Most adults don’t look forward to the idea of traditional bracket and wire braces and the frequent (sometimes painful) trips to the dentist office. With Invisalign, the process and experience is totally different. After your initial smile assessment, you’ll receive a set of clear plastic aligners – one for your top teeth and another for the lower teeth.
