Did you know that most Americans feel a great smile is a wonderful personal asset? That's what research from the American Academy of invisalignCosmetic Dentistry shows. How's your smile? If you wish to improve its appearance and long-term health, explore the many benefits of Invisalign clear aligners. At Glen Ridge Dental Arts serving Montclair, NJ, Dr. Paul Dionne uses this amazing orthodontic technology to craft straight smiles without the discomforts, time investment and awkward appearance of conventional braces.

Details on Invisalign clear aligners in Montclair
Invisalign clear aligners aren't your typical braces. They're not made of metal (or ceramic). They're not irritating or abrasive. They're not hard to clean, and best of all, they're not noticeable. How can that be?

Well, Invisalign aligners are thin, acrylic appliances which resemble teeth whitening trays. They snap over top and bottom teeth, and because of their special construction, they move crooked teeth into healthy, attractive alignment. In addition, they usually do it in under a year, a much shorter time than conventional braces need.

Invisalign aligners are fully removable, too. They come in customized pairs, 18 to 30 in all, and most patients wear them 20 to 22 hours a day, taking them out for meals and to brush and floss. As treatment progresses, an Invisalign patient visits Glen Ridge Dental Arts once a month or so to receive new aligners and for a quick check on progress.
