COVID-19 Safety Message: Visit our practice with confidence – your safety is our top concern.
We’ve reopened in accordance with CDC, O.S.H.A., and State Dental Board guidelines to responsibly resume seeing our patients for regular dental appointments and treatment. We want to assure you of the measures we take to maintain a clean and safe environment so you can continue to receive needed dental care without fear or concern.
Gapped, crooked or crowded teeth can be more than a cosmetic problem. When your teeth are improperly aligned, the risk of dental problems can also increase. Invisalign® in Crown Point can be a great alternative to conventional braces.
What Is Invisalign?
Invisalign is a revolutionary orthodontic system that uses a series of customized transparent aligners that are worn over the teeth like a mouth guard. Invisalign clear braces are almost invisible, allowing you to enjoy complete privacy throughout your treatment. Invisalign can correct a wide range of orthodontic problems, including spacing, crowding and alignment problems without wires or brackets. When it comes to knowing how to straighten teeth, our Invisalign dentists have experience and knowledge you can depend on.
How Much Does Invisalign Cost?
Orthodontic treatment does not have to break your budget. The Invisalign cost is typically comparable to the cost of conventional braces. Your cost can vary based on the complexity of your case and other factors. Affordable Invisalign financing options and convenient payment plans are available to help with the out-of-pocket costs. Contact our office to find out more.
Invisalign Treatment Time
The average length of treatment with Invisalign can vary from 12 to 18 months. Some factors that play a role in your expected treatment time can include:
- Your treatment needs
- How much your teeth need to be rotated, aligned, or adjusted
- The number of aligners needed to complete the treatment plan
- Compliance with treatment recommendations
After a complete evaluation, our Invisalign experts can explain your expected Invisalign treatment time.
To become a qualified Invisalign dentist, a general dentist or licensed orthodontist must complete a special Invisalign dentistry course. Our Invisalign dentists have extensive experience using the aligner trays to address many types of mild-to-moderate orthodontic problems, and can help you achieve a straight, healthy smile using Invisalign in Crown Point.
Invisalign vs Braces
Many patients wonder if Invisalign is as effective as braces. Comparing Invisalign vs braces can help you better understand your options. Braces are highly effective, but Invisalign aligners can be just as effective for many orthodontic problems, including crowding, spacing and bite alignment issues. Aligners are removable, so you can brush and floss your teeth without difficulty. They are also less disruptive to to your normal routine, so you can keep eating your favorite foods.
If you are trying to choose between braces and Invisalign in Crown Point, our team can help you make the best decision for your smile.
The Benefits of Invisalign
Invisalign benefits are extensive. Along with clear aligners that show only your beautiful smile, you can enjoy the following benefits, including:
- Convenience: the aligners fit easily into even the busiest schedules, and you will only need to visit our offices every four to six weeks
- Comfort: the smooth thermoplastic will not irritate your mouth

Candidates for Invisalign
Are clear aligners right for you? This question can be answered by a visit with one of our experienced Invisalign dentists. The clear aligner system works well for teens and adults with mild-to-moderate orthodontic problem but might not be a good choice for children or those with severe bite abnormalities, crowding, or spacing. Contact our office to schedule your Invisalign consultation with our team.
Is Invisalign Covered by Insurance?
Invisalign insurance can significantly lower your out-of-pocket Invisalign cost. If your insurance plan covers orthodontic treatment, it most likely also includes Invisalign insurance coverage. Our Invisalign team can help you get the most out of your coverage so you can get the care you need.
After Invisalign Treatment
Once your smile has been straightened, you can keep it looking its best by wearing Invisalign retainers. Invisalign retainers are made with the same clear thermoplastic material used to make Invisalign and are made to fit your smile at its final stage. They will not move your teeth but will keep your teeth in their positions after Invisalign.
