The revolutionary and removable way to get the smile of your dreams
What is Invisalign?
Invisalign is a comfortable, clear, and removable way to get the smile you’ve always dreamed of. The treatment consists of a series of aligners that fit snugly over the teeth. The aligners are created using cutting-edge 3D computer imaging to provide the most highly personalized treatment possible.

How does Invisalign work?
Our orthodontist will create custom aligner trays for you. Each set of trays will be perfectly calibrated to achieve a certain tooth movement. When worn the correct number of hours and in the correct order, the aligners work to guide your teeth to your perfect smile. You wear each aligner set for approximately 22 hours a day for one week before moving on to the next set in the series. You’ll visit our offices approximately every 10-12 weeks so we can monitor your progress.
Does Invisalign work on every type of case?
Yes, with few exceptions. While the technology has improved over the years, Dr. Thomas Chae believes that many companies and providers have overprescribed Invisalign and other clear aligner products to the detriment of their patients. For patients with certain facial types and overbites, using only clear aligners is not and will never be the best option and may in fact worsen the bite. There are several ways to work around this, so please schedule a complimentary consultation to see what type of treatment would be best for you!
Is Invisalign expensive?
When Invisalign was first introduced, it was much more expensive than traditional orthodontic treatment and many insurances did not cover it. That is no longer the case. Today, Invisalign treatment is as affordable as traditional treatment, and most major insurance companies also cover a portion of the cost.
