Invisible braces — they may sound like little more than a fantasy, but Mosaic Smiles is proud to offer Invisalign, clear braces for adults.

Invisalign Straightens Teeth Quickly, Invisibly
Clear braces are the orthodontic solution busy adults and older teens have been wishing for for ages. With Invisalign, they’re within reach. And what’s even better, Invisalign combines its discreet approach with faster treatment time overall! Let’s take a closer look at this incredible option in orthodontics.
How the Invisalign System Works
Invisalign straightens teeth with a series of custom-fit, plastic trays that are worn for about two weeks each. The aligners are planned according to your unique treatment approach, and with each new tray, you’re one big step closer to your new, more beautiful smile.
Patients in solid oral health who suffer from crowded, gapped or misaligned teeth (including crossbite, overbite and underbite) are typically good candidates for Invisalign.
Average Treatment Time
The average treatment for Invisalign is just 12 months — that’s a full six months shorter than the average for traditional metal braces. Keep in mind that each mouth is unique, so treatment time will vary. Cases which require less movement will take less time, and the most serious treatments will go beyond one year.
Many Benefits of Invisalign
The advantages of choosing a clear braces solution for orthodontics are numerous. Just a few of the most common are listed below.
- No new cleaning techniques required with removable trays
- Continue to eat what you want with Invisalign
- Invisalign requires fewer visits to the dentist
- Smooth plastic is far more comfortable than metal brackets and wires
- Never fear that people are focusing more on your braces than what you’re saying
