Invisalign vs. Braces

Dental BondingBlue Stone Hills Dentistry provides comprehensive general dentistry, cosmetic dentistry, and restorative dentistry services to families across the Harrisonburg, VA area and JMU faculty and students. Additionally, we offer other specialty options to benefit your smile, such as Invisalign teeth-straightening treatment.

What is Invisalign?

Invisalign is a discreet orthodontic treatment option for patients who wish to achieve a straight, confident smile without braces. Instead of metal brackets and wires, this system relies on a series of clear, custom-made aligners that go over your teeth. Invisalign aligners are transparent, making them virtually invisible, and each set is specifically designed by our experienced dentists to meet your smile needs.

How Does Invisalign Work?

Clear Invisalign aligners are created using 3D digital imaging technology, which utilizes models of your teeth and the treatment plan set out by your dentist as a guideline. Each aligner is designed for a different stage of your treatment process. As soon as you have reached the time limit for one aligner, you simply pop it out and insert a new one. Slowly but surely this will shift your teeth into the desired alignment, earning you a new smile!

Benefits of Invisalign

There are many benefits in choosing Invisalign over braces. Some of these benefits include:

  • Clear aligners are virtually invisible
  • No metal wires and brackets to irritate gums
  • No food restrictions; aligners can be removed for eating and drinking
  • Easier oral hygiene due to aligner removability
  • In most cases treatment time is shorter than it is for braces
  • Extra protection against teeth grinding
  • Ability to remove aligners for special occasions
