Invisalign is a revolutionary alternative to braces. Instead of metal brackets and wires, you’re fitted for a series of customized plastic trays that snap over your teeth.

The team at Diamond Dental assesses your smile goals to determine if Invisalign is right for you.
You first undergo a 3D scan of your teeth, which provides the blueprint for your customized treatment plan. Our team uses the iTero scanner to digitally capture the structure of your teeth and gums using the latest optical technology. The scanner is a compact, hand-held wand, utilizing only visible light with no exposure to ionizing radiation. iTero creates precise 3D models of your teeth to show you how your smile will look following treatment so you know what to expect!
The scan and treatment plan is sent to the Invisalign lab where your aligners are fabricated from a specialized plastic. When the aligners come in, you wear them for 20-22 hours per day, removing them to eat, drink, and brush.
