Want to get a straighter smile without having to wear bulky metal braces? Your wish has been granted!

Our Forest Hills, NY dentist, Dr. Gregory Mark, is making it easy for teens and adults to finally fix their crooked smiles without having to invisalignsport the dreaded metal braces that you remember from childhood. Now, you can choose to get that straighter smile the clear way when you get Invisalign.

The Clear Alternative

Did you think the only way to get a straighter smile was with metal braces? Well, think again! Invisalign uses nearly invisible plastic aligners (that look similar to a mouthguard) that will help to shift teeth into the proper alignment. And because you are wearing plastic, custom-fitted aligners instead of metal brackets and braces you’ll find that many people won’t even notice that you are wearing them.

Don’t Change Your Lifestyle

Another benefit to choosing Invisalign is that you’ll wear comfortable aligners that won’t irritate gum tissue like metal braces can. Plus, you won’t have to worry about dietary restrictions. Just remove your aligners prior to eating or drinking and then clean them out and place them back in when meals are over. The same rule applies for brushing and flossing your teeth. Invisalign easily fits into your lifestyle, not the other way around.

Is it right for me?

It’s important to know which issues Invisalign is able to address. If you are a teen or adult looking for a nearly invisible solution for fixing problem teeth, then getting Invisalign in Forest Hills might just be the best option. Common issues that Invisalign can treat include:
