Are you a Candidate For Invisalign or Candid Clear Aligners?

Find out if you are through here:

Financing is Available

If you’re worried that Invisalign® treatment costs too much for your current budget, we can work with you to make treatment more affordable. We accept financing plans through In-House financing, CareCredit®, and LendingClub®. These reputable financing companies offer affordable monthly payment plans so you can easily budget for the total cost of treatment.

Additional Considerations for Clear Aligners Treatment

Traditional braces may be more suitable for severe malocclusion, crowding, or gaps. During a consultation, our dentist will carefully evaluate your bite to recommend the right course of treatment.
Because invisalign and candid clear aligners are removable, you must be consistent and fully dedicated to the process. If it is likely that you will forget to wear your clear aligners, another form of orthodontics may be more appropriate for you.

The Invisalign® Timeline

What to Expect
Frame 1

Digital Scanning

To prepare for Invisalign® treatment, your dentist will take 3D digital scans of your mouth.
Frame 2

Preview Your Results

We strive to make sure our patients are fully informed about the procedures they choose, so we will show you a digital preview illustrating the projected movement of your teeth.
Frame 3

Aligner Fabrication

Your unique plan will be sent to the Invisalign® lab, where technicians will craft your aligners from clear, smooth plastic. Your customized aligner trays will be based on the digital images taken at our office so they fit precisely and produce your desired results.
number 4

Wearing the Aligners

Once the trays are finished, you will wear each set for about two weeks. With their slightly different shapes, the aligners exert mild pressure on your teeth, gradually straightening your smile. It is important to follow your doctor’s instructions and wear your trays for 20 to 22 hours a day.
Frame 36396-3

Cleaning the Aligners

You must also clean the aligners daily to prevent decay, gum diseases, and tooth discoloration. Use a soft-bristled toothbrush and lukewarm water to remove any debris that accumulates. It is also important to brush and floss daily.
Number 6

Follow-Up Appointments

You will return to our office about every six weeks so we can monitor your progress and make adjustments as needed.
Number 7

Completing Treatment

Completing Treatment Once you have worn your last pair of aligner trays for two weeks, your treatment is considered complete but you will still need to wear a retainer to keep your results. At this point, you may wish to undergo whitening or another cosmetic dentistry treatment to further enhance your smile.

Cathy was very informative about the different procedures and how they would be done. They will check with my insurance and we would discuss cost after my next appointment.

I underwent 4 hours of heavy dental work under medicated sedation due to my dental anxiety plus 2 months ago I also did the same treatment and both times went extremely well. The Drs were nice and explained everything so my anxiety would stay in check. I’ve been a patient at Smiles for Life for over 6 years and also took my mother who suffers from advanced Parkinson’s to them for full dentures and they were fabulous 💙.

Cathy is delightful and skilled hygienist that I’ve counted on for nearly 20 years. Wouldn’t still be traveling nearly an hour from my new home to this dentist office if I didn’t have full confidence in Cathy.

When I embarked on my journey to find the right dental implant service, I initially gravitated towards the two prominent national brands in the field. However, my search took an unexpected and incredibly satisfying turn when I decided to explore the offerings of a local implant provider. Little did I know that this local gem would redefine my expectations of what a top-notch implant service should be like. Here's why my experience with them was nothing short of extraordinary: Meticulous Charting of Teeth and Gums: ★★★★★ One of the first things that set this local provider apart from the national giants was their unwavering commitment to precision and detail. While the big names seemed more focused on the implant procedure itself, this local gem took the time to meticulously chart the condition of my teeth and gums. This attention to detail ensured that my implant procedure was tailored to my specific needs and challenges. It was clear that they understood the importance of a solid foundation for the success of the implants. Infection Prevention Education: ★★★★★ Implant surgery is not without its risks, and one of the key concerns is the possibility of infection. What truly impressed me was the depth of information and guidance this local provider offered regarding infection prevention. They didn't just gloss over this critical aspect; they took the time to discuss the infection possibilities associated with dental implants and, more importantly, outlined a comprehensive plan to combat and mitigate such conditions. Their proactive approach to ensuring patient safety was truly reassuring. First-Year Implant Supervision: ★★★★★ Perhaps the most remarkable aspect of my experience with this local implant provider was their commitment to the long-term success of my dental implants. While the national brands seemed content with the implant procedure itself, this local provider went above and beyond by offering required supervision for the first year following the implant surgery. This level of aftercare and ongoing support was simply unparalleled and gave me peace of mind knowing that my oral health was in capable hands. In conclusion, my exploration journey for dental implants took an unexpected turn when I discovered this exceptional local implant provider. Their dedication to detail, infection prevention, and post-surgery care were nothing short of outstanding. They not only surpassed the standards set by the national brands but also redefined my expectations of what a truly exceptional implant service should encompass. If you're in search of dental implants and want an experience that goes above and beyond, I wholeheartedly recommend giving this local gem a visit. They've certainly earned my trust and gratitude.
