Ready to finally take the first step to straighten your teeth? Once you’ve made the decision to achieve your dream smile, it’s natural to be eager to see results as soon as possible. Invisalign, like braces, will straighten your teeth very gradually, so you may not notice a dramatic difference over night. It’s unrealistic to expect to start with Invisalign one week and see results the next. You won’t have to be patient for too long, however! While result speed varies between patients, some patients may begin to notice a subtle difference within 10 to 12 weeks. More»
You’ve tried on hundreds of dresses, selected the perfect venue, checked the guest list twice, and you’re ready to dance the night away with your groom. There’s just one problem: is your smile ready for your wedding day close-up?
From Instagram to Snapchat, the first photo many brides share on their wedding days is a selfie. More and more brides are posting selfies on social media while they’re getting ready with friends, preparing to walk down the aisle, or just after they’ve tied the knot and said, “I do!” Even with Instagram filters, selfies and other close-up are pretty revealing and unforgiving, showing the good and the bad– including crooked teeth.

Dreaming of straighter teeth and a perfect smile? If you’re considering Invisalign, it’s natural to have questions about this process and what to expect. One of the most common questions prospective patients ask is, “How do I select the right Invisalign provider?”
While many different factors may play a role in your final selection, the provider’s experience is one of the most important factors. The more successful cases a provider has completed, the more confident you’ll feel that the provider can do a great job on your teeth, too. Not every Invisalign provider is the same. To help put an Invisalign provider’s experience and skills in perspective, Invisalign has introduced five provider designations. These designations are based on the number of cases the provider has handled in their lifetime, as well as the number of cases the provider consistently handles each every six months. These are important distinctions. Lifetime reflects cumulative expertise while ongoing case counts ensure that the provider’s skills are fresh. Understanding these designations will help you feel more confident with your provider selection. More»
