Invisalign is the perfect way to correct your smile without the noticeable wires and brackets of traditional braces. Instead, we will use a series of clear, customized, removable appliances called aligners. Invisalign aligners are virtually undetectable, which means hardly anyone will know that you're straightening your teeth. Together, with Dr. Doré and our Lafayette staff, we will correct crooked or crowded teeth, and close gaps or adjust overbites to achieve your ideal smile goals. A straighter beautiful smile is right around the corner!

Clearly Different: Invisalign Treatment

Invisalign aligners are designed to move your teeth in small steps to the desired final position, prescribed by your orthodontist. Each aligner is precisely calibrated and manufactured to fit your mouth at each stage of the treatment plan. The easy, effective experience of Invisalign follows these steps to achieve a more desirable smile:

  • First, visit our Lafayette office to determine if Invisalign is right for you.
  • After sending precise treatment instructions, Invisalign uses advanced computer technology to translate these instructions in a sequence of finely calibrated aligners - as few as 12 or as many as 48.
  • Each aligner is worn for about two weeks and only taken out to eat, brush, and floss.
  • As you replace each aligner with the next, your teeth will begin to move gradually - week-by-week until the final alignment prescribed is attained. Then, you'll be smiling like you never have before!
