers state-of-the-art Invisalign treatment to get you smiling again.

Invisalign can fix the same flaws and alignment problems as conventional brackets and wires. It’s the perfect option if you have:

  • An underbite or overbite
  • A crossbite or open bite
  • Rotated, twisted teeth
  • Crowded or overlapped teeth
  • Poorly-aligned or gapped teeth

So, why should you choose Invisalign instead of conventional orthodontics? Invisalign offers:

  • Quick treatment, because Invisalign treatment is completed in an average of 9 to 15 months
  • Comfortable treatment, because there are no sharp metal parts to irritate your gums, cheeks, or tongue
  • Discreet treatment, because Invisalign appliances are virtually invisible to people around you
  • Healthy treatment, because you remove the appliances to brush and floss your teeth easily
  • Convenient treatment, because you can remove the appliances to eat and enjoy the foods you love

Your Invisalign treatment begins with your first set of clear, smooth plastic trays called aligners. You wear the first set for 2 weeks, and then progress to your next set of aligners which you wear for another 2 weeks. You move on to another set of aligners every 2 weeks as your teeth gradually and comfortably move into proper position.

If you want a straight smile, don’t settle for old-school, uncomfortable metal brackets and wires when you can have the comfort and convenience of Invisalign.
