Why You Should Choose Invisalign Braces Instead of Traditional Braces

Braces. The very word calls up an image most people older than 10 want to avoid. You imagine sore teeth, bands coming loose, and cringing a little inside every time you smile, as you imagine everyone in the room trying not to stare at your mouth. But that word changes entirely if you place another in front of it: “Invisalign.”


Invisalign braces are transparent braces that change the position of your teeth incrementally over a period of time. If your teeth are too close together, too far apart, or unevenly spaced, Invisalign braces may be the answer. They can also be used to treat overbite, crossbite, and other alignment problems.

Simple Process

The process is simple. The dentist uses molds and photographs of your teeth to construct a three-dimensional computer model that projects how your teeth might be gradually adjusted over time. Then the dentist will give you a series of aligners to fit over your teeth—a new one every two weeks. Your teeth will move just a fraction of a millimeter with each new aligner, but by the time your treatment is finished, you'll have a smile you can be proud of.

Many Advantages

The most obvious advantage of Invisalign braces over the traditional kind is their near-invisibility. Your Invisalign braces will not be noticeable to most people, so you won't have to explain why you're wearing them to everyone you run into.

Another marvelous advantage of Invisalign braces is that you can remove them while you eat. You don't have to worry about food particles getting stuck between them, forcing you to spend time cleaning them and subjecting you to the risk of tartar and cavities. Most users also find Invisalign braces more comfortable to wear on a daily basis than traditional ones.

Invisalign: What is it?

Invisalign is a modern way to straighten your teeth using a custom-made series of aligners created for you and only you.  These aligner trays are made of smooth, comfortable and virtually invisible plastic that you simply wear over your teeth.  Wearing the aligners will gradually and gently shift your teeth into place, based on the exact movements your dentist or orthodontist plans out for you.  There are no metal brackets to attach and no wires to tighten.  You simply pop in a new set of aligners approximately every two weeks, until your treatment is complete and you achieve the confident smile that you’ve always wanted.  The best part about the whole process is that most people won’t even know you’re straightening your teeth.

Invisalign Braces – The Fast, Affordable, and “Invisible” Way to Straighten Your Teeth

By Dr. Michael J. Wei, DDS - Manhattan New York City Cosmetic Dentist

Want to get perfectly straight teeth for a great new smile without wearing traditional “metal braces?” Clear Invisalign braces align your teeth faster than traditional metal braces and are less expensive, more comfortable, and virtually invisible. Invisalign Are a Fast, Affordable, and “Invisible” Alternative to Metal Braces.

You want to look your best, but if your smile’s front teeth are misaligned, you may be considering braces. Invisalign braces are a popular new alternative to the “traditional” metal braces that use metal wires and bulky brackets which detract from your image.

  • Invisalign clear braces are faster, less expensive, more comfortable to wear, and are nearly invisible while you’re wearing them.
  • To give you a straight smile you’ve always wanted without having to wear traditional metal braces, Dr. Wei uses a sophisticated new 3D imaging technology to get information about your teeth and bite.
  • Then, he will create your orthodontic plan for your smile with a computerized “blueprint” for constructing your Invisalign braces.
  • Finally, Dr. Wei sends the data for your clear braces to Invisalign where a custom series of acrylic aligners will be manufactured in a computerized machine.
  • You’ll wear each aligner for about two weeks and then move on to the next set. Each set of aligners moves your teeth closer to the desired final outcome – a great new smile with perfectly aligned teeth! You’ll need to visit Dr. Wei about every four to six weeks so that he can check your progress.
