"My smile is very important to me. I never really had huge issues with my teeth but I did have some spacing that I was not happy with. Deciding to get invisalign was one of the best decisions I've ever made. The hard part was finding a facility that would tend to my needs and make me feel at home. I researched for quite some time before actually picking a place, but I finally ended up choosing Luxury Dentistry.”

Invisalign comes with many great benefits over the traditional metal braces. It is much more discreet, so adults and teenagers who are concerned with their appearance feel less self-conscious about having corrective cosmetic dentistry. Further, because the aligners are removed before mealtimes, there are no dietary restrictions such as with traditional braces.
All Invisalign patients must meet the following criteria:
- Commit to the treatment. For the best results, aligners must be worn 20 to 22 hours a day, so patients who cannot follow treatment procedures will not benefit from Invisalign.
- Have healthy teeth and gums. Patients with periodontal disease or untreated gums are not ideal candidates for Invisalign.
- Have good oral hygiene habits. Patients must thoroughly brush and floss after eating and before putting the aligners back on.
- Is a non-smoker. Smokers are not eligible for Invisalign, as it interferes with the plastic aligners.
