Invisalign® straightens your teeth using a series of clear aligner trays that are custom made specifically for you. The aligners gradually shift your teeth using a gentle pressure and are rotated every two weeks. The benefit of an Invisalign® treatment is the ability to temporarily remove your orthodontic appliances if necessary.

Every patient is different, and some people respond to treatment more quickly than others. Generally, the active treatment time ranges from one to three years, depending on the complexity of the case. Preventative (early) procedures may only take a few months.

Non-traditional approaches for straightening teeth have sprung up in recent years – including mail-order services and clear molded trays – many clinicians warn that they are not effective or safe for everyone. These cosmetic treatments are typically provided without the ongoing care and supervision of an orthodontist. Moving teeth too quickly and without expert supervision could lead to tooth loss and periodontal disease.


Dr. Nevins did a thorough review of my medical history and then gave me an exam. We were able to define a first step that made sense. He also put to rest some of the fears that had been caused by the first provider.

I came to Dr. Nevins for a second opinion and was very impressed with the level of detail explaining the options and the pros/cons. They spent a lot of time trying to get to the right answer and to make sure I understood the issues.
