Invisalign Braces in Locust Valley
Why Invisalign? For confidence, aesthetics, and health
Are you making a great first impression with your smile? If your teeth are misaligned, crooked, or gapped you may be self-conscious about your smile. It’s only natural — nearly everyone dreams about a perfect smile.
It’s time to stop dreaming. Make a beautiful and healthy smile a reality with clear braces at Locust Valley Dentists. Invisalign clear braces aren’t anything like the “metal-mouth” look of traditional braces. They’re very discreet and nearly invisible. They can be easily taken out to eat and brush, greatly reducing the risk of decay and cavities that is much higher with metal braces. There are no sharp wires or painful brackets to adjust, only a series of comfortable aligners custom made for a perfect fit.

Does Invisalign weaken your teeth?
No, as long as you keep up with a healthy brushing and flossing routine and see your dentist regularly, your teeth will not be affected by the Invisalign process.
