Get the beautiful smile you've always wanted.
Invisalign is the invisible way to straighten teeth using a series of custom-made, nearly undetectable aligners. And it's been proven effective in both clinical research and in practices nationwide. So whether your teeth are crowded, too far apart or have shifted since wearing braces, you'll have a new reason to smile.
The latest technology makes it possible
Upon an initial examination; Dr. Gerald Bittner Jr. will decide if Invisalign is right for you. Dr. Bittner will write a treatment plan and take an impression of your teeth, which are submitted to Invisalign. Using the latest advances in 3-D computer technology, Invisalign carefully translates Dr. Bittner instructions into a series of precisely customized aligners. You then wear each set of aligners for about two weeks, moving your teeth, gradually - week by week, millimeter by millimeter - until you've achieved the intended result: straighter teeth. Generally, you would visit Dr. Bittner no more than you would with braces and the length of treatment is about the same.

Frequently Asked Questions and Answers
How does Invisalign work?
Using the latest advances in 3-D computer technology, Invisalign translates your doctor's instructions into a series of nearly undetectable Aligners. You wear each set of Aligners for about two weeks, moving your teeth gradually week by week, millimeter by millimeter you've achieved the desired result.
Is Invisalign effective?
Thousands of doctors are treating patients with Invisalign. It works for a wide range of patients whose teeth are too crowded or have spaces between them, as well as for those whose teeth may have shifted after having worn braces in their youth.
How often will I have to wear my Aligners?
Invisalign only works while you're wearing the Aligners. It's recommended that you wear your Aligners full-time, day and night, except to eat, brush and floss your teeth - or as directed by your doctor.
How long does Invisalign take?
The duration of treatment depends on the severity of your case, which determines the number of Aligners you need. However, the average is about 12 months or less, but only your doctor determines the length of your treatment.
How much does Invisalign cost?
As with traditional braces, the cost will be based on the complexity of your case and the length of treatment. Many doctors charge the same for Invisalign as they do for traditional braces. Also, if your dental insurance plan covers traditional braces, it will typically cover Invisalign to the same extent.
