Invisalign for Adults and Teens


It’s never too late to fix your smile! Adult aligners are very similar to the teen aligners, but do not have a blue usage indicator. Since Invisalign aligners are so discreet, more and more adults are choosing them to fix their smile later in life. If your teeth are strong and healthy, it is likely you will be a candidate for Invisalign. However, if you’ve suffered from tooth loss, bone loss, or gum disease, please talk with us to determine if Invisalign is right for you.

Everything You Need to Know About Invisible Aligners 


With busy schedules, schoolwork, friends, and countless other priorities, keeping track of your Invisalign aligners as a teen can become difficult. That’s why Invisalign teen aligners have a handy blue usage indicator on each and every pair. This way, the aligners can keep track of how long they’ve been worn each day, and the color can indicate if they need to be worn longer, or if usage time for the day is complete (22 hours a day for most patients).
